Three Years and Counting

Three Years and Counting

Today marks the third anniversary of the formation of Real Women of Gaming!

Real Women of Gaming started in 2013 as a group of women who were tired of being called “Fake Gamer Girls.” We pulled together in an attempt to fight the “Fake Gamer Girl” stereotype by telling the world that we’re real gaming women.

Our First Profile Picture

At first, we started out by forming a Facebook page and posting funny memes on it. From there, we decided we wanted to blog about our experiences, and thus this website was born. After that, we ventured into Tumblr and Twitter, eventually landing ourselves on Instagram, Twitch and, finally, YouTube.

Today, Real Women of Gaming is made up of women and men who have helped to foster the amazing community we have today. Our content writers, content creators, mods, admins and friends come from all walks of life, helping us to create something so much bigger than ourselves as individuals.

This sense of community led us to creating our anti-bullying campaign, You’re Not Alone, two years ago, in an effort to raise awareness for bullied children. Just yesterday, July 9th, we held our second annual You’re Not Alone Anti-bullying Fundraiser at Uncanny! Comics in the King of Prussia Mall. We raised our goal of $500, which will be sent, in full, to STOMP Out Bullying. We couldn’t have done that without you.

Our First Customized Facebook Banner

As someone who’s been in it since the beginning, let me just say… what a ride this has been so far. From writing my first blog post to casting my first live stream on Twitch to uploading my first YouTube Let’s Play, I have been in awe of the amount of camaraderie and love that is provided within this community.

And not just from the staff! Though, yes, Crymson Pleasure and ColdShoulderAvenue are two of my best friends in this world, the amount of love we have received from you guys, our internet friends, is astonishing.

Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Thank you.

We love you.

Hanging out with Robert Siegfried

First, I want to thank you for taking the time to share your opinions with us. We are 10421103_637886579677933_4005365856798853865_nexcited to hear from you!

Thanks, I love doing interviews. Glad you wanted me to come on.

So, what was your first experience with gaming?

My first experience with games was around 1999, I was at a friend’s house, they had an NES set up in the living room and we played Super Mario Bros. It was really fun and the next day me and my mom went to a used games store and got an NES. The first games I got were Super Mario Bros (all three), The Legend of Zelda, and Star Force.

Do you currently game?

Not very often hahaha, too busy. I always make sure to get a new Zelda game when it comes out, but aside from 3ds stuff I don’t play games very often. Fire Emblem Awakening, Bravely Default, and Super Smash Bros. 4 are what I’m playing right now.

If so, what system(s) do you prefer?

My favorite current system is definitely the 3ds. I travel quite a bit so being able to play on the go is really nice. My favorite system of all time though is definitely the Nintendo 64, so many good games.
