I'm a man and I say that a woman would 99% of the time be WAY better than a man at FPSs. It's a fact that women are much better hand dexterity when it comes to finite detailed motions. It applies to everything, female painters are usually more precise, company's that hire people for soldering tend to favor women because they are better at it, welding is the same way. If you don't believe me, watch and IReapZz montage (Xbox quickscoping.) She's defiantly not bad looking and is absurdly accurate.

Men, of course are better. But I want to know the real world application where it's on even footing?O_o

The only time I ever had a Girlfriend that played games was when I would get bored and want to spend some quality time with them but doing something that I liked to do and would had them a controller and we'd play. Generally they like doing other things than I do and I'm secure enough in myself that my hobbies don't have to be their hobbies.

But I have been seeing more and more that girls are getting involved with gaming and I applaud them for it. However, no self respecting guy I know would let a girl beat them. We're just way too competitive and it doesn't matter how old or what sex your opponent is, you don't want to be Pwned at will by them.

I mostly play multi fps. For sure there are more men playing, but the women at various servers/not so many of them--for whatever reason--stand out as some of the better players. Maybe the less successful women don't keep playing or maybe the less successful men do! I don't know, but I play pretty good and some of my biggest competitors are women! Hey "no one wants to get bashed by a girl, but it happens" haha.

It depends on who has the best determination to win.

As men, we are disposable - society decides to keep the future generation at home (the baby makers..). So send those with courage up to the front!
I think some of us would rather be killed quick than hear another minute of a cranky, nagging baby maker.. (and I have 20+ years and counting) ;-)

Well it doesnt really have to be a men or women, i think this is from person to person, but the fact that there are more man the woman playing doesnt mean that we are better than them.

oh god... there's male and female gamers and the females are not as good as the males, why? not because they're worse but because they're not as serious about it. the level they play at is lower than the male top level.

OF COURSE they'd be equal if they were of equal skill, that's what skill is about, how good you are. things that matter in fps like reactions, tactical thinking, aim and such is things you can practice in. there's nothing between the genders that would stop you from becoming the best.

Yeah I've noticed that a lotta girls get motion sickness from gaming. My gf can't even scroll quickly on a monitor without feeling sick.

Women must be better because if a guy finds out a girl is playing a FPS, they are going to be more focus on getting to know the girl and going easy on her than, "Yea, I got a HO HEAD SHOT B%*#!" Unless your Rodney, who's happily married.

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

Whenever there is a girl playing a game, all the guys are hovering themselves around her, and 70% of the time it's a little 12 year old kid. Free headshot?

I'm thinking men, for one simple reason, BLOODLUST!
You might think this is too simplistic, but its seems that every woman ive come accross online, they dont quite have that final bit of ruthlessness in them to 'put the bullit in the bunny', as it were.
Of course there are exceptions to the rule, but on the whole, men are just that extra bit more savage, and IMO, it gives us the edge in FPS.
Other genre's though, its not quite the same story though, evrything is up for grabs!

I play cod4 (pc) and im quite a balanced player:
normal mode: good +
promod: good +
codjumper: better then good
zombie: one of the best

and i have a girl gamer mate who can do al these things well and play them with the same skill but the consistency isnt there :/ im sorry its gotta be men...

I think it's just how well they play. I don't think there is much of a difference of how well they play gender wise.

My wife always complains about getting motion sickness, so I guess I win.....

I voted in the other category.Obviously sex doesn't matter and will not determine the outcome.Why ask such a stupid question?

Just trying to generate page hits no doubt,and it worked well done Rodney.

I beat my sister in FPS games and she used to play cs1.6 and quake 3 professionaly

I wish I could buy computers for 5$

Anonymous

I don't know guys... my sister gets banned from Bad Company 2 servers because shes "hacking."

AKA her quick scope looks like It's auto aim... Yea I don't even play if I cant be on her team, otherwise I die too much...

And NO I usually carry my team in MW2 so I'm not THAT bad at FPS.

Not a fair poll, there are probably more men here on this website.

Men are much more competitive then women, and will therefore always strive to get better and to be the best. Men have a different mentality and therefore are better.

Scraping the barrel for poll questions? :/

Neither gender is better. We're all human. Unless boobs somehow get in the way of being able to move the mouse properly, we all perform on the same level. It's a matter of skill and practice.

Haha, looks like there's not enough woman that visit this site...

Personally I'm going for Men not just because I am one, but because of the hormones ;)

Men, the pro teams are separated for a reason and even the pro female gamers agree that the men are much better than them (hence why they're separated). Perhaps this will change as the player base shifts to more females playing FPS.

it wont even matter if women has 3000hrs of experience.. men will always win... in theory it might not sound true but in reality it does.. u know that dont u?.

LOL when i know a woman who plays FPS i will marry with her

Lol, i've got to girls in my class who play MW2 both very good. But, a bit to young for you XD (age: 15)

If they are equally skilled and have the exact same amount of experience, You have to do some science research.
I've heard that women have shorter reflex times. Some fighter pilots say that women make excellent jet fighter pilots.

If that's true, then there is a possibility that females may have an advantage over us males.

Anonymous

Well.. This dosen't come down to men or women.. If they have the equal amount of experience, it'll depend mostly on luck, and a little bit on who has the better aim. You can have all the experience in the world, but your aim won't be as good as an other player with the same amount of experience..

Males have bigger egos and women have bigger....yah, so unless they can come up with some dirty tricks the male will win.

But i think when i show/train her how to Dominate the Game then i will say there are no Different between women or men in the Game.Not much Women got these hard interest to Rule a Game but when they got this then be carefull what you say.lol.

When both players have equal experience (let's assume they learned from it for both sides), I believe the winning traits would come down to reaction time and the ability to adapt to an opponent or situation. If the woman is good at adapting, being patient, and not getting hot and bothered, she could dominate. I've gotten stomped by women so hard in Call of Duty, I dare not say I am better by default when I rarely get to play them anyway.

Granted no doubt that there are exceptions, but if you take the average female vs a male at killing games even with the same experience my vote always goes to the men first. I don't think that is a sexist question or answer IMHO. These other insulting comments about the kitchen I don't understand because actually I'm a better cooking and cleaner than most women, but then again this is all just general questions and most of us here are males feeding on our egos.

Strange that dressmaking and cooking are seen as 'women's jobs' but the top chefs and designers are all male

Anonymous

But that makes sense! Women wait for men pay the tab, so men know what goo grub is. And designers, even though most of them are half-women(ish), there is still a part of them (though in denial) that really know what a man likes to see..

probably women, guys tend to get over-competitive more easily and that can lead to mistakes (at least i do, and most of my friends do), but if you were talking about gaming at a professional level i don't think there's much of a difference

I agree with a lot of guys being over compettive and often obsessive however that's what makes them good. It drives them to practice more. It's the same reason why men are usually at the top of specific fields, they obsess over that one particular field.
