MTV has an article up on a support group started at Kansas State University called "Girlfriends Against Video Games." They offer plenty of anecdotal evidence of a growing divide between the mostly male gamers and their ignored girlfriends.
Some of these gamers sound like they actually have a problem. One explained, "When the next week started, I played continuously, like every day. Probably four to five hours a day, maybe more." The girlfriend of another complained, "He has a campus job, and campus jobs don't pay very much at all. Then he gets his paycheck and spends it all on video games."
We can all agree gaming is great, but there has to be some middle
ground if your significant other doesn't game… wait, there's a solution right there. Track down the elusive "girl
gamer." Problem solved.
