7 of the Best Video Games to Play With Your Significant Other
Whether or not you're dating a gamer, these games will be sure to partner the two of you up on the couch and have you giggling joyfully until the wee hours of the morning. The couple that plays together, stays together.
Mario Kart 8
The biggest no brainer on this list. The Mario Kart series is pure candy, and 8 is one of the best of the series. It's easy for the noob of the duo to pickup, and difficult for pros to put down.
Sometimes teamwork can lead to extraordinary moments, and the co-op in Portal 2 is a fine example. By the time the two of you get through this puzzley opus you'll have really leveled up your communication game. Hell, this game could be a type of couple's therapy.
The Downside: Some of the puzzles are rather confusing, and if you don't maintain a cool disposition the game can get a bit frustrating.
A first person shooter for all skill levels Destiny's gameplay is tight and leaves you grinning each time the two of you explode an alien's head. Honestly, it's one of the most rewarding sensations in recent gaming. Sure the story maybe lackluster and the voice acting falls a bit flat. But none of that matters as you and your partner stand side by side against the rising hordes of the darkness.
The Downside: Requires two consoles, so you've got to go the extra mile to get you and your S.O. to play together.
A pure RPG classic, and one of the few that allows for multiple players. Sure first player controls the main character through the entire game, but when the battle starts player two can get in there and really do some damage. With a great story and adorable sprites the two of you will probably be entranced for hours.
Unlike the others on this list, "A Wolf Among Us" isn't a traditional co-op. But, what it lacks in two player controls it makes up for in backseat driving. Telltale has created an excellent interactive movie with tons of fairy tail romance, and decapitations. Trust me, decapitations are in fairy tales too. The two of you can sit on the couch and discuss the choices you make as you go. You get to make up how the story goes together, isn't that sweet?
