As gamers, video games are an essential part of our personalities. They provide an escape from the real world, helping us unwind from work, school, and everything else in between. Sometimes we enjoy games that have multiplayers built in. We'll call up all our buds, turn on the big screen, and kick some ass as a team on Xbox Live.
There are some of us that feel differently. Some like the solitude, the isolation from everyone else, to relax by playing a solo RPG. Now, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that; everyone needs some alone time. Either way you look at it, it's either you yourself or you and your buddies sharing these wonderful moments of smack talk or just zoning out.
Enter stage right. The girlfriend. We divide once more. There are some of us that literally shove the controllers into their hands. There are others who prefer to keep the fairer sex at a distance as they "yes," "uh-huh," and "I understand" their way to a conversation over the phone (as they sticky some noob in Halo 3, of course). I tend to be of the latter; I'm sorry girls, video game time is ME time, which also includes football, unless, of course, you want to learn how football is played.
