    Yes, it is definitely a turn off. I wouldn't date or get involved with a woman that played video games at all.

    In this day and age it's basically like asking 'is watching films and reading books a turn off?'

    Before anyone goes on a rant about books or film being of higher value to personal development than video games...Consider what a video game entails in relation to passive mediums.

    I'm pretty sure over doing anything is a turn off whilst being in a relationship.

    Over-studying for example should be equally as bad in the sense its not really bonding on he relationship.

    Nope, although it does depend on how obsessed they're with it. I seem to attract gamers (from casual to pro) some of whom literally won't talk about anything except for their game, all day everyday - huge turn off. But others with a more balanced life were great

    I had a gaming addiction a long time ago. I also had a girlfriend so I would often lie about my whereabouts and make out like I was outside doing something fun but really I was indoors playing games all night.

    Certainly hope not as I've been playing games for a large majority of my life, for me they are my go to form of entertainment rather than films, TV shows and books (not that I don't watch/read at all, just not as much as video games) and I certainly don't see that as a bad thing. I also wouldn't see it as an unattractive trait in another person unless that person spent every waking minute of their life playing video games outside of school/work.

    Not sure, I find anyone that considers themselves a gamer a bit boring, because I don't play many games. Only Fifa with mates sometimes. Maybe that's unfair though.
