Has it been a year already? Right. So February is here again and with it comes another opportunity to spectacularly fail at finishing 4 games. But I won't feel too bad about it because, for me, it isn't so much the finishing as it is the participating that makes 4IF so fun! So which 4 will I be half-heartedly trying to get through this year?
There aren't enough interesting games about people and the most intimate way they can spend their time: in a relationship. Very often, games are peripherally aware that people get together and very often, those steps toward getting together are sometimes charted in fumbling missteps that lead to pixelated lovemaking. It's often pretty vapid and uninteresting. It's also completely misrepresented.
Very often, the lady/man is at the end of the quest. Something to be won.
Sometimes, the lady/man is up front and you play the bad innuendo game all the way through.
But mostly, games want us to feel lust for the lady/man we're after. They're beautiful and sometimes eager and they feel no shame in being objects.

Today I met this really cute girl Emily while waiting in line at McD and while I’m not planning on sharing many details about my private life, let’s just say I am THE MAN! We have a date on Valentine’s Day, which is about as cheesy as it can get, and I’m planning on making this a night to remember. Only issue: it’s been ages since I’ve been with a girl and I’ve never been on something that can be classified as a traditional date. Yes, I have quite a bit of catching up to do and what better way is there than using the medium of video games for it. Welcome to my Valentine’s Day Boot camp Diary, aka. Games to play on (or better before) Valentine’s Day.
