You wouldn't be reading this and I wouldn't be writing this if gaming wasn't an important (or at least enjoyable) part of our lives. However, I've found that being in a relationship significantly reduces the amount of time I spend playing games; that's not a complaint, just a fact. I like spending time doing social things and gladly decrease my video game time to do them. However, there are times when I'd like to game and I often struggle when it comes to sharing this hobby with my girlfriend.
My experiences have been limited, but for the most part, I've found that cooperative multiplayer is vastly superior to competitive play. This is because my girlfriend does not play many video games and gets understandably frustrated when facing someone with much more experience than her. I've also found that simpler is better, as complicated controller layouts are often a recipe for disaster. The LEGO series and social games, such as Rock Band, have been a great starting point, but I'd like to find even more enjoyable couples experiences.
So I pose a question to you, my friends: What games do you like to play with your significant other?
