It’s official. My wife is now the best gamer in the house. I don’t know when it happened, or if I even ever was the best gamer here, although she would have me believe that I was. She’s about the perfect companion. She’s tall, over 6’, likes gaming, is fun to be around, and is my best friend. I was playing Guitar Hero with her last night, and it was really no contest. As I sat on the couch, watching her shred my scores and my dignity, I realized that even as we play MMO games, she is better at them than I am.
Now, I will frequently have more knowledge about the game. That evidently does not translate into effectiveness. I gather that gaming parallels real life in this manner. Now, I do have my advantages. I’m hopelessly stubborn. This actually helps in some difficult gaming situations. She tends to be a little more easily bored, so she won’t stick to stuff as long as I will. This is often to her benefit.
The cool thing is, well the cool things are; I have a cool gamer as a best friend who looks good in her clothes and I get benefits, I’m OK with her being better at the games than me, and I have a duo partner in MMO just about whenever I want one.
I hope one day all of you end up with someone as cool as Bran, although I doubt that is possible. Most of all though, I hope that some day, if you figure out she’s better at gaming than you, you will be old enough to not only tolerate it, but appreciate it.
Keep your stick on the ice!
