Ok, so I'll make this the last gaming post for a while. I recently saw this Feministe article on feminism and gaming, with a focus on one particular Salon.com article. The Salon article describes (superficially) the writer's coping mechanisms when her husband was gaming a bit more than she'd like.
The Feministe article does a good job of treating the article in the right way, I think, but the whole thing did fondly remind me of my own couple gaming experience. One ex-girlfriend and I used to play together. I was mostly the one who was actually at the computer, but she was there making suggestions and we collaborated on what to do next in the game. It was fun, and I've still got a soft spot for Clive Barker's Undying.
