GameCrush: Pay to Play With Girls.

The article http://www.examiner.com/...">http://www.examiner.com/x-13320-Online-Games-Examiner~y2010m3d22-GameCru... ([color=red]WARNING: Contains some video game related graphics[/color]) says:

Quote:... GameCrush is a service starting on March 23, 2010 which will, quite simply, allow male gamers to pay to play with "Flirty" and "Dirty" gamer girls.

...

GameCrush allows for guys ("Players") to play their favorite games on Xbox Live or PC with the service's girls ("PlayDates") of their choice for the low low price of approximately 8 dollars for 10-6 minutes of girl time depending on the system/game. (For instance, you get live video chat if you're playing Flash games like Battleship.)

For those male gaming addicts who have problems with sex addiction as well, this can make it that much harder to break away. Although I hope that this new service fails, I doubt it. This may be the start of a trend leading to other similar services, as well as other means of using base human attributes to make video games more appealing and addictive.

I am sad that more people

I am sad that more people will be brainwashed in this way. Paying "a girl" eight dollars over the internet to play you at Battleship for an hour? First they biologically depress us, then they give us Ritalin, then they use our depression to make money? GRRRRR

My true thoughts though is that I've been there, I probably would pay to do this at least once if I could. It'd be nice if there were real friends to have fun with so I don't have to, but alass there's not yet. I wonder how to respond to people once they start coming here saying they want free from doing this type of thing.

Actually, Skopos, it is

Actually, Skopos, it is about 8 dollars for about 6 to 10 minutes, not an hour, with this working out to about 48 to 60 dollars for each hour of play! Nonetheless, I agree with your sentiment that it is taking advantage of male gamers, especially if the girl gamers were going to be playing anyway.

Wow that's crazy I went to

Wow that's crazy I went to the website you can choose flirty, dirty, both or any...it's like a porn site for gamers, most of the female pics are half naked, they even have the time that a particular girl will be on. Most males that are younger can't afford that kind of money so it will turn into old perverts playing games with young girls...it's rather shamefull what people will do for money. I lived in different Asian countries for years and they laugh at us (westerners in general and United States to be specific) because we are so materialistic and believe that things bring us happiness...Most people I knew over there were kind, respectful, polite and happy. Here in the US people are rude, self-centered, out for themselves, on any kind of medicine, and generally unhappy...

This reminds me of an article I read over the weekend about virtual goods. I can't vouch for the content. Maybe someone here can review it for the group. It may have been posted already but here: http://www.newsweek.com/id/235170 Virtual goods doubled growth in ONE YEAR(2009) to $1 billion. This is real money being paid.

A few months back, one of

A few months back, one of the major gold selling sites announced they would be putting in-game 'Escorts' online for World of Warcraft. The 'Escort' would help with quests, run dungeons etc.

"escorts" in WoW doesn't

"escorts" in WoW doesn't surprise me. I've never been one who believed that all female characters are girls, in fact I knew a lot of guys who played girl charaters. I asked a few of them and most said they would rather look at a female toon than a guy toon...to each there own but it's still a bit creepy. Most of the real life females I knew played girl toon, but they were mainly trolls, tauren, undead...not the "pretty" blood elfs, sorry only played horde side in WoW.

The addict in my past, paid

The addict in my past, paid for the account of the woman he was 'playing' with, when she claimed she could not afford it.

It is very sad and desperate behaviour.

And now these companies are seeking to capitalise on such sadness and desperation? Where do we draw the line in acceptable profit making.

This may sound like an

This may sound like an extremely naive question, but i'll ask incredulously anyway, "Whatever happened to the FCC?!"

Oh, and regarding "peaceful places and cultures", please reconsider, study history and down and dirty traditions and cultural practices. Each one has its dark side. None are exempt. For instance, consider all the temple prostitutes in eastern lands. Tragically consider that most of them are young children; girls. Or in many other eastern and far eastern countries, little boys of grade school age are used and abused as prostitutes especially by men who travel there just for that reason. Or how in some foreign cultures they favor self flagellation, mutilation, or suicide as honorable as part of their "peaceful" religions. And what about the countless torturous practices that many have and continue to indulge in? These are just a few examples; the list could go on and on. The "appearance" of politeness and good manners is just that, an outward cultural show. (I'm not speaking of individuals who are genuinely polite.) Look at the histories of these countries from an objective source. Our history in this country is quickly becoming more and more shameful and perverse, with services like these described above.

I feel sick when i hear of more horror like this, but why should I be surprised? Things are getting darker and darker in the world. But as things get darker, The Light will only get brighter.

Man, my husband was gaming

Man, my husband was gaming with a girl for thousands of hours - me! - and he didn't need to pay a dollar. Well, I guess the marriage license and wedding did cost a few bucks ;)

In WoW, my main was a male toon - an ugly little gnome warlock - and I definitely noticed that I got different (sometimes negative) attention when I played my female alts. I didn't put a lot of thought into having a male toon, but after a while I appreciated the anonymity it provided.

So yeah, in case my post didn't make it clear, this is disturbing in many new ways.

Yeah it must be popular, I

Yeah it must be popular, I was at my brother's house yesterday and we both like watching all the crazy stuff on youtube and that GameCrush was one of the videos that was most popular that day...Just like almost anything the computer/internet does a lot of good and helps in many ways...but like most of us know it can also be a bad thing, I think it's sad that I am an adult with no kids and I have to have a special program installed to filter out all the filth that's on the internet because I have nieces and nephews that come over...even simple innocent words can be preverted into something disgusting on a google search.

You are right IHS.. about

You are right IHS.. about alot of the aspects, and different cultural practices that those foreign countrys do,and i agree alot on what you have bought up about the nasty dark things that they do, and have done,but for me in the post i wrote, i just would like to visit some of those places and see some of the good qualitys that some of those samuri and monks had with loyalty,honor, reverance,devotion,things that i like, and can put into practice ,also for the scenery and views.Just like i would love to visit Jerusalem,Bethlehem,Nazareth, even though those places where the lord lived, and taught had there fair share of torture,darkness, and mayhem in there past and still do in the present.
