As cliché as it sounds, every day can be Valentine’s Day when you’re in a relationship. What better way to spend V-Day than by gaming with your partner?
There are plenty of games out there for you and your partner to dive deep into for a great time.
Here are 5 of the best games you and your partner should experience together.
It Takes Two
I have and always will sing my praises on 2021’s Game of the Year.
For the uninitiated, It Takes Two is a co-op action-adventure game following the story of a couple going through a divorce. It sounds depressing but their story takes you through a magical restoration of their failing relationship.
This game is an absolute masterpiece. While the premise is depressing, it brings out the best in both of you. Work with your partner to overcome unique puzzles and experience an adventure like no other.
Also, be sure to check out the movie once Dwayne Johnson is done producing it.
There’s also the “Friend’s Pass.” You can play the entire game for free as long as one of you owns it.
Minecraft is about as cute as it gets when it comes to gaming with your significant other.
Enter a world, and build whatever you both dream of. Make that dream house, fill it with furniture you’ll never sit in, put your beds next to each other, and carve a statue with your initials; that’s Minecraft for you.
If you and your significant other are looking for a first game to dive into together, Minecraft is about as welcoming as it gets.
A new update was just released, titled “The Wild Update,” which boasts a scary theme: perfect for you to be the brave hero in your story.
While Minecraft is a calming multiplayer experience, Overcooked 2 is one of the most hectic experiences of them all.
As the name implies, you are a cook who’s racing against time to make the best food in the area. It starts off relatively easy, but as you continue to perform well, the difficulty ramps up.
There’s a lot of fun to be had with up to four-player co-op and plenty of chaos. Plenty of cooks in the kitchen just make sure you’re patient.
Nobody likes an angry chef.
Stardew Valley is one of the most critically acclaimed indie games of all time for good reasons.
The story is simple: you move to your deceased grandfather’s farm and are tasked with rebuilding it. While you’re doing farmer things, you’ll meet villagers whom you can befriend and explore for hidden treasures.
Everything in the gameplay loop can be done solo or with up to two more players. Bring your partner in and rebuild your grandpa’s estate together.
Chill music and a relatively simple yet engaging gameplay loop; it’s a great time for you and your partner.
Any competitive multiplayer game
When every other game fails to scratch the itch in your relationship, load up a competitive game.
Whether it be Valorant or Overwatch, where your partner is your pocket healer or hard-carry, you’re bound to have a good time. We’ve all queued into a Valorant match with the enemy team boasting “his and hers.”
Why not follow in their footsteps?
Outside of the aforementioned games, Fortnite is always good time with all of the extra modes. Load up Creative and build something cool, do a deathrun, or play Team Rumble.
Mario Kart is another classic if you’re looking for a less intense multiplayer game.
Well, if you’re okay with letting your partner win.
