American Scottish tennis “star” Andy Murray recently broke up with his girlfriend of almost four years over video games. Sources close to the ex, the relatively un-notable Kim Sears, said that Murray was too busy playing video games to appreciate her.
Brad Gilbert, Murray’s former coach, has said in the past that Murray spends “seven hours a day” playing video games.
“[He] would spend all his time glued to them. In the end she just got fed up with it. She wanted more out of the relationship.”
Is now a bad time to sing the praises of the forgotten Playstation 2? The games are still good, but cheaper now. And if you don’t own an HDTV, they look and play just as well. Of course, my mother would give me the same speech before every dinner of hamburgers on white bread. Getting older can be so depressing sometimes. I’ll feel better after I beat up some hookers in a quick game of “Grand Theft Auto.” And by quick, I mean like “the rest of the day.” Not really. Maybe.
