Top 6 Best Video Games for an Unconventional Date Night

For many courting couples getting connected via a dating website like this, when it comes round to planning a date night, the possibilities will tend to follow a familiar, conventional pattern. A table in a restaurant. A scenic picnic. A trip to the movies. But for others, there is far more excitement in arranging a more unconventional date night. Video games might not be the subject which immediately springs to mind when people are thinking of date night activities, but this form of leisure activity is growing in popularity all the time, with new releases gaining more interest than Hollywood blockbusters. Here are six of the best video games

Terraria

This is perfect for you and your partner to indulge in last thing at night. The whole scenario is centered on yourselves being the final two humans on the planet. With this in mind, you will be instantly transported from your bedroom into some secluded spot with only a blanket and the endless majesty of stars above. This is one game which may be unconventional, but it will certainly appeal to your partner’s more sensitive side. The game itself is very straightforward; there is no outright goal but you can get involved in a series of diverting tasks.

Until Dawn

Horror videos are not always seen as conventional activities for date night. However, there is nothing quite like injecting your relationship with a jolt of adrenaline, courtesy of the dopamine your brain will release when you feel naturally terrorized! This can become an addictive experience (along the same lines of riding a rollercoaster.) So instead of getting strapped into a cab, you can face a succession of jump scares as you evade a masked madman.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

When Lara Croft first hit the games market in the 90s, she swiftly gained a legion of followers, especially amongst teenage boys who were drawn to her disproportionately top-heavy curves and feisty outlook. Things have moved on, and the more ‘anatomically accurate’ present incarnation of this archaeologist-with-attitude is ideal for an unconventional date night. This is entertaining and thought-provoking game will have you going back for more.

Codenames

The beauty of this particular unconventional video game is in its simplicity. It is a tabletop exercise which is all about sussing out participants’ expertise at connecting dots, as well as gauging their ability to connect on an almost telepathic level. The result? Frustration, satisfaction, but most importantly of all, a great deal of laughter.

Overcooked

This video game centers on one to four chefs, so it is ideal for a couple to participate in. Your characters travel around the world mastering various tyopes of culinary expertise. To make matters more interesting, Onion Kingdom’s life is on the line, so you have to get up to speed with your cooking skills, and do so quickly. You’ll be working in split kitchens on parallel moving trucks, not to mention having to endure animals sneaking inside to help themselves to your dishes. This is a fantastically unconventional game for your date night.

The Walking Dead

A romantically-inclined couple seeking some light entertainment via their consoles? Zombies? Gore? It might seem like one of the most unconventional ways of spending your time together, but there is something invigorating and intense about pooling your resources to battle these pesky walking corpses. One excellent aspect of this video game is that, similarly to the TV series, combatants are faced with moral choices at key junctures. Whoever thought blowing zombies brains out would ever be classified as a cerebral experience?
