Although there’s a familiar saying about opposites attracting, if you find video games addictive, surely your perfect partner would be someone sharing your passion? During a 2019 survey, it was found that 46 percent of children aged 13 to 18 years old in the United States played video games on a daily basis and studies show that young people prioritise video games over other pleasurable pastimes. These days the best place to connect with fellow gamers would be checking out online dating. There are many dating sites for teenagers, and these tend to be free to join. Once you’ve completed the application process, you can start reaching out to other singles who’ve declared a love of gaming. Take time to get to know them by exchanging discreet messages. All that remains would be arranging your first get-together. Why not convene over consoles?! Here are the top five recommended games.
The Just Dance series is an ideal choice for your first date because it works on so many levels. Everyone adores music, and while some of us can be more reticent at getting up to dance, you and your partner will be swept up by the sheer energy of this workout. You can choose to lose yourself to the beat in a variety of genres, with the 2021 revamp offering 40 hot new tracks, including ‘Adore You’ by Harry Styles, and ‘Rain on Me’ by Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande. Getting immersed in pop music is a fun icebreaker – and channeling all that energy is excellent for keeping fit!
Left 4 Dead
This game introduces a familiar video game theme – those pesky walking dead. Although it’s much darker than any dancing activity, it’s still worthwhile considering for your initial romantic get-together. What’s great about this title is its freewheeling, adventurous style, as you and your other half can control multiple scenarios, taking evasive action as the drama proceeds. You always get the feeling that a crazed zombie with a craving for human flesh is lurking around every corner, making this a terrific adrenaline rush.
Dances, zombies, what next? This game offers a complete change of tone but can make for an equally pleasurable first-date experience. This time you guys are in charge of a team of chefs preparing meals in a kitchen. If that sounds pretty straightforward, it’s anything but! This kitchen is a byword for chaos, as numerous hazards and obstacles conspire to prevent you from delivering the meal on time. You have to be in full control of your reactions, switching from the left to right triggers on your controls as you direct the evasive action of your ill-tempered kitchen staff.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Can you think of anything more nail-biting than bomb disposal? You and your partner must work as a team, dealing with a succession of deadly ticking explosive devices that have been generated. You have access to a detailed manual containing all the instructions you could need to defuse the deadly objects, but that doesn’t provide that much consolation. One of you is alone in the room, just you and the timebomb. The other, designated ‘the Expert,’ is in charge of the manual, but can’t actually observe the unfolding action. This means communication between you has to be level-headed and precise. By the end of the play, you’ll either have bonded or fallen out several times!
Child of Light
Let’s wind down with a less abrasive fantasy game to conclude your first date. The storyline involves a Black Queen having stolen all the heavenly objects – the Sun, Moon, and stars. The main character, Aurora, must embark on a mission to recapture these three light sources. A simple enough premise, but one that you will quickly become captivated by, not least for the superb graphics.
