Feel like celebrating Valentine's Day in front of a video game? This Valentine's Day, why not combine fun and video game experiences? It's a great alternative to going out, especially if you're both inveterate gamers looking for new sensations, this time for two.
Gaming for two, as lovers, is an opportunity to share something... A moment, a complicity, even to challenge each other for those who like to spice up their lives. A possibility that few games offer today, developing mainly adventures to be discovered solo... But that hasn't stopped some studios from turning to pair-play, offering a new vision of gameplay for two.
And for those who are unsure of what universe to immerse themselves in on consoles or PC with their loved one, the Sortiraparis editorial team has put together a selection of games for you to discover together, for a fun and intense moment, joysticks in hand. Happy gaming and, above all, happy Valentine's Day!
