Posts tagged with "valentines day"
Valentines day isn't really celebrated in video games that much I have noticed. Whenever Peach has baked Mario one of her cakes, she never mentioned it was valentines day. In fact, the only game I know of that does something special is the Animal Crossing series of games. If you are playing "City Folk" or "Let's Go To The City" on Wii on Valentines day, one of your neighbors of the opposite gender, who has the best friendship stats will bring you a Chocolate Heart when you first leave your house! They will even talk to you about your special friendship! How Cute! Then if you decide to visit Brewsters Cafe, he will hook you up with some special Hot Chocolate instead of "The Usual" coffee you get.
This has got me thinking about love in video games. I have noticed a lot of violence, paranoia, stress, and fear in video games, and while simple love and adoration is present, it is an emotion that is sort of on a back-burner when it comes to games. I wonder why that is, and would like to get feedback from you, the readers on this. What games do you think present love as more than a simple reason to rescue the princess, which games touch on this emotion more than others. For me, Animal Crossing is all about friendship and close bonds, but I think the Legend of Zelda series portrays love in the strongest light. Link and his connections with the people he lives around, like Saria or his sister from Wind Waker.
Please tell me your thoughts!
