The concept of a "girl gamer" used to be mostly alien back in the early days of gaming; the hobby was obviously geared toward males and in lots of ways, it still is. But the numbers are starting to prove that females are becoming more and more interested in interactive entertainment (due in large part to the rise of mobile/casual gaming). The question is, do these girl gamers feel more secure, more accepted? Or haven't things changed enough?

I came from the days of playing seeegggggaaa with my neighbor, and Bubsy, Paper boy with my grandma on NES, then golden gun and Road rage and Zelda on 64, to carrying around an xbox in a backpack on a skateboard to plug in wherever we landed... my point, I've never felt not accepted as a chick gamer. Instead it just made me one of the guys which worked out because I liked them better anyway, less drama. Now my husband is just jealous because I'm better at COD than him 😜1
