The best video games to play with that special someone


If you want to put your relationship to the test while indulging in a favorite pastime the look no further. The best video games to play with that special someone are sure to do one of two things: bring you together or push you apart. Only time will tell.

Mario Kart

Mario Kart has long been one of the most popular party games, but what could be better than a party of two? That’s right; this game allows you to race all your favorite Mario characters against one another as they battle it out to be the fastest around the track. The best bit? As well as losing hours to the game, this is also the perfect opportunity to brush up on all those Mario Kart skills.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

This two-player game will not only test your communication skills, but it’s the perfect chance to see how each other reacts under pressure. The game is simple. There’s a bomb that needs diffusing. The tough bit? One player reads the manual on what to do while the other wears a VR headset and performs the tasks. It’s all about sending your message loud and clear if you want to make it out the other side.

Until Dawn

This might be a single player game, but Until Dawn is the multiple choice horror game that is sure to have both of you on the edge of your seats. Sometimes, we all need a backseat driver to steer us in the right direction. It’s all about the butterfly effect in this game as you know when you’ve made a decision that will affect the outcome but have no idea if it’s good or bad. The suspense.

Portal 2

This game is the ultimate test of relationships as Portal 2 sees you solving puzzles that you never thought were possible. Sure, one set of portals is enough to blow many people’s minds, so what about when you add a second set into the equation? That’s where things start to get tricky. Although Portal 2 might push both you and your partner to breaking point, there is no feeling quite like completing the puzzle.

Badland

The game is a simple one as you fly through the woods as a creature called a Clone. Sounds easy enough, right? However, there are multiplayer options that see the levels get more intense than before as you must now both battle to make it through to the end by working as a team. To top it off, there is also the dark storyline taking place in the background that is sure to give you plenty to discuss.

Whether you’re looking for a way to bond with your other half or you want to put your relationship to the test, it seems as though there are many video games that will help you to fulfill all your gaming needs and more. Now, it’s time to grab a blanket and order a pizza as you settle for a night with a controller.
