What says Valentine’s Day more than video games with your favorite Player Two?
While some games are clearly better for solo endeavors (Kyle and Final Fantasy have a special relationship for example), there are those special titles that bring people together and even dare we say, inspire love? Who could play Super Smash Bros with a potential mate and not be invigorated with zeal?
IGL hosts also recommend Castle Crashers, the perennial classic Mario Kart, party favorite Super Smash Bros, Lego Harry Potter (aka video game Spanish Fly), dark horse retro game contender, Contra, and more recent entry in the love video game machine, Rocket League.
Castle Crashers is a 2D beat ’em up video game originally for Xbox 360 version which was released in 2008 via Xbox Live Arcade as part of the Xbox Live Summer of Arcade, followed by a PlayStation 3 version in 2010. The game is set in a fictional medieval world with wizards and princesses: a dark wizard steals a mystical gem and captures four princesses. Four knights are charged with the task of rescuing princesses, recovering the jewel, and bringing the wizard to justice. In 2015, developer The Behemoth announced a remastered version of the game for Xbox One.
Lego Harry Potter is such a romantic game choice for lovers, we can hardly keep our pants on. Hollywood ReduXXX indeed. Developed by Traveler’s Tales and published by Warner Bros, the game covers the first four films in the Harry Potter series: Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire. it’s available all over the place: on the Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Microsoft Windows, OS X and iOS. You can play as most of the main characters from the show – try to make it all the way to the Triwizard Tournament without heavy petting.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Don’t forget to let your Player Two know how much XP their love is worth.
