Whether they are films, songs or poems, the romance is an essential topic in all kinds of artistic expression, even in video games. But to capture the essence of love and the process of falling in love has never been easy in an interactive environment; many games resort to clichés surface instead of trying to show it in motion. However, from time to time, developers have found ways to offer stories of romance believable and sincere. So, if you want to play a game that you can see flourish the love this Valentine’s Day, or on any other occasion, we have a list of some of the best video games romantic, for you to enjoy alone or with that special person.
Florence is, in essence, a novel interactive visual. A love story that you can be a part, that fits in your pocket and requires less than an hour of your time. But during that period, it still manages to offer an experience that is more sincere, presenting puzzles light that recall the times of the day-to-day.
This indie game provides an experience clearly intelligent and charming. It tells the story of a young woman who gets involved in a romance, using a series of interactive scripts short.Everything is done with quick interactions and well thought out with a few simple taps on the screen of your smartphone.

FINAL FANTASY X
Final Fantasy is a game known for its plots without limits, quirky characters and its main purpose of “save the world”. However, if you’ve had the chance to play any of these adventures, you will notice that each series displays discreetly a love story, but, definitely, Final Fantasy X is the one that best expresses love in a more realistic way.
In this story the relationship between Yuna and her guardian Tidus is presented in a more detailed and intense, and the game features a true story of love. Despite the fact that, previously, we had seen relationships within the video game, this is the first time that shows in a more realistic way how this couple is so peculiar you know and love.
But if you need more evidence of the great love between Tidus and Yuna, you have to enjoy the funny scenes and even silly that occur between them, which will surely look very much like the meetings you have had with any partner
Final Fantasy X is available on PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PS2, and will be available on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on April 16.
THE MASS EFFECT TRILOGY
The series Mass Effect of BioWare creates exceptional figures through a history of quality and, what is more important, the choice of the player. It is amazing to see how the way in which you can customize Commander Shepard not only affects the course of history, but also their relationships with other characters throughout the series. In addition, the smart system will help you to realize your successes, failures, and those times ambiguous in that you don’t know where you are headed in the relationship.
However, we noticed that the actions are more romantic and intense, Shepard was seen in Mass Effect 3. While the original game only gives players two options, male and female, to customize your Shepard, Mass Effect 2 expands to six potential romantic partners each, and Mass Effect 3 gives you up to nine options of Shepard male and seven Shepard female. Best of all is that the relationships that you will choose to continue to evolve organically over the course of each game, becoming a romantic adventure.
Mass Effect Trilogy is available on PS3, Xbox 360 and compatible with Xbox One.
Stardew Valley offers one of the more realistic depictions of romantic couples in the games. Your character escapes from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy a calm and pleasant life on the farm, but taking care of your crops, it can be lonely. But do not worry, for this small problem there is a solution: fortunately, in the game you will find six different characters who are looking for love, and it is possible that one of them is the perfect partner for the main character.
It is important to note that the main character (you) is looking for a stable relationship, following a process very similar to what happens in real life, so things may not be a single blow. First, you have to establish a friendship with that character you like so much, to be able to achieve to conquer (to). For this reason, we recommend that, to fall in love with that character, start to talk with him (her), give him cards, gifts and ask him to be your partner) dancing in the festivals, as most people would do in real life. Finally, when you manage to realize the perfect relationship, you can buy a special collar to your partner and to ask her to marry you.
The most interesting part about the romance in Stardew Valley is that no state of relationship is inevitable or permanent. Which means that that character you like so much, you may deny your request for marriage or to end the relationship if you believe that you’re not giving it the attention it deserves (even more real, impossible!) So, if you want a happy ending, ponte las pilas and do not neglect those details that make a relationship lasting.
