More and more girls are picking up their controllers and deserve to be respected for the gamer they are. We paid money too. We don’t need the extra color or sexual innuendos. We are here to play! I want to get out the verbal ruler to smack those knuckles of ill-mannered, insensitive, and out right disgusting players.
But this isn’t only about the girls. This is about the community and having some general guidelines to allow a better gaming experience. No one wants to hear you chew your food or hear about your manhood and what should be done with it. I am tired of all the stupidity. Gaming is an excellent alternative to reruns on TV. I want to play that perfect game more often than not, even when it is a random collection of people from all over the world, young or old, male or female. You wouldn’t walk into a bowling alley and start spouting off at the suck using every curse word you have ever heard. Or head over to put-put and just verbally assault anyone playing because you are a putting god. You might do this among your friends and those you came with but not just everyone. Well, at least, I have never been to those places and had that happen. More often than not those playing online forget their manners. But as with anything online, the idea that it doesn’t matter exists. I am hear to say, it does. I care and I think others do too.
