Games That Bring Couples Together

Couples are always looking for new ways to interact with each other. In order to avoid the monotony of the dating game, there has to be many different types of synergy. I, like many others have found myself getting bored when dating others. Not to mention, there are only so many restaurants I can take before I have to go out and purchase a new pair of pants! This brings me to my point. Try gaming together.

One of the best ways I’ve found to spend time with your significant other is to game together. You don’t have to be a hardcore gamer like some to do this. You can play any game for that matter. Start with finding a console that you like. This should be easy for most considering guys normally own one or more consoles like Playstation 3, Xbox or Wii. Once you have that part down, and I would be shocked to learn that there exists such a guy who doesn’t own a gaming system, find a game that you both can enjoy. The game should allow for multiple players. If you are into first person shooter games, I would suggest a game like Halo. However, if you’re like me you could always try what I did.

I own a Wii and my fiancé and I have been using it together and separately. He enjoys Zelda games and I fancy the old school SNES games. This console helps us out in many ways.

We stay fit.

The Wii is one of the first gaming consoles to introduce real time movement to play a video game. With games like Zumba and Wii Fit, the opportunities to stay in shape are endless! They even allow for multiplayer modes.

Learn to cooperate together.

If New Super Mario Bros Wii has taught me anything, it is that you need to cooperate together in order to get anything done! The multiplayer in this game is perhaps our favorite. You actually have to watch out for one another because the gameplay can get very difficult when bumping into each other and bouncing off one another. You can actually throw each other off cliffs if you’re feeling devious! My fiancé has done this many times when I do something wrong. Can you imagine that?

Laugh together.

I can’t tell you how many times we have laughed while playing games together. This is perhaps our favorite past time and keeps us happier than anything else. We have so much fun playing New Super Mario Bros Wii, that we have actually started recording our gameplay and commentary. The jokes and insanity are endless and we enjoy continuing to produce these videos of our fun together.

To sum it up, for those couples on a budget, like ourselves, who may not be able to afford nights out, gaming together is a creative way to get the sparks flying.
