    So, in case anyone is wondering why videogamers get a bad rap, this is it. Bookmark this page for future reference.

    "Don't try and tell me your weren't staring at Lara Croft! You're such a jerk! I'm shutting down for the night and don't you even think about touching that reset button" :D

    I for one know that I could not be faithful to just one video game for the rest of my life.

    Am I really a therapist? Yep, a bona fide Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. In my current job I work with foster families and on the side I do private practice counseling. Does that surprise you?

    No. It's just funny. I've been trying to find a family/marriage/relationship counselor for months. I found one here in town finally about two weeks ago.

    If this is bad for your business as a marriage counsellor, have you considered sex therapist/counsellor? There may be a rise in demand soon.

    This opens up a whole new area of relationship counselling for you!

    "Doctor, she won't let me get to level 3"

    "Doctor he keeps trying every night, but he just can't make the jump to the end-boss platform. It's like he doesn't know what he's doing."

    "Doctor, I feel we're just stuck in a rut. It's like we're playing games with each other."

    No kidding.

    This person (I would say couple, but...) is out for attention. <-- Stating the obvious mind you. :)

    Snort.

    What happens if he gets tired of the game?

    Guess we'll see the first divorce of this type as well.

    Snort. Yes, a whole new era in the counseling game. :)

    Surely it's a publicity stunt by the developers/publishers?

    I hope it's a publicity stunt by the developers/publishers!

    What is sad, is this is probably the most normal relationship he's had since he left the trailer park behind.

    That's one thing that I've never seen in Japan, is a trailer park.

    Although, I've lived in a few during my lifetime. :)
