The evolution of girl gamers
Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades?
- 1993 - 64% of girls reported playing video games
- 1996 - "home use had increased for fourth grade girls"
- 1998 - "both male and female adolescents play video games on a regular basis."
- 1999 - "88% of the female college students … surveyed were video game players."
- 2007 - 20-47% of adolescent girls play video games
- 2008 - "94% of girls play video games"
- 2010 - "Forty percent of all game players are women."
- 2012 - "Women 18 or older represent a significantly greater portion of the game-playing population (30%) than boys age 17 or younger"
- 2013 -"adult women are nearly half of all video game players"
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e
Been playing since I was old enough to hold the NES controller.
This chart does display some useful information, it accurately tells us how old the creator of the chart is. I’m guessing 24-25, which is way too old for this shit but explains why they seem to think girls only started playing games after he got out of high school.
Tumblr user catbountry makes an interesting observation.
Another useful observation? It was during the early 90’s that video games were becoming more aggressively marketed to boys.
So by 1995 the message that video games were for boys had taken root enough that you started seeing kids on the playground expressing befuddlement that girls could even play them.
So this chart tells us that this poor sap allowed himself to be so molded by advertisers that when the same girls he grew up with got old enough to be like “yo this is fucked up,” he cites his own experiences as evidence that they never liked them, despite the fact that those experiences were molded by advertisers chasing his demographic.
"You are wrong because as long as I can remember the vidya was marketed to me and now I’m noticing that you’re not happy about that."
You’ve been had, buddy. You’ve been played for a sap and you don’t even know it.

My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.
Dude. It’s genius.
