Gamecrush: Pay To Play With Gamer Grills [NSFW]

image

A new website allows you to pay real money to meet "PlayDates" and play videogames with them over your PC or on Xbox Live.

In a daring attempt to make some cash off of lonely male gamers, a new website called Gamecrush.com will facilitate meetings between Players and PlayDates. You can play some of the more popular games over Xbox Live (GTA4, Halo) with your PlayDate or a more casual browser game like Battleship. For $8.25, you will get to play a game with a woman (or 2!) over Xbox Live and you can choose to interact with them using a webcam and a microphone. Xbox live games typically last 10 minutes while browser games are charged by the minute (8 min. minimum). PlayDates state whether they are in a "Dirty" mood or merely "Flirty" and you can search for profiles based on that designation in addition to what game they want to play and ratings. Gamecrush.com launches tomorrow, but there are already hundreds of PlayDate profiles you can browse through. Seriously, go look.

From the FAQ: "There are two types of GameCrush members - Players and PlayDates. Players can search PlayDate profiles and select which PlayDate they want to play. Players pay and PlayDates get paid for each game they play. After a game is completed we ask the Player to rate their gaming experience which is recorded on the PlayDate's profile."

Internet comedians have already created false profiles such as Gabe Newell, a bear and a grill. Get it? A gamer grill! Genius!

What are Gabe Newell's turnoffs, according to his GameCrush profile? Developing console games, Salads, People who can't handle a big beautiful man. I might also add finishing Half-Life Ep. 3 onto the list, amiright?

Unfortunately, the test period is over and the front page at GameCrush.com now shows a countdown to launch. Luckily, I was able to grab screenshots of some of the PlayDates before the site went to full countdown mode.

Here are some of the lovely ladies you can game with:

Profile: I love gaming co-op! There are NOT enough co op games :( I am really into zombie games and enjoy playing Left 4 Dead 1 & 2! I can have a foul mouth on occasion when really into gaming, but I still have fun and enjoy myself a lot more when chatting with others! I'm no expert at games but I like to have a good time!

Profile: Pip-Girl (blonde) and Thirteen (brunette) are two best friends with a profound love of gaming. Amazed at the lack of team profiles on GameCrush, they've decided to go two-on-one with the site's most gracious gamer guys.

And for you gamer girls, there's a few good men looking to have a PlayDate with you too. Take a gander at:

I would pay any amount of money if I can play with Gabe Newell.

OT: Thats just sad and pathetic.

Can I play MGO with Hideo Kojima? If not, not interested. I play with Girls online for free anyway.

Calumon: But they don't wanna play with you though. ^^

This is beyond pathetic.

I'm sorry, but paying to play with girls over the internet, when there are hundreds of people already online is just stupid.

Are gamers really this pathetic?

I mean, I consider myself to be a pathetic individual, but I would never stoop this low.

I have a female friend that did this for a little while, except she actually met up with the guys and played video games in the same room.

This is disgusting, at least prostitution can have a splinter of "honesty" and "integrity" (if you see it as yet another "job"). sometimes.

And here I thought internet dating couldn't get anymore pathetic....

Fascinating. Seriously. How far the society can go on in making money out of the avarage hornyness of a gamer. Im pretty sure it will have enough of willing customers, after all who could resist some yber-sechs in between fragging in Halo or bringing a new level of prostitution to GTA...

Then..damn where can i sign up to earn some easy money while teasing poor young guys with too much money on their hands again while playing video games? *shifty*

Well, you know some people are that pathetic.

What THOSE are the girls? Like to see how the faux lesbians play online!!! *Ahem...*

Youve got a librarian, a fat chick and copy and paste lesbians. Save your money and spend it on a night out instead.

I've been laughing at this for a good 5 minutes now. Thanks for the chuckle.

I got excited when I saw the headline, then I saw this was about gamer girls. I had a steak ready and everything.

How low can we gamers go?

And I thought Gaming Prostitution was when people pay others to help them get multiplayer achievements...

Well, this will bring in money. It will also require a VERY thick skin on the part of the actual PlayDates. Think about it - the mental profile of the person likely to seek out such services. Now consider the average level of communication in most online communities. Now put that together with "OMG GIRL!!!11one!1" mentality. It's a disaster waiting to happen...

I don't know what's worse:
- The terrible profiles depicted in this article
- The whole idea of this website
- The fact that this website will probably make money hand over fist as soon as they get some 'paid lookers' in there.

I want to weep for, and laugh at humanity all at the same time.

I do enjoy the fake profiles, though! Just hilarious.

Oh that's just tragic. You know what's worse than it actually existing? There's obviously enough cash in it to start a business.

LFPlayedates for 25 mann VOA, have healz, need off tank and DPS.

That's a World of Warcraft joke if you can't tell.

Camwhoring for the Console Generation! Huzzah!

Haha. The description for 'SunnyBoy' was hilarious.

If they join a game like Halo will it be just them or will they go for matchmaking and then be with a group of others? I can imagine them getting ripped if it was with other people.

And also I can imagine that it could end with people telling their friends to add the 'play dates' on XBL.

I think its a great idea for people who are too pathetic, I mean shy, to be able to talk to girls without paying them. This site brings gaming one step closer to mainstream acceptance, so I like it.

I can see this being popular with high schoolers. Kinda like those "hot girl chat hotlines" but with Master Chief involved. I can see people doing this, and I can see this going horribly wrong.

I might e-pimp my wife into this. She is good at video games (shooters and RTS at least) and has a sexy microphone voice. Why not make cash playing video games. Not all the girls are dirty (according to what i've read) and a hot picture will get you an invite.

There are some crazy rich lonely fatties who would use this service.

Shockolate:

+ 1 cookie for you good sir!

Is it anybit ironic that i JUST commented on a forum post based on this, and yet this still brings up the same amount of WTF?

Hmmmm, actually, considering there's so few male gamer's on there, perhaps i should join this new GameCrush thing.

Ladies?

But seriously though, the Gabe bit cracked me up, sadly the links 404 when i click them.

Please. This is simply an extension of those "live cam" websites, except now it's "gamer-flavored!" and you can use your Xbox.

Quite sad and pathetic, really. Get out from behind the xbox, or the computer, and meet people. Or you could use chat-roulette... *eyeroll*

Jandau:

That is a truly terrifying truth. Either that, or they'll get the people who can't talk more than one-word sentences. "hi" "ur pretti" "boobs?" will likely be par for the course. I feel genuinely bad for these girls!

... I don't know whether to laugh or cry...

Wow, just... yeah.... Really? I mean I know some people are desperate but really? I get the concept of lets make money of sad lonely people (I'm evil enough to cheer it on) but this is just sad.

I suddenly feel the urge to laugh out loud and cry my eyes out at the same time... This is incredibly pathetic. If some guy really wants to play games with a girl so badly, then why not go pick one up for a date then bring her back for some split-screen or something? Sounds like a much more fun (and cheaper) way to do it than this. I mean, just wow...

So it's like hookers... but you can't even touch them..... What the fuck is the point? You're basically paying to talk to a girl.

It's good to see I've found yet another thing I'm not going to be spending any money on.

I wonder how many people are going to sign up for this, and also how did they con those poor girls into whoring them selves out like this?

Another waste but I bet some will try it out, for the giggles. At least, I hope, if not, I am losing my faith in the gamer community. The 'pathetic' side of it that is.

This is really some kind of legit escort service.

Using this site would just make me feel dirty, more so. You may as well just cut out the middle man and go straight to a cam whore. Or a regular whore. Plus I hear there's porn on the internet now.

However if I were a girl I'd definately do this. You'll be getting paid to play games and you don't even have to take your top off unless you want to.

This... is just plain sad.

If this service gets any honest-to-goodness use, I shall officially give up in gamers having souls.

Sooo if you play a game on xbox live with a girl from there isn't it just like a normal game?
Maybe with the small exception of playing with a girl.

As for casual games i think it will go more like this.

Why would anybody pay to play against other people that you can most likely find on x-box live or PlayStation Network?

If it was developers like Gabe Newell or Tim Schafer than yes, I could see paying to play against them. Just regular people though? No.
