It is not happening. The most sophisticated game my wife has played is the Snoopy Street fair game on the iOS. There is nothing I can do to make her play any other game.

 

I do not understand this at all and makes me sad.

I love gaming and think it is a fantastic way to spend time with someone you care about. It is good for honing skills to that can be useful in every day life, like building up muscles in your mouse clicky finger, or figuring out who is tank and healer in any teamwork you participate in (not sure about the tank n spank part though).

I do try to convince my fellow women that gaming is one way to keep sane in life, but I usually do not get listened to.

Playing MUDs and MMOs since 1994.

I have the opposite reaction. While my initial thought of ROS was excellent and I called it even the best game of the last 2 years ...

I hardly play it since a few weeks and clocked in around 20 hours total with it.

I played Vanilla Diablo 3 around 1100 hours over 15 months time, but for some reason I don't feel the "urge" to play ROS at all.

In the back of my mind there is still the absence of any serious trading which kept me going in Vanilla D3 AND the fact you had these challenges by progressing through Hell, Inferno difficulties.

In ROS you just tune it down when you have trouble. I can find no longer the challenge to keep playing.

These days it is a little bit of WOW, 1 hour of Hearthstone and 4 to 5 small sessions of Farmville 2 on the iPad.

I miss the farming and selling of mats and gear in D3.

ROS clearly lacks trading mats and some lesser gear AND a fixed difficulty.

Ever since playing Farmville2 I think more than ever Blizzard is missing the new  wave. Even Hearthstone is much to much oriented to the geeks play and D3 ROS isn't satisfying without trading.

 

Hard to take you seriously when most of your game time is spent on Farmville....

Hi everyone,

I started playing 3 weeks ago. A friend told me to start , after the last update. I think i am addicted too(maybe a bit). Its hard when you have a full time job and a full time wife :)

Do you have full-time kids too? I am juggling job, wife, kids + D3 ... all my other video games are gathering dust (although i vouch to get back to Tomb Raider soon).

 

Not yet, but my woman is a tough one(lol)

You are my hero :)...Parents should have special priviledges in mmos

Lol nice.

well, everyone enjoys different entertainment. I watched tv with my wife, go restaurant hopping (great hobby), and also visit wineries (where i tastes wine, and she admire the scenary).

so there are plenty of stuff i do with my wife ... just not gaming.

Farmville 2 on the iPad is quite good. You should try it before judging. As it complies to every single iPad gaming needs.

In fact trading is quite good and farm "guilds" are greatly supported for such a casual game.

That player market is 10 times bigger than any present day Geek game even.

As stated: D3 should have kept with a Gold Auction House for the lesser goods and mats.

The game would have MUCH more replay value with mats trading. Blizzard went from one extreme to another and that never succeeds.

My bet is that they will include a new Gold AH in the next expansion for the basic good trading. (if they are smart, which I mostly doubt).

In fact the basic mats trading functioned perfectly, but their PR department took over and so they deleted every trading.

"Never succeeds"?

I will call selling 2.7M copies in a week, and getting 86 on metacritics succeeding. Now i understand you do not like it when they take AH away .. but they don't need to please you to succeed, do they?
