    Greg Proops is pretty good as well.

    My wife is a huge Final Fantasy fan and when XIII comes out, I'll get her that. She's played several games with me, which is pretty awesome.
    We usually catch the US version on ABC family. Proops is really funny. My wife and I both hate the woman, who's name escapes me. She's just not funny and seems like she can't say anything without seeming like she's flirting or whatever. It's annoying.

    I haven't played an FF game in sooo long.

      I can't play a FF game myself. I've tried and I hated it. But I enjoy it a lot more when I can watch my wife play. Similarly, my wife can't play Madden 10...

      ... but she at least acted outraged on my behalf when Kyle Orton turned down a seven-year, $105 million contract so he could go into free agency in his 11th year.

        In my dynasty where I'm playing as the 49ers, the Colts signed Kyle Orton to a 6 year deal and cut Manning.

        Super realistic huh?

          Which Manning are we talking about? Peyton or Eli? Either way, though, cutting either of the two Mannings to clear way for Orton is nuts.

          On my Franchise game, the Colts traded Manning to Buffalo right after 2012. I didn't notice it until I played Buffalo that year and noticed their QB was way better than anyone I had encountered that season. I go to double-check, and yeah, Manning's playing QB for the Bills. Once the game was over, I went to see who had replaced Peyton as the starting QB in Indianapolis.

          It was Chris Simms.

          I LOL'd pretty hard at that.

              i met my better half playing WOW, which i cant figure out cause every time I heard of people getting married or just getting together from playing a game I would scratch my head and say "how in the world does that happen"

              I was on swing shift in the military so I figured the 15 a month for WOW was a worthy investment since I had so much time on my hands at odd hours. She was on a lot and it ended up being that we only played when we could play together. She was in Jersey and I in D.C.

                  IMO, don't bother with girls who tell you what to do for fun, etc. You set this sort of expectation up from the beginning when you start carving away the things you like in order to make her happy. She says you shouldn't hang out with your friends so much. You shouldn't drink so much. You should wear that kooky shirt she bought you. Forget that.

                  If you are a game junkie, an alcoholic, or a complete slob with zero taste, that's one thing. But you shouldn't need a girl to tell you that. You probably already knew that, and you probably just need to be single in that case.

                  But if you play to relax after a hard day's work, heck if somebody wants to tell you not to. You're a grown man (right?)

                  Now to answer the question, the trouble with girls who play games is that they're usually pretty competitive about it. When a girl doesn't play, whether you let her win or beat her, she doesn't care. But if you play games against a girl who thinks she's good, it's a Catch-22 scenario. She doesn't want you to let her win, and if you beat her she goes into mild depression. If you ask me, the whole experience is somewhat overrated and I'd rather do something together that we're equally bad at.

                        My wife always watches me play video games. Even if I were playing something like, MW2, she'd be quick to point out, "I saw someone!". She watches me play football and hockey, and cusses right along with me when something BS happens. We play Rockband and Guitar Hero together alot too.

                        I also watch stuff with her she likes, but I'm very firm about things I don't want to watch, ie: Extreme Makeover Home Edition, What not to wear, etc etc. We watch Who's Line, NCIS, and Seinfeld together almost on a daily basis.

                        She understands there are shows I won't waste my time watching, so she either goes and watches it in the bedroom, or I go find something else to do while she watches it on the big TV (this happens more often than not, because I want her to have her fair share of watching her shows on a comfy couch and a big TV too).

                        I guess the difference is when your married you compromise not for the sake of compromising but for the sake of sanity. If she chose not to watch me play games, I wouldn't mind, but I do think it's cool that she does.

                        I guess the only advice I would give you is to tell her firmly but politely, "I really don't want to watch this crap".
                        compromise......eeeeeh. yeah it's important for sure. my wife doesn't mind if i play video games (she hates that i throw a fit like my 3 year old if i'm losing or something isn't going my way or i don't agree, but the same goes for if the Broncos are losing in real life lol).

                        she basically gets the tv all day when i'm gone at work...so she's pretty lenient. my daughter will say: "dad...you don't have to play your game..." then when i do she throws a fit and runs in her room and my wife will say: "daddy can play his game on HIS tv if he wants..."

                        heheh...

                        we both spent the majority of yesterday lounging on the couch watching the whole first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender which i thought was cool. she's into anime for some reason but only certain stuff.

                        it's because it's a button-mash game. chics are uncanny good at those because they don't have to know what they are doing, they just hit buttons, coupled with they don't really care, they always win.

                              I wouldn't call SSB a button mash game. There are a lot of people who are really good at it that I can't beat and she can.
