Girls? Playing VIDEO games? YOU'D BETTER BELIEVE IT.

With the type of breathless astonishment usually reserved for miracles and alien sightings, local news channels across the country decided to report on the Major League Gaming tournaments in Dallas last weekend with the best angle possible: HOLY SHIT DID YOU KNOW THAT GIRLS PLAY VIDEO GAMES NOW?

Kotaku video editor Chris Person has put together a super-cut of the footage. You can watch it in all of its glory above. For the love of the game.

Note that these reports were all filmed in 2013, as opposed to, say, 1996.
