WHY DO MEN RUIN RELATIONSHIPS WITH VIDEO GAMES?


Maybe you are just boring and he needs to get away from your raging, boring vagina.

OR

He has something wrong with him...

I play video games, but that doesn't mean it's all I do. When I was dating my previous GF I still played video games, she didn't care, but thats because I only did it a little bit.

It's all about balance.

Pretty... it's an addiction - I've seen people not only lose relationships, but jobs and fail out of school because of this as well. It's got nothing to do with anyone involved... and it's not gender specific.

This topic still makes me sad. If playing video games makes me a boy, then so be it, I'm a young child who got a sex change. I don't see how playing video games is ANY less mature then going shopping for ZOMG NEW CLOTHEZZZ GOTTA HAVE ITTTTTTT CUZ I GOTTA LOOK LIKE PARIS HILTONNNNNN.

Get over yourselves, seriously. If you don't like video games, then don't date men who play them. If you do, you brought it upon yourself so either accept it or move on with your life.

You beat me to it. Most people in our society think gaming is stupid. Or it's for kids. What exactly makes it so "kiddy"? What makes it stupid? It doesn't "expand your mind"? You people claim this because you're uninterested in the medium, and therefore aren't looking to see anything beyond the surface, which appears to be cars crashing, blowing stuff up, raping hookers, etc. The GTA series tells a LOT about American society. God of War & Dynasty Warriors are bloody well near mythology textbooks. Series like Project Gotham, Madden, and Rock Band allow people to get involved in activities or interests that we might never have been able to do.

As for it ruining relationships, it only ruins the relationship as much as you let it. If you've never even tried out whatever it was that he loved so much, you're guilty of contributing to the relationship's downfall. However, I'm not going to completely absolve him - there's a reason why EverQuest is called "EverCrack." But just lamenting video games based on one type is silly. I'm a hardxcore gamer and I've never seriously played an MMO[RPG] (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game aka EverQuest, City of Heroes, Star Wars: Galaxies, The Sims, etc). What you did right there is the equivalent of somebody listening to a crappy pop song and deciding that ALL music sucks based on that one song.

Ok

So, I play video games. More specifically, RockBand. It's a game we can both play. I try to get her involved with it.

Sometimes she doesn't want to, so I've found her some games that she likes... such as the Sims, etc.

I've been reading these boards for a while and all I see is women complaining about everything their husband/boyfriend does.

STOP COMPLAINING AND DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO FIX IT.

I don't Think Men ruin Reltionships with Video games...
Obviousy someone is a little pissed that someone is spending a little less time on them and to much time playing games..
Obviously you must not be communicating your problems or your not interesting your better half
Just my opinion

The men I know who do play video games claim the games are more interesting / stimulating than their partner.

here is a great Idea if he is playing a game too much, go hang with YOUR friends let him have his alone time and when you come back he wont ignore you, and you will both be happy

Hmmm,.. let's see,.. perhaps it's because they have become boring to the point where a 2D vidio game is the preferred activity to having to converse with them,.. or.. it could be that they complain about everything under the sun,..asking foolish questions like "Why do men ruin relationships with video games?"There could be a hundtred different plausible senerios...really quite hard to poin down,.. the guy might just be a jerk or an A-ho.. like I said hundreds of possibles,. Do they have a pointless section for threads like this here? I thought I saw one..
