57- but in all seriousness, that is a TERRIBLE SUGGESTION! Gamers take their shit seriously, all the equipment and game progress is a large investment both of time and money. I only use a ps3, but even that, plus all the games, and the small tv I bought for my room, probably adds up to about a thousand dollars. And it sounds like OP's boyfriend uses a pc, and a good gaming pc costs waaaay more than a console. It'd be like getting a thousand dollars just..... taken.
#3 WoW is not where it's at, more like USED to be... If you think the Kung fu panda expansion is remotely good, then you must like dumbed down games. Heck even rift is so much better because at least that game has talent trees so you can customize your toon. Also Gw2 is a really good game.
WoW has gone down, compare it to vanilla beta; ever since they fired the original team it has been dumbed down. GW2 is a fun game but I find not much to do after 80, yeah wvw dungeon running and w/e but it's still not exactly the hardest game. I like what guild wars is doing and trying to get away from the set usual schemata of MMOs. If anyone remembers the original MMOs they were much more intense and difficult; and less limiting in their character design, granted the genre wasn't as popular as it is now an I believe that was because it wasn't dumbed down for a general audience.
I'm with Trippy. I don't think the OP is selfish for wanting to see her boyfriend at some point on his days off. He doesn't necessarily have to spend all day every day with her, just show her he cares. That's what a relationship is about. If he would rather spend all his time apart then what's the point in being in a relationship with her?
Alright. Lets boil this down to basics. OP's boyfriend is choosing to interact with a video game on a screen rather than with another human being face to face. He can go back to that video game whenever he wants swing as how it can't run away and will always be there unlike his girlfriend. He needs to stop taking his girlfriend for granted.
OR she can sit next to him, watch him play, or better yet, try to play with him. That's what I do when my boyfriend just plays on his computer. And if I really dont want to, I do my own thing right next to him; isn't being near your significant other enough? I don't know if it's just me, but after two and a half of dating my boyfriend, you run out of things to do with each other. We have fun doing our own thing with each other.
Two and a half years, sorry And to continue, that doesn't mean we don't do anything together, but sometimes it's best to not FORCE him to spend time with you, that will make him resent you. Try to seduce him or convince him, but if he's adamant on playing a marathon, then let him be, and try again later. If not, well he's not really being selfish. A week is not that long honestly. Maybe his game is his stress relief and he's been extremely stressed from work. Anyway, he is bound to get annoyed of losing that he might stop playing for a while.
117- the graphics may be amazing, but there are far too many bugs and the community generally sucks. The developer is no where to be found, and the only word we have about when things are gonna get fixed is the rumors of the "Rapture" expansion which still doesn't even have a release date. The developer claimed that things get better in the sequel, but I just dont see it happening.
I actually got my boyfriend to play GW2 after much force, and he doesn't even want to play with me now because he's further than me :P. It's an absolutely amazing game and it is pretty cheap as well as long as you don't go for the collector's edition. No danger in trying it out, put on your headset to keep out your bf's screams and listen to the beautiful music by Jeremy Soule and prepare to get blown away!
OP, I would so high-five your bf! If i had the time off I would be online too! My pain is that my bf does not play GW 2, while I do. By the way, tell him to add me to his friend list - Marlene Frenique. Lastly, we gamers have been waiting for GW 2 for nearly 3!!! years, so quit your whining about a week....
How about you make yourself an account and play with him?
I feel your pain... mine is the same way.
