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

My daughter is just under two years old, so I hand her a controller with dead batteries and let her pretend she's playing. She's destined to become my favorite teammate though. Girl grabbed my controller when I was taking a drink and got her first kill in Bad Company 2 at four months old.

I find it amusing that something a drunk person babbled at me is considered "common sense" by Dismind! - Brain Hammer

I got my wife into Halo, so when I play, she plays too, and doesn't get shi**y with me.

Now, single-player RPG's or Action Adventure games are a whole new story....

My wife will only watch games with interesting stories so she ignores most shooters. Luckily my wife's a teacher and has tons of lesson plans and work to grade when she gets home so I get to play while she does that! It's like 2-3 hours a day gauranteed I got the TV!

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


This.
The only bad thing is not being able to talk to my friends in the party because I wake them up and my gf gets mad at me =[

Wife and kid here. I work overnights so when I get home in the morning they are both leaving out to work/school so I usually play an hour or 2 then before catching a nap. On my days off I'll usually just stay up and play at night when they're sleep.

If my significant other got pissed at me for playing video games I would likely dump her. It has been a hobby of mine since I was a child.

What makes Halo different than any other game?

I've got a wife and 4 kids. 9, 6, and twins a year and a half.

My wife goes to school for RN and works full time. She's like never home.

My 9 year old son loves playing. Although we haven't played 4 together yet, we've spent a lot of time split screening 3, ODST and reach. We play a ton of games together. Sometimes I need to put my foot down and say no, because he gets too "addicted" to games and its all he talks about and thinks about. I'd rather him play only a couple hours over the weekend so he doesn't get distracted from his school work.

My 6 year old daughter always wants to play but has no idea how to do anything. The wii is the only system she understands how to play. She likes watching games though.

My 17 month old twin girls entertain me more than video games do. They are so curious about everything, it's so fun getting into "trouble" with them. Babies are amazing.

But, when it comes down to "daddy time", I play whenever I can. My games usually idle most of the day. And I jump in and play a match or 2 here and there. Most of my gameplay is when it's bedtime for all my chillens. That's what I call them.
