Games with romantic elements

Standard

Ok, I won’t lie: I’m a sucker for romance. I love it in books, in movies and yes, in video games. So I decided to compile a list of all the games I’ve played that have romantic elements to them.

The list!
Grim Fandango
Planescape: Torment
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (the original has a slight mention of romance too — but VERY slight)
Dreamfall: Chapters
The Last Story
Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic II
(albeit a bit subdued)
The Old Republic (every class has at least one romance for male/female. IMPERIAL AGENT FTW)
Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn
Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Baal (continuation of the BGII romances)
Neverwinter Nights
Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark
(also, you have TONS of NWN modules with romances in them)
Neverwinter Nights II
Neverwinter Nights II: Mask of the Betrayer
Final Fantasy X
Resident Evil II
Resident Evil: Code Veronica
Jade Empire
Mass Effect

Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 3
Transistor (which ended up with me crying like a baby)
To The Moon (also cried like a baby)
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
(I do believe there was a bit of romance there!)
StarCraft (undertones)
StarCraft II
(bit more obvious that in SC1)
Dragon Age
Dragon Age II
Dragon Age: Inquisition (plus follow-ups on the Trespasser DLC)
Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean
Baten Kaitos: Origins
Eternal Sonata
Brutal Legend
Full Throttle
Starfox Adventures
(essentially, romance for furries. But it’s sweet nonetheless)
Heavy Rain (BADLY DONE, imo)
Beyond: Two Souls (I personally disliked the game, but there’s a romance option in it, soooo)
Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Beyond Good and Evil
(Oh, come on, there was something there!)
The Darkness
Deadly Premonition
(and, I’m not joking, it’s AMAZING)
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (highly subdued and arguable, but still…)
L. A. Noire (not a lot, and it’s mostly off-screen)
Max Payne 2
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (one can argue about this one, though)
Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
Shadows of the Damned
Alan Wake
Sonic Adventure II: Battle
(yup… I played that)
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
The Witcher (
2 and 3 also. YEN IS MY WAIFU)
Saints Row IV (press R to Romance is my favorite thing ever)

And that’s all I can think of right now. If you have additions, please comment! I’d love to have a complete list of games with romance!
