It also seems like every woman I talk to who has a SO with a gaming "habit" they view it as being "childish" and "distractive."
I admit, it's all too easy to tune out and play for hours and I'm actually thinking of putting the XBOX up because I'm not being a good role model for Joey, who DOES play for hours on my laptop and barely looks up. He's smart enough to know the lay of the land.
Still, I'm getting the feeling that there is this stigma about people who invest significant amounts of time into gaming - and I'm not talking Candy Crush here. That seems to get a pass.
What do you guys think?
My wife gets my gaming, she's pretty cool with it although I don't get as much time as I'd like, no time anymore. On the weekends once chores and errands are done she doesn't have a problem at all with it.
