Pamela Horton: "I Got Treated Like Crap Playing FPSs Online"

Playboy's Miss October, Pamela Horton, says her two favorite games of all time are Chrono Trigger and Earthbound.

...that got your attention, didn't it, hardcore gamers?

But in our chat with the avid gamer and handicraft-maker, we learned that although she loves playing MMOs like League of Legends and World of Warcraft online with friends, she can't play the shooters online, anymore. And why? For the very same reason other female gamers have cited, which unsurprisingly - and sadly - focuses on the rampant immaturity found playing FPSs like Call of Duty online. As Pamela said, she just got sick of "being treated like crap."

"There are of course a lot of stigmas in the gaming community against women who play shooters online. I really lost interest and appreciation [for the genre] because I was treated like crap. I don't play FPSs online now because of that."

That got us talking on the general subject of online behavior and I asked her if she thought the situation might get better. But Pamela doesn't expect the immaturity and abuse to stop any time soon, and she blames it on the anonymous nature of the Internet, and the fact that there are virtually no consequences. You'll likely be inclined to agree.

"There's anonymity behind a gamertag; nobody knows who you are or what your situation is, so you can just say what you want and there are no repercussions. There really aren't any police officers online so you can get away with anything; you can hide behind that anonymity. People are going to use that to just troll or get a rise out of someone. There's a certain arrogance with people playing online FPSs and I want to avoid the whole thing. It can be very stressful."

Pamela is also a fan of campaigns and can't understand why people buy a game only for the multiplayer. She mentioned the fact that almost all the available downloadable content and pre-order bonuses for games these days are multiplayer-oriented and she wonders why...and you just gotta love her for saying that.

Stay tuned for the full interview coming later this week. And yes, she did answer a couple reader questions. :)

Ah so I was right she does like a little JRPG action. As far as the online FPS thing goes, welcome to the club Pam. Even those of us who aren't among the verbally abused can't stand it either, though she might find that if she switches to Playstation things aren't as nasty.

Call of Duty does not represent the typical FPS multiplayer experience. I mean come on, the franchise is known for having an immature online environment so I'm not sure what she was expecting when she decided to play it.

Go play Tribes, TF2, CSS, and BF3 if you want a great online experience.

I can understand, but really, people should be stronger within themselves in not letting people, especially random strangers, change who you are or what you like to do. Perhaps, she never really got into fps anyway, cause I know for sure, if someone talks crap to me in GT5 online, I aint gonna quit playing it.

Yeah... I would not play CoD at all if I wasn't playing with friends. And I never do play on my own, either. I can mute a-holes no problem because I still have someone to talk to. But if you can't talk to ANYONE because of the abuse... I'd lose interest too.

Also, it's not about "taking it" or "having a backbone". It's about straight up enjoyment. And if she gets far more satisfaction from playing other games and MMO's than from playing CoD while taking abuse... it's sort of a no-brainer. Not a "backbone" issue.

Seriously, Ben and Daus?
It's impossible for me not to become bothered by jerks (does that make me more female, Ben? :D) and I really can't see how you guys are able to just ignore it.

For me it completely ruins the joy of a game if a jerk or three are sitting there behaving like shit. It spoils the game for me, I always log off and find another session.

Interesting note... last night on CoD, some kids (could tell by voice) were trying to make fun of us because of our clan title. (It said Vote Obama with a Canadian flag in the background. We thought it was hilarious since we're Canadians. We regularly get southern state folk really mad we wouldn't vote Romney... Apparently the Canadian flag part is lost on people. We can't vote either way! lol)

Anyways, back to my point... we just chuckled and told them they weren't old enough to vote anyways so don't worry about it. Their "insult" was to say, "You guys are just 45 year old losers playing a video game. Grow up."

You and I, of course, know the ignorance in that comment, but we just laughed about it. Dunno why I told that lame story... just cause you mentioned you guys were in your 40's, I guess. lol

Nothing personal, but with that clan-tag, I'm sure glad as hell that your clan can't vote here.

That f*cking tyrannical self-agenda Poser-In Chief douchenozzle has to go.

And if the majority of our congress & liberal judges weren't the sorry-assed f*cking wimps that they've proven to be with Obummer, they should've already charged that scumbag with crimes of treason against America & our Constitution.

I want to see his lying, spending $3 million to hide all traces of his past, non-transparent, a$$ sent to Guantanamo Bay Prison for life, where all his other caught terrorist lovers are at, and with no pardon ever doled out for him.

And hopefully all this will come true after January 20th once we've kicked out this America-hating squatter in the White House.

Lol and we always get the rise we're looking for. I did watch the first debate though. Both guys seemed like poor choices to me. Lol. Lose-lose. Obama was super passive, and Romney just made shit up. Like, he didn't even know the real facts. And i do remember him thinking the average middle class income was around 200k. You guys sound like you're in a real pickle. That's how it looks to an outsider like me who really is neutral.

Canada's no better off though. The only guy who would have been worth voting for, IMO, died of cancer last year.

As an outsider, I have absolutely no idea in the world what Obama has done well or poorly. Or at least very little. (I don't know if the US' version of health care is any good or not, now, but with our country having gone through similar arguments in the 70's, I can say now that it was a necessary step for us here in Canada now that we have the benefit of hindsight. I asked my dad about it, who's a doctor, and he said you can't really compare because Obamacare is nothing like our system here or England. Ours is similar to England's, fyi to my English brethren!)

But yeah, no idea how well or bad Obama did, except that he kicked Osama's a$$, which I guess is a good thing. But one thing the world outside the US has noticed... Romney makes sh!t up, and he clearly believes in part truths making up the whole of truth that he wants to believe. If Obama was as bad as you say, (and I'm not saying he wasn't cause I -GENUINELY- have no idea) then you guys are totally screwed either way... no offense meant at all, btw. Just an observation. I hadn't heard that part World brought up, but if it's true, it just further confirms what I thought of Romney over the past bit.

Sounds like you guys are caught between a rock and a hard place... and I genuinely feel badly that you guys have to choose between 2 extremes with no third party to even everyone out a little. (You guys could really use another political party...)

We have our issues too, though. The Bloc Quebecois, for example, really screw up our electorial processes effectively wasting dozens of seats that could be used by whoever is in power or by opposition. Plus they're butthurt over French not being the language of choice in North America and want to separate Quebec from the rest of the country... *le sigh*


@Tes
That was more or less my impression, although not quite that extreme. lol. Investing in home-grown products will save you faster than big business outsourcing overseas will, though.... And here in Canada, we know the US has been giving bonuses for bringing manufacturing back to the US... because what used to be made in Canada for the US has been moving back there... and losing jobs for us and creating them there. lol... jerks! (lol jk jk)

Just look up Caterpillar moving from London, Ontario to the US... there will be lots of articles on the internet. Pretty shotty business though... the Canadians were paid $33/hr plus, but when they moved to US, they moved to a high unemployment area and only pay $14-$15 to Americans for the same work... So lets not pretend the big businesses will actually do the "right" big brother thing.

Ford moved a major plant in St. Thomas, Ontario to the US as well. Those two plants alone lost 10's of thousands of jobs here and created them there, but they pay you guys half as much... good for unemployment rates... but still not all that ethical...




Sorry for the long post.... lol... it was short, but constant edits grew it up...

Woh, seriously? Or is the branding thing a joke? And do you have to actually pay for it then? Or do you mean "pay" as in via taxes? I don't know anything about it. All I know, as my dad mentioned, was that it's nothing like what we have here and can't be compared really. We aren't branded. We just have a provincial health card. Some provinces have really pretty ones too. lol It's basically the same idea as a driver's license. Actually, it's exactly the same. And it counts as "government issued ID", like a Driver's License, too.

But we don't have to pay for it... that's not what I'd call "public health care"... and yes. that does sound like a joke. We have to pay extra and privately for coverage for drug plans, dental, vision, eventual home care, etc. etc. etc... For us, "public health care" means any Canadian citizen could have a heart attack, get rushed to hospital, get their life saved, and only have to pay a $45 bill later for the ambulance ride.

But we still need private plans. I get mine through work as an added benefit, and it includes all my "dependents". What's free are immuniazations (booster, typhoid, Hep B, mumps, flu shots, etc.) except for anything you would only need when going abroad, emergency health care is free, having a family doctor is free, etc. You can pay more for premium services... for example, we could have paid $400 a night after our baby was born to have a private room. For free we had a 2 bed room with another mother across the way. If I injure my knee in a sport, the scan is free... if I get a concussion, same deal. I get a brain tumor? Surgery is free.

The downside is that the costs are managed via wait times. (6 month wait for a colonoscopy, for example.) Drugs are only partially covered. If absolutely necessary, the gov. helps a lot, but not nearly all of it. For unnecessary stuff, they don't help. For example, when I was a teen, I had wicked bad acne. Not necessary to get rid of it, but my parents extended health care they paid for privately covered the cost of my accutane. And if the wait times are too long for our rich people, they just front the money themselves and go to the states to get it done. LOL

It's great because no one has to go without life saving surgery, have a stroke, get deathly ill, and then worry about whether or not they can even pay to save their own life. And it's equal for everyone. Emergency centers can help you NOW and worry about paperwork afterwards. I think our quality of health care is great because of it.

But the way you describe it...

That totally sounds like a joke.

There are debunkers and people claiming it's a hoax. But I read the bill over a year ago. In straightforward language it talked about an implantable chip for access to a medical database that stores patient information.

The law that was passed is approx. 30 pages shorter, but a provision is still in it to allow for such devices, just worded a little more discreetly.

The people claiming it's a hoax showed up right before they started airing commercials in America trying to convince you to chip your grandpa because he has alzheimer's disease. Funny thing, I don't see any debunkers coming on tv telling me that I didn't actually see what I just saw.

They plan to penalize you on your taxes for non compliance with the law if you refuse to buy the health plan they provide. Nobody in the government is required to have this, in fact they have the best healthcare money can buy.

I don't know enough about Romney to say I like him or not. But I do know enough about Obama to say he should not be our president. His pipe dream of "hope" and "change" we're a load of crap. Now we can only HOPE to CHANGE who runs our country.

Romney was right about Obamacare. It was forced through congress by Obama and Pelosi before anybody really even knew what it was. Then they even had to change it and write in loopholes so the liberal Chief Justice who already wanted it implemented could say it was legal. The public had no choice in the matter.

OK, This will be long-winded because I have many replies to multiple posters, also there many be some typo too, but I'm now too tired to go back & proof-read this post.
So my apologies in advance.

World,
Basically that is wrong & twisted out of context . For example, Romney's secretly taped video came to light only weeks ago about a small private fundraiser in where he "basically" said that 47% of Americans demanded entitlements, and that no matter what he was going to do to try & fix this entitlement mess, he'd never wind up getting their vote.
You know what? Although I don't know if that's the true percentage or not, I 100% agree with his assessment,

For example, now thanks to groups like occupy Wall St. that's supported by obama, we've got millions & millions more free-loader wanna-be's who've been demanding unlimited welfare, unlimited food stamps, unlimited unemployment checks, just to name a few. Oh, also free obama phones(250 free monthly minutes & free texting), now being used to give out in order to sway even more entitlement voters to obama.

There's even 2 videos out now showing some of those entitlement bunch, one showing a proud-to- be-sucking-off the-system woman saying I'm voting for obama cause he gave me a phone, and then she goes on to state all of the additional government-dole agency ways to get a phone.
And in the other, a woman shows off over 6 different obama phones in her handbag, and then proudly says that she's got even more obama phones at home, totaling 30 phones so far. And she also stated that she get's a new, different model phone every single day since she's learned about the program, and that she'll have another brand new phone tomorrow too.

All these government programs were originally created to help the truly needy get back up on their feet &, not for those who just wan to welch off the system.
But obama's now using it to fulfill his own hidden agenda to get everyone dependent on the government dole so he can be the puppeteer that controls all of America.

Now with that said, at 59 years old, and at one time even having 4 jobs at one time, I never felt the need or nor did I ever want any free handouts....from anybody!
But I'm sorry to say that since that I've been out of work for 16 months now(and my 1st time EVER being laid off), I am collecting unemployment(yes, but that I paid for and rightly earned) & things have gotten so bad that as much as I hated doing it, I even had to apply for food-stamps.

So right now I'm only receiving an insanely paltry sum of $16 a month in food-stamps, while others are hell-bent on unfairly milking the system end over end for hundreds of dollars worth of monthly food-stamps.
But I'm not complaining about my measly $16 amount cause at least I can still get a few packs of Ramen Noodles, some marked-down lunchmeat-ends, with some marked down 1 to 2 day-old bread to hold me over from month to month.


To those who want to know more about obamacare.....

Starting this January whether we want it or not, we are ordered by the obomanation tyrant to either get it or be heavily penalized on our taxes. Yet, he's handed out waivers to his so called health plan to all his cronies & political donors. Even the all-Christian company's are now mandated to add contraception & abortions into their plan even though they're opposed to it on religious & moral grounds. if not, then they're now risking his wrath of using agency in the Federal government to come down hard on them(which is now happening in R/L). So for obummer, it's either go with his political & religious agenda, or give up your hard-earned company.

As for myself, here I've out of work for over 16 months now with now money, but if I don't sign up to get the obomination governmental healthcare vouch(that doesn't even help come close to the real prices of his fake plan), then even though I'm out of work with no life-savings left & only pennies to my name any more, I will still be biatch-slapped with tax-penalty of $971 every year.
OH BTW, the obamination has also set up a death squad into the workings of his obamacare, where a 12 person panel will decide & vote on whether you're too too sick that it will cost his plan too much to keep treating you or not, or if they think you are old to keep caring & paying for. That's not what real healthcare is about.
So what that boils down to is that if they vote that's it's too much money to spent treating you, you f*cking die.

Plus, obamination & polosi were able to bum-rush his 2,600 page, 3-phone book thick sized document through congress at the very last second knowing that Congress were itching to get to their homes after a long session & wouldn't have to time to fully read it.
Obamacare is nothing more a fraud to make his campaign-donation insurance buddy's even richer.


To those that say the candidates are all the same....
I fully agree, but remember this 1 thing....

No matter what, you still have to go with the lessor of the 2 evils and then deal with getting that one to change for the good of America, or you need to start working once again on getting his sorry a$$ out of office too.

What the lametream sheep can't comprehend is that "All" of our presidential candidates anymore are nothing more than merely pawns & puppets, with their real strings being pulled by the TRUE powers wanting to control the world by pushing us into the New World Order.

Just to name a few of these secretive society's are, The Rockerfellers, The Bildenberg Group, The Illuminari's,the FreeMasons, The Skull & Bones Society, The Trilateral Commission, and a group of the worlds top 12 bankers who are pushing for The New World Order so that they cam make one monetary system for the whole world, & thereby controlling the world money. And controlling that money will lead to unimaginable power.
And don't forget The Federal Reserve that's been going on a binge printing more useless money after money that's aiming America towards default & bankruptcy.
The Federal Reserve IS NOT any American FEDERAL agency, it's a private banking organization that's sole purpose it to keep printing money to make it's own group rich & nobody else.
How??? America running out of cash? Then hey, no problem, we'll make more.

So the Fed Reserve prints up let's say $20 billion's worth, & then they make it as a loan(using whatever their % rate is on it), and only then do they dole it out to the Government & banks that are requesting it.
So no matter what, the Fed Reserve's money-making scheme is fool-proof

Anyway back to the candidates.....If I had to choose, I wouldn't vote for either of them.
But to vote for a third candidate in this election, is to actually take the votes away from your better choice in that regular 2 man voting process, therefore insuring that the person you hate the most is actually a guaranteed lock on staying in that same exact office you wanted him purged from in the very first place.

So Romney get's my nod, only in order to kick obomination's sorry a$$ to the curb

Yeah. A lot of the commonwealth countries that can be considered "first world" borrow immensely from each other in regards to health care. Since both Australia, Canada, and GB are all commonwealth countries, it's no surprise we're all so similar to one another.

Not to be too political here..but Mitt Romney tells too many half-truths and then shot down his own plan on national tv..I'm not a 100% believer in either Romney or Obama..At least Obama is trying to do something for the middle-class or provides a plan. Where as Romney hasn't said anything meaningful. I'd rather believe in change and somebody who tells me their plan then somebody who basically wants to go back to the old principles that has our nation in this screwed up situation we're in now.

slugga_status,

<<<<At least Obama is trying to do something for the middle-class or provides a plan.>>>>

Nothing against you, but that's pure 100% unadulterated BS.

A plan? What plan?

Please don't drink the obamo Kool-Aid, it's far worse than what Jim Jones was handing out.

That obomanation has had 4 years already to get his sh!t together, & yet he's still got no plan, other than trying to re-elected once again so he can continue to live the squatter's life in the White House for 4 more years.

And,.... in his 4 years there so far, he's done nothing to help America, unless of course you mean giving government jobs to his cronies, handouts to the entitlement crowds(and he's only doing that to get government control over America in the future, if those lamestream sheep & lemmings re-elect him),

Or maybe you liked his plan of claiming he killed bin ladin when what he actually did was to wimp-out by stopping Seal Team 6's raids on 3 prior times against ladin.
Or is it his treasonous ways, of leaking highly, classified secrets of both America & Israel to the media, the world, & to our enemies.

Or could it be his plan of every word out of his pie-hole has been a lie & that he's conditioned himself to actually believe the lies that keep on coming from the 2-faced, forked tongue snake that he is?????
He's lied so much that the top brass should pin a BSA battle ribbon on every one of his shirts.
(BTW, BSA=Bull Sh!tter of America)

Or maybe you mean how he's been setting up his own civilian army, filled with the New Black Panther Party along with his good buddies at the terrorist-associated Muslim Brotherhood, while instituting his plan of using his civilian army to go against any of his naysayers, and getting the Department of Homeland security to order 4 million hollow-nosed bullets, & sniper ammo to be doled out to the Social Security administration, the EPA, & FEMA, all while trying to disguise that buy as just for target practice training. Well guess what, I've taken LEO weapons training courses & you DO NOT use hollow-point bullets or sniper rifles for regular target practice, you use the least lethal wadcutter bullets for that.
Hollow-points are meant to kill & only kill, where the lead tip opens up to expands inside you so your brain or chest cavity is turned into jello. And then our liar-in-chief just had the DHS order another round of bullets, this time it was a only a mere paltry sum of 240,000(sarcasm) rounds, again for the Social Security Administration. And how about his plan that's turned FEMA properties & our old abandoned military bases into upcoming intern camps complete with high fences with razor wire facing inward instead of outward, just so folks can't get out. Or how he's ordered hundreds of thousands of portable jail cells that can be erected & stacked in only minutes for those military & FEMA camps. Or the hundreds of thousands of coffins & body bags being warehoused in in long lines of coupled train cars (just like Hitler used during Nazi Germany).
Or how about all the hundreds of drones he's ordered so far, & ordered them to be used "INSIDE" America.

Or his plan to start a highly-disguised situation here in the US, just so he can declare Martial Law so he can suspend our American rights, our Constitution, and our freedom, meaning those internment camps.

Or of his plan to have his birth certificate, his SS card & his Military selective service draft card forged, all while spending $3 million to erase his history, his school records & his college records.

Or is that none of us really know what country he was actually born or whether his real father was who he said it was, or if it's really the extreme marxist named Frank Marshal Davis, to whom he actually shows a incredible resemblance to.

So, is all that what you'd call a plan & helping the middle class???

Sorry, Romney may have not given us any his plan's details yet, but at least I'd rather have a candidate who's honestly hasn't given out his plan details yet, than be constantly lied to every time the obamanation of mass destruction's jaws move.

Call of Duty, and FPS games in general, tend to have a large number of ignorant gamers. Gun fanatics tend to be some crazy people.

I'm playing Gran Turismo 5 online now and I am shocked by how much better their community and gamers are. It's such a radical difference.

Jeez, what did these monsters say to her? There can be alot of sleaze when you go online, but I generally don't encounter too much crap spewed at girl gamers. If anything, there are more of weirdos that try to be the "Knight in Shining Armor" and protect anyone that sounds like a female than dirtbags that insult the women.

If the hate is not spoken over the mic, it is otherwise messaged in their inbox. Usually asking for more than the recipient is comfortable with. Some are very silly such as alluding them to stay in the kitchen, subtle flirting, or otherwise assuming they're overweight, ugly and need to fix themselves. I have a few girls on my friends list who explain this. Basically they're either treated like a Queen or made to feel uncomfortable at some point in the game.

Oh, and it's not that difficult with some practice to sound like a lady (without the use of a voice changer). Heck, it was common for some male singers pre 1970's and 60's to have one sing the higher notes. :P

I do the same thing World, because in rpg style games, I'm always a magic user, which is nicer to be protected anyways! I only use a male character when I want to be a melee style... some games actually give magic boosts to females and strength boosts to males. If I'm a male, the character's name is Kraaft. If female, my character's name is Fetch. lol Stupid names, and I don't know why I ever picked them, but I've used each for ever and a day. Can't go back now!

Another single player campaign lover!! Oh, how I wish there were more gamers like these!

I too am sick of all DLC being multiplayer focused and the majority of it being map packs or costume skins. The only people I've seen get it right this gen is Rockstar with GTA IV having 2 DLC episodes, with each episode having about 15 - 30 hours of extra gameplay.

And I would love to see a PSN 2D sequel to Earthbound. Haven't finished it yet, but am playing it on my PC right now (Thank goodness for emulators!)

Earthbound is a Nintendo property that they can't even be bothered with caring about, never gonna happen, Earthbound did have a sequel on the GBA (Mother 3) but it never made it over here.

I'm at the point though where I wish Square gave more of a crap about their SNES era RPGs and would give some a HD upgrade (still hoping for Secret of Mana HD with stuff that had to be cut restored) while at the same time finally releasing some that never made it over here outside of emulation and fan translations. Then again, with how little faith I have in SE it'd probably take them years to produce and end with them screwing it up somehow.

Welcome to the world of 12 year olds who don't know when to shut up and people who still act like they're 12 year olds who also don't know when to shut up. I'm pretty sure it's a scientific fact that your balls increase dramatically in size when you think you're safe from any kind of reprisal.

Then there's the internet "white knights" (who tend to turn into creepers/stalkers) which are on a different end of the sad/pathetic spectrum....


Oh and yes, the focus more on the online multi-player aspect of games is getting more and more annoying each passing year. But that's business for ya.
