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.

Thanks! I hadn't realized it had popped back up on reddit again. Every few months someone thinks they're clever and found it for the first time and post it on reddit all over again XD

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.

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.

Hah, I'm kinda the same way too! If I'm playing video games and my boyfriend wants some "me" time, I generally ignore him and keep playing my game! XD

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.

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 :)

XD I don't even have to ask my boyfriend if he wants to make out. I just have to look at him in a certain way, and he'll either pause or shut down whatever game he's playing and~ ... :iconblushplz: heh, yeah.

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.

Unfortunately, my girlfriend had to endure the stereo type from her ex. He'd be playing WoW, and not see her prancing around in skimpy underwear. Good news for me though, I like her in skimpy undies. And I figure, "Eh, I'll rez later."

Haha, exactly! XD If you fail in WoW, you can always get your body back later. If you fail with your girlfriend, odds are you're not getting her back! :D

You know, this showed up on Reddit and 9Gag, and I was amazed at how many guys were trying to defend the stereotype, and justify ignoring their girlfriends for the sake of their video games. Kinda sad, really. Good to know there are actually some other good ones out there!

Well yeah... I mean I love my games and all, but there's time for fun, and then there's time for FUN. And those guys need to know if they don't want a girlfriend around, there are plenty of guys like me who will make them happy. :)
