For me it depends on what mood she's in. I usually only play for an hour or two at a time. If we're just sitting around doing nothing at all then she'll say go ahead. This situation happens more often. On the flip side, If we have an argument and I go and turn on the 360, I put myself at risk of never getting laid again.

I play just about whenever I want and she never minds.

I'll get the occasional "Don't you ever get bored out of your mind just playing videogames all the time?"

To which I reply, "Do you realize what it was you just asked a male human being?"

She'll occasionally play some Skyrim or Fallout and sort of just run around talking to people and not really doing any quests, but it's still funny to watch. She doesn't game much herself. She's a fairly typical "Sims 3 is all I play" girl. >_>

My girl is overall cool with it, more so now that I make money while playing. I just make her first if she needs to talk or what not I'll put the game down. I work to and have College so it's not like I'm playing ALL DAY just trying to record more often and she knows that but like I said if need be it gets shut off and handle whats more important to me.

I voted for "It depends on the mood she's currently in." - she plays with me from time to time but not enough to say we play together.

At least you have that. lol My women for some reason is not interested in ANY video game. As long as she has a show to watch, everything is all good.

My past 3 girlfriends didn't mind, they actually thought it was kinda cool that I was somewhat known on XBL in the Halo 2 days. They all had DS' now that I think about it...my Animal Crossing character has seen as much action as I have O_o

So not a single person yet has a woman that absolutely hates it? I'm surprised.
