  • Your call. I'm not entirely safe telling you to do otherwise without knowing more.
  • Reason with him, but try as much as you can not to tick him off, though it might be inevitable. Get him to pause it and/or stand between him and the tv/computer, and have the talk. Many will say to dump him, but give him a chance, and you might try playing the game with him, but if nothing works, end it.
  • Lets see, how can I put this...... YES!!!! If all he wants out of life is a high score you don't want him.
  • Answer: play video games with him - then everyone's happy! Seriously, though, you should have a talk with him about it. Tell him it's bothering you that he seems more interested in the games sometimes than you. That it is SERIOUSLY bothering you. People, guys especially, are not mind readers. You shouldn't break up with him because he plays video games all the time. You should consider it if you were to tell him how you feel and it still seems like video games mean more to him than you do. But when you do tell him, tell him as if he doesn't have a clue this was bothering you in the first place. Don't be hostile and don't be overly critical, just tell him like it is. If you come across calm and let him know the gravity of the situation, you put the ball in his court, and what he does with it, that is what you should base your decision on.
  • There is only so much you can take! I would talk to him, like turn off his game and get in his face. Video game addiction is for real a problem.
  • You should like cut off the cords haha. That or give him something to do or plan sumthing that will get him away from his addiction area. :) mainly talk to him.
  • I remember when the Halo craze came out loooong time ago on xbox.. a lot of people i knew of dumped their boyfriends over it.. the guys didn't really seem to care until after it got old and they got bored. i'm not talking about just playing everyday for two hours.. i'm talking about them playing the WHOLE day.. and didn't even bother calling their girlfriends.. and when they did.. they weren't paying attention because they were busy playing games. i'd talk to him about it. games aren't worth a person's heart
  • Have you talked to him? I'm sure you can make a compromise. My fiance & I had the same problem but I spoke to him about it & now he mainly plays while I'm asleep :)
  • '
  • Spank him
  • No, you can change him definitely.
  • why? how many hours a day does he play? does he call out from work just to game? does he not do things that need to be done or do you just want his attention away from games? how are games any different than books or TV? well besides the fact that they challenge the mind and increase hand eye coordination. unless he is sacrificing responsibilities, join him.
  • I have the same problem... but my bf does work and has excellent communication skills outside of the gaming life. But it irritates me when he plays and ignores me when I am physically ard him, and when we talk on the phone and he is playing, only answering me in uhhs and hmms, with long pauses in between. I tried toking to him and he doesnt think he is playing too much. He is also bad tempered and when I voice out 'games discussion' to solve this, he gets irritated too. HELP!!! He is is a good man and I like him, but how can I make him understand this effect on me?
  • try cosplay, dress up like a video game vixen
  • dump him man, let him play his halo 3 by himself
  • if you screw him he'll put down the controller...and his pants
  • just let him play his game and you go do something that you like to do! the more you keep yourself busy then you'll forget he even exists. or you can learn how to play. playing halo, i love the game but i have to admit you have to put ur foot down about time in ur relationship. you need balance. if you have friends go out with them and have fun with out him. you'll be happier.
  • If you are not getting anything out of the relationship, dump him. If you ARE getting some benefits, make a list of the good things and bad things and see which is longer. Then you'll know what to do.
  • Well you could but maybe first you should talk to him about it. Ask him to play his games when your not there or play with him. I do think you should talk first. GOOD LUCK +6
  • You could try playing with him...? i'd like that, that would pretty swell if i had a gf that would game with me every once in awhile :)
  • NO,what you should do is play video games with him reverse psychology
  • Yes. Dump.
  • Put a virus on his computer first, then watch it crash.
  • I wish I could find a boyfriend (hate that term) to play WoW with me. Might piss off my gaming partner if I did haha So, he plays too much? How much is too much? Have you ever made an effort to appreciate and participate in his hobbies and interests? Do you have any hobbies of your own? (After all you should be able to amuse yourself right?)Are you a shrew? (Does he have a reason to be relieved when you do leave?) Lots of unanswered questions here...but it's my bet if he is completely absorbed in games and doesn't care that it makes you mad there might be more to this than just him liking to play.
  • Yeah maybe. +5
  • Try playing with him every now and then, you might be able to get him to do what you want if you join him for awhile. +5
  • Dump his ass like last week's moldy breakfast. I mean, what is a boyfriend for? . Romance. Sex. Company. Fun. Cuddles. A good ear. Help around the house. Security. Stuff like this... . At this moment you have a game bot. So, unless you're a PC yourself, get a real man, one that pays (or acts it really well) attention to your needs as a girlfriend. . My two cents: DUMP !!!! . Look at it this way, maybe he'll learn something from it. But do not get back if you do. He'll get the message that he's forgiven and it's ok and he'll get back on the games. Pain makes many wise men. And women. . Oh, he might keep in shape and be an absolute beast in bed. Then you might want to think about it. As long as he plays, he doesn't "play" around. Otherwise... be pro-choice. (yes, I'm a bloody bastard)
  • no. it's just a normal phase he is going through that will probably last for about.......forever.
  • Dump him. I always tell my boyfriends before we date that I don't put up with that crap. Sure it's fine if it's every once in a while, but if they want to do it all the time, obviously they don't need me.
  • Yes. It sounds like he just needs a live-in maid.
  • Become less available for him when he wants to do something.
  • yes, if you do not like a gamer don't date a gamer
  • Go ahead. He will barely notice.
