    DM man beats girlfriend over video game

    It started with a video game; Des Moines man arrested | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    '"Proctor said she became frustrated with Pettinger as he would not stop playing video games. Proctor said she stood in front of Pettinger, blocking his view of the screen. At that point Pettinger's video game character died and he became very angry.""

    Girlfriends are the reason they have a pause button, loser.

    Some games do, but if he was playing online it likely doesn't have a pause. But in any case you're right - this guy is a bona fide loser...

    You make an excellent point. If he was on a kill streak in COD, and was one away from releasing the dogs, then this story takes on an entirely different light

    Re: DM man beats girlfriend over video game

    reminds me of that joke about the girl with two black eyes....

    fyi, for the morality police out there, I don't condone beating your woman. Shaking her...maybe. But not beating her.

    She'll get the back of my hand if she steps in front of my Grand Theft Auto gaming addiction.






    note: redrocker does not recommend beating women over stupid video game.

    Re: DM man beats girlfriend over video game

    I can see where the guy's coming from, though. I'll be playing Guild Wars and in the middle of a mission my wife will ask me to check in on our crying daughter to see if she's ok/change her diaper. If I'm just doing quests, not a big deal as I can quit out of those anytime I want. If I'm doing missions, that's another story as I'm usually playing with others online and it is highly frowned upon to leave teammates in a lurch. That being said, I'm usually able to prevent myself from smacking my wife around when she interrupts me in the middle of a game.

    Re: DM man beats girlfriend over video game

    Reminds me of my former roommates
    (no he didn't hit her, but his video game playing certainly annoyed her)

    Also reminds me of a funny YouTube video (well audio)... I don't have the link here and it's probably not appropriate for the site... but a girl calls her boyfriend up wanting to uh, do things... but he's too busy playing Counter Strike. Offers to let her ride in the Roflcopter... she gets really mad, etc. Ammusing in a sad way


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    What is this "not appropriate" concept you talk about? Never heard of it.

    Reading the comments below the story, they seem to echo what I was about to post, that now he might be playing some prison games of his own.

    I know you're the type of guy who gets mad when he has to leave a "mission" to go check on his daughter.
