Love and Video Games

While doing some random surfing of the net, mainly via stumbleupon.com, I came across an interesting article that especially is relevant to the festivities of Valentines Day. As the article states, “Valentine’s Day is the time for couples to show how much they mean to each other, but when most couples are dining at fancy restaurants or cuddling at the movie theater, some of us just want to stay at home and play video games with the person that makes us the happiest.”

Here is the list of the top 8 video games that couples should play together on the big V Day.

-Splinter Cell: Conviction

I know, shocking to me as well, but it appears that this game involves great amounts of teamwork and is perfect for those couples who feel that their skills in gaming match up well.

-Blur

Sexy cars, hot car on car action, make this game a perfect one for those who desire some fast paced action with their partner, or partners as you can play split screen with multiple players.

-Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

No words necessary for this one. Kind of a dark and demented message. But then again, this is a pretty weird list as it is.

-Saint’s Row 2

Interestingly enough, the question they ask about this one is “Do you and your sweetheart share a fondness for beating up hookers, spraying the town with feces or pimping out cars so you can run over pedestrians in style? If you answered yes then I highly suggest giving Saint’s Row 2 a go as it provides all that and so much more.” Once again, no words necessary.

-Resident Evil 5

Not only does this game incorporate teamwork, it also provides for some fun role-play after gaming is completed.

-LittleBigPlanet 2

Fun, friendly, simple, this game is especially perfect for the partner who is not a big gamer. The maps and ability to pick out the ensemble of the “Sackboy” or “Sackgirl” will lead to endless hours of fun.

-Rock Band 3

I mean, who doesn’t want to spend a romantic evening rocking out to some of your favorite songs with the one you love.

And last but not least…

-Dead Space 2

These words were just too good not to quote. “They say horror movies are the ultimate aphrodisiac, so assuming that rule also applies to video games, that would make Dead Space 2 the skeleton key to your other half’s lower regions. Just light some candles and cozy up on the couch for some raunchy strategic dismembering action. Or, if you have Extraction and a partner that’s willing to brave the Necromorph filled halls of the USG Ishimura than that could be just as fun. Just make sure they know what they’re getting into.”

So there you have it. If you have that special someone and are looking for something to do next year around this time, look no further. Video games are the answer to your prayers. Enjoy gaming, responsibly of course.

    I love Blur! So much fun, it’s like Mario Kart with real cars. I actually got to beta-test the game last spring, and that convinced me to buy the full version when it was released.
