This Gamer Dumped His Girlfriend When She Gave Him An Ultimatum


When I was growing up, I was a pretty avid gamer. I've lost the passion for playing and have focused my interests elsewhere, but that doesn't mean I can't relate to gamers who are looked down upon for their hobby. It's a hobby — one that isn't particularly dangerous or risky — yet people still look down on it, somehow assuming it is so much worse than what kids did back in their day (even as people my age grow up, and are young enough to have played similar games when they were young). 

It's true that playing video games has become more "mainstream." There's a reason spots like Barcade are teeming with business, and epic-looking trailers for big budget games are everywhere.

But there are still some people who look down on gamers, like this guy's girlfriend who just couldn't stand the fact that he was going online to game with his "nerd" friends (when, presumably, she felt like she was more deserving of his time or something).
