    As a girl who is on XBL a lot, I'd pay to have guys not randomly message me and confess their love. It's creepy.

    Actually, I don't think those girls know how to play games very well. I can start a better business. I'll set up a service where girls who are good at gaming play with guys. I bet I could make so much more that way!

    This is the equivalent of gaming porn... or at least those videochat sites... which is great business I would say. So smart of the owners to do this.

    Im not the least bit surprised this exists. It is definately pretty sad. But not surprising.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    PS: Before you all rush to get in line for your playdates, don't forget that a prostitute will probably be cheaper, she'll actually be in your couch playing with you, and she will actually sleep with you afterwards.

    1. this is extremely lame
    2. it is extremely creepy
    3. the people who would need to hire a girl to play with them are the type of elitist asshole who shouts and rages at anyone who isn't a god at whatever game it is they are playing.
    4. due to point 3, these girls are gonna be paid to get incoherent abuse shouted at them. They're gonna be expecting 'hey baby, ive got it where it counts' and 'I wouldn't mind playing with YOUR halo' instead it will be 'FUUUUCCKKK, WHAT THE FUCCAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHH ARE YOU DOOAAAGGGHHHINNNGG?!?!? YOU FUUUCKKIING NOOOBBBBB!!! AAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHH'-'What the hell is this noise?! I told you to go to bed an hour ago! TURN IT OFF AND GO TO BED!'-'BUT DAAAAAAD, IM PLAYING WITH A HOT GIRL!'-'Im turning it off and taking it away'-'BUT DAAAAAAAADD NOOOOOOOOOOOOO-...'

    Maybe it would be more entertaining than creepy sexual remarks...

    The whole gamer girl thing is being completely blown out of proportion. I saw on Spike TV's website that they had a girl gamer section. Curious, I clicked on it. All it was was pics of girls in bikinis playing Wii Sports or with a various controller. And then I go on Live to play Bioshock 2 multi and the second people see I'm a girl, I get hit on and asked out or told I suck before the round begins.

    Real gamer girls have to go through some tough stuff to just be able to play in peace. And now I bet you when I'm on Live, I'll get people asking me if I'm one of those rent-a-girls. >.<;;

    Damn males not letting me game in peace!

    Well, clearly, this is not intented as a dating service, so I see it as a very lame and amateur sex line, or, say, paying chatroulette. Is there any chance of guys being paid to pay wth girls? I'm sure that girls would pay to play with someone who would not yell insanities all the time, how about gay/lesbian/transgender players?

    Also, I think they should have something similar where a girl can pay a guy to go shopping clothes or to Ikea with them. And hold their handbag while they try on clothes.

    It's not always a question of "Would someone pay for this?" It's more...in these instances, a question of "Who would actually be willing to get paid to do this?"

    This service only exists because there are girls willing to get paid for it. Doesn't matter what guys are willing to pay for if nobody will take their money.

    It's just like porn, and other things. Yes. Lots and lots of people, cheat on their significant others, and stare at filthy things online every day with it. They are partially to blame.

    ...but at the same time. There's also the girls perfectly willing to do it.

    The only ones not to blame, are those not having anything to do with it at all.

    I think it's funny as hell. Because the people (guys) using this service? My bet is 70% of them are approaching or over the age of 30. Half of them married.

    I first thought that the idea was to make them go to the client`s house to play, that would be a little more interesting, but to pay to play online???, wow, that is what german people call "ÜBERLOOSER", I mean, I don`t know if it`s me, but I find hot gamer girls everywhere, now I don`t play videogames so much anymore as before so I can`t really relate to them!! LOL, I know more that 10 gamer girls and most of them are fine.
    Come on, go outside your house and pick up girls! it`s one of the most fun things you can do in your free time and you`ll find a lot of gamer girls.

    This doesn't surprise me at all. In fact, this is one of the more tame and less ridicilous fetishes out there. There are sites where you pay girls to insult you. No clothes get off in the process, and the girls aren't even particularly attractive. They just go on a cam and tell you you fail at life, and you pay them for it too.

    And then there's this

    Well, since this is initially offered on Xbox, you know what would make it more interesting? Microsoft's Project Natal.

    ...oh, yeah, I can totally see it now.

    Why should it be automaticly pathetic? Whoring is not a new concept, it simply evolves with the times.

    This is no different than some fat cat paying for two leggy escorts to come with him to some gala just for the formality of looking good at the gala, not for anything else.

    Convinience dude... Charming/ befriending a person into anything takes more time than buying exactly what you want from that person.

    And as far as female gamers being a kink..The only reason i could come up with is this:
    Concider it a weird mutation of shovenism: A woman who is concidered unable to do man-things is suddenly a great turn-on when she does it, and not a threat to manhood. Even though videogames are NOT a man or woman thing to do, just like watching TV isn't.. It's f***ing entertainment. Still..
    It's like there is something arousing about imagining the oposite sex as inferior for no rational reason just to be proven wrong.

    That's as far as repressed dorks are concirned anyway.. We haven't even contemplated all the pedophiles that will use the service..
