It really depends on the persons skill. Just because you have played 1 hour does not mean that you now how to play the game or that you know what you're doing. It also depends on your strategy. Eg. a Runn-and-Gunner man will most of the time be kept by a camper girl and vice versa. It also depends on how quick you are and what you notice on the map etc.
If you would compare men and women with the same skill level it would just depend on luck which 'side' would win.

If both players are equally experienced/skilled the woman would win by distraction cause we all know. Men are outnumbered two to one by Breasts so we have no hope.

There's an abundance of male gamers, there's obviously going to be a bunch of skilled guys in that bunch and a bunch of crappy gamers. I know two girl gamers which both kick ass on CoD6, and considering I only know 2 girl gamers that's 2 of 2 girl gamers are good.

But simply because there are more male players then I'd draw conclusion and say that men are better.

In my experience girls mostly prefer MPGs like WoW and they generally make awesome healers.

I hope there's not a lot of female gamers that follow Rodney. LOL

I think the average man would win from the average woman, for obvious reasons.

The male-brain is still wired as a hunter. You can think of other players in a FPS as prey. Man are just better in stalking and ambushing prey :P

my friend, whom is a girl, completely wipes the floor with me when it comes to FPS :S seriously.

Why does everyone say they know a girl who always own them, seriously I heard that story like 15 times and when ever I go against them I win, you're probably just reaaally bad :P

With the same FPS expierience I'm pretty sure the men would be the winner but that doesnt mean that there aren't some really good female Gamers who can beat the shit out of you!(BTW i think women are better at RTS Games because of multitasking skills)

this is not a good poll. since when does gender have to do anything with gaming?

for me fps is all about experience and chance! so whether it is a girl or a boy it does not matter nowadays!thought girl gamers in fps is pretty rare!

It depends on the game and definetaly the gamer, doesn't matter if it's a girl or boy.

And all this rubbish about girls not having as good reaction times etc just shut it... play games and have fun.

I do think playing with girl gamers is quite cool because on most of the games I play it's rare to 'bump into' one.

I'm just wondering what is a popular game with the girlies? =P

"Maximum, Game".

It has nothing to do with gender imo. It's difrent from person to person. Some are good at FPS some are not. It's as simple as that.

I have no idea Men are better with driving a car coz of something 3d vision or ... whatever but in game world ... i dunno

I've played in competitive teams with women that have ranked #1 in Australia in various games. Stats wise females have slightly slower reaction times to men, however this was never a problem, from my experience the female players I know are extremely capable.

Its also hilarious to watch girls make angst ridden little kids rage their pants off in public servers.

Skill is up to the individual, 1000 hours of playing wont make you good if you aren't actively learning from it, man or woman.

Man Rodney that really doesn't win any favors, you should go to your ex with that comment and see what her reaction is.

:o I heard in some Pacman/arcade doco, women had better reactions and hand-eye coordination?

Anonymous

1000 hours of experience doesn't mean much if you aren't actively improving from it, man or woman.

I've played in teams with women members that have ranked first in various competitions.

Gaming ability in a competitive environment is considerably affected by reaction time, general intelligence, muscle memory and more. Tests have shown that men do have slightly quicker reaction times overall. However from my personal experience women players I know are more than capable.

I don't see the point in even making the comparison though, Its always down to the player.

I see nothing sexist about this poll and those referring to this poll in being so should have another glance at the definition.

Infact, all of those who refer to this poll as being so are probably sexist themselves.

In what way is this poll sexist?

In no way does Rodney have a strong view of who would be better of both genders. He gives both genders equal hours of experience.

As to my opinion on who would win, i couldn't really say. Both parties have 1000hrs of experience. Perhaps the woman also serves in the Armed forces, giving her the upper hand? Woman sometimes also seem to have better patience. I voted women.

I also found a study that said that women spend on average 2 hours longer on the internet/computer than men.

well, i can just say a few things about this poll:
First, i haven't had very good experiences with women in games, specially in warcraft3, but there are some who are pretty much skilled.
And second, if we are talking about two gamers with the same skill level then i would say they both have the same chance to win.(it's all about skills)
Pd. Some people say that women are better in mmorpg, but you can't realy say it because in rpgs you only have to get more lvl to beat others.

depends, i get raped by a woman in call of duty 4 and she is 1 yr older than me, but i don't care she is one of my best friends :D.

There's too many variables to make a justified (instead of a generalized) answer to such a question, like there is to many questions comparing men and women.

There is an X-factor that accounts for winning out of randomness or luck, but training trumps those averages in the long run.

Men has always had the warrior inside him. I dont know about women... Maybe they'd beat us at Kitchen-Strike: Source.

generally men have less concentration and worse eye sight hinting towards women winning but i know that i have very good eyes for fps and concentration so i think if htheres many men out there like me for sure men

insert witty comment about why "other" is better.

i think right now most men are better than women at fps but that's because men play tons more hours of fps. It takes a lot of time to get your hand eye coordination down to play at high levels. Oh and I play with a controller and still beat the pants off you mouse keyboard users. lol

I say men. I've read about genes that make you ejaculate faster and also have faster reaction. I am not sure if the is on the Y cromosome. I've also heard that men have a better "understanding" of space. Women might have some, but vote goes to men because of what I think would be a natural cause of thousands of years with war, and most soldiers being men. Women on the other hand can tell the difference between colours more easily, thus maybe do well as snipers and killing snipers.

A woman would win cuz the gamer guy might happen to be a real recluse and try to chat her during the game so the woman would win whit the mans help.

I'm not trying to be offensive or nasty but I've seen it happen plenty of times when there is a girl in the lobby of a game. Other time the men get intimidated and become very offensive towards the female player(s)

Some men are jerks regardless if they are women, kids or nerds. It's in their nature to pick on perceived weakness or threats.

OH NO.....

ugh, woman, or shall i say, raging feminist, please calm down, we men and you women all know that sex has NOTHING to do with ability. 3DGAMEMAN is not being sexist by putting up such a poll and you "ladies" are acting very immature. LOL leaving comments as anonymous, yeah...really standing up against us "sexist Neanderthals"

There is some genuine food for thought in this weeks' poll
-are the way certain genders raised encourage certain behaviors or activities that would engage or better equip them in such activities or games
-is there actually differences, due to DNA, that would offer better reflexes or deeper strategic intelligence that would be beneficial to such activities or games

the list is endless and please don't be so quick to soap box to preach to us of "your" oppression or our stupidity....we are well aware of it ;)
