OK guys, so I'm starting to execute my long term plan to get my GF to become a gamer. I've been scheming and plotting for a long time now, and it will take preparations worthy of a level 2 party taking on Firkraag!
Step one was to find out if/what games she ever played in the past. Success! I found out a couple of years ago, after taking up the subject numerous times, that she played alot of need for speed underground back in the day.
Step two: Listen to the soundtrack from the game over the course of 4 years. Especially when we have had something to drink and was starting to get a bit nostalgic.
Step three: get rid of my old stationary computer, which was a big, bulky and noisy piece of a monstrosity which she would never ever play on due to aesthetic reasons.
Step four: Get a cute, lean and fast gaming laptop.
Step five: Get NFSU and start to play, crank up the music.. then wait for it.. waaaaait for it.... waaaaaaaiiiiiiiiit foooor iiit!
Step six: Girlfriend comes into the room asking; "what the hell are you playing, is that.. ?"
Step seven: bask in the glory of success!
Here's where I am at currently. The following weeks and months I will take it slow and steady. My next step is to get her to boot up the comp and play for herself once without me.
I'm prolly borderline douchebag for doing this, but she's trying to get me to start dancing with her! So my promise to myself, to her (though I won't say anything yet) and to this community is to start dancing in class with her if my scheming bears fruit!
Wish me luck, friends!
