Love is in the air, can you feel it all around? Well I certainly can’t, because of…reasons. Yessir, it’s your corporate-mandated Valentine’s Day weekend, a period of time where you damn well better remember to be romantic. And nothing says romance better than sappy emotional films, cheap chocolate and massively-overpriced greeting cards.

But you know what else describes Valentine’s Day perfectly? Video games. Specifically, video games which are a perfect mirror of your current romantic standing. For example, here’s a few games which sum up my lovey-dovey plans for the weekend, perfectly:

  • Alone in the Dark
  • Silent Hill
  • Splatterhouse
  • F.I.S.T
  • Just Dance

You get the picture. So which video game sums your love-life up perfectly? Let us know below, while I go cry in a corner. Here’s my actual plans for Valentine’s Day.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    On the subject of Valentines: I see Tecmo has released it’s Valentines DLC for Dead Or Alive 5.
    I am not sure if this is brilliant trolling from them, or if they are trying to balance the over sexualized females with over sexualized males now…

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Not to be pedantic, but if those guys are over sexualised shouldn’t they be smuggling their grapes a bit more obviously?

      • Jan Prins
