Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, Video Game Characters, Would You Date Them Too?

Let’s admit it, we all though about it at least once.

Today is February 14 and yes, love is in the air. For some, it is an important day where you get to show your love and affection towards your better half. For others, it’s just an excuse to spend some money on frivolous items that will end up consumed or even forgotten.

For most of us men, women are mysterious creatures believed to be able to cast dangerous spells of enticement – I personally feel as though they can lure you into troubles beyond expectation. But in the end, us gamers can end up surrounded by one of three type of ladies: the girlfriend gamer, the platonic support, or the virtual dream. If you could date a video game characters, who would you ask out?

 

Zelda Princess Date

Zelda, Princess of Hyrule

Princess Zelda (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Princess Zelda, is an important female figure in gaming history and embodies royalty, finesse and elegance with perfection. Capable of fighting along your side to some extend, Zelda knows right from wrong, has immaculate kindness and, as holder of the Triforce of Wisdom, has enough knowledge to rule over any land.

As someone who has always been there for you, even as a child, Zelda deserves to be taken out in the classiest and most elegant restaurant known to men.

 

Sona League of Legends

Sona, the Maven of the Strings

Sona (League of Legends)

Sona, and I’m probably going to get reported for that, is silent – literally – so not much nagging can be done. It is sad to say, but most men talk on their loved one’s back, and the number one reason is…nagging. Well, as the quiet type, Sona still has a strong personally and good looks. Renown as being a musical prodigy, she can play her strings and make you fall for her in a heartbeat. Caution, however, as she uses her most beloved instrument as a deadly weapon.

Ideally, and we can thank Riot Games for that, Sona is a DJ – with the DJ Sona skin of course – and can play some of the best EDM tracks to stir up a crowd. A Club is not a bad place to take a party girl!

 

Cassie Cage Date

Special Forces Sergeant, Cassie Cage

Cassie Cage (Mortal Kombat X)

Introduced in the latest Mortal Kombat game, Cassie Cage is a blonde, bad-mouthed brat fighter trained by her parents, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, to lead her own Special Forces team. Although she demonstrates a rough exterior and confidence, she still has some mommy and daddy issues to work on. She is fit, has attitude and most importantly, can easily fight for you.

A perfect date with Cassie Cage sounds impossible, but surprising her with a gym run is not a bad way to break the ice with this cold queen. As a bonus, her family are skilled fighters as well, so you can be sure no one would ever pick on you!

 

Jinx League of Legends

Jinx (League of Legends)

Jinx is, well, Jinx. She is impulsive, unpredictable, and has a quality many men don’t want to admit finding attractive… she is crazy. As a matter of a fact, crazy isn’t even enough to express it – Jinx is a machine gun and rocket launcher wielding psychopath. She hates being bored and loves blowing things up. The more mayhem and panic, the larger the smile on her face.

Jinx isn’t the type of girl that you can take anywhere. Instead, she will be the one taking you places and hopefully, you can keep up. If you do, you are guaranteed to have an explosive afternoon!

 

Nurse Joy

Pokemon Center Lady, Nurse Joy

Nurse Joy (Pokemon)

Despite some claims, Nurse Joy isn’t a single person; there are more than one Joy, all of which strongly resembles one another. Regardless of which one you want to ask out, they all share the same traits – they are kind, honest and will never charge you or ask you for any kind of payments. As a nurse, her job is to take care of your Pokemon, which shows how dedicated she is working with creatures.

To show her appreciation for her work, taking her to the Zoo or Safari would be one of the best options here. As long as you don’t mistake one of her relatives for her, you shouldn’t have any trouble winning her heart.

 

Bayonetta Date

Bayonetta, The Wicked

Bayonetta (Bayonetta)

Bayonetta, also known as Cereza, is a female protagonist from the series that shares her name. As an Umbran Witch, she is capable of summoning strong abilities that would put many to shame. However, despite it all, she embodies sexuality and the feminine image. The former having brought upon her criticism and controversy. She is desirous, style savvy and definitely handy to have around.

Unlike Zelda, who should be taken to the classiest restaurant, Bayonetta deserves nothing less than the most exquisite and expensive of dinners. Ending the night at some local demonic bar will get you extra points!

 

Of course, there are a lot more female characters to choose from such as Lara Croft, Samus Aran, Yuna, Tifa, Sarah Kerrigan, Cortana…the list goes on. So on this Saint-Valentine’s day, who would you have asked out and where would you have taken them on a date?
