SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Playing video games online is now a much sexier experience for geeky gamers.

Socially inept video game nerds can now hit on other gamers using GameCrush, an interactive service that allows players to meet and play against “PlayDates” and even get paid for mingling.

The guys or girls who sign up to be “PlayDates” can earn up to $30 an hour for zoning out on games like Halo 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Meanwhile, those who sign up to play with those “dates” can choose to keep things “flirty” or “dirty” depending on what they’re into.

The flirty version allows for innocent chatting and the opportunity to meet someone new, and with the dirty version, anything goes.

Supposedly, the increased sexual tension helps make the experience all the more fun.

GameCrush highlights the fact that there’s a huge female gaming community and breaks the stereotype that gamers are always overweight, unkempt nerds.
