    My parents came and woke me up this morning. Why? Because they moved my sister's PC and needed me to plug everything back in.
     
    All 3 USB cords and an HDMI Cable.

    I just remembered one. I over heard someone at my school mention that they couldn't play a game (i think it was LOL) because they didn't have an i7...

    Not everyone want kids. Or at the very least, not when they are still in their twenties and enjoying life. Which you can't really do with kids.

    Whats the issue?

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to keep the freedom of not having to deal with a kid everyday for at least 18years.

    Cause nothing says 'high quality expensive GPU' like blue PCBs and what appears to be a large sticker on the cooler.

    Found this old picture of my desk as it was in 2011: baseline MacBook Pro 13" of that year, PS3 on its own monitor, Apple Cinema Display (which my father scratched :v ). On the right there used to be my previous assembled PC. Most of the stuff on this picture is either gone or somewhere else. Even the desk itself has moved lol.

    Will post my actual desk when I get the chance of... sorting it out lol.

    Yes. I just sent mine in yesterday for repair because instead of the purple tint in your picture, in bright light (especially when outside) it developed a horrible green tint. From what I've found online, it's related to a new sensor in some of the later models.

    In story driven games you're not supposed to identify as the character. That's the whole point of story-driven games. It's a protagonist, with a fixed story that only makes sense within certain boundaries and fixed characters.
     
    It makes no sense making it a female character if it was supposed to be a story about a man. And a female player could just as easily idenfity with (not as) that character as a male would. Just like the opposite is true. Every man could identify with Jade, or Zoë or Samus or Lara Croft.
     
        They will then realize that nobody will buy it. But that's ofcourse not because nobody is interested in playing that tosh, but because of toxic masculinity that has brainwashed everyone. Projection set to 11.

    Can we stop calling them feminists though? I'm all for equality (which does make me a feminist, technically), but those people (including Anita Sarkeesian) are misandrists.

    I do think it is to do with intimidation and confusion, by some people women are placed on a pedestal that we're some how different to men, when in reality we're not, we just wanna be treated like a person not an object, there will always be feminist extremists (so this is who you should hate when you hate feminism, not actual feminism) and there will always be misogynists, the main point is to focus on being gender equal. 
     
    We do live in a male dominated world, some will disagree with me and say men get shat on just as much as women, but it shouldn't be an argument of who has it worse, it should be advocating equality across the spectrum, focus on the issues rather than infighting about who has it worse because otherwise a stalemate is met and no progress can happen.
     
    Harassment is very real and the same harassment applies in game
     
    Watch this video for an example, you may ask "well how was she harassed?"
     
    When was the last time you as a male walked down a street and had guys talk to you like that? The same thing applies to women in games, some don't leave you alone when they discover you're a girl and the attention can be nice because it makes you feel wanted but there's a fine line between getting attention and getting  harassed, see some people get offended when they're accused of being harassed because it's probably not their intention to cause fear or panic but the main thing is to just treat a person whether they're male or female like a human being. 
     
    From personal experience when I didn't cater to a guys attention or pander to his ego he became very abusive and almost threatening towards me and turned people against me in a game, even said that I was lying about being a girl and other things unless I showed my breasts or done him a sexual fan sign pic, granted he is a vast minority but that lead me to not wanting to play the particular game in question with other people. (RuneScape, which I'm an avid fan of and still play albeit alone)

    The reason you don't see many women seems to be due to a combination of societal norms and real differences in the sexes.
    It's very interesting actually, Sweden's done a few studies (being the most "gender-equal" nation) and even within their country, while reduced compared to the U.S., there's still a strong correlation of women in roles like Nursing and men in roles like Engineering; it's really cool stuff to learn what natural inclinations people have even beyond their sex
     
    For me the important part is that people realize men can be just as good nurses and women just as good engineers, or rather that their sex is not a real factor in the quality of their work.
     
    Video games are a form of entertainment that now rival movies; big productions, millions of dollars invested, long-periods of time spent on development, professional actors and directors, i mean they've really taken off in the past decade.

    Basically it's as simple as this.
     
    Some people are dicks, most are nice and decent people, it's just those that scream the loudest (B,C & D) are heard the most where as A (a group I find most people the majority of) rarely get attention because they're so few and far between.
     
    It's just a case of the minority ruining it for the majority.

    This has also been my experience. (Except maybe option D. was most prevalent in FPS games as well as MMOs)
    But sexism within gamers is not a correlated thing.
    Sexism exists, and like any other labeled group like "gamers", you'll find sexists in that group.
    But there's nothing about video games or "gaming culture" that's sexist.
     
    Gamergate was weird, i'll still defend it because ethics and reliable information with consumer backlash was always the main focus, something other consumer cultures have also done and continue to do in other media.
    The problem was when GGers started using aGGro tactics and pulling the same bullshit.
