    Seems like no-one cares anyway but the results of the test were... *Drumroll please* Girls actually buy more games than boys but boys spend more. The questionaire is now over so don't bother following the link anymore

    The real results were that girls enjoy answering questionnaires more than boys.

    There's two types of girl gamers. One that has a pink Xbox 360 controller and tell everyone on XBL that she happens to be a girl so that everyone would suck her e-penis and then there's one that actually plays games like a normal person. The latter is nonexistent, therefore, males will buy more games to go hunting for said female gamers to suck her e-penis.

    It seems the men don't waste their time with petty Google spreadsheets.

    Wouldn't that be an e-clitoris? The worst thing about the whores is that all the goddamn basement nerds decide to white knight if you say something she cries at.

    Also the latter isn't completely nonexistent.

    hmmm, i think most boys play (usually for the violence XD). all of the guys in my class plays video games but only about 20% of girls play.Usually the girls that are awesome play video games in MY class, the rest are just geeks i guess XD

    The results are based off ONLY PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY TOOK THE TEST, doesn't really mean girls buy more or guys spend more.

    If you want accurate results, calcute how many people there are on earth, divide by two, make one side for girls and he other for boys. Figure out how many games there are in the world, and figure out which games are more guy or girl orientated. Add up all the games and prices each side has. Ta-da!

    LOL not exactly sure if it'll look.

    Unfortunately flaming isn't allowed here, so I'll just say how narrow minded that statement is. [​IMG]


    Anyway... the poll wasn't open for very long to get an accurate result and I think the question could have been worded better.

    I would have to say that I know girls that own more games than me. Most teenage girls nowadays don't even realize the fact that they could get them through other means, seemingly Myspace and Facebook are a bigger trend for them than gaming. Most of the Tempers here are male (I think) and most of the newcomers and (maybe) most of the existing members pirate their games. So I believe that girls tend to buy more games than boys. If I offended anyone, I'm am sorry.

    Hopefully. I'd hope you don't have a pink xBox 360 controller and try to get guys to suck your *-p*n*s.

    You spelled e-penis wrong, bro.

    And I would hardly classify you under the latter, iPikachu.
