What is the "Greatest Love Story Ever Told" of videogames?
What is the "Greatest Love Story Ever Told" of videogames?
It sure as "hell" isn't Nier: Automata, you fricking teenager or near teenager.
ore no imouto
This is the only love story I can think of in a game that made me feel anything. So I guess that's my choice.
Silent Hill 2.
It's not even a love story
Why the fuck is hell in quotes?
Squall + Rinoa is up there.
The bar for good love stories in videogames is pretty damn low. Nier Automata's is good. I also liked the character development involved in pursuing Morrigan in DA:O.
Monster Girl Quest Part 2
Farah and Prince really did feel charming. Very snappy dialogue like they were already a old married couple but still felt like they kept getting closer and closer.
Also a bit sexist but hey, what can you do. It’s old times and Prince is an asshole for most of the games.
Hell naw, Rinoa a thot
What was sexist about it?
Not sexist itself but I remember quite a few comments prince would make. Nothing too serious, probably more throwaway lines then anything else
unironically Super Paper Mario.
Blumiere nearly whiped the mario multiverse trying to get his finceé back
Women love that though, I should know it worked on your mum.
I think the sexism made sense in the context of the time period and how the Prince is royalty that expects a certain type of woman. It's very mild anyway and the Prince does regard Farah as a person that he genuinely falls in love with, not an object to be obtained.
I'm sure a bad feminist blogger could take all that context out and make it seem much worse than it is though.
Yeah, I went there
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Prompto x Noctis
I will never understand what people see in this pairing unless they are self inserting as Noctis because they really want to fuck Prompto.
Ok, not kidding now, I mean come on
Gears of war :^)
Indeed. Thank god for the internet not being a thing in 2003
I never lost to anyone but her because it felt like infidelity
Squall and Seifer had better chemistry than that vapid whore. Prove me wrong.
pyra growing out her hair
Please. My heart can’t take it.
Go "heck" yourself
Safiya and the player character.
, and also good choices.
Any couple that pulls off some Love Love Tenkyoken level shit is automatically top tier.
Pity it wasn't permanent
What games let me kill anime-looking robots?
The Bionic Commando game where his dead wife lives in his arm
Please delete this right now.
Fuck off, Ilias
Go to bed Ilias, you're drunk.
Why is she blue skinned but had a red lower body?
Takarasagashi no Natsuyasumi
Shapeshifter, and blue girls are cute
A boy and his blob
Also a bit sexist but hey, what can you do.
Going back to Tumblr is a good first step.
NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer
Oh calm down. It’s not something Ive held I’ve the game for having. Kinda was just a nice touch to prince’s character.
I though that Tails was a boy.
Squaresoft/Squareenix love story
everything with coconut
Not just Coconut. I love Chocola!
Coconut a top cute, though.
Or the other way around, yes,
Imagine those ice cold slushers pressing against your back...
Good taste, user.
Jim Raynor with Kerrigan.
this really really appealed to me.
it was so adorable.
VIII is unironically my favorite FF
but ffs I wish there was an option to romance someone else than this bitch
millenia is never actually barefoot in the game
Just kill me now.
more like Trap Sphere.
peter the rabbit and red little hood are fighting Wagner, the most terrific dragon know in the universe
Posting a favorite of mine
I wanna steer my mast into 9S's cove and drop anchor. I wanna pull a fuckin' treasure map out, lay it on his back, and follow the trail until I find the X that marks his spot, then whip out my steaming hot shovel and dig in. I wanna grab his chest and open up all over it.
Pic related is unironically up there. One of the few cases that did the obsessive muh waifu character well.
Super Paper Mario
tfw Noctis's true waifu was by his side the entire time
There isn't one. Videogames don't do love stories for some reason. Steins;Gate.
I need fanart of Legna and Angel bullying him.
You two should date.
THE greatest love story ever told.
fucking loser sits by himself
A pyromancer's flame is part of his body. When I gave you that flame I gave you a part of myself. Please take good care of it.
I keep hearing really good things about MOB. How much of the game do I actually have to play through to get MOB, or rather, do I have to play the original campaign?
annoying, clingy bitch with daddy issues who gets dumped, instantly finds a replacement, almost ruins multiple important missions then proceeds to assail Squall with her idiocy at every opportunity
Squall doesn't want anything to do with her for the first two discs in their entirety and she visibly annoys the fuck out of him
but the moment this bitch gets sorceress powers Squall becomes her loyal puppy out of nowhere
game actually expects to swallow the bullshit about their relationships being genuine when it's an obvious mind control from her side
Never ever, shipperfags.
It is said that Zullie the witch, who was never loved, nor loved another, experienced all manner of misfortune, and yet in the end, found her purpose in life
I fucking love Souls games.
It was literally the only NPC story from DS2 that Miyazaki himself seems to like.
Unfortunately being loved by Miyazaki means both of them met a tragic end.
ORIGINAL: Okay, here is a real shocking prospect. Before I tell you, you have to remember that Tails was originally going to be a girl (they changed it to a boy later). Anyway, this song is the music for Sonic 2 for the Genesis. But with lyrics. Now it just sounds... wrong... You'll see what I mean.
UPDATE (Feb 2016): Heh! I find this video's description hilarious now that I've come out as trans. I was such a dumb kid 8 years ago. I'll keep the old description up for posterity, I suppose.
2B/9S are the modern subversion of Romeo and Juliet, of course they are among the best love stories in the medium if not the best.
Romeo and Juliet is a garbage story about retarded, whiny and immature kids
Nier Tomato is the same
The game was good, but how can you actually type that out and believe any of it? It's not even Taro's best game.
He gave Lucatiel her remembrance, I'd say he liked her well enough.
It's not even Taro's best game.
It is, both in terms of fan reception and Taro's own opinion.
Opinion of a bunch of irrelevant hipsterfaggots doesn't concern anyone.
tfw no cute boy gf that looks like 9s
trashes Shakespeare to seem more mature
You don't have to play the OC. You can start MotB with a fresh new character.
But there are a few callbacks to the original and the best ending involves going back to your home, which was the setting of the OC. Playing the OC also makes you care a lot more about your character, I feel.
There's been one fag stalking threads that have anything to do with Nier only to put Automata on equal foot if not above every great works of art.
Dunno what's with him but at least it's somewhat entertaining.
user, you're like a walking definition of underage retard.
Not that user, but how can you justify Romeo and Juliet as a quality love story? Not judging it by the influence Shakespeare has had and how he's worshiped in pretty much every lit class until you're out of secondary and higher education, but by the quality of the play's own content and depiction of their romance.
Estelle/Joshua and Ries/Kevin were the last fully fleshed out romances between the main characters
we will never have them in Trails anymore, only the "bonding" bullshit which is even worse than Bioware garbage
Fan reception has no bearing on the quality of the game itself, nor does Taro considering he's deranged.
Also a bit sexist but hey
And as i said, opinion of a few irrelevant hipstershits is the most irrelevant thing out of them all.
Good to know you've started talking about yourself.
Came here to post this.
Also a bit sexist but hey, what can you do
stop injecting soy
No, i'm talking about the people throwing hissy fit about Automata being the best Taro game despite the fact it's a general consensus of players, critics and people who worked on the game including Taro himself who is not sure he will ever be able to top Automata now.
The calvard games will save us.
"John and his bitch" is up there
You're too optimistic, no chance in hell the series will get better after the damage coldsteel did to it.
Honestly it's a shame he didn't have the balls to make Wolnir the bearer of the curse. It would've been a great way to BTFO that idiotic DS2's statement that there's some "other way" of dealing with the curse.
absolutely no connection between them
says "nines" upon death
9s chimps out for the rest of the game
WE'RE READY TO SET SAIL THOUGH THE CANNONS NEED A PRIMIN'!
Monster Girl Quest. Its no contest
all this game
wasted in a too deep for you history
I´m not a teeneger anymore
what is kurt/juna
no mention of Shovel Knight
specially Plague Knight
you fucking weebs
oh look they've danced once
nice headcannon faggot
i love them too
Squall + Rinoa is up there.
that's like one of the worst FF Love stories, 15 only beats it in terms of worst love story of a FF game
Crossing my fingers for them.
The new matching outfits are pretty cute.
discount female Lloyd
discount Vander version of Joshua
VNs are vidya
Did she give him her thigh strap? That's pretty
You can say that their relationships ended up with a bang.
can i play this with my 3.60 vita? to lazy to update the explit
147 posts and apparently nobody ever played Dragon Quest IV
You don't have to play the OC, but you should, the memes that it's shit only apply to the first 1/3 of the game.
FUCKING DELETE THIS
fou lu did literally absolutely nothing wrong at all ever
He fell in love with a mortal.
Doesn't have to have a happy ending to be a love story. Doesn't have to be a successful one to be the greatest.
Whom he barely knew.
Spore: The Greatest Love Story Never Told
He actually spent some time in the village. A good number of events happened to Ryu in the meantime.
They're just friends, 9S is gay you doofus
"You're thinking about how much you want to **** 2B, aren't you?"
Clearly a homosexual.
It's fucking obvious retard
Yes, and then we're told that this literal god, who's mostly void of human feelings and contemptuous towards mortals, suddenly grew to love an illiterate country bumpkin because reasons. It's a terribly written "romance", user.
how old is dizzy again?
Thank god for the internet not being a thing in 2003
Do you mean it wasn't mainstream? Because it was definitely a thing, my 10 year old self looking up DBZ porn and my lust for women like android 18 is a testament to that
I mean I’m into the fact that Sol got his waifu back. Jack-O is/was pretty stellar though.
You know it's one of the most iconic for entirely decent reasons.
I mean the internet wasn’t a thing to the extent that the sjw’s would use to push their bullshit about anything and everything
Up until Mami he never had close personal relationships with humans. He was summoned to be a chinese god-emperor and that was his only goal in life until he was forced to rest. That's why having a taste of the common life and finally connecting with another human has fucked up him that much when he lost her.
Now she's like 8 or 9, I think.
indeed, its obvious that you are retarded.
They are literally the most hetero couple in the entire history of Taroverse other than Two/Cent and Octa/black holes.
romance in any vidya
You had her, lost her and do everything to get her back.
