About

Girls Don’t Game is the creation of Monique. After quitting World of Warcraft, she found herself with spare gaming time and wanted to write about games. Simply put, she wanted a blog. Enlisting her close friend Leslie to team up with her as a co-author, she created GDG in September 2007.

In general, this website is like a giant op-ed page in a gaming magazine. It’s informal and it’s messy at times, but that’s fine.

Disclaimer

The opinions and viewpoints in a post contains solely the viewpoints of the person who posted it. Many times, in fact, the authors disagree with each other; we all come from different gaming backgrounds and styles. Still, we believe in letting anyone speak their mind, so we won’t censor people, least of all our own authors.

The Forums

Recently the girls of GDG have brought to life GDG Forums which is an online community to discuss video games and anything else. It’s currently small and close, but feel free to drop in and introduce yourselves for the time being.

Copyright

All written content is copyright their respective writer(s), 2007 and beyond. All logos and the domain itself were imagined by Monique. All graphic design was done in Adobe Photoshop CS3 by Monique. Artwork used came from the Sons of the Storm who are the official artists of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. Both the piece for the index and archives were done by the artist Raneman.

As for why Blood Elves were chosen, Monique felt the blue motif of Chun-li was too dull and confining after five months of blogging. Her friend Scott suggested the Blood Elf hunter artwork as a possible backdrop and thus version 2 of GDG was born. Enjoy!
