  • Damn straight I would. I would drown him in kissies and hug him. Might do other things but that's a secret. :P Since I also know the pain of somethings taking FOREVER to beat at times. Then the frustration of it all. The happiness of beating something that was really annoying and tricky is extremely satisfying. ^^

  • I would possibly congratulate or praise a boyfriend if he set out to do something and achieved something from it, regardless of what it is. Whether it would be loosing weight, gaining muscle at the gym, achieving something for work or finishing a level in a game (in this instance).

  • Um... no. It wouldn't be genuine. I don't play video games so I couldn't appreciate his accomplishment. He has his bromance friend for that.

    • Don't you think it's still nice to say something. I mean, that's why we like you, because you care

    • Show All
    • Well yeah, but luckily I'm not dating you

    • Lucky indeed. Sounds like we'd be both miserable. You for not getting congratulated on video games and me for dating someone so easily offended. @Kidlnk4 :p

  • Yes. I understand the pain and frustration of reaching a level you just can't beat and how much time, patience, strategy and skill it takes to get to the end. I would throw a damn party and cheer him on! I would even write a status on Facebook in his honour.

  • Yeah :) I know how hard certain games can be, and how it's a real accomplishment to beat them. So, of course I'm congratulating my partner for his win.

  • Hah, of course. If you're dating someone who's into video games then its a given that they're probably proud of, and tried hard to beat said video game. You should always congratulate your partner on doing something they're proud of. Its kind of a no brainer. :)

  • Anytime someone focusses on something, sees it through and excels, they should be congratulated, if it was at all difficult for them.

  • Yes! Because I do things that people would consider lame and a waste of time. Like enter the needlework competition at the local state fair. When I have won, my partner has always been proud and supportive. An accomplishment is an achievement, and should be congratulated.

  • It depends if i was watching it happen or not, like if i'd been sitting there watching then yes i would be excited and congratulate them. If i'd just walked in or got a random call saying OMG i beat the game etc, i'd still be happy and congratulate them (cause if they're excited and happy, and i care about them why would i put it down or be a buzz kill?) but it wouldn't be as hyper as if i was there and invested.

  • In my opinion, I would not. Cause to a lot of girls, like myself, constantly hear about guys beating video games, so it's nothing really exciting to us.

    • Oh trust me, when it's something you've been working on forever, it's a huge accomplishment

  • Yup I sure would lol! I definitely know the struggle because there's one game that I have had since I was like 9 or 10 (the legend of zelda: majora's mask) and I'm not using any walkthroughs to do it but even to this day I still can't beat it. I'm at the canyon temple now lol. When I beat this without any walkthroughs, I'm gonna have to put that accomplishment on my calendar. Might be another 10 years from now though... lmao!!!

  • Yeah. Have you ever played Battletoads, the very first Castlevania game on the NES or the very first Ninja Gaiden game on the NES? All of these games are still hard as shit to be and right now, I'm still stuck on the middle of the campaign of Ninja Gaiden on my Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.

    • But I won't throw ballons and a party about it. Regardless of how difficult a lot of games can be, they're still games. lol

      However, I would buy some beer, liquor or some sort of food, drinks or beverages to congratulate my partner with somewhere nice, peaceful and quiet with fresh air.

    • I beat the first castlevania! and the third one which was pretty hard too!

  • Of course. We would chest-to-breast bump no doubt!!

  • If the child was 7 I would say good job but unlikely. Like a kid saying he went to the toilet without help, good job. A grown man playing a game, if he did not have 7 figures in the bank, he is just waisting life.

    If the guy had only 1000 days of life left and he spent 3584 days playing a game, his grave marker would be presneted with his name on it that says, "here lies a fool".
