It’s tough when you’re looking for a date. You want to be interested aesthetically, but also want to find someone with strong values and a fun personality. People don’t often tick all the boxes and we know that finding love takes compromises… But wouldn’t it be easier if everyone was as well rounded and interesting as our favourite game characters? Here are our six most dateable gaming characters.
Lara Croft (Tomb Raider Series)
Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening with the infamous tomb raider herself? Not only is she known for her natural good looks, but she’s got plenty of intellect to keep any conversation flowing. We’d never pass up on an action-packed date with her.
Lee Everett (The Walking Dead – Telltale)
Lee had his flaws and secrets. A runaway convict might not be the best date in some respects, but he had strong morals, was devoted to little Clementine, and proved himself to have the heart of hero… If you make the right choices in the game of course.
Aloy (Horizon: Zero Dawn)
Strong willed and determined, with an unbreakable heart; Aloy went through a lot, but came out the other side stronger than ever. We think she would be the perfect date if you’re looking for a commitment that would keep you on your toes. Plus, she’s a redhead!
Link (The Zelda Series)
Everyone who games knows that Link is one of the classic loyal and caring characters. His dedication to saving the princess time and time again makes us think he’d be an amazing partner.
Rosalina (Mario Series)
Rosalina is a powerful and mysterious sorceress, and yet she chooses to spend her time protecting her adopted children and racing around on her motorbike. Sounds like the perfect combination of love and adventure that would be ridiculous to overlook!
Ratonhnhaké:ton aka Connor (Assassins Creed III)
The only assassin in the series to have never harmed a civilian and he sticks to his own morals. We think that Connor’s dedication and empathy is what makes him one of our favourites from the series, and certainly the most datable.
