So I admit that I casually like to play computer games/console games on my free time. I of course, do not play that frequently, and only play when I have plenty of free time.
To make a long story short, my Taiwanese GF really dislikes it when I play video games. She thinks it’s a waste of time.
Anyhow, I don’t mind never playing computer games if she strongly wants me to do so. My only question is why do Taiwanese girls strongly dislike it if guys play video games?
Is it because of the stereotypes of a frequent wang ka person in Taiwan? Is it because it’s a waste of time? Or maybe people that play video games seem very immature.
Lastly, I like to point out to her that watching TV (She watches TV all the time, A LOT of time) is just as bad as playing video games, both activities waste time, although they are both relaxing activities. She counters this by saying that TV (and this is Taiwanese TV we are talking about here) allows you to be informed of current news and that you can also learn stuff by watching the Discovery channel… That’s ridiculous, considering how the news report in Taiwan. As for the Discovery channel, I don’t think she ever would watch that.
Anyways, I just want to hear some thoughts.
Lastly, I live in America and she is currently in Taiwan. In the United States, for us Undergraduates, a bunch of us University students like to mess around on Halo 3 or the Nintendo WII. In the United States, playing video games once in a while doesn’t really mean much. Perhaps it’s just a difference in culture?
