    My girlfriend and I work together and live together. We wake up together, take our showers, have breakfast, and go to work. I am not physically near her constantly at work but we encounter each other throughout the day. We then drive home and have dinner together. I involve her in all of my social activities, including dinner with family, dinners with friends, church activities, fraternity activities (I'm president of my fraternity's local alumni association and adviser to the chapter at the local university.) We really don't need video games to bring us closer together.

      I'd say this is a generational thing and maybe not sure how much you know about the development of games in recent years. Some of them can really bring you closer because they are decision based games. It's certainly something to talk about. Why did you choose to help this person and not that one? Why did you join this faction and destroy that one? Why did you choose to help using this method instead of that method. Personally I think it's a cool conversation to be had during playing. I still want all the other things too but sometimes going out isn't really on the agenda.

    • I see young people eating bat amounts of time on gaming.

    I haven't been into gaming that much since 2015. When i am, Im only into racing video games (n4s, forza, mariokart), Sims, and was into GTA back then. I’m willing to play games with the guy a few months a year but i wouldn't want to date another person who games daily/weekly

      What about Skyrim or Fallout 4?

    • DizzyDesii

      @t-8900 i know them by name but know nothing about them. Judging by the looks no. Only what i mentioned above and like Sly 3 from when i was younger

    • t-8900

      damn those are my favorite games too XD
      they have some themes you'd appreciate too I think.
      Something about open world games, making your own character from scratch too.
      Skyrim came first of the two. You live your own life but you can focus on any type of combat you like. Bow and arrow, stealthfully sneak up with daggers and slit throats, giant warhammers and axes, sword and shield, light or heavy armor, or magic! Build your own home, get married and have a family, fight zombies, dragons, giants, be apart of a civil war and choose sides, etc.

      With Fallout its the post apocalypse. Guns, Swords, Lasers, bombs (literally nukes lmao). You can be a raider, a faction leader, and you can make and customize settlements. You can romance in it too and you even have some awesome companions with unique dialogue.

      BOTH: Change as time goes on, the world evolves based on your own personal choices. Its hella fun.

    It's great for those not having a lot of money a lot of my childhood memories were me or dad playing games alone but together giving each other tips and just having a chimwag. Even during uni it was clash of clans we used to have hour long phone calls while talking about it and playing it so I can definitely see this happening
  • Seangreen
    I stopped playing video games after high school and then somehow few years later during the time I stop playing ethernet cords were able to now be plugged into councils and it put a whole new dimension on everything next thing I know I'm hooked on video games and it ruined a couple relationships I think and now that I don't play anymore and there's no fucking way in hell I'm going to start again to play with somebody I'm in a relationship when I'm damn near 40 years old

    There are hundreds of useful things couples can do to bring them closer together, to get them off their asses doing something that might use some energy and help keep them healthy.

    Would only work if they share a common taste, it's like movies if two people has way to different preferences they won't work as bounding time.
  • AdithyaR
    Very nicely put.
    I play a game called Destiny 2 and my clan has a few couples, including a married couple with kids. It's really sweet seeing them have fun together while gaming.
    • yucychan

      My guy is crazy about Destiny 2. Can understand why though. It's an impressive game.

    • AdithyaR

      Definitely, it's amazing. And I'm a sucker for good story based games and it has one of the best lore I've ever heard

  • CurlyGirl42
    If one can find games both like, then sure why not. But it is true for lots of other types of activities besides video gaming, and I do think this posts glorifies it a bit xD.. like meeting new people every day? That is not true for most video game players :D
    Personally I never played video games with someone I dated. They were not really into such and we had other things we liked to do together.. oh except Pokemon Go with this one man :D.
    But actually it brought me and my brother closer as kids.. a lot of games/toys we would fight about, but we found many video games we enjoyed together. One player games like Super Mario/Crash Banicoot/GTA where we took turns, or Capture the flag game modes playing as a team.

    I've never been a big gamer, but some guys are more into games than into me. I'm sure they could okay if proper balance is found.

    I've often felt like I wasn't being active enough playing games, when I did try some... online games with a boyfriend or friends or whatever, I ended up just socializing the whole time, forget killing stuff, just be friendly with everyone.

    Although right now, this guy wants me to get something called a Oculus 2 says that way we can play games and I can stay active, have to see what that actually is.

    I prefer analog games to video games. But I agree. Playing games with people deepens the relationship.

    Sure, it's a perfect take for the audience expected on this website. Ideally people become closer when they experience something together. I prefer that experience to be real.

    This is definitely something I have noticed too. I had a girlfriend once and on our first couple months, we played minecraft together (we were both rising college sophomores at the time). Part of it is because we lived in different states but another is we get to see how we think when given situations that require problem solving (even if there is no real threat to not solving it) and how willing we are to work together. There were definitely times where we have laughed our asses off at some times when the game glitched or there was some funny misinterpretation.

    I understand that video games aren't required to make a relationship work but I think they can definitely help depending on the game you choose to play co-op.
