  • No thank goodness. He is not a gamer nor a sports watcher.

  • No! He bought a Wii for me for Christmas and he hates video games, so I end up playing it by myself. I'd LOVE for him to enjoy playing it!

  • Getting nauseous and/or dizzy when watching video games, TV, or movies can be a sign that something is wrong. Something as simple as needing glasses (or a new prescription) to something more serious. Have you ever been checked out for that?

    DH is a gamer. Everything from simple games like multiplayer chess (on the PC) to Multiplayer FPS (First person Shooter) games. He could literally spend all day gaming if it were left up to him. When we first started hanging out/dating that's literally all he did while he was laid off. (Which is when we met. He gets laid off every year around the same time) He'd only get up to eat and use the bathroom. He loves computers, computer games, and is generally just an all around geek. That WAS what attracted me to him, but sometimes I really wish he weren't that serious of a gamer. Though he has become less of one since we got married and had kids.

    I love video games too, just not as much

  • Oh yeah, mine is very much into the computer and computer games..... it used to really bother me but now I am ok with it as I have my own computer and my own hobbies and interests.

  • I get that motion sick feeling too sometimes. I don't do well in cars, airplanes or sailboats. LOL. Anyway... Yes my DH is a big WOW guy (world of warcraft). He also has a ps3 and the wii is mine.

  • The actual movements of the game, like how it turns 360 degrees and the constant moving and turning makes me dizzy........and shortly after I get nauseous.......I can play anything with a sedentary background, but when the scenery moves and the character moves and turns it just throws off my equillibrium..... I don't mind it so much he wont play unless I'm busy doing something else...I'm just surprised he could literally spend the entire day playing

  • Right there with you =) My fiance is a hardcore Xbox 360 gamer. However I find a few games fun and occasionally join him =)

  • He's downstairs playing Call of Duty as we speak. I usually don't mind it, but when I have to go to bed alone 3-4 nights a week and he can't get his butt outta bed in the morning to help me with the kids cause he's up to all hours of the night playing games, it sucks.

  • I also get motion sickness when he plays first player shooters. We have 3 Xboxes, so I can have one to watch Netflix on. He loves his games, but he doesnt' watch sports, and I'm thankful for that.
