Here in my house I got a small statuate of Jesus and few days ago I found a small piece of paper with a wish writed, that´s say LORD, no GRAW plz. Man I couldn´t stop laugh. You guys from UBI and Dev team don´t have any idea how bad wishes she wants to you. God bless all you guys. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Well... I did use to play normally, I guess. About 4 hours per day in the middle of the week and 6 to 8 hours on the weekends. I can count with one hand the times I did play 12 hours with 2 pit stops of 30 min to eat something and goto pee. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

Well, there is no way you can get her to play with you?

I mean, my wife isn't a 'Frag Doll', but we DO enjoy doing things together. We play games with other couples that we know, and in games with Co-op, we always play through the game together. This has existed through MULTIPLE consoles/PCs, and if she EVER expresses and interest in a certain game -- it is hers.

I guess my question is -- did she know you liked gaming before you guys got hitched? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I mean, I don't love TLC, While you were out, or interior decorating; but I do my half ;D

I expect that my wife and I will be playing Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter together for fun, and I expect we can be competitive with good team tatics. HOPEULLY, this game will have a good 'Southpaw setup' so she isnt hosed b/c of controls. We will see http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Its cool that your wife enjoys playing games with you,my wife says she doesnt have the patience or the hand eye coordination to play...plus she gets sick to her stomache looking at the computer screen to long.

You keep playing GR that much and you'll be doing more than just "counting" on one hand. The other side of that is you never have to cuddle with your hand and you can just go to sleep after sex.

Well I solved my problem and even got a computer upgrade by introducing her to the "Electronic Billing" world... In my case we both bring money to the table but she does the billing.. (so she has the pants) she was biatching all the time she was doing bills while I was sitting on my butt playing and enjoying free time.

She was computer shy so she pretty much didn't understand how I could be on the screen for hours. Finally I found the excuse to have her do the electronic bills so she can have spare time. At the same time I had the excuse to put together a PC for the billing so I bought new parts and got me a new PC LOL..! Now she sits next to me surfing the WEB ... Oh did I mention I also introduced her to Internet shopping? LOL now she spends hours looking for clothing and stuff toys for the kids and I even go to bed before she is done... hey maybe she is also dating some cyber dude.. who cares.. I just want to play lol.. J/K

Sounds familiar, now just get her "hooked" on online bingo. It's really not that much $. The misses here can spend up to 6-8 hours playing with her new friends. To bad I didn't like that many games that came out this past year.

Geez, get help man. It's just a game, don't let it ruin your life. Besides, we don't need to hear about your personal problems.

I am being compassionate. After the GR2 fiasco we need as few higher powers as possible interfering with the GR3 release! In other words, I'm just trying to encourage SG_Devil (not sure the name helps) over here to get his act together because we certainly can't afford any divine interferance! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

i used to play from like 2-8pm every day and almost all day on the weekends way back in the day. now i only spend like 25% of my free time on the computer.

unless you have a good hand cut back on the gaming or you might regret it when your to old and your hips become mroe important than some breif pleasure. THAT is the time to start hard core gaming again.

My wife has her hobbies...
I have my hobbies..
My kid has his hobbies...
We respect eachother always and dont judge or get jealous of those hobbies. Balance is the key.
