Co-Op versus Work
Like everyone of the planet who was not born with a silver spoon clamped squarely between their lips, a job was required for me to provide the basics; food, shelter, new games. Suddenly the hours of 9-5 where not reserved for napping and thinking about going to lectures, but things like spreadsheets and thinking about napping. Work was eating into my co-op gaming time. However, with the hours after work still open, things are not too bad – yet:

Co-Op versus Wife
Don’t get me wrong, I love my wife, but she doesn’t half get in the way of some quality gaming time; what with the paying attention to her and whatnot. I am lucky to have a partner who knew about my gaming when we met and is happy for me to play now. In fact, get the right game and she can be the ultimate co-op partner; always on hand to play. However, this is not the norm. There is no denying that after work it is not just 5 hours of fun gaming, but more likely a civilised meal and some sort of TV show that is not really my cup of tea. Get to about 10pm and the night opens up, but don’t I need sleep?
