"Hey babe, wanna play some Area 51?"
Brilliant, right? What gamer guy doesn't want to play nostalgic arcade games with his wife? This was sure to lighten up the mood. To my surprise, K said, "Uhhh... why don't I watch you as you play?"
Whaaaa?? "Come on come on, it'll be fun," I said, dragging K along by the neck. And you know what? We did have fun! And I also found out my shooting skills have improved a lot since childhood. ^_~ Before we knew it, our food had arrived and our moods had lifted. But my curiosity was still piqued.
"So why didn't you want to play Area 51 with me before"? I asked, mouth half-full of pepperoni. I couldn't believe his answer.
"Well... it's a really badly made game."
Seriously?! My gamer husband is such a gamer snob! I guess that's what happens when you've played as many games as he has. Now I know though: if we're ever arguing on a date night, whip out the quarters and hope there's a cheesy old arcade machine around. ^_^
