Posted on March 18, 2008, Jonathan Yahoo Tells You How to Save Your Relationship from Games; Female Gamer Responds
Gracing the front page of Yahoo! News this morning was a little article listing seven tips for women to drag their man away from video games. Ironically, the article was written by a guy, whose suggestions mostly involved trickery and subversion. He advocated that women, for example: fake a power outage, dress up like video game characters, and use video games to inspire “nighttime activities.” I was all set to write up a whole editorial making fun of the article bit by bit, but Allison Boyer over at Binge Gaming beat me to the punch. In another twist of irony, there’s now another article on the internet saying why all those tips are useless, this time written by a girl. Probably the best advice for women who are having huge relationship problems because of video games though, which Boyer covers: just break up already.
