I married wonderful woman almost 8 years ago now. The more I got to know her the more I loved. So as to try and keep this shorter, she's an awesome singer and musician(used to sing for Disney believe it or not), she grew up on a farm so dirt bike, ATV's and all the livestock are all things she enjoys to do. BUT, about 6 months into marriage, I found out she loves reading fantasy books which I thought was awesome. Many times on the weekends we would go out to a movie and dinner, but spend the rest of the time, me gaming and her laying on the couch reading, wonderful. Well, I switched to WoW about a year after it released convinced her to start playing (she started at WotLK and she really enjoyed it).
Sadly, about a month after Cata released she stopped playing. She just didn't like that expac, and I didn't either to be honest so I quit shortly after she did. I got into Rift for about 2 months. Tried to get her into it, she tried it, didn't like it stopped playing. I tried to get her into SWTOR, I loved it, she is not a Scifi person at all. I tried to get her into Tera, she couldn't stand how "unclothed" the females were but didn't mind me playing. To be honest, I missed gaming with her, a lot.
So I've been playing SWTOR, I really like it, but have been anxiously awaiting GW2. I played the 2nd closed beta event and knew I would enjoy it. It not having a sub made it even better because I could keep playing SWTOR whenever I wanted. So, I bought GW2 last night, and while I was downloading, my wife came over, bringing me coffee, asking what game I was downloading. I told her and proceeded to show her some videos and gameplay of it, screenshots, etc. She fell in love with the Artistic design.
So all this to say, GW2 has brought me wife and best friend back into gaming. I had a blast duo'ing with her in WotLK, missed it so much. So now, once the kids are in bed, we're at it again where we're both new to the game. She's loving it, I love it even more with her playing.
