3 video games to play with your Valentine

Gaming is a great shared experience for couples. 1000 people were surveyed to see whether gaming had a positive or negative impact on their relationships. According to the results. one in three couples aged between 18-24 claim that gaming helps their relationship. 

The research did indicate that playing Mario Kart had the most positive effect on gamer couples. Call of Duty and Skyrim came in at second and third place respectively. Out of 1000 people, only 42 mentioned that gaming led to a breakup.

Romantic partners from the millennial generation grew up with video games as a large part of their lives. Therefore, gaming is simply more natural and accepted. Whereas with older generations, a partner who played video games was perceived as juvenile and irresponsible. 

Gaming can be therapeutic for couples. Video games can help people work together for a common goal, share challenges, compete, joint problem-solve, and more. Video games, like anything else, can be a shared activity, and shared activities can foster intimacy between people.

With Valentine’s day fast-approaching and most of us having to spend it indoors, you may be considering a game night for a date idea. Grant Hinds and Ambel Barnard shared their top 3 games couples would enjoy:

Unravel Two

1. Unravel Two

This is a great platforming adventure game seen from a unique perspective, or two. You play as a pair of Yarnys – small beings made of yarn and connected by a single thread – in local co-op or as a single player. Run, jump and swing through platforming puzzles, foster friendship, and shed light on a world covered in shadow.

Not only is it absolutely adorable to play with beautiful levels and the cute characters, but it’s poetic in the way that you can play it alone, but it’s extremely more challenging than if you play co-op. 

Apex Legends

2. Apex Legends 
Apex Legends is different to other first-person shooter games because of the range of characters with a lot of diversity and abilities as well as the rate of play. You can just jump right in battle royale style. 

It’s great to play for couples, because you can choose characters that complement each other’s abilities  and you need a lot of communication and teamwork to succeed. 

3. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

3. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

For those who really like a test, and maybe for those who are doing long-distance, try 'Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. One player has to diffuse a bomb, while the other player has a manual of instructions on how to do that. 

The player with the manual can’t see the bomb and vice-versa, so it relies on you communicating effectively and keeping your cool while things get increasingly more difficult. This game works with VR as well to make it that much more immersive.
