A dating article which singles out men with an unhealthy (i.e. any) interest in gaming as being amongst the least appealing sort of partner to the fairer sex has lately been making waves online, with the article even going to rank the pastime alongside such scurrilous pursuits as “visiting brothels,” “being interested in idols,” and, of course, “maintaining a figure collection.”
The list in question – “The guy who does this by himself is absolutely no good!”:
He stays home alone and plays games
Most women do not seem to think much of men who play games all the time.

He makes or buys dolls with emphasised boobage, etc, then lines his room with – there’s no way you can be anything but creeped out by this. You really can’t help but label him a pervert.
He’s a solitary claimer [complainer]
He’s the kind of guy who spends his time filling comment forms and forum threads with insults about some product or maker he doesn’t like, and even phones the company and files complaints with them. Even if he tries to keep it secret, he’ll soon find himself with no friends left.
