3 reasons your better half should be happy you play games


 We all love our games, but there are times when our girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband just doesn't understand our completely justifiable need to play games until the early hours of the morning, regardless of being a week night or the fact that we need to get up early for work. Here are 3 reasons why they should just accept it for what it is, and even be proud of it.

1.) The Break-in or midnight theft scenario

All of us have heard stories of break-in's in the  middle of the night, while the innocent couple is lying in bed sleeping, peacefully unaware of an intruder who breaks in through a window to steal your valued possessions and ready to tie you up just in case you wake up. The very last thing the intruder would expect is a completely lucid gamer, already filled with adrenaline from playing Call of Duty, and wielding a very dangerous Playstation or Xbox controller aimed at their face.

It's already a weapon anyway, and we know how to use it. And what the hell......you're just one more frag.

2.)Keeping the couch warm for you in the morning

Ladies, picture this.....It's Friday, and after work you've popped past the shops and purchased the latest season of Greys anatomy or the DVD of Eat, Pray, Love only to realize that you're just too tired after a hard week at work to do anything but sleep when you got home. You decide to watch it on Saturday morning.

What a great feeling to wake up and see that your thoughtful boyfriend stayed up all night just to keep the couch warm for you for when you decide to watch it. He even made sure the TV was on so when you woke up, it was ready for you. He's so sweet, isn't he.

3.) Cleaning out the fridge

Imagine waking up to find that all the food in the fridge that had already passed it's expiration date was conveniently gone. All because the wait in-between matches or a sudden raid instance or dungeon popped up unexpectedly, interrupting the need to eat decent well-prepared food. There just wasn't time to check and whatever was easily consumed took precedence over preparation and foresight.    

And so you see that gamers are actually true romantics at heart, and we do it all out of love. The more we game, the more we show we care.

  2. When I had a drink problem that almost cost me my girlfriend , it was gaming that helped me quit the drink, smoking once and for all. I just threw myself into gaming while I recovered from withdrawal . It kept my mind distracted enough until I felt better.

  3. Good for you, man!!!!

    It's always good to hear positive stories related to gaming.

    Despite what many may think, the distraction that games provide us can help us aleviate many stresses in our lives. (like it has for you)

    In fact....I'm busy with an article about that exact topic.
