Today is Valentine’s Day, and to celebrate we give you eight of the best couples in the history of gaming. So sit back and grab a tissue: Most of these don’t end well.
Cloud and Aerith from Final Fantasy VII made a great couple. I wonder if they met at the hair salon when they both asked for that crazy hair.
Gears of War 2 gave us Dom and Maria. If only Dom hadn’t hid his heart behind chest high walls of emotion. You can dodge bullets, but you can’t dodge love.
Gordon and Alyx from Half Life 2 are a perfect pair as they avoid headcrabs, all the while trying to hug each other. A couple that kills together stays together, just ask Bonnie and Clyde.
Guybrush and Elaine are one of the greatest couples in gaming. They’ve stood together through the years, winning the Cutest And Also Only Couple On Monkey Island award several years running.
Isaac and Nicole just prove that you can find love while killing crazy space creatures. Heck, don’t we all just want what they have?
Jackie and Jenny, from The Darkness, show that love can withstand anything, even murderous supernatural spirits that inhabit your corpse.
Talk about a classic couple, Link and Zelda have persisted through quite the number or problems. Now if only Link can get over being called Zelda all the time, maybe he can have a happier life.
Uncharted is definitely one of the best series of the past decade. One reason that it’s been such a staple in the adventure genre is because these two, Nathan and Elena, make a perfect couple.
