Couples that Game Together

Lots of people have trouble when it comes to relationships and having things in common with the one they are dating. As someone who enjoys playing video games a lot I really appreciate that I’m dating someone who likes them just as much as me. This comic illustrates exactly what our relationship is like:

From dare2play.net (Issue 5)

(What’s even sadder than the comic itself is that these friends are made up.) But in all seriousness, even though my boyfriend and I make fun of ourselves in this comic, we actually really appreciate being able to do together what we both enjoy – video games. Sure some couples go out on dates, catch a movie and a coffee, but me and my guy sit around and play some SWTOR, Soulcaliber V, or even do it up retro style with our SNES.

So this Valentine’s Day do what you love and don’t be ashamed of it. If you want to go out like normal people – that’s fine too, but why not try these games that are perfect for couples who want to game together:

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Made by Bioware this MMORPG has a lot to offer any gamer whether a Star Wars fan or not. Choose Light or Dark side characters, team up, and work together to defeat baddies across the universe. Compete with dice rolls to see who wins conversation options, whether you’re feeling particularly kind or evil. This game is perfect for couples who can afford it.

Little Big Planet 2

Although my boyfriend isn’t too big on this one, I am absolutely in love with it and can spend hours making outfits for my little Sackboy. It’s great as co-op and never loses game-time value because of the large community contributing to the content.

All Legend of Zelda Games

I say this only because my boyfriend and I have had a blast playing through games like LOZ:OOT and LOZ:SS, and we are huge Zelda fans. When faced with a one player game try to section off areas so that you can take turns or simply just pass off the controller when one person is getting tired/annoyed (as is very common in our case). It all depends on your personality but I don’t mind watching someone else play games and if your partner doesn’t either you both are in for a really good time (just don’t try to be a back-seat driver).

  3. It’s funny because it’s true! My other half and I played EverQuest together for a good five years. He got me into that, and I’m training him up on Final Fantasy. It’s got to the point where we have to have two PS3’s so we can play at the same time. We’ve even been known to message each other on them from the next room, rather than just, you know, shout. There’s no hope, we’re a lost cause. :)
