How in the world did I become like this?
- I enjoy recharging at the end of the day by simply being with K.
- I like being productive with my hands, but want something on in the background.
- Watching K play games doesn't require my full attention.
- K tends to reveal behind-the-scenes industry tidbits if I'm around. ^_^
I know other wives who love to do this too, especially if their husbands' game has an in-depth story and amazing cut scenes (ex: Final Fantasy series, Grand Theft Auto IV). Laura and Lance kept their long-distance relationship alive for over 2 years by getting on WoW and Skype every night. And Sara helps Ben out as his in-game navigator, scouring the strategy guide as he plays to point out any secret rooms or important characters to meet.
In related news, K pointed me to a new blog called The Gamer's Girl which vows to "bring the Gamer and their Girls closer together." Her latest article tells the sweet story of her relationship's first gaming experience, so go check it out.
