    Soon RDR2 will be out which is of course a huge release and someone mentioned fighting over the game console for playing RDR2. It struck me that I know a couple who has the same situation and suddenly I got interested in knowing how many of Gurus partners actually play games themselves.

    In order not to leave anybody out I've added a third option for you single guys/gals out there :)

    I think portal 2 would be more fun to play with a partner (and it's easier on nerves). No idea if console peasants can play Portal 2 though :D

    Yep my wife's a gamer as much as me, some games we overlap and both like, things like Red Dead Redemption, Far Cry, Fallout, Skyrim, etc. some games she prefers like strategy games and some games I prefer, like Fifa :)

    We met when we both worked for a game developer so the chances of her being a gamer were pretty high ;) We've been together 14 years (from 5 days after we met), and married now for 12 years :)

    My missus plays some games like God of War or Tomb Raider, but only every now and then.

    She watched me play Dark Souls a few times and asked if I thought she would like it.

    I said nah, it's too expensive for you. I can't afford to replace controllers and possibly other peripherals every day.

    After which I don't remember much... got a bump on the head the next morning though :p

    Nope. She's totally ham-fisted, can't even play with her phone.

    I voted no. But she does play something here and there. She (for whatever reason) really enjoys Simpson's Road Rage on PS2. And the nes/snes mini's that came out, she played also (Donkey Kong Country). She looks at the stuff I play and says, "I wouldn't know where to start or what to do...there's so much happening". And I agree to a point. Games on modern consoles are so complicated and convoluted, 27 buttons plus triggers, hidden areas, confusing maps/graphics. Not very welcoming for a casual gamer.

    So she plays old school stuff sparingly. Not enough to make me vote, yes.

    Well after almost one week of voting it seems like Guru3D wives/husbands do play video games to some extent.

    Yes, we both play RDR2 and Fortnite.

    She is not into other games like me though, but still cannot complain.

    My ol' lady can't play any video games, she instantly becomes sea-sick from the motions. She does however do work on a PC, but anything with 3d gaming, whether PC or console, and it's barf-bag city. I totally cannot comprehend it, but oh well she's an angel anyway.

    Now here's a really strange thing. We were over a friend's house, and their son got one of those 3d gaming goggles, she tried it and thought it was really cool, and didn't feel ill at all. :confused:

    This reminds me of a homily, 'If your wife cannot be at your right hand, let your right hand be your wife'. In your case, when you're not wanking, you are gaming with your, 'partner'. :p

    I don't live with anyone...that super kingsize bed is mine, all mine. Waking up on a sunday to a fart that registers on the richter scale, followed by a coffee, dump, read of the papers, all in absolute silence...is golden

    Yes, my wife is a gamer now, although she was not until after we met. I can happily say that I corrupted her in that regard. It's pretty cool to be able to play with our son as well now that he's old enough to manage some easier games with us.
