My husband loves video games and plays often. I wasn’t allowed to have games growing up so I’m really awkward and bad at video games so I just watch him play most of the time.
Sometimes though I want to try playing myself and my husband will get really excited and get me all set up and then he proceeds to tell me how to do everything . And when I do it wrong (cause I’m reeeeally bad at controlling camera and movement at the same time still lol) he feels like he needs to tell me why it was wrong. (I know it was wrong lol I died didn’t I?)
I know he’s excited but it’s annoying not getting to try and figure things out on my own. Plus, I know HOW to play most of the time (I’ve been watching for years!)And it’s normally just a problem I’m having remembering the controls – not a misunderstanding about the game.
He even does it when I’m playing Minecraft which is the only game I’ve actually played well for a few years now.
Yes, I’ve told him how annoying it is and makes my gaming experience less fun but he keeps doing it. He gets upset now when I ask him to stop because “I’m just trying to help!!”
I really don’t know how to explain it to him any other way so now I just don’t even try to play which sucks because i think Apex Legends would be really fun if I could just get a chance to try it on my own.
TL;DR – husband backseat games when I try to play cause I suck. It’s very annoying and makes me not want to try playing!
