Macleans on “Xbox widows”


This article about men deserting their wives and children for the warm embrace of polygonal battle gets trotted out every now and again, but it does have some basis in reality, unlike the “GTA made me kill for Satan” nonsense the media loves to regularly freebase.

I’m lucky, since my girlfriend is as much of a video game nerd as I am, and we’ve been happily blowing away zombies and headcrabs in Half LIfe 2 on her Xbox for the last couple of weeks. Whee!
