I am beyond frustrated because he's been addicted to this game ever since Christmas. He plays every single day after work and then all weekend. Whenever I was at his house he played and didn't pay attention to me. I thought this time apart would make him miss me and want to see me but apparently not. I don't know what to do.
Wouldn't you want to see/spend time with your girlfriend who you haven't seen in 2 weeks rather than play a video game you play every single day?

Hey. Guys like video games doesn't mean he loves u any less. These things are very addictive. I was before. I quit when I was 22 and I'm 5 years sober now. It's very hard. It's a condition. He won't give u up for his games. But if u tell him to give it up for u then u will end up losing him. That's an unfortunate truth. So learn to live with it. And slowly change him and get him out of it. If he gets wise enough he will come out of it on his own. I would also like to tell you that I empathize with you and blame him for neglecting you but I know both sides. U will have to work out a solution. I don't know what kind of a person he is but if u go to his house convince him to talk to you and if u can get him to pause a game while play ur making headway. Like that work through it slowly and get him on ur side.

Guys are so annoying when it comes to games. My boyfriend is like that too, I have to do THE most to get his attention.
But honestly, he's just making excuses that your hometown is boring. The whole point of coming to your side is to see you and chill at your house or whatever. You should try to compromise with him or if you go around his area, go out to eat/movies etc
