That’s so sweet of you…Granted she didn’t even know you were in the room, but it’s the thought that counts.
Personally, I don’t know these sentiments. My wife is not a gamer. Granted there are games she enjoys playing, but there are not any games that she actively seeks out to play. So my best parallel to the comic is her taking a bath or going on the internet while I game. Not because of solidarity, but mainly because she’d rather do that than watch me play.
Now my daughters on the other hand are becoming gamers. They do enjoy watching me play video games and they do play games on the computer, as well. For example, I was playing Trine 2 on the Playstation 3 a couple weekends ago and hit a point I was having trouble getting past. My oldest, a five year old, told me what I needed to do to get past it. True moment of pride for me as a father. While in the same vein, my youngest has asked me to play Final Fantasy IX because she would rather watch me level grind than watch Yo Gabba Gabba! Do you understand how big that is? That’s like saying a drug addict would rather have water than crack…Or something like that. Needless to say, my girls are growing up correctly.
