Very true. In the heyday of WOW, people were hooking up on it. These days League of Legends is where it's at if you want to meet hot nerdy girls, which all you single peoples should IMO as they're usually into really crazy stuff. A vast knowledge of internet humor, video/PC games, anime, and being tech savvy have gotten me more dates than anything else, honestly.
Hell, just last night a very cute girl was kindly helping me multitask while guiding me through a Pokemon battle on her Nintendo 3DS in my car up until a hilariously awkward encounter with SFPD(lol ask me at NJC). Just depends on the kind of girls your looking for I guess, but know that socially adapted nerds often do very well for themselves dating wise.
