Just wondering. I play pretty much every weekend with my friends. 4 or 5 hours on Friday and Saturday nights.
A lot of girls that I've seen got mad at me for playing, and I'm wondering if this is all girls, or just the ones I've dated. Some would try to get me to quit, but usually they found out the hard way that given the choice between the two, the girlfriend goes before the video games.
I feel like judging a guy for playing a lot of video games is like judging a girl for watching too much netflix... not really justified. What do you think? Turn on or Turn off?
- Yes it's a turnoffVote A
- Yes it's a turnoff, but only if he plays too much (define too much below)Vote B
- No, it isn't a turnoff at all.Vote C
- OtherVote D
- I'm a guy/No opinionVote E

I voted B. Too much would be playing more than 2 hours everyday. 2 hours every few days would still be annoying. My guy plays for longer but that's only once or twice a month. He will play for like 4 hours at the most even then. Just think of something a girl said she liked to do for 5. Like that's excessive for anything. Shopping would probably be something that could possibly take that much time. Even if it's just on the weekend. The girl gets annoyed mostly because she thinks it could be spent with her or on something productive. I play with my guy sometimes and that makes it more fun maybe teach her how to play.1

I play video games, but I know my priorities. And I have been single most of my life anyway. If I am in a relationship, I usually reduce my gaming time drastically, to spend time with her.
If somone does not want to date me JUST because I am a gamer, it's her loss not mine. I'd rather not be with someone THAT shallow and judgmental anyway.2
