    Say 'hell ya'. And recommend one that's closest to both your interests.

    I like how the question is phrased as if "she" is some Borg collective that is separate from the rest of the world, which is obviously everyone else to whom "she" means something specific.

    Are we seriously using this language in 2013? [mod edit]

    On the thread note, I don't date non-gamers.

    Favorite MMO: Vanilla WoW
    Currently playing: GW2, EVE
    Excited for: Wildstar, maybe?

    I said "no thank you"

    *kicks myself*

    ( ~20 years ago, I entirely missed the whole MUD scene, despite the invitation of a woman I was dating to play with her ... I don't normally dwell on the road not taken, but that's one of those things where I just have to shake my head at myself )

    I would finish the relationship, since girls that have interest in mmos have a big chance of being weirdos. :D

     

    I am a casual gamer (at least until a AAA sandbox comes) and i try not mixing game junk with RL important stuff.

    I would recommend EQ2 for her since the community there doesn't seem as hung up on women playing the game as other titles.

    The problem is we don't know who she is. You are missing the most valid and valuable part of the whole discussion. "her".

    Other than some extreme games (dark fall, EVE - which, depending on her personality, she might like) there is a lot out there.

    If I were you and I had a girlfriend who expressed ANY interest in gaming I'd faint dead away. Seriously, in all my years the closest I could come was a girlfriend who liked Myst.

    Then, after my trip to the hospital because I hit my head on the way down, I would get several different games. Like WoW, LOTRO, The Secret World.

    then I would play all with her and see what she liked and what she didn't. Go from there.

    I'd also introduce her to Diablo III. You both can do that and it would be fun in a duo.

    Oh, you meant that as a rhetorical question.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    GOOD POINT!

    Ok, "NO GAMES" except the one where you are a policeman and she needs to be rescued from anything she wants to be rescued from.

    Don't lose the keys.

    Sometimes i wonder if people like yourself and people like myself exist in some sort of uncrossable vacuums.

    Where I am gamer girls are no big deal at all and nobody cares about them. o.O

    Ok, all fun had, the best starter game for a female (I believe) would be World of Warcraft with Everquest 2 running a close second.  The reasons are obvious.  WoW is easy to pick up and learn, and EQ2 has what I believe is the most expansive guild house/hall decorating system of any MMO ever.

    My wife clings to that game (EQ2) for no other reason.  She won't kill a dragon to get good armor, but you tell her that there is some unique of fancy sofa in its horde and she's all spit and vinegar.

    My daughter, on the other hand, clings to WoW because in it she can be a badass, and she enjoys being a badass. (She was a badass in EQ1 also, but that was too complicated for her boyfriend to play).

    I find it funny how you guys are treating her as some sort of idiot from another planet (no offense). Be it man or woman and whatever game, just take them through the tutorial and they are fine. Does not take much of a brain to get through most games these days.

    As a female gamer I do find it annoying how guys immediately assume I won't know anything the moment I try a game... Or is this more of an age issue and you feel she needs to be held by the hand? o.0

    No. You will end up like this :

    just change the word "dance" to "gaming"

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    The possibility of the universe collapsing into a singularity is higher than the birth of a perfect MMORPG.

    Best answer there... Would be kinda lame if you like space and play EVE and your gf/bf is totally into fantasy and you ask her/him to play EVE as well ;)

    Hate to break it to you bubba but MMOs have the largest percentage of women players compared to other genres. Your just as likely to be an MMO player and be dating a he that is a newb.
