Valentine's Day: The 8 Dumbest Romances in Videogame History

Romance in video games: It makes us laugh, it makes us cry, it makes us scratch our heads and sort of sit back and look confusedly at the screen. Mostly the last one. There have been a lot of horrible romance subplots in video games, but here’s our tribute to the worst.

Terrible list to say the least

Tidus and Yuna don't belong as they were one of a few gaming romances I actually thought was well done.

Why aren't Mario and Princess Peach on the list?

Girl gets kidnapped 817268172681 times, gets saved 817268172681 and Mario still isn't really getting anywhere with her.

What about Link and Zelda?

Link has never said two words to the girl.

I could go on and on tbh. But anyways, like I said, terrible list.

CDbiggen2809d ago

Meryl and Johnny MGS4 should have made this list.

TheGamerBible2809d ago

Yeah that was the dumbest wasy a minor gag character could have become a main character.

Ravenor2809d ago

Their firefight at the end also defied logic, it was also just kinda boring to watch.

Ravenor2809d ago

Big lol for the people defending Final Fantasy X.

In fact...


You think it's annoying if i type it? Listening to their irritating voices and then listening to that was enough for me to find the next Save point and quit. Final Fantasy was better without any character voice, wayyyy better.

you'd be right if this were the stone age xD

no voice? how about no pictures either ? :)

ChickeyCantor2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

Narration have done fine without voices in the past.
You "no pictures" comparison is just retarded.

An image says more than a thousand words?
Yeah, hold that thought.

FFXs cast was horrible, and so was their romance.

ShinMaster2808d ago

You're right. An image is worth more than words.

It was one of the things I didn't like about FF Dissidia. They gave many of the characters voices(and bad ones too).

sich922809d ago

im not a ffx fan it was super cheesy i know but in my opinion,it sucks to have just typed stuff,but i still loved the written dialogues in ff12,,,which is my favorite,iknow the new ff's arent good with dialogues and kinda lame but 12's had a good mix of both,but no dialogues is NOT the solution,the solution is using better Voice actors,thats all

and music is a billion words +gazillion pictures xD

So people with annoying voices shouldn't fall in love? ;)

TheGamerBible2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

"It’s kind of weird watching two people fall in love when they have the exact same face."
All the main FF characters have the same face.

NiteX2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

I'm pretty sure that's racist.

TheGamerBible2809d ago

Um I dont see what you mean. Look at their faces. They are like freaking mannequins.

Istanbull2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

The author sux at making articles:

"It’s kind of weird watching two people fall in love when they have the exact same face."

The faces of the people in FFX looked similar because it was Square's design choice. Look at the game "BOUNCER", also a Square game, people have the same faces like in FFX.

Krimmson2808d ago

So because it's a style, it's ok to have characters with the same face?

That's not a style, that's borderlining laziness! It's almost as bad (if not as bad) as the Dead or Alive characters with their emotionless faces and creepy doll expressions.
