Girlfriends Against Video Games
from the missing-an-opportunity dept
A few years back a single friend of mine was talking about buying a Playstation, explaining that it was a decent substitute for a girlfriend in terms of both time and money commitment. He was joking, but soon after that Sony actually started a brief advertising campaign that suggested women buy their boyfriends a Playstation to keep them out of trouble -- making sure they were home playing video games rather than out. Perhaps the company should reintroduce that campaign, as Joystiq reports that a group of upset girlfriends at Kansas State University has started the group "Girlfriends Against Video Games" as a support group for women whose boyfriends spend way too much time gaming. Of course, there are some who might note that if the the guys are spending more time with video games than their girlfriends, then that relationship has other problems to deal with. Update: It's beginning to sound like this whole thing was just a big stunt to get some folks on MTV. Oh well.
