Best PC Gaming Date Ideas for Valentine's Day 2022
February 10, 2022
1) Dress for the Date You Want
Before any gaming-related date, it’s important to get comfortable. Your couch, or desk, is not the local steakhouse. So throw on those sweatpants, take off the makeup, and grab the most comfortable blanket in arm’s reach – your cat probably won’t judge.
2) Play a Creative Co-Op Classic
In an era where couch co-op seems like a dying genre, looking at you Halo, it’s exciting to see a game like “It Takes Two” come out. Winner of Steam’s 2021 “Better With Friends Award,” you’re sure to have a blast together. Plus, it lets you ride frogs like little horsies, what else could you want?
3) Take the Backseat
Sometimes it’s fun just watching someone else experience a game for the first time. If you have one in mind that truly blew you away, let them give it a shot. You can just sit back, sip your drink, and smile knowing they’re about to walk into that same trap you’d fallen for.
4) Do a Double Date
You and your partner have been playing Jackbox trivia for months now. Why not show off your skills? Invite other couples for an evening of games, drinks, and absolute domination when you’re the only ones who know the capital of Zimbabwe. Harare... It’s Harare.
5) For the Hopeless Romantic
