I definitely need more gamer friends.
I used to be pretty good at Halo 1, but FPS I'm just terrible at.

Yup, I play board games and card games. Love me some board games!

I never could get into Elder Scrolls games, but I was playing the Final Fantasies when they were super popular and some Zelda games.

I've played all the Zelda's except for Skyward Sword (haven't bought it yet) and Ocarina of Time is still one of my favorite games of all time. Still working on Skyrim and just finished Assassin's Creed II... and now I really want to play FFVII.

Me and my friends are the dorks that bring board games to our favorite dive bars...I think Saturday night is unofficial game night out back. This week...another round of Settlers of Catan!

I'm a big Link to the Past fan, but I haven't beaten all the games. I couldn't get through the Water Temple on Ocarina of Time lol.

FFVII is a good game. I like FFIII though. But FFIII had a HUGE end game, where as FFVII only had a hand full of things you could do at the end of the game. And there were like..15 characters in FFIII..

Settlers of Catan is a good game. Find Pandemic If you want a Players Vs. the game, game.

Also, I highly Recommend Betrayal at the House on the Hill. Super fun game, lots of variances in it with different hauntings.

If you guys like Deck building games, look for Dominion. Really fun, and all these games take little time to set up and play.

Yes, it sure is. Tiresome discussion, this.

That profile isn't really funny but most women aren't either so that may actually work. A lot of women think Chelsea Handler is funny and this is only marginally less funny lol

These were pretty good, especially the first half but the one I highlighted above actually did make me laugh out loud. That's pretty funny right there. I'm probably going to steal it.

"I want a down to earth girl" YAWN.

"I am not in to gold diggers" they claim, as they stand in front of an expensive yacht, car or home in their profile pic. Really? What is the point in doing that if you aren't looking for a gold digger? That is exactly what you're going to attract.

Every last one of them is "athletic". Liars.

"I like walks on the beach and romantic dinners." Oh JFC, I'm going to vomit. Could you be ANY more boring?!

I could go on but I do want to admit that many, many years ago I did look at some dating profiles and actually responded to one. He got me with his very first line:

"I am bi-pedal."

I ended up meeting him, we had a BLAST! It could have been something awesome except he was in CA and I was in WA. But he was, by far, one of the best dates I've ever had. Sometimes I still think, "Man...what if?"

It's usually pretty easy to weed out the players because their profiles read like a cheesy romance novel. It's like they think of a stereotypical woman and just put down what he thinks she'll want instead of actually writing something from the heart which would require creativity and thought and we can't have that!!

Yet you had to post about it....it was THAT tiresome. I know when I am bored or uninterested in something I read, the first thing I do is post about it. Not ignore it or forget about it...

Very nice. I can see most guys saying they're "athletic" build that aren't. What else are they going to say? No guy wants to be skinny or fat, every guy wants to think he has muscle, lol!

I really don't know what bi-pedal means, what did that guy mean? That is funny though, thanks for sharing that!
