Nah. Too much cooperation required. I'm all about the Kingdom of Loathing.

The funny thing is that WoW gets more guys laid in a week than CoD ever will. The female pop on WoW is right at about 50%. What is it on CoD? 2%? Less?

You mean WoW people actually meet each other? In meatspace? ;)

jsid-1207169671-590223  Phelps at Wed, 02 Apr 2008 20:54:31 +0000

Oh yeah. And meatspace is the right term. It's not as bawdy as SCA, but close.

wow addict here...

When I get together with the guys on game nights, though, it's all Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6 titles.

lol, half the people in my WoW guild are women.

jsid-1207173486-590227  Peter at Wed, 02 Apr 2008 21:58:06 +0000

Yeah, about 1/2 my guildies are women as well, and it's a 250 person guild.

jsid-1207180078-590229  Russell at Wed, 02 Apr 2008 23:47:58 +0000

Yeah, sure, a 17 year old male posing as a woman doesn't count.

I play WoW.

With my wife.

And my daughter.

I play WoW. There are quite a few man-woman couples in my guild. And one gay guy with his boyfriend too.

Also a WoW player, here. We have a lot of couples in our guild who play together, and one of my co-workers is always relating stories to me of her female predatory guildmates, flying men in from as far as Australia for week-long trysts. That sort of thing never happens to me.

On the FPS front, I prefer GRAW2 or BF1942 to CoD.

Aces High, Richthofen's Skies, and Target: Tobruk are more to my taste.

Looking at this from a different perspective, doesn't Google tailor your results, including sponsored ads, based on your search history?

Would that indicate a reason why I don't get that kind of return when I do the same Google search?

Just what have you been googling, Kevin?

Actually, I found that screenshot at Pixdaus.com. There are some GREAT photos there, plus a lot of other images like this one.

I know six people who play WoW. SIX! None of them have ever gotten laid. None. Sure, they "know" (in the game) women from the game, lots of them, in fact. And they're constantly vying for their attention.

I'm sorry, but I can't believe that ANY videogame will get you laid. Or help you get laid. Or may accidentally result in helping getting you laid.

jsid-1207315220-590312  HKpistole at Fri, 04 Apr 2008 13:20:20 +0000

btw, Kevin, what's your COD handle?

I go by "Dilanger" so if you run across me, spare my life he he.

I've never played CoD online. Hell, at this point I don't play at all. My home machine is about four years old, and the video card died about a year ago, so I'm running the onboard video, and it isn't powerful enough to support the game.
