Happy Valentines Day, Romance in Video Games

As today is Valentines Day I would love to share few of my favorite romance sequence from video games.

8 bit heart

Prince of Persia (the original version that came out first on Apple II in 1989)

The story was you play as a the Prince and you kill the bad guy Jaffar, save the beautiful Princess and marry her. That’s what I call a perfect romantic story.

Here is a video of the game just in case you are too young to know which version of  Prince of Persia , I am talking about.

 

Super Mario Bros. (released in the year 1985, first released on NES)

You see I am a very good guy as the major part of my childhood was spend saving Mario’s girlfriend. How many people saves other persons girlfriend now a days?

Joking apart perhaps the game Super Mario Bros was one of the most famous game in the history of gaming.  The game play was simple you play as the character Mario and you go from one castle to another castle overcoming obstacles and killing enemies in your path and save the Princess Peach.
