Sorry to say this but most of the time the guys have to learn it themselves - It's not really nothing you can "show" him.
I have never really been the gaming type but I have had my share of friends that are glued to there tv playing that game.
You can wait it out and hopefully he will grow out of this, or you can put your foot down and give him a choice either you or the games.
Tell him that he doesn't have to quit the game totally but you would at least like him to make time for you.
If he can't do that and at least show you the attention and respect that you deserve then maybe you need to find someone else that can show you that .

If he is playing video games as much as he is, then it is unlikely that he is going to stop any time soon. You can tell him what you've just told us. If he refuses to listen or refuses to do anything about it, then it's time for you to find a new boyfriend, because this one isn't going anywhere.
You can tell him that he should stop, but you can't make him.
If he chooses video games over you, it doesn't say anything about you and if you are good enough or not. It says a lot about him and where his priorities lie. There is nothing wrong with you.
He'll probably have to come to the realization himself that he is currently going nowhere in life while playing video games constantly. I play in my spare time, but I know that there are other things that come first. I think you should lay it out to him that he is failing college, has no job, is on the verge of losing you, and any other thing you can think of because he is lazy and playing games all the time.
You should bring this to him and he'll have to mull it over for a while before he realizes that you're right. If not, he's going to waste away on his parents' coach.
