The Pornstar And The Gaming Nerd: A Match Made In Heaven?

As much as we often want to give life to our fantasies by rationalizing and entertaining interesting theories, we should probably acknowledge the fact that pornstars and gaming nerds aren't exactly like peanut butter and jelly. Even so, there's nothing wrong with entertaining interesting theories, per se... Just ask Stoya.

Recently interviewed by DasGamer, the 22-year-old adult film star says that a gaming nerd is "her kind of guy," and it's probably because she's a gamer herself. When asked what video games she first played, she cited Heroes of Might and Magic and Civilization, and she even said she thought the latter franchise "went downhill" once Sid Meier jumped ship (sounds like an informed individual, yes?). Stoya doesn't talk about the sexiest video game vixens 'cuz she never played any games with vixens, and in our mind, that only amps up her "nerd" meter. Then they asked her what the industry should do to appeal to more female gamers, and the answer was interesting: basically, if the "chick likes blowing the heads off of invading CGI troops or playing heavy strategy games," then she'll be a gamer. If she's not into that stuff, "no amount of bunnies and hearts is going to change that fact." We always wondered if the ladies would feel insulted by games "designed" for them that are all fluffy and cuddly. It seems to us that Stoya wants to blow sh** up, and no, we're not going to use the word "blow" in any sort of clever play on words. We're just...we're just not.

So anyway, go ahead and check out the full interview at the link above; there are a few more pics of Stoya for added motivation. As for the title, we just have to remain grounded in some sense of reality, or we'll float right off the earth. Sorry.

My wife is an avid gamer, hates' FPS games and I would have to call her a hardcore gamer considering how much time she games each day. Xenosaga was her gateway into gaming, Soul Calibur 3 was the first major addiction, and Burnout Paradise topped everything off.

That said, she collects the premium collectible Barbies. The thing she loved about Soul Calibur 3 (and to an extent Soul Calibur 4) was the character creation. In SC3 the Chronicles of the sword also gave a bit of Soul Calibur story/adventure for her custom characters to run through. The thing is that the create a character mode in both SC3 and SC4 is a fairly robust virtual doll game. You can design your own doll, changing stature and hair/eyes and in SC3 even the make-up. Then you can put together an outfit for your doll. You can even pickup and view your doll from all angles and pose her (or him). Then you have the Chronicles of the sword and suddenly that doll or dolls take life.

To me, hardcore gamer is a label that means someone who spends a large % of their spare time gaming, not someone who plays fps games. Although it's not laden with ponies and hearts, Soul Calibur 3/4 does provide an excellent virtual doll set to play with.
