Happy Valentine’s Day!

In the world of romance, video games tend to get a bad rap. Gamers are sometimes viewed as childish, and being called immature by your impatient significant other is a quick way to feel guilt, anger, and resentment.

On the other hand, there are couples who stay together by playing together. Whether it’s a date playing Wii Bowling, surviving in Left 4 Dead, building up a farm in Harvest Moon, or creating a testament to their love in SimCity, playing games together can be just as enjoyable and romantic as dinner and a movie. I’d suggest wine and spaghetti with your gaming.

So what do you play with your significant other? Do you rekindle your romance with the classics, or are modern games what brought you together? Or are you one of those indies who made a game for your sweet?

  • Any games that are co-op are usually pretty good to play with a significant other. My wife and I play Lego Star Wars and Rockband on the PS3, and New Super Mario Bros on the Wii. It can get frustrating at times, especially with NSMBW, but we do ok. 🙂
