PLAY TOGETHER ON VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentine’s Day is a day for romance, but it is also a day for fun. Traditionally couples have a romantic dinner, but if you do not want the pressure of an expensive meal out in a squashed and noisy restaurant, play together at home on Valentine’s Day with some fun gaming suggestions given below:

Games to play on Valentine’s Day

We are all busy balancing our work, family and other responsibilities, but gaming is a fun way to play together, either through competition or co-operation to win a game. This is also a good time to present a new game that would be a great Valentine’s gift for a husband who loves new adventures. If you are not sure what game to buy for 14 February, we have put together a list for you to consider.

Portal 2

Portal 2 has a cooperative mode that will have you both needing to use your critical thinking. Completing stages is not as simple as you might think at first, but once the two of you are synchronised you will be able to take down Aperture’s obstacles with ease. The campaign mode also has a second player helping out makes solving the puzzles more fun and there are enough user levels to keep you interested after your launch game.

Rayman Legends

If the two of you have different skills levels when it comes to gaming, then Raman Legends will be perfect for you, thanks to its cooperative mode which means that even if you lose everything, your partner can get you back in the action. This makes approaching each level has to be strategic, but at least it is low stress.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Mario Kart series has always been a great choice for couples where there is a significant skill difference, as there’s still a chance of winning races. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is no different, with its gravity-defying racing and classic courses. It can be played docked in the television or in tabletop mode which means you can take this with you outside of the house.

Life is Strange

This dialogue-heavy, but quick play adventure game is a great choice for a couple who want to play together. You can make dialogue decisions together and experience Max and Chloe’s journey as it happens. Then, when it comes time to make a choice that will drastically affect the story, you’ll have to give it some extra thought, because it can get emotional. You can also pass the controller back and forth, allowing whoever currently holds it to have complete control over the story until they give it back.
