A lot of my friends are gamers too, and yeah, it's always the same old song and dance. I always tell them that they come on WAY too strong when they finally get the nerve to talk to a woman, or they'll do the opposite and turn themselves into doormats. There's no balance.
That, and I always point out how gamer girls never seem to have the same problem, so don't go around blaming some sort of perceived prejudice against gamers (in fact, it's quite en vogue in many social circles nowadays).
I only say these things because I used to see it in myself, and have learned to change it. I'm not trying to put others down, just speaking from experience.
