Well, it's a poll. Fairly explanatory. Regardless of your choice, please explain it.

Remember that "invention" thread and I said I'd have every monitor installed with a secret fist in the monitor that would shatter it to pieces when it flew out and knocked the kid in the face?

...Here's me wishing I patented it just a bit earlier before you bought your monitor.

If I'm in the middle of a game, I'll always ditch it, unless it's rly important, but nothing rly comes to mind for important.

But if I got something planned in-game first, I'll always take that. Not like it takes very long anyways.

I chose other: Explanation:

If need be, I'd take a sledgehammer to my comp screen. Of course, I would stop whatever imaginary game I was doing and talk to the girl and set up a date or place to just hang out. Games can wait.

If it was a scrim? Fuck, I'd play in the scrim. But if I was just playing for fun, I'd leave the computer and go.

I'd make plans with the guy... Maybe make the plans for about an hour or so later so that I could finish off what I was doing, but if they wanted to hang out straight away, I'd choose them over the game. But I mean, most guys I end up dating are gamers anyway, so soon the dates will turn from movies/hang outs to gng to the lan cafe or lanning it up at home anyway icon_wink.gif worth it to go through the other bs to get to that icon_biggrin.gif

why didnt you add a "go hang out with said person" option instead of of simply 'other'. Its not really that weird for a gamer to give up his games to hang out with real people icon_neutral.gif

Man... were the "gaming" options actually serious?
Like... come on. You have to choose from your bodies natural urge to reproduce (sorry, just being frank here) or your bodies addiction to video games. The urge to reproduce, unless you're like... under 14, should win out. If not... well then. GL HF dude. You can give me the girl's number...

FFS people playing games should be something you do whiel your GF is sleeping.

and for the fucking record she better not be sleeping because you're playing games, or you won't have a GF for much longer (unless shes retarded).

Sure, given the choice I'd chose RL over gaming any day. Shame I don't have that choice.

First one I'd just leave the game. Second one, if I've had it scheduled for a long time I would say I already had plans, but I'd tell her I can meet later or something.

I would say that judging from some of these answers he's quite necassary on these forums. Balance and realism are grand things.

Of course i'd give up the scrim / raid / whatever to go hang out with my GF. Really, anyone who puts a game infront of RL is a loser.
