And getting him drunk is not the solution... bringing vomit into the equation will only make things worse.

Odd. Soda never helped me stay awake....Anyway it could be many different reasons. He could just have a personality where he is easily addicted to things and video games is what he is addicted to. He could be like me and have social anxiety disorder or social phobia where he is just afraid to talk about something that might make him look bad. If he is able to talk about his video game a lot then it might be because he is comfortable with that subject matter and confident that it won't put him in a bad light in any way. I suppose he might just not be that into you as well and I am sure there are plenty of other reasons that aren't coming to mind.

lol vomit... Getting someone tipsy don't get them to vomit. And it does work, it's the perfect gateway for shy guy to talk with girls.

^This guy knows.

And the other reason it might be is that he just ain't interested in you.

True I agree with you, plus he can barely pull himself away to take a shower. I don't know, it's like he just doesn't want to even try and prefers the video gaming. And thanks to the dude above for calling me a bitch..I guess the women in the video games are easier to deal with than real girls.

I said "like a bitch in heat". Not calling you one..Didn't mean anything offensive, it was a figure of speech. So I'm sorry if you felt verbally abused or harassed because of that.

Well from the way your describing the chap.. Why do you even care about him? What have you got to gain from making a relationship with this guy that you, by the looks of it have such disdain for.

CalifCat, you're definitely better off ditching that a-hole. He's addicted, and that's a hard thing to get over. I'm talking from experience here.

I wouldn't lump all guys(but i'm no one to talk).It may not be what you're stating.But the topic title does seem like so.

I know someone like that.And it kinda irritates me the way he shrugs his partner off because she is annoying him whle he's playing a game.When he actually does play with her. Then,when shes gone, he then complains about how she ruined getting some achievement & blah-blah.

In my environment, if you state any other game besides 2K or Madden(Ok exaggerated at little bit).You are a geek.Males in my area don't like to play video games.Whats on there mind is hip-hop,money and females 24/7(or at least it seems that way).

I do love to play video games. My habit is more for inspirational purpose.But My rule is to never put them above a person.I am not someone who is looking for a relationship though.And mainly, art comes first to me.

Eh. If things are that way and your bothered by it all that much I would say it isn't worth the trouble. Plenty of other guys out there with less irritating issues.

I'll concede that some guys are as incapable as the topic suggests, though it's also fair to say that many hobbies (or hobbies so prevalent, they become lifestyles, in this context) can draw a person so far into them that they can become socially inept. It's not just gaming that can cause this to happen, but it often takes a lot of heat for it. It's far too easy to just chalk it up as an (insert hobby here) addiction, and in some cases, it is just that. But it's not always the case.

I play games and watch anime daily. I much prefer when I have others in person to game/watch with, but due to my current circumstances (which I won't elaborate on right now) it isn't often very feasible for me. As a result, I'm gaming/watching alone much of the time...that is, when I'm not working on the board game I hope to publish next year. Would I forgo my gaming or anime completely for the sake of a relationship? Probably never, because they're a big part of my life and my foreseeable future. I also wouldn't want to start something with anyone who would try to make me drastically change such an integral part of what defines me.

I'm quite comfortable around people (non-gamers included) and holding conversations not remotely revolving around or related to my primary hobbies. As far as I am aware, I'm not socially inept, nor am I "preferring" gaming to a relationship. I'd just prefer to be with someone who shares the same passion for it that I do, and would want to help me succeed - just as I would want to support her aspirations.

I dont have disdain, more like concern, and he is a friend, but yea, I think he is addicted to the video gaming, plus maybe all the sugary soda he is ingesting is messing with his brain cells and the lack of sleep for staying up all night playing.
I'm not jumping on his case, just wondering why, I don't make it hard for him to socialize with me, I actually bring up the gaming, to make him feel comfortable, but then I want to talk about other things too. Movies, Books, etc... I never said I didn't think the dude is nice.

Video game addiction is fairly new and still being worked on with how to combat it but you could start poking around for information and maybe try to get him to see a professional about it...or see if he is willing to at the very least cut back on how much time he spends with it even if it is an hour just to gradually get him away from it.
