I've been with my girlfriend for over 5 years now and lucky for me shes a gamer too, but i had a friend who finshed with his missis because she hated him gaming!

So i ask you gamers out there what would you do if your girlfriend said "its me or the xbox...who you gonna pick?"

Such an easy question.... Does your 360 give you action? (And I DONT mean gameplay wise) :), pretty simple decesion for anyone over age 15 or so.... I would prefer a girl over 360 anytime, now girlfriend wise... You shouldn't be with a girl you can't convince to let you be a gamer if you are indeed a gamer... That's a BAD BAD combo, specially if your an MMO fan haha

People will flood in saying girlfriend, the way I look at it, if she's so deadset on changing you then she isn't worth it to begin with. Xbox 360 all the way!!! Seriously though, compromise is fine, you can limit your gaming and spend time with her...but if she wants it gone completely then it's her that needs to go.

I love this kind of topics, makes us gamers seem so laaaame... I pick WOMEN over videogames anyday. But girlfriends... Let me put it this way, if the girl doesn't like games is fine, I'll avoid gaming or even talking about it around her, but if she is a jerk about it, something like "your videogame or me!", I'll pick the videogame, and look for either a gamer girl (which is rare around here), or at least a comprehensive one. My girlfriend doesn't like videogames, but she accepts the fact that I do though. Again: Women > Videogames, anyday. Sex > Videogames, anyday. Having a good time with a significant other > videogames, anyday. Though I won't quit playing because of one woman, I'll just find another one that likes/respects/accepts a gamer.

Gaming has ruined enough of my relationships. My girlfriend dumped me back in the Counter-Strike days because I wouldn't pay attention to her besides between rounds. I didn't even know I was dumped till she walked out the room and I stopped playing hours later.

After that WoW came and almost ruined it again for me with another girl, but I cut back and decided getting laid was more important than getting better epic gear.

Now I game barely at all. I miss it a lot, but my sex life has gotten a lot better because of it. Girls > Gaming. There's only so much pleasure you can get from on screen characters ;).

If your girlfriend is trying to change who you are, than she's not worth it. My girlfiend respects that I like gaming.

I have to admit its great that you all pick your girlfriend but your only picking your girlfriend because of sex! dosnt sound like it has anything else to do with love or company...

I would have to say gaming. Girlfriends become too much of a hassle after a while. First they want you to stop gaming, then they want you to buy em stuff all the time, then they want you to quit hanging out with your friends and after they have totally taken over your life, they quit putting out and start treating you like a slave/piece of dirt/source of income (no offense ladies, just speaking from personal experience =) . I think if a girl really loves you she won't mind if you play games as long as you don't overdo it. Balance, its all about the balance.

Girlfriend definitly anyday. My girlfriend is great! She likes to play some video games like Halo 3, Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter and she even bought me a Nintendo DS and New SMB for Christmas and my Bday. When I'm with her I rarely play video games, unless we are playing Halo online together, because she is way more important than video games and I have a better time with her than with video games.

Gaming, no question. If some chick said "Me or the Xbox," then screw her. If someone wants me to give up my favorite, harmless hobby, then she can go to hell. I'll play Team Fortress all week, then go to the bar on the weekend to find an upgrade.

Oh, something more: I've been gaming since I was wee, over 20 years. In that time I've had innumerable girlfriends. Statistically, gaming's a sure thing, whereas a girlfriend has terrible odds.

corb77

me too ive been with my girl alittle over 3 years and shes a gamer too. not to the extent that i am but we play games together she really likes the lego games. But i also get to do my gaming too with my fighting and action games.

as for "its me or the xbox...who you gonna pick?" if a girl doesnt understand that gaming is a part of my life and doesnt want to get used to it and wants to change me then id kick her ass to the curb. Thats what i am a gamer and im not changing it or giving it up to please someone. ive been gaming since i was like 5 and dont plan on stopping anytime soon

I've been with my girl for over 4 years now.. and if she gave me an ultimatum like that, she'd hit the bricks, I play games with nearly all of my friends, and keep in touch with friends that don't live nearby anymore, bros and vidgeos before hoes man.

I'm with my girlfriend for almost 2 years now, and like I said, she doesn't like videogames, but she respects the fact that I do. I never deny her attention or anything, and I completly separate my gaming life from her, however, I always told her to respect the fact that I'm a hardcore gamer to my very heart, and I don't intend stop being one. It's like if I have traced a line, between my gaming habits and my relationship. I make sure my gaming habits never cross the line, and I tell her to never cross over on top of my habit as well. I won't change who I am, never, but I don't bother her, she doesn't bother me. Read my sig and you'll understand... "the more I know people... the more I like my dog and my videogame. / Videogames may die on you, but they'll never betray you"

If she wants to change me because I'm a gamer, then she ain't worth the trouble anyway, to be honest. If your girl doesn't accept you for who you are, then I'd say leave her. I'd accept her hobbies, so she should accept mine too. You know?

Your Xbox 360 is loyal. It will never ask too much of you. It will never scold you. It will never leave you. If you dump it in a trash can and come back the night after to recover it, it will forgive you. If you sell it on eBay and then buy it back, it will still love you. If you break its faceplate, it'll worry about looking ugly in your eyes. If it RRODs, it will be depressed for the two weeks it spends away from you. With all that said, I'd say a girlfriend is better. 360 doesn't offer sex.

Lucky for me I won't have to make that choice. My fiancee knows how much I enjoy it and even had an Xbox and a Ps2 when I met her. She prefers the milder games though, like Katamari and the Lego games. She does have the first 2 Halos, though.

Well, I'd make her stop participating in her favorite hobby if she went there. If she can't give something up for me I see no reason to do the same. Giving up gaming wouldn't be so bad, but I'd rather not be in a relationship where I have to abide by some stupid rules.

simple.. if you currently have a xbox360.. and a girlfriend, and you had to choose, to make it all easy.. if you want girlfriend.. just get rid of the xbox, and I REALLY doubt the people above are getting rid of their xbox, so their for.. it's all lies, I don't know ANYone that would do that anyways. OR just play your games when its just you, unless ya'll live together.. just play when you get the chance.. I have both, I don't need to give up something for someone yes I said that right, I keep my games and my lover

Not only is laid getting better than games, LIFE itself is better than games... I love games, but you have to learn to balance things, even without a girlfriend.... You sound like you had some serious issues with gaming... If gaming has ruined even just one of your relationships, then you have to reevaluate things.

Let's be realistic here half of the people who replied here have never actually been in a relationship since they simply cite sex as to why they would rather keep the girlfriend. With that being said you never should have to choose between the two unless you are so addicted to games such as the WoW addicts. If that is the case then you deserve to die a lonely death. Just keep it in moderation. Balance is key with everything including scooby mcdoobies.

I agree with you, but there are people who don't have that balance. Some people just spend ALL their time playing video games. I have been with my girlfriend for 3 years in April, and she never bothered me because I usually don't play if she's here, and recently, thanks to Left 4 Dead, she plays video games!!! That's a win-win.

lol I have one but she isn't into games much. She's played an hour or two in FFXII and is just starting TLoZ: Ocarina of Time but will no doubt give up on it after a few more tries despite me trying to help her through it, she just don't have the patience.

Thankfully she don't give me any static over me playing them.

Gaming...it doesn't talk back! Seriously though...if the girlfriend or boyfriend is that insicure (spelled that wrong) that they have to make you choose over games or them, why would you want to be with them. They should wanto see you happy and if games do that, then they should respect that. Also though everything is best in moderation to.

To me it's easy a relationship with someone is a lot more important than a hobby. Video games can be bought years after release so there's no rush. If you truly enjoy being with the person choose the girl over the games. It's like choosing between your dog or electronics in a fire you can always buy things. Luckily though i found an amazing girl that enjoys watching me play games. Though she's not good at them lol.
