Yahoo: I've been a fan of Halo games since Halo: CE, but when Halo 2 was launched, my gaming addiction hit an all-time high - and brought my marriage to an all-time low. The following is how my Halo gaming addiction almost put an end to my marriage.
First thing that came to my mind when i read the title
OP is a retard. His wife should of left him. I play a crap ton of games but I have a wife and kid. Any reasponsible person would know when to take a break. This guy would rather chit chat with 13yo kids than his wife? Epic Loser.
You would never see anyone in the history of gaming get addicted like this to a PS3 exclusive.
How should anyone take that statement...? o.O I got addicted to finishing Uncharted 2 and Heavy Rain. In fact, I'm on my 4th playthrough of Heavy Rain...
Probably because PS3 owners know that there's more things to do and deal with in life in the real world than just gaming... It's fine to enjoy things in life, but to a point. But whatever, the weak are always the addicts;)
Terror_B you're basically saying that they have no lives and void out reality to get addicted to gaming.
we are not addicted be cause we have lots of exclusives to play and Most importantly have self control.( On the other hand this guy only has Halo , so sad)
that's because PS3 gamers don't have to pay $40-$60 for online! plus, no matter how hardcore a gamer you are, losing marriage due to gaming makes you a RETARD!
What the hell was he thinking? FAIL @ Life, Loser.
Nice icon picture. America FTW!
I dunno, Halo and sex are pretty equal in terms of quality I know i'm setting myself up for " You must be getting shit sex then" but still...
His wife should have left him for being an idiot.
Surprising how he managed to get one in the first place! He sounds like an idiot.
she is probably really ugly and fat. no lies, this is not brad and angelina. this is real life. this is john and fugly girl like him, she was probably grateful for the attention. and the marriage probably seemed like something they needed to do (all of this hypothetical, but a hot chick and a dude not addicted to drugs but games is highly unlikely)
Oh sure. The girl is the one named fugly. It couldn't be possible that John is also an ugly dude, eh? Sexism at it's finest.
Reminds me of this looser. http://www.urbandictionary....
You ain't grizz baby.
Did i say i was grizz uhhh no just making stating an opinion y family is worth more than a game look what happen to this looser.
Who give's a flying fuck about spelling with such a fine ass?!
i would marry that ass in your avatar!!!! it would be ,my wife and i would never touch halo!!! lol
The master chief shall not win this time!
A Halo player that is married?
Joke would have been funny 6 years ago.
If i told it 6 years ago you would still be in nappies at nursery school, which is why i waited until now.
lol... it was worth the wait.
There's a good chance you're a snotty teenager, lonely and still living in his parent's basement. Also I'm probably older than you, given your juvenile sense of humour. Keep trying to be funny, somewhere out there there's someone who might laugh at your grade-school jokes.
Ha what a joke
a PS3 player that is on n4g all day waiting for games to finally come out?
that comment i hold dearly. It is so true, 1 more week to go in this ugly cum-stained room (its exams).
@basil that was lame. U will never be married.
Who the hell wants to marry? Not in this day and age. Its way too expensive. My gf scares me with baby talk. When its fun independent job time, and i make my own money for I, the last thing i will do is save up for some idiots education. Cash for wheat free food, protein shakes and games. the gf, who is an accountant (thank god) should and WILL take care of everything els.
I know someone that skipped out of his child birth so he could go to a midnight opening for a madden game. sad but true.
This man needs help.
Some people just take games way too seriously... I read a similar story of a guy addicted to WoW and his wife cheated on him but he didn't care because "he had WoW". Sad really.
It does take balance in life. Games like many other things offer many the ability to escape from reality and sometimes real problems. I am glad whatever was going on with this person, he was able find other ways to cope and strengthen his real world relationships
If you wear spartan armour in bed, your wife will end up complaining.. All Halo players. Take this as a lesson LoL
"My dream was to become a professional gamer" kill yourself
i would love to get paid millions for playing games.
i would love to get paid millions for scratching my ass and yelling at 12 year olds too
that sounds like an ign job. editor in chief
Everyday I thank Bungie and halo for ending my completely awful marriage. I married my ex cuz she got pregnant...thought it was the "right" thing to do. She never got the gumption to leave until halo took more of my time than she did. So...she moved in with some guy and asked for a divorce. I obliged citing her adultery as the reason. Lulz. Got my kid, house, my car...all my furniture..she lost her job which payed pretty well and now pays me child support on her McDonald's job. Plus she moved out of state and can't afford to visit our daughter who couldn't care less anymore...now I'm engaged to a prettier, more educated gamerchick with a masters in education and a cushy tutoring job. Thank you Halo! Thanks Bungie! I blame Stosh for my FINALLY ridding me of my problems!
wow.. if that's true.. that's one good thing.
100% my friend. God bless AMERICA!
Thats pure awesome. Well done man.
Doesn't hurt that McDonald's wages don't generally afford an attorney. Lololololol.....awwww...too bad
She could easily burn up 2 years worth of McDonalds income on a custody battle and she still might not win considering you're the primary caretaker.
Play Halo: Reach. Killed off my addiction(exaggeration) like a pic of a naked (ugly) fat chick would kill a boner. Seriously, Halo: Reach is poopy when compared to the greatness that is Halo: CE, and 2. Though I am happy that Halo: Reach came out. Without that realization of how bad it was I would have never experienced the awesomeness that is Dragon Age: Origins. Can't wait for DA2!
SAME.I still play h3 but much less. I too purchased DA:O after the abomination that is reach was released. I'm an elf mage. Thanks again Bungie. This time for snapping me out of It. Lol
Let's hope that 343i is smart enough to leave the gimmicks(armor abilities and cR/armor customization) out of Halo. Bloom could go too, but it's not that bad.
come on if i was going to get "addicted" to a game it would not be HALO!!! this guy should not even have a wife! PATHETIC!
My thoughts. he must at least be addict to something good.
blogger is just a plain idiot
You'll see. As you grow up, you start spending less and less time with each game. Pretty soon you're not even beating the games you buy. Then you realize, it's nice not having to obsess over trophies and leaderboards, and youll learn to play games only until they stop being fun. Oh, and your reflexes go to crap, no twitch.
oh my god thats depressing because thats happening right now.
