The many different faces of romance in video games

WWC: "Ah… Valentine’s Day, a holiday that really is for lovers only. If there’s one thing that everyone can take away from this special day, it’s that love comes in many different forms. Sometimes it’s extreme and abusive, other times it’s sweet and gentle. Then there is love that is just plain odd, but regardless, love is love. While other mediums have been tackling the subject for quite some time, video games rarely delve into this ocean of emotion. Some have tried to capture this primordial feeling and failed, but among their rotting hearts you can find a few rare examples of excellence." (Catherine, Culture, Final Fantasy X, Gears of War, Katawa Shoujo, PC, PS2, PS3, Shadow of the Colossus, Shadows of the Damned, Xbox 360)
