* Button's Mom from ''WebAnimation/ButtonsAdventures'' was apparently this in her youth, , since she has an old gaming machine with a game that resembles ''VideoGame/Pong'' and can understand the ConLang that Button speaks. She's evidently where Button gets his love of video games from.

* Saiko Yonebayashi from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]''. She spends the first 10 chapters of the series hiding up in her room, playing video games and avoiding work. After she's forced to start participating, she still rambles about video games on a regular basis and utterly demolishes her coworkers when they all play together during the Christmas party.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Asuka really likes video games. [[AfterTheEnd In spite of living in a devastated world]], Shinji made a special effort to find rare, new video games for [[BrokenBird Asuka]] because he loved seeing her to smile for a change.
-->Her face would sometimes relax, when they sparred in the dojo, or when they were playing one of Asuka’s favorite diversions, video games. She always seemed pleasantly surprised when Shinji would appear with more of the ridiculously rare functioning games for her systems. She always asked him why he spent so much on her toys. He never managed to say to her face that it was all worth it to see that wisp of a smile and hear her calling him ‘baka’ again in that softer voice.

* There is some TruthInTelevision in how a great many female gamer do end up very frustrated with not being taken seriously by men.
** Some of the more skilled female gamer use this to their advantage. One ''ElectronicGamingMonthly'' (EGM) article interviewed a teen girl who was a hardcore ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' player and she mentions how the guys at a tourney would always assume she wasn't good just because she was a girl and some would even go a little easy on them, thinking they would still win, only to go home with their tails between their legs when she kicked their ass hard in the game.
** It got really bad at the late 1990s when female gamers began "invading" the hardcore gaming scene, particularly the ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' online multiplayer community. Reactions from detractor male gamers ranged from shrugging it off, to making accusations of them being {{GIRL}}s, to outright harassment. A notorious example of a victim of the latter was [[http://www.salon.com/1998/06/08/feature_310/ Hellkitten]], who also happened to be a model in real life. Once she made her presence known by posting her own pictures on her website, attacks came in, ranging from defacing her website, spam mails, and being sent scare pictures, such as those of her face spliced to nude females, but the worst was a picture of a mutilated dog (which absolutely frightened her because she was an [[FriendToAllLivingThings animal lover]]).
** The controversy has spilled out into accusations of sexism in the nerd culture in general (i.e. fake nerd girls and fake nerd "girls"). On one side, there's people who genuinely don't like girls in their games (or guys, though that's less often). On another side, there's people who look down on the former and don't care about stuff like gender etc (which is the vast majority). On the third side, there's {{GIRL}}s and actual girls who state/pretend to be girls with the sole intention of getting free stuff. Lastly there are those who capitalise on all of the others by pretending to be victims, going so far as to fake hate against them, to gain sympathy. Woe for those in the fourth group who are found out, the results won't be pretty.
