" John Marston and Abigail Marston "

Why does everyone say John and Abi, I thought you had more of a romantic connection with Bonnie to be honest

RandomManA1388d ago

I liked this, it was well-written, but I have to say, I disagree with every single one of your choices.

Dang, every single one? And you've played all of those games? I guess we're just on opposite sides of the spectrum then.

What are some romances you consider to be better?

RandomManA1387d ago

Well, the first choice - not to include Bioware games - was a mistake. Admittedly, choice has a lot to do with what romance you wind up pursuing, but that doesn't mean it's invalid - quite the opposite, really, I felt much more personally invested because I was the one guiding that romance. In Mass Effect, I've only experienced FemShep/Kaidan, but I felt that was one of the most powerful romances I'd seen in a game. I hear from some others that Shepard/Liara or MaleShep/Tali are even more emotionally powerful.

Along the same lines, I really, really enjoyed romancing Bastila in KOTOR. My relief at talking her down at the end was one of the most emotional reactions I'd had in a game to that point.

Maybe saying I disagreed with ALL of your choices was a bit harsh - I did like Monkey and Trip, but I would've put them lower on the list - but leaving out Ico and Yorda was absolutely criminal.

Well, let me start off by saying I only wanted to do games that I've personally played. So I know how Ico, Monkey Island, and some others are really good, but I don't want to speak about them if I'm not intimately familiar with them.

I didn't include any Bioware games because with all the player choice, every romance is very personal to that player and the world he or she created. The experience is going to be different for every player because they made those choice, and the effects from those choices are completely unique to that player. I wanted highlight relationships that storytellers had a specific plan for.

And come on, how can you not like Phoenix/Maya? They're fantastic.

I'd like to see this industry do a lot more with romantic storylines. It's done quite well in books and movies. Why not games?
