A List of The Hottest Girl Gamers

Zooey-Deschanel-9

Some people believe it’s a myth, but those people are wrong. There are indeed hot girl gamers to be found everywhere. These are ladies who just happen to be beautiful while kicking your butt at Call of Duty, Tekken x Street Fighter, or World of Warcraft.

We’ve all seen pictures of gorgeous women posing seductively with games and controllers, but sexy pictorials do not hot girl gamer make. It begs the question for some of whether or not there really are hot girl gamers out there.

Don’t worry, there are.

Beautiful Women Who Love Video Games

You might be surprised at some of the beautiful, world-famous women in Hollywood who are unabashed gamers. These four ladies would definitely make any top ten list of the hottest girl gamers in the world:

  • Felicia Day: The star of the massively popular series The Guild, which has more gaming culture references than you can shake a Wii remote at, has built at least part of her considerable following on the simple fact that she’s a hardcore video game nerd, who just happens to be considered one of the most beautiful actresses working today. She also blogs frequently on numerous aspects of video game culture, and what it’s like to be a female player in a male-dominated world.
  • Olivia Munn: The former Attack of The Show host makes no secret of her love for games like Guitar Hero. She’s an enthusiastic player, and that’s led many a male player to wonder if maybe, just maybe one of the screen names on Xbox Live is the only and only Olivia Munn.
  • Zooey Deschanel: Zooey Deschanel isn’t just the star of Fox’s hit sitcom The New Girl. The film actress and recording artist is also a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda, admitting in an interview that she played it constantly on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
  • Mila Kunis: One of the most popular, desired actresses on the planet doesn’t just play video games for geek culture street cred. The star of Black Swan, Friends with Benefit, and Ted admitted that she played a lot of World of Warcraft. So much, in fact, that she had to give up playing the massively popular game because it had begun to seriously interfere with her life.

Gamer Girls Are Everywhere

Never assume that beautiful women can’t love video games just as much as you do. Cameron Diaz is a self-professed fan of World of Warcraft. Megan Fox has been known to blow them away at Halo on Xbox Live. The list goes on, and the hot gaming girls are everywhere. Just don’t be upset, if they happen to leave you in the dust with their abilities.

And don’t forget to be respectful. Just because there’s a beautiful woman playing against you in Soul Calibur V or Battlefield 4 doesn’t mean she deserves any less respect than you would give to one of the guys. Hot girl gamers can be as talented as they are lovely.

2. Sufjan Stevens Songs for Christmas

In 2006 he decided to compile the various Christmas music EPs he had created over the years for friends and family and release them as a box set called Songs for Christmas. His take on Christmas songs vacillates between joyful and understated while always maintaining Stevens’ unique sound. This set is essential for any Christmas-inclined indie music lover. 

3. Bright EyesA Christmas Album 

Connor Oberst’s project Bright Eyes has dominated the indie scene for nearly 15 years. Bright Eyes released A Christmas Album in 2002, the proceeds of which going to the Nebraska AIDS Project. While his somewhat bleak take on Christmas tunes might not leave you in the cheeriest of spirits, any Bright Eyes fan will undoubtedly appreciate Oberst’s take on the classics.

Polyphonic Spree has captured countless indie hearts since 2000 with their lush, symphonic, psychedelic sound and dazzling performances (there are more than 20 members in the band!). Their take on holiday music toes the line between staying true to the classics and maintaining the band’s own unique sound, the result of which is a fun and lighthearted yet meaningful set of Christmas tunes. 

5. My Morning Jacket Does Xmas Fiasco Style 

The psychadelic Southern rock sounds of My Morning Jacket have propelled them to widespread success in recent years. Back when they were just starting out in 2000, they released their own take on Christmas tunes with Does Xmas Fiasco Style (as in “My Morning Jacket Does Xmas Fiasco Style”). Fans of the band will love the album, but these Christmas songs aren’t the most traditional-sounding, so it might be best to reserve this music for a party where Grandma and Grandpa won’t be in attendance. 

6. WeezerChristmas with Weezer 

Weezer’s pop rock/punk stylings have captured the hearts of fans for more than 20 years now. Their Christmas album features straightforward holiday favorites with a rock and roll spin. While Weezer stays true to their sound on this album, they really didn’t tinker with the classics too much, which makes it a suitable Christmas album for any setting. 

Why not stock up on all these albums for your holiday party this year? Make sure you give them a listen before hitting the “buy” button on the e-commerce platform just to be on the safe side.

Movie Review: Our Idiot Brother


Not funny or worth seeing at all. The casting sucked, the plot sucked, I didn’t laugh once, though I may have smiled a teeny bit. I couldn’t wait for it to be over. The only mildly likable thing about this film is a dog named Willie Nelson that connects with a dog named Dolly Parton. Spare yourself the agony of this one. Avoid it!
