Gamer Boyfriends by Shira-chan Gamer Boyfriends by Shira-chan
I just felt the need to correct certain stereotypes the internet (specifically gaming-based webcomics) is determined to perpetuate.

Just keep in mind, everyone: gamers are still boys. Boys like boobs more than they like capping an imaginary digital character in the head.

Edit: Please keep in mind that this is a COMIC. It's supposed to be FUNNY, and is not meant to be taken LITERALLY. I'm just drawing from personal experience here, I'm not saying this applies to everyone. Chill out and enjoy the joke. Thank you for withholding your snark.

It's opposite with my boyfriend and I. Like, "damnit man I'm trying to play Walking Dead."

Hah, agreed. My BF and I both game, but if I ever really want him to come hang out with me, he'll put the game down and come hang out with me. I kinda feel super sad for the people that say they'd put a video game before their SOs. It's no different than saying your car is more important than your SO, or working out or going to the game is more important. Prioritizing *things* and *activities* before your special *people* just strikes me as kinda selfish and lonely, I guess.

I am just going to necro this picture. I play world of warcraft , and other online games. I don't care what im about to do, i could be in a core raid team, boobs > game. my girl comes first. though it helps that she also plays games :)

seriously though, the comments who say their bfs ditched them for a raid is just sad. :( those guys need to learn its jsut a game. My only exception to this is if they are MLG level pvpers, since they make money from that. They should still make time for their gf or bf. :/

Wife: "Happy Birthday! I'll be your"slave" for 3 days."

Me(typing in guild): "Yeah, Raid leader? I won't be raiding this week."

This is pretty funny. My boyfriend is a big gamer but he would totally put down his controller for me. 
I wouldn't even have to ask.

It's their little Proving Ground where they go to let loose excessive 'roid rage. (Typical boy hormones, that is.)

Also, some people are struck by the Sunk Cost Fallacy.

There's piracy anywhere you go. It's just on sale. =P

Plus, most people here are addicted to online games. Internet cafe is the new cash cow in this day and age.

Exactly! The internet always portrays gamers as awkward, socially-inept shut-ins, which just isn't the case - for the most part. I have totally met people who fit that stereotype. But I think that there are far more who are just normal guys. The stereotype is just funnier to the internet :)

I'll break of gaming for snuggling with my lady, if sex is mentioned, i'm out of my chair and next to here in about .5 seconds. i'm told seeing an ogre move at the speed of sound is terrifying.

Saying that "boys like boobs more than they like capping an imaginary digital character" is also a stereotype that you are promoting.. but yeah, in reality MOST boys would prefer intercourse, but so would most girls.

Well, the ones addicted to games, at least. Either that, or they're beating each other over the head with 2x4s for loose change... So they could buy more games.

The rest are either working full-time or too old to care.

Its sad to say, But its the other way around for most. I'm a gamer girl and I even ignore my husband for games to >_<
Then again, there's -your- time and -us- time. Its kind'a pointless trying to get involved in your partners -them- time.

Haha I think the gamer stereotype is hilarious. Very few, if any of us are that socially retarded, but the internet seems to think much less of us. Glad to see someone's got it straight.

internet's a shit hole of a place when a gamer goes to a web site with non-gamers.
At most people are nice, but then you meet the jack-ass, stupid and asinine morons that follow just about every stereotype there is in the world -_______-
This on the other hand is a perfect thing I can show someone if they threw this insult at me though :XD:

Excellent work! Just the right amount of implication without too much detail and enough irony to make this a really well-done comic, with the added bonus of being (largely) true to reality. Kudos.
