    I remember playing X-com and saying to my wife, never seen that kind of alien before, she goes "Maybe it wants to be your friend" Huh?? And if she asks me one more time if I've won Wow yet I may lose it.

    On the other hand, it is just as annoying when your wife is prepping a raid in Kara and tells you, "We've got enough DPS. But the backyard probably needs to be cleared of dog poop."

    hehehe. I think this post very well examplefies the difference between the sexes when it comes to the hobby of gaming. I'm a single guy, and I just keep quiet about my hobby when I date. I just can't tell a girl, 'I just conquered a the whole galaxy last night on SoaSE and I'm going to conquer your thighs tonight'.

    I don't think it's the difference between the sexes. I think it's analytical non-gamers attempting to understand.

    I may have found the world's worst game to attempt to explain to a non-gamer. My wife watched me playing Persona 3: FES for a while. After asking the very obvious questions ("Are they shooting themselves in the head?" "Why are you in school?", etc). I had to resort to "It's a strange Japanese thing".
