Are you sad about not having a lover this Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry, because with the help of video games, the gaping sized hole of loneliness in your heart can be filled! Find romance in a variety of ways this holiday with virtual love.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Starting with the best game from 2017, this fabulous adventure is more than just stunning graphics and engaging storytelling. It also has beautiful characters that are just eye-candy galore. Sure, you have Zelda, the princess of Hyrule herself, but with a cast filled with characters including Mipha, Urbosa, Prince Sidon, and Link, who needs genuine relationships?

Life is Strange

Life is Strange is a beautiful game that takes on time travel and the idea of the butterfly effect. The game focuses on Max, the artsy protagonist on a mysterious journey with an overlooking decision, do you date Chloe or Warren? All of your decisions matter, and so does the person you end up with. Your best option is Chloe, a blue-haired troublemaker who reeks of anarchy and mystery, but then there is Warren, the male love interest who is a movie nerd. Take this Valentine’s Day to make important decisions in your life.

Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey is meant for the gamers who despise love and want to spend Valentine’s Day seeking revenge. Destroying Peach’s wedding with Bowser is the overarching conflict. If this Wednesday you’re finding yourself rather repulsed by the mere thought of romance, this game will be a great way to take that out.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

Another game filled with weddings is Skyrim. However, unlike Super Mario Odyssey, Skyrim’s marriages aren’t part of the story, but whoever you chose to marry can bring benefits to your journey. Spouses can be a great addition when facing dragons and trolls. The best part of this is that when they die in combat, they come back to life. This, in a loving sense, breaks your death-do-you-part-vow. Skyrim is perfect for those who just want someone they can rely on over and over again.

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is a great game for those who love money. Not on the receiving end, but the giving. This pixelated farming simulator has more than just cows and chickens, it has a lot of marriage candidates. You’re able to swoon anyone, male or female, if you’re willing to give away your life savings. If you give them enough diamonds, they might even make you breakfast.

The Stanley Parable

If this Valentine’s Day you find yourself wanting to be alone, try out The Stanley Parable. You play as Stanley, the only worker in a large empty business, trying to find anyone or anything that resembles life. With only a narrator who occasionally gives guidance, you wander in silence for hours. How lovely.

Pikmin

Instead of swooning over someone else, have fun with an army of fans to do your bidding. In Pikmin, you play as a mini astronaut who landed on a mysterious planet. With the help of creatures called Pikmin that you find along your journey, you’ll be able to solve puzzles and fight enemies.When crossing a planet filled with creatures that want to eat you, you’re not able to fight, but your Pikmin can. Pikmin will sacrifice their life for you, and that keeps you safe. Love is in the air with Pikmin, just like their souls.

L.A. Noire

Don’t want to fall in love with another being? Try falling in love with your career! In L.A. Noire, your passion for completing detective missions will be just as rewarding as completing a successful date. Who knows, on a mission you might be drawn into an action-packed battle! Now that is an entertaining way to spend your Valentine’s Day alone.

    You don’t know us because NONE OF THIS IS TRUE! Stop treating Super Mario Odyssey terribly.

    Isn’t Valentines Day for gamers just hanging out with your best friend eating pizza?

    Normally I keep from commenting, but I absolutely must say: When talking about romance in games, how can you miss Fire Emblem (specifically, Awakening and Fates). While leading an army, get them all married to each other and marry someone yourself, and then get all of their stupidly powerful children… Who you then pair with each other! Also, in the case of fates, whenever you go to your house you’ll be greeted by your spouse once you get one, who’ll pretty much always shower you in love. Try not to get them killed. Or be a coward like me and play on casual. Then they’ll just come back.

    By no stretch of the imagination is the wedding in Odyssey Peaches idea. Last I checked being locked in the Binding Band while dangling from a large height while Bowser threatened to roast her best friend was not something she liked.

    Ew. No. Go away. We don’t need your cringe here. As an actual female video game fan, I can say that without a doubt, your spirit Pokemon is a Salazzle. Look it up.

    (Step up your game, Metea Media. I’d say this base comment breaks 2 of your guidelines.)
