Gamer Other Half

In the News

Does anyone get annoyed with other half constantly playing xbox/ps4 in the evenings? Or do you join in too? I dont mind it but sometimes it would be nice to play some board games etc do something different...

We're both gamers and we love it. I can see how it can annoy you when you don't like it, specially because you may want to do things together. Maybe set up a weekly board game night, or weekly fun night?

LordUnbox the problem is he works shifts. And lately he's just tired and wants to zone out playing games...and I get it. I just carry on with my stuff I need to do. But what does annoy me is when we decide to go out/I make dinner and I'm there waiting for 20-30min because he just started another bloody game !πŸ˜‚ and quite often if he's not playing he's watching stupid videos of others streaming their game... I'm absolutely rubbish at computer games I got no sense of spaceπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ probably I am only good at original Mario and that's itπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

LordUnbox usually it's done for the week. But quite often than not he'll get called in on his day off or asked to stay longer even he was meant to do short day. Last few weeks he worked a lot of hours so he's shattered... also I'm 7 months pregnant so he better enjoy his games while he can πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚...

I love gaming but if there was multiple people in the living room who didn't like gaming I wouldn't force it down their throat, I'd setup somewhere else to play. I don't have one myself but I think many people have bought a Switch so they can play both on the big screen and quickly switch to the portable screen if someone wants to use the main tv.

Lynibis lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I dont mind usually πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚because then I get my sewing done, read my books etc. But sometimes it does grate on me a bitπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚but then again at the moment I find many things irritating such as toothbrush left on the sink, or anything out of place πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My OH & eldest son are big gamers. My youngest son plays too but not as into it as much. I only enjoy playing COD. My eldest son competes in gaming competitions etc alot. I don't mind, I do sometimes have to put my foot down with them about time spent playing, but not often.

My Oh doesn’t but my son drove me crazy shouting at the thing all night when he lived with me. That’s one thing I certainly don’t miss now that he has his own house ( his poor girlfriend has to listen to it now ) 🀣🀣🀣

I always said I wouldn’t get in a relationship with someone who plays video games because I’m not coming second best to a game.... having said that, my other half has a PlayStation we use for watching tv and he didn’t play any games on it for 2 and a half years of our relationship until lockdown started.. he downloaded one game and only played it when I was asleep or on facetime to someone
