My wife and I love the retron 5

It's so great! It lets me play all the classics AND it doesn't fill the house up with clutter!

I can keep being the bad ass gamer I am and she can be the lady of the house :D

My wife plays more than I do. She's home with our two year old all day.

She plays some ms. pacman adventure game on n64 on my d20f1u. That and non-/vr/ Mario and Just Dance games.

I went through a lot of time, trouble and money getting my retro station set up the way I want and I don't ever get to play anything.

Eh, another year and she won't be able to get our son and me away from the vidja.

Only one of my exes played vidya, but we were together for such a short time that we never got to play anything together. I think he was into retro games too. Shame.

It would be nice to have someone to co-op on Gauntlet or Smash with, but the only friend I have who's into gaming has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in retro. He won't even go as far back as PS2.

My GF is a huge Star Wars nerd, thats why this christmas she's getting Shadows of the Empire from me, since she recently set up her N64 again.
She used to own a lot of consoles, only the 64 survived though, her family is kinda fucked up, her mom and her sisters lost her PS1, Gamecube and XBox along with most games during several relocations.

Who are these wives that make husbands get rid of their stuff? Don't men want their houses organized also? What the fuck is up with these threads, I'm married and don't understand this shit at all. To answer OPs question, we play point and clicks together mostly because I'm better at games and she's really competitive.

Ironically I came here to say almost exactly this. She plays a bit of Puzzle Fighter as well, but most of the stuff we play together is modern.

>> No.2833983


I run into this as well. Girlfriend sounds odd since we've been together almost a decade and living together half of that. But we also have no plans of getting legally married, so wife also seems odd.

I usually just say partner as well. If someone gets confused about gender or thinks I'm gay then whatever. I doubt it actually happens all that much though.

>> No.2834004

my friend and his wife does. Well its more of she got into it when they dated because she wanted to be involve (he had come back from Iraq at that point in time). They look like the couple in OP pic... kinda creepy now that i think about it. wow.

they have a baby boy now and he dresses him in retro gamer T's.

look buddy, all I am saying is that if you talk to anyone that doesn't browse tumblr 5 hours a day they're gonna think you're gay when you say "my partner and I"
it causes more confusion than just saying "my girlfriend," so why the fuck do you insist on using it? To fit your own little idea of what your relationship is like when the other person has no idea and gives zero fucks?

I'm glad to have friends that play retro games and new games I usually focus more on the retro while they play more modern stuff. It's a good mix and I usually find some weird obscure thing we can play like Psychic Killer Taromaru or Custom Robo 64. Though im getting interested in more 6th gen stuff since I had the chance to play it growing up.

>> No.2834714

I used to be with someone who was way into the snes final fantasy games, n64 along with current consoles.
Now with the person i'm dating I'm lucky to get her to play mario with me, which she likes. (though she seemed to like neo geo league bowling).

It's fine, I prefer to play viddy by myself late at night, or with friends.

My girlfriend will play if I ask and she likes a shit ton of stuff from her childhood. She also doesn't give a damn if I collect either. She collects her own things and I collect my own. Anyone who has someone who's not approving of it isn't worth being with.

>> No.2835058

I vary all the time, jumping decades for whatever I'm into at the moment. I just stopped caring about being hip on new trends at some point in the past few years. Probably because I find less and less interesting in new releases, and they're more expensive than buying old stuff (most of the time).

I did recently find out about N64DD working on everdrive 64, so whenever my one buddy finishes finals we're gonna have to get drunk and build stupid tracks to drive on.
