DH loves his video games! It doesn’t bother me because I am busy with schoolwork and hobbies, but sometimes I wonder how much video game time is normal. I never was really into them, so I have no real point of reference. How much time does your SO spend playing video games? Do you play too? For bees with kids does your SO still play the games as much? Does your SO play everyday or just weekdays/weekends?

My FI plays a ton…. but he works nights. So on his nights off, I am asleep all night (along with everyone else in the world) so playing video games is a good way to keep him awake. The only time it bothers me is when he chats with his friends while he plays and he can get so excited and wake me up with his noise. But other that that, I don’t mind at all!

@bridetobe75: I am glad I am not the only one who doesn’t mind the games! Sometimes I worry about what will happen when we have kids, but I guess that goes both ways. I will certainly have less time for my hobbies too…

DH plays maybe 2-3 times a YEAR. and only when I’m out of town. I’ve never actually seen him play a video game.

My husband and I are playing games all.
If we’re on the computer and it isn’t work related or necessary jobs, we’re playing video games.

@gingerbreadgirl: I voted for 3+ hours, but it’s not a consistent 3+ hours a day. We will usually game for a few hours on weeknights, then have all day/all night gaming sessions during the weekends. We met playing WoW, so video games are never a point of contention with us.
@Hyperventilate: +1! No wife aggro here 🙂

@gingerbreadgirl: It depends on the day. On his day off, he’ll play anywhere from 0-5 hours or so. I haven’t seen him play a lot on the days he works though. Maybe an hour or two a week. He’s usually too tired. Last night I came home and asked if I could play video games (he was watching TV). He said “sure! can I play with you?” and I said “…I wanted to play by myself…” LOL. talk about stereotypical role reversal.

My FI plays video games spratically, mainly when there is something new he wants to play and realizes he hasn’t finished the last one.
And I can’t hold any grudges, because I play video games too, and like to watch other people play games. It is just like watching TV together for either of us.

once ir twice a year we pull out the old school Nintendo and play. Other than that none. I always asked guys on date 1 if they played video games lol then I would scope out their places for a gaming system. Video games just arent something I am into and don’t want them as a prominent place in our life.

DH no longer really plays them unless a new game just came out. Then he will play for 1-2 hours a day. When we first met he played them for at least 4 hours a day.

When we first started dating, it felt like it was all the damn time. Over the years he’s stopped spending (literally) the entire weekend playing games. He still plays, but now he might go days without playing and even then it’s only for an hour or so which isn’t a problem at all.

Constantly when there’s a new game out, never when there’s not a good one.
Lately he’s been on GTAV. I think the new Call of Duty comes out soon, so there goes my holiday season.
Typically he’ll play after I go to bed, though; I wake up much earlier, so I go to bed much earlier, and he’ll kill the time after I go to sleep playing online with his buddies rather than watching tv.

@riley23: Don’t worry, from what I hear call of duty ghosts isn’t that great (i.e. same ending as modern warefare 2, they got lazy lol).

He plays video games less than once a week. He only does it while he’s hanging out with friends and I’m not around.

When he does play, it’s for maybe 1-2 hours? And he doesn’t play every day. Maybe a couple times a week at most.
