I spent much of that time bouncing from CS to COD and also Gunz. Now as a female over 20, my parents understand my gaming habits. The fact is I don't need video games to bond with my parents as I already have a close relationship with them without needing to use another medium. The fact that I might have a close relationship with them could be because I'm an only child.

I would like to say though my reaction time has improved playing FPS. I'm at this point in my PC gaming career that I want to be heavily involved in playing more RTS.
now that's the kindaa talk i like to hear!!! i know a few girls who are mad COD players! (pretty f*****g good too)

I play COD for the most part. Right now, I'm playing Black Ops and hoping to participate in the Season 1 for CEVO for Black Ops.

my wife hates video games and i wouldnt have it any other way. I enjoy that its my free time to myself.

I'm sure she would get tired of my beating her in games all the time though anyway.
