Hubby obsessed with video game

My husband has always played video games since I met him but ever since he bought Destiny 2 where you can play with other online players he is obsessed. He leaves for work around 8am and gets home around 4:15pm. I work from home for a call center and I have to clock in at 4:30pm. We have a 6 year old in Kindergarten and a 2 year old. He eats dinner with them at 4:30pm and them tells them to play in their rooms because he wants to play his video game Destiny 2. He ends up playing every night from 5pm until 1am. He is 33 years old by the way. I have nagged, complained and he says sorry but continues. Then we had a talk and agreed upon that after dinner he would play with our kids or watch a movie with them And when I come out of my office at 9pm for lunch him and I would watch something. Then after my lunch until 1am he would play. On my two days off he would spend the entire night with me. But in my nights off he has to mention something about the game. We just once again had a talk and he agreed he would not mention his game on my nights off. Now he spent time with us till I went to work at 4:30 and jumped on the game at 7:15 and played through my lunch. He just is putting this game above me. I know all guys have hobbies and his keeps him in the house but he has only been like this with this game because it is with other online guys. I have been crying about this, shown anger and nothing works. Then he has the balls to say to me “ my hobby keeps me at home and ever since I got that game you have b****

He’s a gamer. He was playing video games when you met. I’m not sure there is anything you can do.

It sounds like he is trying to make some changes with this game playing. Continue to talk to him about your needs, but you might need to make some compromises. Be patient. He sounds like a good guy.

Sounds like he is having fun. Why not sit with him whike he plays??? Also as long as he is taking care of your kids then I would be okay with it. If he was not working to play it or not spending time with the kids then that would suck. Maybe this is his only way to unwind. You married a gamer. This is the way they are when they get a new and exciting game. He will most likely leave it be soon. Chill out on him unless he stops working and caring for thr kids. You sound a little selfish. I would enjoy the me time if I were you.

He's clearly addicted and needs help.
