Mike talks about his experiences helping his wife explore gaming for the first time, and trying to find a genre that is right for her.
I'm glad my wife is not into gaming, so after spending some time together she can do her stuff and I do mine.
Part of me totally agrees, but there are some games that my girlfriend and I have the most fun playing together
Get a motorcycle! Then just run away... That's what I do! Or would do if I had a significant other.
I'd also be happy with "Helping Our Significant Others Cope With Our Gaming Habits"
Man....forget about it. Mine aint interested unless its something she can download to her phone. Like that damn chef game she always plays.
Resident Evil 5 and 6, are really good, for that special awareness(see article), because movement is so slow and clunky, and they also offer splitscreen coop.
If I got the rest of my family into gaming, I'd probably never get to play my Xbox One, though.
Wife is into world war history for some reason (she's totally into Hello Kitty and anything pink, but somehow got into WW1/2 history) and the idea of getting to kill Nazi's in Wolfenstein : Old Blood totally got her into FPS games... just have to find a subject matter that is interesting to her, not everyone wants to shoot for the sake of shooting (or whatever other kind of game you're into)
