This February Examiner takes a look at some of the most emotion inducing romances in video games. There are a lot of iconic video game couples out there but the ones that really stick with players are the ones which they chose for themselves. No matter how deep the story having agency as a player to choose your love interest can mean more than the trials you’ve been through. More modern RPG’s and dating simulator games do just that letting the player choose their love interest and how they approach things from courting to official status, sometimes even marriage.

Video game relationships of course aren’t a substitute for the real thing. Nor do they often simulate a very realistic sort of romantic relationship. However, video game romances can pull on our heart strings and does a pretty good job of making us feel those warm fuzzy feelings we’re all looking for.

Check out this slideshow of some RPG video games ( in no particular order) with romantic interests that can make you feel all the feels.
