How do you guys balance time for video games with time for your friends and girlfriend?
I work a full time job, have a girlfriend, and still play plenty of vidya.
It helps that my girlfriend is big into vidya. We are currently playing D:OS and Vermintide. Fun stuff.
Though I do, generally, limit the more hardcore vidya to the weekends when I (or we) can play for more extended periods of time.
Generally after work I only get 2-3 hours of vidya, so I play more casual or drop in/drop out stuff. The weekends I can play for a pretty long time. This weekend we're probably gonna play D:OS all day.
i dont really go out anymore, just got a few very close ones that i talk to a bunch
she just kind of shoehorns herself into my day because she cant do anything on her own
I'm a grad student, so my work/research is the big draw on my vidya time. If I'm lucky, I stay up on Friday night and play vidya for 4-5 hours. Otherwise that's it.
My girlfriend doesn't mind. We live together and spend all our other free time doing stuff together, so its not an issue of her feeling left out. She likes video games, but generally simpler/more relaxed ones. We play together occasionally.
Don't do too many things with friends outside of a few events here or there. I prefer the company of my gf to a lot of my friends in this city.
I live with my fiance, play vidya every day right now since im waiting to start my new job.
see friends every now and again usually the weekend.
Pretty much exclusively play wii u and the nintendo backlog right now.
Friends are getting ps4's hopefully we can get into something online.
See girlfriend twice, maybe 3 times a week. See the Bros around once or twice. Plenty of time for vidya on my own, though I game a lot with those Bros anyway. Playing rocket league while chatting on TS is really comfy
>> they have friends and girlfriends
>implying they're not just making shit up to impress neckbeards on the internet
My gf lives with her parents as she has to travel to college and I see her on the weekend to Monday.
I'm in my midtwenties and in a rural area friends are a fair distance away.
All are into video games so we interact through those.
>time for your friends
These things overlap most of the time.
Other than that I just do different things on different days. Some days I don't sleep so well, some days I don't play vidya, some days I can't be arsed to do uni work, some days I don't come to /v/ oh who am I kidding. The girlfriend bit is a work in progress.
What doesn't it have to do with videogames?
There was an episode where Rachel gets a Pac-Man arcade machine, and Ross wants to invite his nephew over to play it. However Joey gets the high score and enters in a dirty word as his name, so Phoebe has to keep getting new high scores so that the word Joey put in won't appear when Ross' nephew plays it. She's about to get the last high score she needs but messes up, causing her to swear all over the place right as Ross' nephew walks in.
Might've gotten a few characters mixed up but it went something like that.
>time for your friends and girlfriend?
I meant the game.
As for the show, it really wasn't that good. Chandler needed to get slapped, the Ross and Rachel thing was stretched out for so long it just became annoying, and it popularized the idea of season-ending cliffhangers.
usually I have to pick 2 to cater to during the week.
Generally my priorities are as follows
My girlfriend has a high place on the list because she's basically a really attentive friend who's nice enough to cook for me and plays co-op whenever I want to.
My friends are obviously salty about this, but hey, I never told them to stay single.
>How do you guys balance time for video games with time for your friends
My hand isn't that needy, we have a little fun every morning but after that I'm free to do as I please.
I'm usually playing different Wii U or 3DS games w/ friends. Whether be online or local.
Only non-Nintendo games I play w/ friends as of late have been Destiny & WWE 2k16.
As for girlfriend, she already takes up shit ton of my time. But she's into anime and vidya. So can play w// her sometimes. Then any time extra is for school
Basically I'm a dead soul
It's not hard to get a girlfriend you just have to be light-hearted and not ugly. Then you just do things in public and inevitably some girls will start talking to you.
I have a girlfriend and girls still pass me notes and shit with their numbers on it. It gives me anxiety because I just want to be a faithful boyfriend but these girls make me look bad.
Don't have a girlfriend anymore. Broke up with her because she faked being for attention, tried to look through my phone and was leaving the country soon. Played more vidya then. I just work on my code now instead with my bros play some fighting games on the weekends.
>broke up with girlfriend because she tried to look through my phone
Were you hiding something from her?
I let my girlfriend dig through everything of mine. I'm totally clean with nothing to hide except irrelevant shit like old porn I forgot to delete.
>Get gf who has low self-esteem, insecure, and emotionally dependent and willing to get into your interests to keep your affection
>Have only a small group of extremely close and chill friends who have a variety of interests but occasional time together goes a long
>Work a job you can at least sleep at night with and feel comfy
shits easy son. Get good.
>read online about different women lusting hard over their bf/husband
>realize no girl has ever felt this way about me
Chandler was brilliant
>realize that a lot of girls have, in fact, lusted over me
>turned them all away intentionally because this idea terrifies me
>not having a gf and friends who play vidya with you
This is literally what MMOs are for. Ability to enjoy large worlds and group, cooperative gameplay with friends regardless of where you are.
GF and I are playing SWTOR atm, with several RL friends. Also still play WoW, FFXIV, and Destiny.
Growing up doesn't mean throwing away the things you enjoy, find people who like to do them with you.
At the same time, don't get locked into a small part of your life, make sure you find friends who open you to new experiences. Went skydiving last summer for the first time, fucking insane experience.
If it's just GF and me, we play anything. Biggest fucking letdown is Halo not having splitscreen, what the fuck 343. We co-oped Halos 1-4 and suddenly we can't. Eat a dick you faggots.
When I'm not playing vidya, I use my spare time to lift and watch anime. Nobody's going to drag me out of MY cocoon!
Oh we have a tough guy here huh....... *unsheathes my twin katanas* Well, let's see how tough you really are! *jumps into the air* TAAAAKE THIIIIIIIIIIIIS *spins around and slashes your face open* Not so tough now, huh????? *grabs you and throws you up* It's time to finish this little charade *holds my katanas above my head* YOU ARE FINIIIIISHEEEEEEEED!!!!!!!!!!! *jumps upwards so that you get impaled on my swords* Heh.... easy.....
By not having any friends or girflriend.
You literally only need a dog for companionship.
Being a NEET gets fucking boring.
After I graduated highschool, I was a NEET for 4 years. I couldn't stand it near the end, and was desperate for shit to do.
Getting a job was great. I have plenty of money to buy whatever I like (within reason), can eat what I like, and still have time for vidya.
You don't if your GF isn't also interested in them. My ex-gf said she didn't mind but she made it pretty apparent she didn't like them when I had my bi-weekly game sessions with my friends
