Video games can show how characters fall in love in beautiful ways. Here are some of the best games with love stories.
Love can be found in any video game. It can take the form of romantic love or love between family members. Some games are sold as romances, while others are less obvious about it. Even though the love story isn’t the most important part of the game, it’s still there.
In this list, we’ll look at some of the best love stories in video games that are sure to make your heart beat faster. This will be a mix of family love and romantic love, and it will include games that aren’t always “romantic.” First, let’s look at a Supergiant Games hit that has been around for a long time.
Transistor is a short and fun game made by the same people who made Hades. In this game, you take on the role of Red, who uses a huge sword called the Transistor. At first, this seems like a normal exploration game with a slow-moving story, but it turns out to be a lot more than that.
The game’s narrator lives in the Transistor and goes on Red’s journey with her. During the game, you’ll see how much they love each other, and by the end, you might even shed a tear or two for them.
The Last Of Us Part 1
Next, we’ll look at a case of love that isn’t romantic. Part 1 of The Last of Us introduces us to Joel and Ellie. At first, they are traveling together as two strangers. Also, Joel wants to stay away from Ellie at first because she reminds him of his daughter, who died when the end of the world began. Over time, though, Joel and Ellie fall in love. Joel starts to treat Ellie like a daughter, and he would do anything to keep her safe.
The two of them have a beautiful relationship, and we can’t wait for the HBO show to show this bond getting stronger. Overall, this relationship is beautiful because Joel is able to open his heart and see that there is still someone he can love and protect.
The three games in the Bayonetta series are all about the main character, Bayonetta. As an Umbran Witch, you can cut down waves of angels in these fast-paced action games. Even when you’re not killing, you can see more than one love story. In the first two Bayonetta games, we see how much Bayonetta’s parents, Rosa and Balder, loved each other. This is a sad love story because the two people are from different clans.
In Bayonetta 3, we also see how much Bayonetta and Luka love each other. They have a strong bond that goes all the way through the multiverse and lasts even after death.
Hades follows Zagreus’s journey through the Underworld as he tries to escape and find his mother, Persephone. Along the way, you will meet many mythological characters, such as Achilles and Patroclus, who were thought to be lovers and were at the center of the Trojan War.
During the Trojan War, they both died, and they were no longer together. As Zagreus, you can bring them back together in the Underworld and tell Achilles where to find his lover. Through a short questline, you’ll be able to help the couple work out their problems and get back together. Even though this isn’t the main point of the game, it’s a good ending for two characters who clearly miss each other, and it’s only possible because of your help.
Final Fantasy 8
You might think of Tidus and Yuna when you think of love stories in Final Fantasy. Still, there are more love stories, like Rinoa and Squall’s in Final Fantasy 8. Squall Leonhart is the leader of a group of mercenaries and one of the main characters in the game. In the group he leads, Rinoa is one of the people, and he soon falls in love with her.
Rinoa and Squall’s relationship is risky because it goes beyond just romance. Squall has trouble expressing how he feels, but Rinoa is just the opposite. By spending time together, the two fall in love, and Squall would eventually do anything to save her.
The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead gets a new look in Telltale’s The Walking Dead. We don’t follow the main characters from the show, but instead meet new ones, like Lee Everett and Clementine. Like Joel and Ellie, these two love each other like family. Lee is not related to Clementine by blood, but he acts like a father to her.
The love between Lee and Clementine is really like a father teaching and protecting his daughter from the dangerous world. The story of the two will make you cry, and in a zombie apocalypse, happiness doesn’t last forever.
The next one is Cyberpunk 2077. In this game set in the future, you can choose from a few different people to date. Some of these interests don’t offer much, but Panam is not one of them. Panam Palmer was a strong member of the Aldecaldos in the past, and she is more than just V’s lover. Panam stays with you until the end, and the game’s ending has something to do with her.
Judy also has a great love story that isn’t about Panam. If you don’t try to get to know Judy as a person, she might seem like a tough techie. But if you date her, you’ll get to see a different side of this character. The story of how V and Judy fell in love is very close.
Garrus and Tali from Mass Effect are the last ones. Like Cyberpunk 2077, the Mass Effect Legendary Edition lets you choose from a number of different people to date. Other characters can also fall in love with each other. If you don’t date Garrus or Tali, they might get together on their own.
Garrus and Tali are both in the first Slope Game, but you can’t date them until the second one. You can now leave them alone and see how they get along. If they are sent on a mission together, they have a real relationship with small fights and flirting. Even though it’s not the saddest love story, it’s great to see two beloved characters fall in love.
