For those with girlfriends/wives/kids: how do you find time for Halo?

once you have kids you learn to be tired all the time. sleep becomes immaterial.

I play when my girlfriend is not home or when she's doing something like playing with her 3DS. No game is ever a priority over her for me.

My girlfriend doesnt really mind, as long as I give her what she needs before I start playing, she's good. Sometimes in the middle of me playing she'll just come up and grab me or kiss me or something, which basically means after this game, you need to do your boyfriendly duties.

I try not to play for more than 2.5-3 hours though, then she gets antsy/bored.

By the time your kids are asleep, aren't you tired too?

not when they go to bed at 9:00-9:30 est, and i go to bed at midnight most of the time.

My girlfriend is a gamer herself. She doesn't like FPS games though, and sticks mostly to handheld consoles, especially the DS.

I can play whenever I want and for how long I want. Sometimes she plays games more than I do XD

I have a stationary bike that I work out on daily. Might as well be playing a video game when I'm on that and I usually get another hour or so of chill time somewhere else along the day.

I cant spend as much time as I want to on Halo, college (2nd degree) and my girlfriend are also important to me.

I usually play at night after wife and kid are asleep.

if i can stay awake myself, this. i have a 5 month old & he keeps changing up his sleep schedule. if not, i have dedicated gaming time on sat.

I live with my girlfriend, but she enjoys games as well so normally it is ok. She is horrible at Halo and my stats suffer for it, because she loves to try to play online. She says the game is pretty. In my head horrible stats are worth having a gf that at least tries to play.
