Does you partner game?

Yes
No
Sometimes, more of a casual gamer.

Basically what the title says.

 

For some reason I've always wanted my Wife to be more into gaming, she enjoys games like LittleBigPlanet and Ratchet & Clank but she wouldn't go out and buy them herself, she would only play them If I brought them. When she does play games she has lots of fun but has no desire to look for other games she may enjoy, rather she will wait to play games that I buy or suggest she plays.

How about you guys? can any suggestions on how I can turn her into a more of a gamer :P

My gf plays a lot of Fallout and Skyrim. I also noticed that a ton of girls love Skyrim, so maybe that's a good place to start with your wife.

I'm not sure If I can see my wife enjoying that game :P she likes more basic games, not RPGs. I remember getting her to try FF10 she hated it xD

Well i noticed that a lot of girls like games that tend to let you do whatever you want. So maybe something like pokemon, animal crossing, or maybe the Sims. But still give skyrim a chance... every girl i know that enjoys playing videogames, loves that game.

Yes. My wife and I are always finding Android games we can play against each other on our phones, and she also loves Tetris on Wii, Mario Kart games, NSMB games, and trivia/game show type games.

Yes, but not a 5% as dedicated as me. She mostly like Nintendo games, finished games like Zelda OoT, Luigis Mansion, 3D Land, Galaxy 2, Ratchet & Clank, Heavy Rain or Beyond. Other games she likes to play coop with me and or her child, like Rayman Origins/Legends, LBP, Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Lego Marvel and a couple of racing games.

She also seems to mostly only enjoy games with happy fantasy and colorful worlds ("childish games") and "mature" games completely turn her off.

 

Edit: On the other hand, she is a big reader. On that matter, she prefers the most gritty, bloody, psychopathic themes for her books. I don't fully understand this

My boyfriend played WoW for many years, like guild raids and all that but stopped about a year ago. Now he mostly plays Dota 2 and i got him into Uncharted so he became a Naughty Dog fan.
