6. They’re usually into other geeky stuff too

If you’re a gamer girl, chances are you’re into other geeky stuff too. Like science fiction and fantasy. Superhero movies and television shows. Comics. Speculative literature. Anime. Action figures. Board games. Cosplay. The list goes on.

What’s awesome about being a gamer is that, officially, you’re also a geek. And being a geek is one of the greatest things anyone can be, because it means you also live in a world of cool ideas. You thrive on creativity and imagination.

You enjoy video games because they satisfy your need for fantastical what-if scenarios, for things no one has ever seen or experienced. And it’s for this reason that gamer girls – and most gamers, for that matter – also enjoy watching Star Wars on the big screen, collecting Play Arts Kai action figures, or raving about Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Many of the most popular cosplay girls – such as Jessica Nigri, the Spiral Cats, and Alodia Gosiengfiao – are gamers. And, if you observe, they also do cosplay of characters from geeky movies, television, and comics. Likewise, video game music cover artists such as Lindsey Stirling and Taylor Davis are gamers who also enjoy other forms of geek entertainment. Those artists you see on Deviant Art, Tumblr, and Instagram? A vast majority of them are geeks and gamers.
