I'm a fan of all the classics: Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, Soul Calibur, Mario Bros, etc. I've added a few more to the list, more modern, like, Halo and Mortal Kombat and Call of Duty.
But I mean...do guys really get excited when a girl plays video games? Because on one hand, the guys at Gamestop always get super flustered whenever I go inside to buy something (like when I got the new Dissidia game the other week, the cashier kept stuttering, dropping things, blushing, etc.) and my brother loves it when his girlfriend plays xBox with him. But one guy told me he didn't really care, and I heard from another that it made him uncomfortable.
Is this just a personal thing or is it generally really a big deal? And I'm talking about a younger crowd, gentlemen, nothing above the mid-twenties, obviously.
Oh, and in addition. For anyone familiar with the term, I like to "cosplay" a lot. Tifa Lockhart and Lightning Farron and Sakura Haruno being my most successful - a guy I was talking to made a point to tell me how "hot" that was. Is this a truth for the majority of men or just the hardcore geeky gamers at Gamestop?

There's "The Gamer Girl", or the one who spends her effort flaunting herself in front of the nerds to feel attractive, and there's the female gamer, which is the girl that actually knows a damn thing about video games and can actually play them. The first one is simply attention whoring, which is always unattractive. The second one isn't necessarily attractive, but as a hobby it is one that I could enjoy with her.
Being a gamer doesn't inherently make you attractive (though if you can pull off a Tifa Lockheart cosplay, you have to have a damn good figure), but it does make you more appealing to those who share your hobby.
I sometimes played video games with my ex, and I sometimes enjoyed it (she was a REALLY bad loser, which kind of ruined it). When she wasn't being a baby about it (it was whenever she lost at something, even if it wasn't my doing), it was really fun.
