Gamer's Valentine

Shoot! Quick quick, press '2', change to arrows and shoot the fella. 'Right Click', enter sniper mode and aim for her heart! [That is what gamers would advice if they were playing Virtual Cupid.]

14th of feb, Valentines day is every singles dreadful day and every couples worry day. Its a double edge sword. Dreadful single sitting alone in the cafe by the window watching thousands of loving couple pass by. Couples accompany their other half worrying that their effort may not be good enough to enter v-day mood.

In this post, I'll reveal 3.8 reasons why most hardcore gamers are single.

[1]
There is this pretty nifty function called SAVE/LOAD in most games. Gamers are perfectionist. If they suceed in a game, they'll save their progress. And if they fail, they only have to load the game and try again.
In a real relationship there is no such thing as a LOAD function. Whatever you say or do, helps you AUTOSAVE. If they succeed, good! If they fail, they probably have to play the game all over again. (And the game has to be a different game)

[2]
In every game, there is a cheat code of some sort. Even if there are no cheat codes, there are gamehacks like trainers and walkthrough. If a gamer got stuck in a game, all he has to do is go online and find the cheat codes.
Against someone when something bad happens in a real relationship, it'll be weird for gamers to hold the controller and go "Up down left right, Up down left right, A A B B"

[3]
Gamers can play more than 1 game at a time and not feel guilty about it.
In a real relationship, that'll be call cheating. Unlike reason no.2, This kind of cheating is bad. REAL Bad.

[3.8]
This time, I'll let my readers fill in the remaining 0.2 by leaving a witty comment.

you know what? i have tried to 'tackle' this one guy who is like a crazy gamer and i think you've basically hit the spot! gamers, some of them are really hard to get to know properly, they are always concentrating on their games =) in their world.... games is number 1... everything else is secondary.. its like drugs i think sometimes.. they get super addicted.. then they forget the world.. (hehehe, gamers out there, dont marah okay?) oh, until today still get him interested enough to leave his games to go out with me... so sad ah =(

Erm...excuse me ho.

That is wrong cheat code.

The correct one would be:

"Down down up up left left, B A B A"

Thats how pilots learn how to fly. Through virtual simulation. So, comparing the both is perfectly fine.
