First of all, I was hardcore into Eve from 2004-2006. My daughter was born in April of 2004. Her name is Evelyn. Insert your own take on that. I would never, ever admit to my wife that my beautiful little Nichole Kidman clone is named after an MMO.

Secondly, she's never been able to heads or tails of Eve (shooters and fantasy MMOs, no problem). Neither does she ooo and aah at the trailers like the males in my extended family do. However, she got caught at my desk while Eve was up and running one day (I was docked). She was stuck talking to her sister for about an hour and basically explored every button available. I try to imagine that experience through the eyes of someone who has zero idea what even a tenth of those terms mean. Later that day, though, she begrudgingly admitted that it was "pretty cool". I thought that was an opening to get her involved, but, it was not to be.

And last...my work life has always been night-based. Military, then medical chopper dispatch, then radio...all nighttime gigs. Now that I have a "grown up" job, my nights are free, but my internal clock is still fixed on owl time. I game when everyone else is in bed, so I don't get "the computer is my other girlfriend" accusation. Besides...everyone knows my other girlfriend is my table saw and router.

I'm a young kid and I love playing eve online but I keep it seperate from my family and my girl. If my dad played video games like u guys do I would find that a little creepy. I mean u find it cute to have ur sons/daughters quoting stuff from a video game but I think thats just sad and u find it funny when u say "wife aggro" or something similar but it's just creepy. Integrating video games into ur family life is kinda pathetic....


Nice, this from a kid who is indoors on the forums whining about ppl being creepy. It is interesting, like being in a room full of dorks and thinking you are the cool one. Get a clue "kid"Rolling Eyes

From Dad, when I explained the market to him: "Oh wow youre actually learning some Economics while playing; supply and demand and that stuff"

From mom: "I think youre addicted to this game, this is all you do. And tell those guys not swear!(when on teamspeak)" (Which I beg to differ because I am a full time college student and with my horrid schedule I usually only get to play for about 2 hours at night on a good day)

From friends: "Well that looks a shiny game. Id rather spend my money elsewhere though."

The girl that I am really interested in knows that I play and doesnt really care. We use to play another MMO together for couple years so shes knows about all that MMOish stuff. Ive yet to get her to play EVE, she says she doesnt want to get into another game right now, she needs to concentrate on her classes. But I will bring her over to the dark side eventually Twisted Evil

You go out to the pub have a few more drinks, dance really close, so close and sexy that you know EXACLY what you goona get when you get home.
You get out of the cab whit a red wood three in your pants sorting your ****s out ready like never before!!
You undress jump in bed face to face you both smiles as and you can see that this is goona be the best one EVER. She turns in bed, turn lights down and says "Lol podded" and falls asleep...

My girlfriend and I are both gamers. She played Eve with me for about 2 years and got bored waiting for Incarna to come out (she's really into RP). A handful of friends play Eve with me too. Although to quote some of the people I've failed at converting:

I try and coax my friend from UO to play Eve
"Isn't that the game where everyone else always has a bigger ship than you?"

I tell my friend who plays FFXI about my first ship loss
"/quit forever"

I tell the same friend about piracy in Eve, and how fun it can be YARRRR!!
"That game sounds like it's full of internet sociopaths."

My 4 year old son loves to play the games I do. He will help me mine by moving rocks from one box to the next :P Or play my second account in a mission firing missiles at people and watching explosions. The ui is too complicated for him to just roam free and play on his own like he can with games like Lord of the Rings.

The killer moment that had me laughing though was when in the bathtub he took his bath blocks and built a mining spaceship and told me he was mining rocks in space!

The 2 year old could care less about the game and the wife finds it completely ******ed and doesn't understand my obsession with it.

My gf understands it but thinks I'm completely nuts for playing so much. The full extent of her involvement consists of her laughing at me when my alliance boss is making fun of me and trying to get me killed by throwing things at me when I'm in the middle of a PvP op. I usually tell her my tank can't handle getting hit with another pillow and I'll pay the ransom for her to stop.

My wife HATES computer games, which is why I spend so much time playing them.
I've tried in vein to get my daughter to play EvE but she's hooked on WoW and Sims.
Her attitude is the typical "that's so boring".
My son however has a pilot on my account with a rifter and he loves flying around blowing things up.
However being seven he has trouble reading the mission info and often gets lost so we fleet up with my other account and I help him out, it's fun to blow up crap with your kid.
I think he'll be a terror in null sec once he gets a little older since he's not afraid to loose his ship since dad will build him another. ;)

(won't repost the link)





I'm in ur ship, killing your nubs?

Ex-wife (who has played two fantasy MMOs with me): "Looks boring"

Ex-girlfriend: "Are you killing your little space men again?"

9 year-old son: "This is too complicated. Why can't we go back to Dark Age of Camelot?"

4 year-old daughter, after hearing me talking in vent: "Can I talk to your friends on the computer too?"

My current girlfriend has NO interest whatsoever in video games, but it gives her time to do HER thing while I do mine. What a great woman.

brother and friends:
"get a titan and take over the universe yet?"

work:
"how's the Iceland game?" (sometimes they'll mistake it with New Zealand or Greenland.)
