Game characters who would make disastrous dates from Hell

Nothing screams romance and 'too cheap to spring for dinner' than a quiet stroll in the park. Not only do you get some exercise, but if you're really lucky, you might even get a cheeky fondle in some shrubbery.

Naturally, if your date just happens to be Nintendo royalty that keeps getting kidnapped by big-ass, jealous dinosaurs every 15 minutes, well, we'd probably just give that whole 'dying alone thing' one more go...

Going to the cinema on a first date is always a safe bet. You don't have to talk to each other much, you get towatch that horror film you've been gagging to see and you can nick loads ofher popcorn when she'shaving a mini panic attack during an onscreen evisceration. Just a word of warning, though. Best to check your date isn't the sweariest person alive before you take your seats...

In Agent Washington's defence, his nerves are probably frayed to shit after all those hundreds of zombies trying to rip out his jugular.

If Chris Hansen and To Catch a Predator have taught us anything, other than watching sex-offenders squirm is worryingly entertaining, it's you should never hook up with someone you meet online...
