Happy Monday Bees!
I know I’m not the only one, so for all my other Bees whose DH/FI/SO loves to play video games… how do you “deal” with it? Do you let him play all the time and do your own thing while he does, do you give him a “time limit,” or do you play right along with him?? This is just for fun, as I’m curious to see how many of our SO’s play and how everyone reacts to it. Sometimes I let him play all day and clean/read/browse the bee or do other random stuff. Sometimes I get annoyed and tell him he needs to be done in an hour or something, and sometimes I just want to ban videogames for ever!
Now I know it’s healthy for us each to have our own hobbies, don’t get me wrong. Some days I just I want to throw that darn PS3 out the window though!! Am I alone?!

I voted that I let him play as much as he wants, but my husband probably doesn’t play as much as yours so that could be the difference. My guy LOVES video games but he really isn’t the play-all-day-for-weeks type. He rarely ever plays for more then 2-3 hours at a time, and doesn’t even play on a weekly basis really. He’ll play on weekends during the day sometimes or occassionally after dinner. But it never affects us at all because it doesn’t interfere with our time together. We kind of default to hanging out with each other and watching tv after dinner/on weekends and then maybe 2 nights/week I’ll have stuff I want to watch that he doesn’t and I’ll go do that and he’ll watch sports or play a game if he wants to. Then on weekends during the day I’m often busy doing something else and he’ll play then sometimes.
I do recall that my ex was a ridiculous gamer. Like would stay up until 6am playing which pissed me off because then he’d be all tired the next day. Never had a real resolution there, we just fought a lot (hence: ex). lol

I am involved with a local sports team and am at the gym 3-4 nights a week. Therefore, if he wants to play games, he can, since I am probably not home. On the weekends, he limits it so we can spend time together. We are pretty independent people and are happiest when we are in the same room doing our own thing, so it is not uncommon for me to be working on a craft and he is playing a game. That’s just how we are!

@LoveMySailor1018: my Fiance plays games for a couple of hours each day. I don’t mind. It’s part of who he is, and sometimes we play video games together! I played monkey island yesterday lol. He tries getting me involved by getting me loads of games too. Last one he got me was Zumba on the wii. fun. 🙂
I really don’t mind him spending so much time playing video games, because we both like having some quiet time, specially after work. so that means I get to do my own thing while he’s playing games. Sometimes I just watch him play Pheonix Wright while i’m on the sofa before I take a nap. It’s become part of our life!
Besides, him being a gamer means i never run out of gift ideas! 😀

My Fiance plays WOW (World of Warcraft) some times, as well as XBox games, it comes and goes. I voted to let him play as much as he wants and mind your own hobbies if you have one. I think it’s a good thing because it relaxes him. I have my own hobbies (Yes, I play other video games aswell besides painting, knitting, various other things) and he has not once complained or had a remark about that and works wonderfully for us.
