I play, but I complain too--I understand why its fun to play I don't understand a man's preference for playing over being with real humans.

I play some video games... I love the Wii and some of the things I can do on there. My computer games are like Risk, Sims, Puzzles and Poker. Women in general are casual game players... men tend to play the games they can play for hours and hours.

I don't like video games because i'm not good at some of them... I get dizzy.... and I don't think it's entertaining to kill things over and over.... and I don't have hours and hours to dedicate to them either. I won't complain that video games are played occationally. One of my coworkers is preparing (by playing games) to join a 72 hour - 300 person lan party.... where no one bathes... or sleeps... for the majority of that. I think that's excessive if you ask me.

Chances are you are playing too many of them if she's complaining.

i'm not very good at them, but I try! I like watching as well, to a point, as in I wouldn't want to every day.

I am only pretty good at the original nintendo, which is why I bought one and a crap load of games! Yay 8 bit! lol

I like to play some video games, but what puts me off is when a guy spends ALL of his avialable time on an X box instead of portioning some of that time doing things with me. If every time I call or turn around, he's at the joypad, it wont make for a lasting relationship. I have no problem with video games. I have my favorites, too.
