The world of gaming has become an integral part of modern day culture. Older generations can barely remember a time when a console couldn't be found in nearly every house, and younger generations don't even know a life without them. Ever since Pong became a household name and game in the early 1970s, the video game industry has only become more popular. And so have the profiles of the people who play them.
Gone are the days when gamers were typecast as being boys, kids and nerds. These days, the term gamer includes everyone. Kids are still just as into the industry as they ever were. But now enthusiasts include people of all ages, slackers and professionals, the dropouts and well-educated, and yes, even women.
Whether it's getting involved in an epic saga like World of Warcraft or just casually playing a few heated games of Angry Birds on their phones, women have become the fastest rising demographic in the video gaming industry. This point has brought many issues to the forefront of the industry, such as sexism in gaming and the fact that video games in general are completely male-driven games. But the more women who fess up to their love for gaming, the quicker all that will change. Here are 10 female celebrities who don't have any trouble confessing their addictions to games. Find out who is more serious about it than others.
10 Adrianne Curry
9 Zooey Deschanel
The doe-eyed, sultry-voiced Zooey Deschanel has confessed to a mild case of gaming addiction. It is, however, much like what her critics often say about her: too sweet to be taken seriously. Deschanel claimed that she was completely obsessed with the Nintendo series, The Legend of Zelda. When asked about it during an interview, she simple said, "Obsessively, I play Zelda. I had to, as sort of a show of pure willpower, give away my Super Nintendo machine because I was so obsessed with Zelda."

1 Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn has been hailed many times as the ultimate girl of every geeky guy's dreams. When she first made a splash as co-host on the popular G4 show Attack Of The Show, many were skeptical about Munn's claims of being a fellow geek and gaming lover. But, she quickly won a lot of people over with her love of cartoons, Pabst beer, and tons of talk on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. She has said that her ideal night would include "a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon and playing some 'Guitar Hero' until three in the morning".
