I'm really good friends with a girl named Helen. She moved into my school district in third grade, and from day one, she and I have always been really good friends. Y'know, the kind of friends where if something is wrong, they're the first ones you tell, and when the Science teacher says partner up, they're the first one you choose. That all has been fine and dandy. She and I used to hang out a lot, too. It seemed like every weekend, she was over at my house or I was over at hers. When school started last year, she made new friends. I did, too. So, gradually, we stopped talking as much, we stopped hanging out of much. Life and other things basically started coming between us.

Now that the summer has come around, I don't have a lot to do. The majority of my other friends have jobs, are out of town, or are never home. Which is understandable. Helen, however, does not have a job. She goes out of town to Arkansas for two weeks. She is always at home. Which is about the same scenario for me.

I have made a few attempts this summer to get together and do things with her. As in, I've invited her to several concerts. I even offered to buy her ticket. She said no. I've invited her to go to the movies, and again offered to pay for her. She said no. Even just random hanging out and shooting the shit at the coffee shop, she has declined.

All for one fucking reason: she'd rather stay home and play her Playstation.

This is making me want to gouge my eyes out. Don't get me wrong, though. I enjoy sitting in front of my TV playing video games as much as the next person. However, when I get the opportunity to leave the house, I TAKE IT. We live in a small farmer's town (population 5000, or somewhere near that number), and there isn't much to do around here.

Every time I call her, she's too busy to talk because she's playing her Playstation. Every single half assed reason she tries to come up with always ends up being playing her Playstation.

As her nine year old brother put it, "She'd choose videogames over breathing." So, it's making me wonder. Would she choose vidoegames over her best friend (which is seeming to be the case right now)?

It's making me want to choke her.

Well... I scanned over this and thought to myself, "Sounds like something any average gamer would do. Get over it." So I read it in more detail, and it seems like a lost cause to me o__o;; However, if you really want to get her back, you may just have to go over there yourself and talk to her or something... I guess >>;; And if she just picks up the PlayStation controller again, shove it down her throat or something.

I like the idea of shoving the controller down her throat. I feel like doing that regardless of what happens.. but I'll try talking to her. I've tried it before (hell, a lot of her friends have), and it didn't do much. I'll try once again, though. If that doesn't work, I'll be favoring the idea of letting her die in a hole. >.<;

Here's an idea. Go play playstation WITH her. Like you said, you live in a small farmer's town, theres nothing to do, so go play some video games with her. You don't necessarily have to be "out" to be doing something.

Tried it. She's all about Final Fantasy. Which is cool, because I've played and beaten most of them. But they're one player games. Every multi-player game I recomend to her, she gets bored with and always ends up playing Final Fantasy.. I donno.

I about gave up trying, but I had the perfect opportunity:
She called me about half an hour ago asking if I still had the strategy guide for FFX still, and I told her I did, and she wanted to know if she could borrow it. I told her she could, under one condition. She asked what, so I told her "turn your Playstation off, and come to the concert with me next Friday." She hung up on me.

If that didn't get through to her, then I really am going to give up. It's a shame, though, to ruin a good friendship of seven years over a fucking videogame.

Get a couple of copies of World of Warcraft. Then, you and your girl can move to Azeroth like the dude from purepwnage.

Hm... Eh, people like that are evil. What you need to do is randomly show up at her house one day, walk up to her, tell her to save her game, if she doesn't do it right away, turn it off, kick her in the teeth, and then walk away...

...Either that...
or randomly go over to her house and talk to her about it. Just let her know that you don't want to lose a good friend over something stupid like video games.

Hope I helped a little...

I know this is mean, but if you really wanted to try it.. this is a little trick we learned to get use out of an extended warranty... It could be put to use in your situation..

You say playstation.. I'm assuming it's a one, but this can be done to a 2 also, it just takes a while to take it apart..

take an eyedropper full of mineral oil, and put a drop on the reading lense. It makes it so it can't read the game anymore and it's pretty much invisible.

I guess that's one way to get her out of the house :p

You are a fucking god. This will work perfectly, as she has to go out of state again this weekend for some reason, and her parents asked me to baby sit her little brother. And yes, it is a PS1. Thankyou, a lot. ^_^
