Step 2: Get Food
• Good Sense of Humor
• Good Cooking Skills OR Access to Pizza, Mexican Food, or Not-Fast-Food Burgers
• Time (This Will Vary Depending on How You Will Get the Food)
Once you have sat through a few hours of learning your Gamer, it’s time for you to propose a break. This will help your Gamer know that you do want to spend some time with them, but will not seem like you are over-imposing on Game Time (everyone needs food and therefore needs breaks for food). The success rate on this Step can vary depending on what game, what level, and what’s your Gamer’s plan for this game (just for fun or to “play through the storyline”). Certain games played can be more addictive for your Gamer, in which case you may need to do this step for the first time with a food your Gamer cannot resist (you do this so that every time following you can lure them away with the hope of getting this food again). While retrieving nutrition for your Gamer, be sure to sprinkle a little love for them (there is no maximum amount of love to sprinkle). This will help you and your Gamer’s relationship grow.
Note: After this step your Gamer may want to resume Game Time. If this occurs you can choose between resuming your observation or go do something else. It is however recommended to resume your observation if you feel you have not gained enough basic knowledge for future steps.
