Back when Vangie and I started dating, the thought that she might get into gaming was a pipe dream. At best, I thought she’d maybe play some party games on the Wii, or some puzzle games on the DS. When she started getting into the more hardcore stuff, I was ecstatic. “Finally,” I thought, “someone I can play games AND make out with! Jackpot!”
But here’s a warning to all you chaps out there looking for a girl to play games with: there’s a price. As I sit typing this Vangie is playing Dark Cloud 2 on the PS3. I want to play Wolfenstein…on the PS3. And it’s not like I can go play a Wii game, as we only have the one TV. Dark Cloud 2 is easily a 60-70 hour game, so for the foreseeable I will have to do that most loathsome of things…share.
So watch out for those gamer girlfriends, guys. Every silver lining has its cloud…
(And Vangie, if you’re reading this I love you and think you are the greatest thing ever, even if I have to share the TV with you :D)
