To kick things off let’s start with a game that you normally wouldn’t play with another person seeing as how it is primarily a single player affair. But, it can be argued that Catherine, developed by Atlus games, is a great game to watch. It has beautiful visuals, amazing gameplay, and some top notch writing. So it would be great to cuddle up on the couch under a warm blanket as you dive in with your valentine eagerly watching, right?
Well…no, it turns out that it might not be such a great idea after all. Why? Well take a look at the story. You play as Vincent Brooks, a two-timing, commitment fearing dude who cheats on his girlfriend with another woman that has the same name (with a different spelling). What ensues is one of the weirdest dramas that places you into horrific dreamworlds forcing you to climb for your life as you decide who you want to spend the rest of your life with. While not in one of these hellish dreams, you can have some drinks and exchange some dirty texts if you so choose, which is probably not something you want your significant other watching.
Valentine’s Day is a day of love, where two (or more if that’s what you’re into) people dedicate the day to one another. The last thing anyone wants to see is their significant other play a game where they cheat on their lover and toy with the options presented to them. It might just remind them of that one time you were at the mall and happened to look at that attractive individual walking by…some things are better left forgotten.
