The 8 Best Romance Games to Find Your Virtual Soulmate
FOR many people, getting out into the real world and meeting real people isn’t the easiest task, and that was before a pandemic shut down the entire world for two years.
Still, if you want to experience an idyllic romance, then the world of video games has you covered.
It might sound a bit odd to those outside of the gaming circle, but romance games are often more than just flirting with certain pixels. They allow you to find love while solving a mystery, saving the world, or simply telling a sweet romantic story.
We have selected the best games that will allow you to choose your partner and court them by your side forever.
Catherine full body
Made by Atlus, the same studio as the Persona series, Catherine Full Body mixes the confusing with elements of social simulation, a studio specialty.
This game raises many moral dilemmas and you choose your preferred partner. You must choose between Catherine, Katherine or Rin.
This series of creatively named characters will challenge your ideals and really make you think about what you value most in others.
Doki Doki Literature Club
In Doki Doki Literature Club, the cute anime girls vying for your affection are far more memorable than most generic visual novels.
What makes this game stand out is best left a mystery, but just know that there is so much more to this game than meets the eye.
Steins; Door: my darling’s embrace
The “harem” romance is quite a fantasy for many romance players, and Stiens; Gate isn’t shy about wanting to see those fantasies come true.
It’s not just about flirting and gathering girlfriends, as you also have a very important side mission which is to travel back in time to save the world from an apocalypse.
It sounds weird, but you’d be surprised how great a plot line like this is for anime.
Fata Morgana’s house
The Faithful Fact is another common fantasy, but The House in Fata Morgana puts a unique spin on it by surrounding it in a multi-generational mystery of the old, worn mansion you own.
You must piece together this puzzle through multiple story periods to finally defeat the evil force that lies at the heart of the mansion.
X Malice necklace
Want to fix the broken police system while wooing a bunch of muscled anime men? Then Collar X Malice is the game for you.
As a sniper police prodigy, you must do things the right way (sort of) to hunt down and stop rogue vigilantes from sending out their own twisted sense of justice.
Amidst all the angst and romance, you’ll be confronted with real-world issues regarding how we perceive and treat the police, which are very important topics to consider.
Nurse Love Addiction
This game is pretty much what it says on the tin. You play as a kind-hearted girl who is not the brightest and you will try to seduce the other nurses in the school.
However, you can’t just focus on your social life, as you will need to complete your education to get your nursing degree.
If you’re looking for a game that focuses on lesbian love without straying into pure porn territory, this is the romance game for you.
Another harem game, Muv Luv is a series of three games that will have you discovering secret intrigues and eventually facing a huge alien threat to your planet.
That said, you’ll still have plenty of time for romantic action, as your classmates are ready to pounce on you with the slightest provocation. That said, romances can get extremely heartfelt and women are written in an engaging way.
If you want weird, then you got weird with Hatoful Boyfriend. For one thing, all romantic partners, and indeed everyone but you, are birds.
It’s ironic about that, but at the end of the day, you’re romancing a bunch of birds. The narrative branches out significantly depending on your choices, and like any good game, it can end with a fight against a God despised for unclear reasons.
