I really hate video games. We bought an xbox 360 today and Fiance hasn’t so much as left the couch since we got home. He has been playing that stupid Black Ops game for more than 7 hours!! I can already tell that this is going to make for a very annoying weekend.
Tell me I’m not alone in my hatred of video games…

Annoyed with my XBox Obsessed Fiance
Fiance and I both hate video games–there’s no way I’d be with a video-games obsessed guy, that’s for sure. Soooo unhealthy. Godspeed, haha

I don’t mind them. I actually enjoy plaing wii, wii fit, wii sports, super nintendo with my nephews. Theres a new Kinects(sp?) thing comming out for xbox that looks pretty neat actually. My bf plays games maybe once a month, for a weekend. I don’t mind it, I actually encourage it. Everyone needs some down time every now and then. But if it were an everyday thing, that could get annoying.

I dont mind the games that we can both play like Rock Band, Wii Fit, Super Mario for the wii, etc but the war/shooting games are what I cant stand (I probably should have mentioned that in my OP). I’ve even gone as far as to try to trick myself into thinking its a movie, but it doesn’t work.
The Kinect does look cool. I think we’re buying one of those those this weekend…

@UpstateCait: I just commented in the other post about this. Fiance bought the Black Ops game tonight and he wanted to play it “real” quick to see what it is about then we will start watching the movie…oookkkk…..He said “you aren’t going to bite my head off?” Haha..too tired to fight that battle tonight! Anyway, I really do like video games. We played Gears of War together on a split screen against some of our friends online (I suggest that game for you and Fiance if you do not mind gore…it is so much fun!). But it does get annoying when I come home and nothing is done except the fact he conquered level 4…

My husband likes video games, although doesn’t play them as much as he would if he were still a bachelor. But I look at it as, I spend time on my blog, Weddingbee and doing lots of other things I love, if video games are the worst thing he’s doing to spend his time then I think I’m doing pretty good.
I may not see his point in the shooter games, but he doesn’t see my point in being on Weddingbee or my love of shoes. So we agree to disagree on the purpose, and we compromise on the time we spend on each individual thing. If it starts getting in the way of the relationship, then it’s a concern.

I grew up with “Pong”, so I really don’t understand todays video games. I will play “Jeopardy” once in awhile. My FH bought my step son an xbox 360 and we haven’t seen him since. Thank goodness the FH is as clueless as I am.

I am currently sitting on the couch next to my SO. He has been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops since he got home from work. I think I could be bleeding prefusely from my eye socket right now, and he wouldn’t notice.
He wants me to add that he’s probably “pwning everyone’s husbands right now” (his words, not mine, dear god). This is after I expressed that I had just found a weddingbee thread dedicated to his obsession.
I enjoy video games like Mario and the like, but I will never understand this shooting game nonsense. I have a feeling I will be drifting off to sleep and waking up to the sound of gunshots tomorrow morning.

Actually, my Fiance doesn’t like video games…but I’m obsessed. haha, it’s a rough world for gamers. We lose all track of time while playing, and it’s so hard to stop playing simply because you’re progressing in the story so much! I’m not much into war games, but fantasy games like Fable I’m obessed. There has been many times my Fiance has had to say ” Baby…plans?” haha.
I’m sorry it’s got you so down, cait. Hopefully it’ll lose it’s charm soon. *fingers crossed for you*

Darling Husband is pretty bad, but he’s gotten so much better! Now he plays when he gets home from work (about 1 am) and is usually in bed by 4am. Nothing compared to the hours I used to have to sit and watch him play. lol.

@izziebear: Thats too funny. I just told Fiance that and he was like “Oh hell no!”.
I went to bed last night and he was playing and I woke up this morning and he was playing. It’s going to be a long weekend…

lol you don’t hate the video game… you hate that your Fiance spends so much time playing them! I would say the same for myself with my ex who was totally video game obsessed. It would drive me nuts that he would stay up late playing vs. coming to bed with me. I kind of felt like I was dating a child and it caused a lot of fights.
My Fiance now I think has a great balance with video games. He likes them and we have a wii and ps3, but he’s definitely not obsessed. If he’s busy he can easily go months without playing them. They’re basically just what he does when he has nothing else to do (work, study, hang out with me, or sports to watch). Which isn’t really all that often. Usually like random saturday afternoons if I go shopping or if I’m watching a girly show upstairs 🙂

I got lucky, my hubby doesn’t like video games anymore. We have a Wii and play it sometimes, but it never takes over our weekend or night.

Can I just say what is up with this stupid Black Ops thing? Women are losing their husbands to this game!!! But I am happy my husband isn’t into games like Black Ops that draw you in for DAYS to finish.
hehe. Seriously, no I do not hate video games. I actually like video games. And my husband does as well. We go through phases when we play them together.
When I was a teenager my brother and I were addicted to RPGs (role playing games). Silent Hill anyway? My brother and I beat it in two days. Hahahahaha.

@CorgiTales: You’re right, I dont hate them I just dont like this game (and that he’s been playing for a combined 12 hours). I’m hoping that after the “newness” of this game wears off he’ll go back to the once or twice a week like he normally does. Now, once we get that Glee game he’s going to have to tear me away from the TV!
