I've got the fire extinguisher of heavenly truth and justice (and egomania). Don't you worry, dear.

9/10 You only loose one point for being an honest troll, Cosmic.

That doesn't mean that your opinions are not with substance however, some people merely feel different about certain things. Attempting to argue with those who wish to win is a pointless venture though.

To remain on topic, I've found that these dating websites are merely only a symptom of our society and can be found to have use for the less socially adept individuals around us, both male and female. Nothing wrong with an additional form of communication, even if that communication boils down to; 'Lets bang'

Be glad that these types of websites and more traditional prostitution are our only current signs of possible depravity, it could be far, far worse.

The implications of such a website on what it means for gaming is worse, surely 'gamers' couldn't be so socially inept as to need a matchmaker to get some action? Mmhn, I suppose it depends on the individual.

Great idea in all sincerity. At the very least you know the other person is as much a geek as you are even if you have to do the walk of shame the next day XD

what is the walk of shame?

I'm not even gonna bother responding with a reasonable post. Let's see how well this will turn out.

Hm. That's a new gif.

I guess you can say a lot of women are about to see these gamers "masks"!

Yeah, that wasn't funny.

Adam Jensen:
Why just gamers? Other people like sex as well. They are putting limits on their business idea for no reason. Are gamers suddenly the only group of people who can't get sex?

No, but at least train enthusiasts usually don't have the delusion that they're ever going to get laid.

I feel so alone...

Hey guys I just signed up and got my first date, she's beautiful, looks like Emma Watson, is a rocket scientist and wait... she's a casual gamer!! Please I have standards.

I honestly don't understand why people assume that dating sites are taboo, for the socially inept, or immature. I'm admit I may be biased, I use a free dating site.

Why?: A. Less time consuming. B. Better compatibility. C. No more blind dates or set-ups. D. Wider selection. E. Cuts out all the relationship/married/uninterested.

It's a hell of a lot easier and cheaper than going to the bar. True; this is a hookup site. But there's a bit of solace in knowing two things about a body before a roll in the hay.

As an aside: Anyone who thinks sex is all about personal gratification must just be very bad in the sack.

Well there's that Asian country where a large majority of school kids think it a normal bonding experience to surprise gangbang prostitutes.

Yeah chew on that one for a minute.

I don't get it... how does "being a gamer" actually impact how great it would be to bang someone? I don't see how they correlate.

If anything the experience would probably be awful because they need to use the site to begin with.

OT: I think this is absolutely hilarious. I can only imagine how well it's going to do (no sarcasm, I'm reminded of a similar venture that was posted here a while ago).

My advice:
Go the route of dignity. Save your money. Dating/Hookup websites take shitloads of your money for NO GUARANTEES. If you're not meeting anyone special out there in the world or online with a free site why not just take a little of that extra cash that you're NOT wasting on a website and hire an escort. At least that's an open, honest relationship that takes care of the needs of all involved.

Well, if they happen to have some sort of costume fetish, you could at least count on something interesting if your partner is a gamer :P

Ya know, Date-A-Gamer isn't a bad idea. I do think that more generalized dating sites would do good for people looking for a specific quality in a lover.

Shag A Gamer, on the other hand. I mean, yeah - on some online dating services, you will get people who are just looking to bump the nasty. But thats generally a bad idea -for the same reason 1 night stands are. You don't know that persons sexual history, you don't know if that person has been contaminated with an STD, and its hard to get a good read on a persons sanity if you're just looking for a quick way to relieve some stress.

That being said, from a business stand point, its genius. Gamers are known to have large amounts of income that they don't mind parting with - see anyone with a $1200 gaming rig or a collection of games. And, undoubtably, there is a nasty stereotype of gamers being virgins or not getting a lot of action. So yeah, charging people so they can meet people and get down with their bad selves isn't that bad of an idea - it will be successful. But still.

Online dating = not bad idea. Sure, you'll get a few... characters... but in the end, it can work out.

Online sex = enjoy your herpes. If you're lucky.

Not if you know the free ones it is'nt :P

On topic though: Good on anyone who wants to join up...go find a little joy and happiness even if it is for only a few minutes. Live your life the way you want to!

I know plenty of guys who'd disagree.

I honestly don't really find any humor in it other than the outrageously high monthly fee.

Walk into any bar in the entire world, including Dave and Buster's or any one with a video game theme. Pick out the most beautiful girl there and strike up a conversation about the possible interpretations of Killer 7. Let me know how it goes.

*facepalm*

Just.

*facepalm*

Your nickname provides the answer.
Ok, seriuosly, gamers in society are looked down as "nerds" and altrough this is not correct, society thinks it is, and as such they are the opposite of jocks, and in societies eyes jocks are the sex beasts, so it comes to a conclusion that geeks should be unable to have sex. In other words - society is fucked up, but thats that.

On topic: how does this differ from 1000 other sex sites other than it has a word "gamers" in its title?

That's what I was thinking. Aiming a dating site at gamers makes sense, since common interests are a good thing to have when dating. Aiming a hook up site at gamers, on the other hand, really makes no sense. If it's really nothing but sex, no plans to do anything after the fact, what does gaming have to do with it?

I personally find this site disgusting.

Let's put aside that it's not a soulmate-finder, just a service supplying somebody to be your bangbuddy. That's all well and good, STD risk and being murdered by a horny stranger withstanding.

Not people wanting to casually boink that bothers me, but the person who pitched "for gamers" to a roomful industry types and they totally bought this idea because deep down some part of their brains made a connection between the stereotypical "reluctant" nerd virgin and sex + vidjagames = money money money. Essentially, they're pimping videogame culture to turn a profit. They're carpetbagging our hobby. And that makes my blood boil.

Double post.
