So you have a girlfriend but you also like to play games. What if we told you could combine the two? Here are five ways to get your girlfriend into gaming.
5. Make a trade
In the initial stages of trying to get her to play video games, you might have to compromise. Offer to take her out to dinner or watch one of her favorite romantic comedies in exchange. And recognize that she probably doesn't want to play for eight hours at a time. At least not at first.
4. Start with easy co-op games
You can slowly introduce her into the world of gaming with some easy co-op games. Play some of the Lego games together or fire up New Super Mario Bros. It might be boring for you but remember this is only a gateway drug to bigger better games.
3. Pick out games with a good story
Start playing games with a good story in front of your girlfriend and she'll be hooked before you know it. The Walking Dead and Heavy Rain are great examples of games with an exciting story line. Before you know it she'll be the one saying 'don't you want to play your game tonight?'
2. Present it as quality time
Remind your girlfriend that if you both play video games, you'll be able to spend even more quality time together. However, be aware that it will only count as quality time if she actually does enjoy it, so try not to force an argument about this.
1. Have fun when you play with her
If you make it a good time she will enjoy it, even if she's not that into games. Crack jokes, make her laugh and focus primarily on spending time with her, not on winning the game at hand. This is easily the best way to turn your girlfriend into a gamer. Good luck guys!

My girlfriend used to play games with her dad when she was young and feels like she sucks to bad at them to get back into them id really like to try to find out what games would be easy yet engaging because i definitely see potiental for this as a joined hobby even if it only does become a minor one granted she does play games with me but i want her to feel acomplished instead of like shes bad any suggestions *RUN-ON SENTENCE*
Also we are basically alike in every other way so this would be a really great addition :)
Problem with my gf is that she only sort of likes "watching" them... never joining them. Or at least EXTREMELY picky. Pretty much only likes retro crap. Not very open minded. In the past she watched her brothers play FF7, yet wasn't even excited in the least that they were remaking it. Stupidly enough, said that someone else should die in the game this time... because you know... feminist reasons...
Those tips didn't really work to get my boyfriend into gaming. He still only saw it as a childish (I showed him Dragon Age, he still thought gaming was for little kids only...) and absolutely terrible and boring way to waste time. Broke up with him after he wanted me to waste about all of my own precious spare time on doing his own hobbies together with him. Gaming is definitely more important and fun than this relationship.
Damn right. She's one to stay up till 8Am. I bet every guy games in his underwear. When she's like that. I be like..... My charecter will be sitting while she's gets murders by 3 HA (Planetside 2) Im running into walls.. Watching her. Her half naked self. Honestly, she likes to go bra-Less... Could you blame me?
Plus, waking up, to have sex, then to game. Is every guys dream. Especially when you work 5 days a week from 9am to 6pm. Weekends be like AHHHHHHHHHH. But really, this world needs more gamer girls. Mix it up. She kicked my ass in PS2. It makes for great... Like if she wins.. She gets what ever part of me she wants. It's the other way around for me. So it's great to have a girl gamer.
+Binweevils Deluxe the thing about games that people dont understand is that it's a medium that has the most potential for just about anything you want, and if you look for more than 2 seconds you'll see that gamers want everyone to play so the interest is there to make a unique interesting game
My fiancee wasn't really into gaming (she still really isn't). But she really likes fantasy books, so I started her out with Neverwinter Nights 2, and she's hooked. The best part? She hasn't even gotten to Mask of the Betrayer (The expansion for NWN2 that most consider to be better than the original campaign). The biggest thing, to me, is finding something that she is actually interested in. She's into fantasy? Find a fantasy game. She's only into the character customizing screen? Find one with a REALLY in depth character customizing screen. She likes musicals? Find a game based on musicals. You can work them into games that you like eventually. But their first has to be something that they ABSOLUTELY LOVE. Most of us remember our first games. They should, too.
I find the weirdest thing is : My girlfriend likes games, plays skyrim on her own time, but when she's with me, She much prefers watching, I assume she likes the fact that I cuddle with her, Not that I'm complaining, I'm just saying it's kinda weird.I'm happy and she's happy, that's what matters.
I see a lot a butthurt bitches... Here's one being honest: I'd like to get into gaming but I don't know where to start. I'm very interested in true crime-shit. Is there some type of game that has a story line along those lines? P.S: Looking for actual help.
Well I think you should definitely try playing Heavy Rain, it's a more story oriented game so it's not too difficult to play and it revolves around the mystery of a serial killer and his effects on the lives of four protagonists. Another game to look into is Deadly Premonition now this game has a bunch of flaws but the story is amazing and worth your attention at some point. Ghost Trick Phantom Detective, Beyond Two Souls and Persona 4 are some other games that you might be into. Hope this helps!
Hey here's some fun thing to do.
If you too are a girl that is not into gaming and reading this title feeling offended, just go to your mom, ask her were the bleach is and just drink the whole lot. :)
Because if I'm not into gaming, thats for a reason and this title doesn't offend me.
If I want to tho, but doesn't do it, well thats my own god damn fault, nothing is stopping me.
If you are a girl who is into gaming reading this, well you gota understand the following -> This Video has nothing to do with you, the moment you decide to comment either way to tell us why you are the CoD / WoW / bf3,4,5,6/ master be prepaired to get shit on.
Of yourse this counts the same to males but because the video title and obvious freakin reasons I adressed the female part.
I highly encourage everyone to comment on this if you actualy do not agree to show all the people passing by your retarded life choice.
Go ahead. :)
if i wasn't a gamer girl i would have never met the love of my life <3
we both in love with the same games which makes it even better and we kick each others ass all the time when go against each other and make an almost unbeatable team when we go against others <3 my boyfriend ain't gotta worry about getting me into games xD
Good questions we should be asking is WHY DO GUYS tend to be more addicted to Video games or PC games than girls? The girls need to Win/Conquer/Competitive gene sit in safe mode more than the guys? Would be a fascinating study of the mental working order of the gender, right side of the brain vs left side. If the girl and guy would reduce down to mice in a cage, the guy mice would be ALL over the cheese running through the mazes, the girl mice would probably sit and watch and die out of boredom.
Yeah I knew when clicking on this video the type of comments there would be.... Came here for a quick laugh but got kinda frustrated reading the comments just so y'all know there are more girls who play games than you think, and there are just as many guys who don't play video games. In fact, until about a year ago I couldn't believe there was anyone ignorant enough to believe that "gamer girls" was such a rare "species"!
+Zodaxa Rohalxo Well, boys are mostly into gaming but try the options in the video, only instead of "romantic comedies she likes", maybe do something like "play a bit of the sport he likes" or go out and watch what movies he wants or something like that.
Just get your girlfriend into some peaceful mmorpg like hmm... aion, it has wings and it's really fun to play with other people, doing some quests, getting new skills and that stuff, but it can get boring overtime if you are playing it alone, even if there are many people running around so play with her :) I think that some mmorpg it's a good start.
By the way good video. This comment it's kinda just my opinion but i rly liked the video anyway.
1. This bullshit list is obviously made by a guy, My GF finds it insulting. you don't want your GF in games, because you want to play them. You want her to camp Facebook and leave you alone. She'll find her own games.
2. Don't belittle her intellect
3. Walking Dead and Heavy Rain are terrible examples. Try traditional RPG's or time management gaming.
4. Present it as alone time. When you're really annoying her point out how games give you that seclusion from You that she needs.
5. Get Angry every time she loses. She will stop playing. Make things highly competitive, or you will never again have that system all to yourself. and you like playin games, right?
