Women and Video Games
Move on over men! Video games are not just for you anymore. It seems with the new technological age, more women are now not just nagging at their men to get off of video games, they are joining in!
Women And Video Games
For me, it all started when I got married. My husband loved playing his video games. He would get so focused in, I'd be begging him for help with the kids. I finally decided to pull the, if you can't beat them, join them. I was horrible to say the least. I started off playing Halo. A few weeks later, I started actually getting better. It didn't take long before it was a hobby that my husband and I did together. Finally after months of playing Halo, my brother and husband decided to get me playing Modern Warfare 2. I was horrible but stuck with it. After months of playing, I found what classes worked best for me.
It is funny getting into a game and you sometimes will get men telling you to go to the kitchen to make them food. I just laugh and tell them it's sad you can't make it on your own. Then I have fun beating them at the game they thought they would never have a girl beat them at. I have quite a few friends that have realized that girls can play and would much rather us be on their team than not.
Girls, just keep working at it. Naturally, it does take us longer to pick up on a game but after some practice, you will get good. Now with Halo Reach and Black Ops getting ready to come out, it's not just men getting excited, but women to. Watch out, because more of us are joining in, and be careful what you say, you might just lose to us too!
For those out there worrying about my children, don't worry, they are well taken care of and are asleep once I get on. My house is clean, and my husband is fed :).
