If you have a GameCrush account, Kill yourself.

Exactly one week ago, a new service launched, called GameCrush, where men can pay money to play Xbox Live with an "attractive girl."

Seriously, this is real.

Degenerate agoraphobics Interested, lonely men can sign up to the site and once there, choose from two options:

A) Play a simple Flash game against a "PlayDate", an attractive girl you can chat with via webcam.
OR
B) Join them in multiplayer over Xbox Live

A single game of either will cost you $8.25, with Xbox Live matches running for 10 minutes and Flash games for 6.  GameCrush is restricted to those 18 years old and over, and players can select one of two kinds of matches.

Direct quote from the site:
"We have created two broad categories, "Flirty" and "Dirty" to help the PlayDate define and match her mood of gaming interaction and experience with those of the players. You can choose either option or both depending on how you feel!"
Jesus Christ, ignoring the fact that paying for such a service ascends (or rather, descends) you to the 99th percentile of hopeless human beings- GameCrush reinforces every male and female stereotype.

Think about it.  GameCrush assumes that the bulk of gamers are heterosexual, male nerds who tremble at the sight of a real live woman and who have never developed the social skills to interact with women in person, so they need to purchase time with them in the only social arena they are comfortable.

At the same time, they assume female gamers are so rare that men would be willing to pay for the unique, previously-unknown pleasure of gaming with them.

So, in the GameCrush online community- everyone loses.  And I win.
