Oh, God. I never thought this day would come. It is official. My boyfriend and I have spoken thooe three little words that we never thought we’d say to each other: we are …”the gamer couple” It’s true! I admit it! We have totally become that couple who meets up just to play video games.
Our latest obsession: Skryim: The Elder Scrolls (as if “the gamer couple” didn’t sound nerdy enough).
It’s a game set in a Nordic nation called “Skyrim”. You get to create your own character and pretty much kick the you-know-what out of weird mythical creatures. He loves it for the action; I love it because I get to roam around villages “saving people from the dragons”.
I lied. I really just like the game because I can ride a horse in it. I just bought one which I named “Gerty- short for Gertrude”!
I’ve always liked playing video games. I grew up playing Nintendo 64 with my male cousins, but I never thought I’d do it with my significant other.
I’d like to consider it a bonding experience. It’s better than watching TV because we motivate and cheer each other on during our “missions” instead of just laying on the couch staring blankly at a screen. I think everyone should play some sort of game with their partner because it teaches you the value of supporting one another, an important quality to have in a romantic relationship.
Do you play games with your partner? What types do you play?
