My wife or gamer's anonymous
« on: March 5, 2007 12:31 am CST »
Had a little of a argument with my wife earlier over me spending too much time in the game. I work nights so I'm home by 2:30am EST at the latest, I have the mornings until 5pm EST when I go in and I drop the baby off at the sitter's around 11am-12pm EST. So what am I doing until 5pm? You guess it in the server leveling but what am I doing when my wife wants to snuggle up? Trying to play the game, she says I choose the computer over her and that the game gets more attention than her lately. She says I have to choose, she continues to say I have a addiction and that I should give it all up.

I'm the type that it's all or nothing, I don't want just a piece of time to play the game I want to play it when I want, I don't want just half of the burger I want my own, that's me. What do you think, does she have a point, am I spending too much time on the PC and not enough with her? Or is she just being over emotional? Should I give up gaming considering my huge addiction, I even choose it over sex which I don't find to be a big deal but tell me your thoughts.

Should I go cold turkey and give it up, manage my time (which would be very difficult, think of a pot head going cold turkey) or should I just keep on gaming when I want to and love on her when I get done?

Dude go for the wife. You've invested WAY more time in getting her and being with her. Like villman said don't let an 8 year old game get in between you two.

Love > Everything

I play anytime I'm not doing anything else, a rough 6 hours a day maybe, but it's not just the video game, it's the computer period, while leveling I'm off surfing the web, learning to program or learning to use a piece of software or whatever the case may be. I rather be doing something on the computer than trying to snuggle.

Just play when she isn't being an attention nazi.  There are things in life that are more important than this game.  I think a healthy marriage is one of them.  That doesn't mean you can't enjoy the game when you've got some free time, however.  We'll always be here.

As a point of history:  Our last server clear was on September 27, 2004.  That is 4963 days ago (13.6 years) as of today.

If you're visiting after a long hiatus and have forgotten your password, try emailing me via the support form at http://www.pcrpg.org.

If your character is from after the 2004 clear but appears to have been deleted or reset, chances are it was caught in one of the inactive account purges over the years.  Backups were made before such events, so try the support form.

Debating whether or not I made the right decision to get married or not, I was doing just find being a computer geek but then I gave into the pressures of my peers and started to explore the dating world and ended up getting married. Kind of ironic, just fours years ago I was talking with you all about me not liking sex and never getting married and here I am breaking my own set of rules, what was I thinking.

Oh well, guess I will have to cut my computing time in half, but I can't stand to see my peers surpass me, not in school, not in life and not in the game. When I started again there were a few players who were not that far ahead of me in remorts and a couple that started at the same level as me. Astal is starting to become at least 7 remorts ahead of my own, he was remort 4 when I started, surpassed Volcostn3 or what ever his name is. I don't know, maybe he's just a screwed up mental complex with me, I should properly seek professional help but I can pretty much psychoanalyze myself I just can't seem to fix the problem.

When you get to the point where you can afk level you can have the sex and the levels. Until then you have to choose.

Well if I can just sit there and play I can properly remort in 10 hours or so but that's with everything in the equation, other players in the zone and having to party, no where to level because too many people are in the zone, afking and being killed and not knowing for the next 4 - 6 hours, then real life calling for work and school. In all I can get one remort everyday which has been my goal and lately it has been a day-in-half to remort because my wife wants me to come to bed at night. I'm only remort level 17 right now.

It's just too bad that site plastered their logos on it.  It isn't a shirt they made up.  The design (and photo) are from another site which I can't remember.
