Forums - Gaming Discussion - Don't become like this guy

I've spent much of my week playing Peggle, Ninja Turtles, Saints Row 2 (what?) and Tetris with my girlfriend and kid. I think this guy should've made his family a part of his hobby instead of making his hobby an escape from his family. It seems to work pretty well for me.

Sad, but he's probably not the first and definitely not the last. If you can't balance your obsession/hobby with your normal life then you deserve what's coming to you; solitude.

Well said.

She hooked it up herself, and finished a mission.  She was so proud of herself, that she came and got me to come watch her play.  I admit, I was proud of her, too.  Now, she plays it all of the time.  She usually just dresses up her character or listens to "Take On Me" in the music store, though.  Sometimes, she shoots an old lady.

 

 

I'm a horrible parent.

That's so sad. Maybe if he's lucky, his family will watch and forgive him. Redemption saves.

Depends how old she is. I got Doom as a Christmas present when I was 8.
