Vijee gaming has never caught my attention. I grew up with Atari, Nintendo, Sega, and so on and so forth. But, no matter which system I've picked, I haven't found a system with games that made me want to continue playing for more than a session. Then I'm bored.
Well, not bored really. More like frustrated beyond belief.
vijee gaming when there are so many other forms of geek-dom to pursue?
That's right. True female geeks are rare. Especially those that still know how to be a girl and balance that with being a nerd. Nerd cred is important as a female geek. We're are always being challenged for our cred. If we skip the latest Warhammer 40K tournament to spend a day with the girls getting manis/pedis, our cred is dinged. Suddenly can't remember what episode of TNG a Trill first made an appearance, dinged again. Forget for a second that The Doctor first revealed himself to humans via BBC on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated... big ol' ding. After a time, your nerd cred, or geek points, become diminshed.
vijee game. For some reason, this really
I realize that I may not be being fair to all vijee games. Some, from what I understand, are masterpieces of entertainment, ingenuity, and creativity. They are stunning works of art.
I'm still bored by them. The idea of a visually and artistically stunning work of video game entertainment does not get my Starbuck-autographed knickers moist. But a direct challenge to my nerd status does manage to make me hot and bothered. Just not precisely in the best sense of that phrase.
vijee games that adds so much to a geek's cred? Like with the first inkling of curiosity that tempts a woman to plunge into the male-dominated world of NERD, a further study and better understanding of vijee gaming must be had. My theory is, at the end of the day, I'll learn that video games, or their lack of inclusion, are not enough to tarnish my nerd cred. But I'm willing to proceed with the experiment.
Feeling less nerd is simply not acceptable.
