I want to get Live just to see if I'm harassed more for my gender or my sickeningly English accent.
But anyway, girl gamers are far less common. If I'm amongst a class then girls will only join in with a mention of "my brother has..." or if it's Pokemon related. Saying that though, I don't know many gamers here in general. All the girls that I know who do play games are pretty sucky too, and the ones I find online. Men are much more common.
