    I'm really pleased To the Moon got recognition here. It's an absolutely beautiful game, and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in a game that will move you. Its story is lovely.

    Just finished To The Moon and I must say that it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever experienced. Definitely agree with the #1 choice!

    I completely disagree with Enslaved being on this list. At least... in the context you chose. I did see a burgeoning love between the two, but it was the love of a friend. I didn't see anything romantic about it at all.

    I think you forgot these: Shizune and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo Lilly and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo Hanako and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo Rin and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo Emi and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo Shizune, Misha and Hisao - Katawa Shoujo. And before anyone objects, Katawa Shoujo, a Visual Novel, is indeed a game. Upon playing it on release, it became my GOTY 2012. Because who the hell says that love is only for the abled people?

    i personally think one of the best ive seen is the one between sheppard and tali zorah in mass effect 2, which i hear continues on to mass effect 3. i like it cuz it evolves naturally(as she's been seriously crushing on him harcore since the first mass effect and he's had similar feelings too, but on the dl), u care about their plight with her being in her protective suit and the real possibility that she could become extremely sick if they even kiss, let alone if anything else happens wink, wink ;-), and then, lastly (!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!), when they finally "go for it" understand tali's shyness, reluctance and then the "aw, screw it" point that you find yourself laughing, crying,and cherring for them. you laugh again later on when sheppard speaks to her in the engine room when you think she could be complaining as she says her nose is running, she's coughing, and she has a fever, but then she laughs and says, "but it was worth it!" that my friends is a true, blieveable, and endearing romance from a video game. i think it should've been number 1, but hey what do i know, i'm just a noobie.

    What about Shenmue's Ryo and Nozomi? That was an epic love tale of doomed love with an almost shakespeare like FFS can't you see he likes you (Nozomi) and cant you see she likes you (Ryo.) On an even deeper level, the audience is left never knowing whether there is hope for them as they canned the franchise after Shenmue II leaving the whole scenario in a complete state of limbo!

    How could they forget Sly and Carmelita? Bentley and Penelope from the Sly Series?

  • braian-ascua - February 14, 2013 10:26 a.m.

    Uncharted is a great game just cause its not like modern gayfare does not mean its bad and it dose not have to be rated M to have over 200 awards for best game.

    I'm glad you're here because he needs you in order to keep commenting, and I love what he says.

    This article is proof that story telling and character development in games still have a ways to go in comparison to movies and books.
  • Sinsational - February 20, 2013 3:58 a.m.

    Video games have been around for about 30-40 years, and can already manage to tell a deep and complex character story rivaling books and movies. Films have been around for a little over a hundred years. The written word has been around for millenia. I'd say that games have a far superior advantage when coupled with the time it's taken for the media to evolve to it's current state.

    I know it probably isn't as natural as most on this list but Justin and Feena's relationship has always been my favourite. Always because it didn't just start out that they loved eachother, rather Justin idolised Feena to start with because of her status as a "Pro Adventurer". What made their relationship click with me was how similar it is to most people's relationships in real life, especially in the scene on the boat at the end of disc 1; Feena basically starting to properly open her heart to him and him being completely oblivious as to what she actually felt for him :'), even before then halfway through disc 1 during the collapse of Typhoon Tower her feelings for Justin were starting to become more genuine, because well let's be honest who goes out of their way to slap a guy for making you think they had died if they hadn't started to fall in love with them :P?

    What about Solid Snake and Meryl from Metal Gear Solid?
  • TheDudeFromNowhere - February 12, 2013 9:21 a.m.

    I have to try out To The Moon. We'll see if it makes me cry.
  • Nomado - February 13, 2013 12:38 a.m.

    Definetly. So emotional experience. Only lasts 4 hour kinda short, but you will spend weeks thinking about this game. No wonder Gamespot named it best plot of the year it was released.

    I've always thought that Wander was not in a relationship with the girl. Unless information was revealed later that game is scarce with the details. I always imagined that he did something to cause her death and was doing it to repent for what he had done. Perhaps some kind of initiation into the organization that was chasing him for stealing their sword. The fact that she is apprehensive and doesn't recognize Agro at the end of the game implies she may never have known "Wander." I mean the relationship between them and the skill that he has with the horse means he has been using that horse for years and if she saw her love's horse I would think it would evoke a different reaction then fear and curiosity. At the end she seems happy to be alive but none the wiser about her "love."

    They are not lovers. I don't know what they're doing here.
