Top 7… Greatest love stories in gaming

We love games, and most of the time they love us back. But games that actually tell a great love story? Those are as rare as The One. Most of what we see involves either the romance of a damsel in distress or the bromance of space marines bonding over a pile of bullet-riddled alien corpses. But occasionally a game creates such a special link between two characters that their romance lingers with us. (Culture, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)

Its a pity the love triangle between Nate, Elena and Chloe was gone in Uncharted 3 and they killed Harry "Incoming" Flynn. They will surely be missed. What was Naughty dog thinking?

But don't get me wrong Uncharted 3 more than made up for its excellent graphics, character design and fully procedural water system.

The love triange wouldn't really work stretched over a number of games, you knew by the end Elena was the best choice for Drake

However John and Abi.....Bonnie and John were more of a couple in RDR. I wish Abi died so he could of formed a relationship with her.

Rhinoa and Squall? Sora and Kairi?

Tidus and Yuna was good but not as good as those two.

Both were great told love stories :)

Though vivi marrying Quina was very touching ;)

Tidus and Yuna were miles better than Sora and that robot Kairi, seriously that 'love' side of the story was not that great...mostly due to Kairi. And Rinoa and Squall..eh...Naw. Close but not as good.

I loved the Cloud & Aries love story.
The Uncharted Elena & Drake love story was great to.
And my favorite The Boss and big boss/Naked Snake/John/Vic Voss.

really the boss and big boss? to me it felt like a mother and son relationship

I definitely agree with you when it comes to the maternal/romantic relationship between The Boss and Naked Snake.

Such a tragic story... :/

Here's hoping for a prequel to MGS3, The Boss and her Cobra unit.

Everyone needs to play To The Moon. It's #1 spot is well deserved.
talisker  +   750d ago
I found To The Moon story overhyped a lot. If you played a lot of JRPGs, you won't find anything new or surprising there. And the gameplay is so simple and repetitive, you just click on things and read dialogues. A nice game for an indie but doesn't deserve all the recognition, IMHO.

its a good list but monkey and trip really?
what about
skyward sword link and zelda
the prince and farah/elika
sora and kairi
j-blaze  +   750d ago
good list, but c'mon now Uncharted? seriously? it was bland and stupid if you ask me, Elena didn't feel like a girl more like a tomboy all because of Emily's terrible voice and motion capture acting... how about Valkyria Chronicles, Lunar: SSH, Tales of the Abyss, FF8, MGS3, Prince of Persia, almost every Growlanser game etc... lots of great games that have much better love stories to make the selection from

man, i wonder, why do you hate ND this much.

This is just pathetic.

You have left a comment under every ND related article.

You are generally anti sony studios, but somehow ND just grinds your balls or something.
sashimi  +   750d ago
You know the saying "there's a thin line between love and hate" maybe it applies to him and ND. He seems to care enough to post in every single ND related article lol

I wonder how long it will be until J-blaze starts poking at The Last of Us voice acting and motion capture even though we know it will be stellar. It's always lame-ass excuses with this hater. Apparently the woman that plays Tess is a terrible actor because "moves her arms and hands too much". I'm almost convinced that this is trolling, but I know it's actually unfounded hatred which is sad.
