So, with the new(ish) forum layout comes a new start and no posts; this one's from the old forums which I started, and it seemed to be a success. So...
In your relationship, where do video games stand?
Does your S.O. play along with you and enjoy the co-op sector in a game? Or are you both more competitive and like to play against each other?
Or do they rather enjoy watching you play, if they don't play video games themselves?
OR have you had any bad luck with your S.O. and gaming? Considering many couples do seem to have that problem, which is unfortunate IMO.
You get the idea.
Myself; I very much enjoy playing the co-op side of video games with my boyfriend; when he stays over, we always order a takeaway, put out feet up and usually play some form of video game together, which, at the moment is Portal 2. I also actually enjoy watching him play, and even sometimes I give him hints on games I've finished. However, on the flipside, we can also be rather competitive when we are pitted against each other and play split-screen against each other.
I do think that, in a way, playing games together has brought me and my boyfriend together; through communication with each other on co-op, and through the banter we share when we are playing against each other. In short, gaming in my relationship is a big yes.
Feel free to post your little stories on gaming and your partners, too. :-)
