PlayStation’s Greatest Romances… And What You Can Learn From Them

PlayStation’s Greatest Romances… And What You Can Learn From Them

It’s Valentines day and since we’re without a great deal of imagination we’re running a romance themed post that ties together the day with videogames. How marvelously pathetic. Anyway, here it is.

The Prince & Farah
– Relationships can have tricky beginnings, but time spent together can be very revealing. The instant attraction may not be there, but being in someone’s company can reveal hidden depths. Such was the story of The Prince and Farah in Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time.
Lesson to be learned: If you love someone you have to let them go (by turning back time to save the world and having them forget you)

Ico & Yorda
– The language of love is international and requires no translation, a bit like football. Ico and Yorda weren’t exactly the most talkative pair, but a bond was formed. Now, relationships formed in moments of great stress or drama can be tricky things to maintain once the drama’s gone, but these two seemed to have a future.
Lesson to be learned: Simple romantic gestures (like holding hands) can go a long way

Gordon Freeman & Alyx Vance
– Age is no boundary to love as Freeman and Vance prove in the Half-Life 2 adventure, something that you should already have worked out from Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones. Anyway, despite being old enough to be her father Alyx clearly falls for the strong and silent Freeman in a big bad way. Could it be the glasses?
Lesson to be learned: Actions (with a Gravity Gun) speak louder than words

Nathan Drake & Elena Fisher
– Opposites often attract for the precisely the reason that their opposition actually makes them very similar. And so what was once false becomes truth, night becomes day and cottage cheese with pineapple chunks in becomes edible. Nathan and Elena may forever circle each other, but they keep getting closer.
Lesson to be learned: The possibility of death seems to be a real romance maker

& Companion Cube
– Just because something is an inanimate object, doesn’t mean you can’t fall in love with it. Chell clearly has an attachment to the Companion Cube in Portal and we know this because we do too. However, we think GLaDOS may be jealous. That may be something to watch out for.
Lesson to be learned: Loved ones shouldn’t be stabbing you.

Wander & Mono
– The tragic origin of Wander’s fight against the Colossi moved us all. In a desperate attempt to bring back his lost love from death he takes it upon himself to become death himself. That was probably a error. As mentioned before you sometimes have to let the one you love go. Wander really should have played Prince Of Persia.
Lesson to be learned: Dead girlfriends are a lot of trouble, try to avoid them

In conclusion Valentine’s Day is a joke, but love is nice and a little romance didn’t do anyone any harm… except when people get hurt in which case it does do harm. Ham on the other hand in harmless and very tasty with a good mustard and strong cheese.
