Christiaan Joubert from ITF Gaming has decided share his wisdom on helping you find and hang on to the gamer girl of your dreams.
Better Option: Do what I did, find a girl you like and turn them into a gamer. My fiance had only really like Snowboarding Kids and Mario Party when we met, now in the past month she, by a miracle or satan, beat the intro level of Dark Souls. You just gotta figure out what kinda games they like and find ways to inspire them to try new games. I told her I would buy her anything she wanted, basically a new car, if she beat Dark Souls. After 2 months she still hasn't gotten far in Dark souls though.
Thankfully my fiance was a gamer before we met, which was rather epic. - Darryl Linington
Dude that's cruel. Gotta start a little more forgiving. Dark Souls....sheesh.
To be fair, if she beats that, anything else will seem easy. Well done.
But to be honest, does he even have the money to throw away if she beats it? o.e
@legend No...that's why I chose Dark Souls, to buy myself a couple decades for her to beat it. I did though about sh*t my pants when she got past the intro level on her second try with very little help from me.
for now Car is safe ;>
My fear is she will turn Into Penny like in the WoW Big Bang Theory episode. As it is she's never even played Mario. I shit you not. But she has seen me play Infamous and was all, "hey do those grenade things again! Over there is a guy get him! Watch out! You missed a shard!!!". I know if she ever picked up a controller it would be all over. I will never show her Journey. I would never see her again.
But it's much more deeper than that. Politics, religion, if a couple simply does not share common goals or priorities it's over. & I'm tellin you it's hard as hell, I'm not mainstream at all.
