In the battle for her boyfriend’s attention, Lindsay Cosens fears only one foe. It’s not other girls or his friends, but one many other girlfriends are facing — video games.

First-person shooter games — Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 for Xbox, the Microsoft game console — are commanding the attention of many boyfriends while other girls have lost their men to the online computer game World of Warcraft.

Cosens, a graduate student, first came into contact with Halo when her boyfriend, who she says has been "obsessed with video games forever," became determined to beat it.



The couple has been together for more than six years, but the game did cause a few problems, Cosens said.

"We’ve gotten into little spats where maybe I want to watch TV and he’s using it, but we solved that by getting a second TV," she said.

Cosens isn’t alone in her struggle against video games. Chelsea Chamberlin, an education sophomore, created the www.facebook.com group "Halo stole my boyfriend," as a response to a boyfriend who loved the game a little too much.

"My boyfriend at the time played the game all the time," she said. "He would have Halo parties all the time and I wouldn’t be able to hang out with him because he was having those parties."
