carla6991 tells us more.
I actually do play with him and am commissioner of the crew and am a bit of a gamer myself. However, I require a bit more than 2 hours of sleep and don't feel like playing during every bit of spare time I have. We had a talk about it last night though and he agreed to cut down when I'm home from work so we'll see!

The only way to solve this is to get another console, get GTA V, join his crew, and then once you get close enough as a team after multiple rounds of robberies and joyrides, systematically kill everyone off in your crew and blackmail them into leaving. Then, once your boyfriend is reduced to an emotional wreck, send him a message that states: "You should have spent more time with me." Or you can ask him to spend more time with you. That works too.
Soon he'll be having you collect coke for him in-game and betting on him to win races. At least that way he'll be involving you.
Well no, EA would say that there are many completely different sodas, and your choice would completely change what you get, but you end up drinking the same piss-water each time but in 3 different colours no matter what. And then after you paid for your soda, they'd mention that the can opening mechanism came separately in a day one DLC, I mean package, for a few bucks.
EA sucks, it does.. But they also helped Dice with Battlefield. Battlefield is the shit so EA takes a win for that. But their logic behind DLC is pretty damn ridiculous. I remember getting the map Raven Down in the original Gears of War for free. Why couldn't they have kept it like that? 60 bucks a game plus at least another 50 if you want all the DLC included. 90 dollars for a damn video game? What the fuck. No wonder people torrent games for PC. We can't afford them anymore.
I live how everyone hates on EA then goes out and buys their games anyway. Vote with your wallets for once rather than going out buying the game then raging after it sucks. I'm a proud non support of EA or SOE. From what I've seen I haven't missed much and I can buy 4-5 indie titles for the price of one of their "games."
If he can't make time for you, especially when his schedule is full of gaming, dump him. That's not fair to you.
OP, as a gamer's wife I can tell you this will pass as he gets tired of the game. However, he needs to know you can't be ignored every time he gets a new game. Make plans with friends, get too busy to beg for his attention for a while. Don't live on his gaming schedule; don't be available the second he puts the controller down. He may be crew leader, but he can delegate recruiting to other members for a few moments a day to spend with you.
My husband has been playing gta v since it came out. I just leave him to his game since he rarely gets to play them. I would never leave him for something so foolish. If OP's boyfriend does this all the time then I would reconsider. Shit, once he tires of the game I'm going to play it. It looks awesome!
That's a fun game:) but he really should make time for you too, if he chooses a game over you I think you should reconsider the relationship?..
True, it's one thing to really enjoy a game that's great, but once you start ignoring the important people in your life, that's a sign that you should probably start limiting yourself. Then again, I have no room to talk. I used to cancel dates with my ex all the time to play more games.
I believe in the term "if you can't beat em join em" . my boyfriend is a hardcore gamer and sometimes I used to feel neglected when he played his games . until I started playing with him . yes , I play PlayStation with him . and I'm a female . it's fun . however , I dont and won't play all the time ! i don't have time for that !! but GTA V is REALLY fun . the best GTA yet ! this situation can be fixed OP . it's not a big deal . better his hands be on a gaming controller than on another woman .... :|
72 if you're that desperate for attention from your boyfriend I think you need to reconsider your life. try finding your own hobbies or something. if my boyfriend enjoys doing something I leave him be. why? that's his alone time for himself, as we live together. don't get me wrong, sharing hobbies is great, but not as a mode to spend time together. why do girls make such a big deal about playing video games? "YES I'm a girl, YES I play video games"
