so I have a decent video collection, I will not post pictures as I do not want this post linked to my actual account.

my girlfriend of 2 years 25f and me 24f decided we wanted to move in together, she kinda mentioned getting rid of my collection but I thought she was joking so I brushed it off. turns out she wanted me to get rid of my whole video game collection, some of my games are worth some money and I've been keeping them so they can become more expensive. my collection is also 3 years of me thrift shopping and I do not want to throw that away, I tried to explain it but she refused and told me that I did not love her enough to make this sacrifice.

about 2/3 days ago she called me and said it's me or the fucking video games. I chose the games and she hung up on me.

everyone that I've spoken to (excluding a few people) have been telling me I fucked up, and that I should of picked her over some games.

AITA?

NTA. It's your hobby, and one of the ways you choose to enjoy your free time and blow off steam. It's part of who you are. Her telling you to make a choice is, in a way, being disrespectful of who you are and what you like. That's never going to work in the long term.

That said, if your hobby time exceeds the quality time you spend with your girlfriend, then you need to think hard about that. I've been gaming for decades, and I've got a ton of hobbies beside that. My wife knew that well before we got married, but I make sure to give her most of my time and attention. Furthermore, we split most of the chores and work around the house, including the cooking and cleaning. So make sure you have your priorities straight. Maybe your gf is reacting to how much time you spend playing vs time with her?

There has to be more to this story than this.

What's the reason for her wanting you to get rid of the games? How did you react initially?
