Since there is such a good topic about this going on - I highly encourage anyone to post on it if they have not yet - how about if we go the opposite route? What are some of the worst love stories you have seen attempted in a game, whether it was done poorly, was forced, contrived, etc?


You came up with a good idea,I also support this topic. I think FF7 left a bad taste in my mouth,it's obvious that Cloud and Tifa love each other.....

I thought of another one that really stood out for its badness.

Brave Story New Traveler for PSP


The entire game is spent building up a love story that just dies at the end. It doesn't end tragically or anything, it's just abruptly forgotten at the very end with no closure. Its ending seems like something that should have been a bad ending, except that there aren't any others.

The ending is just this character looking sad for a few minutes while the credits roll, but there's no indication that the other character cares in the slightest


Actually, Star Ocean 1 / First Departure is really terrible for this too. Games with relationship systems shouldn't force you into lame tragic endings that just make the whole thing seem pointless.

Sonic and Elise from Sonic 06.

They say that whoever watches the cutscene where they kiss and doesn't shake their head in disgust is the Antichrist.

The worst love I've ever seen in any game would have to be Emil and Marta's in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

Annoying girl clings to meek guy, meek guy retaliates in failure, guy comes to like girl despite all of her annoying, clingy qualities. -.-

Ezio and Christina in AC: Brotherhood. It was a REALLY pointless side story.

My favorite love story in games is MGS3 Snake Eater and how Ocelot develops a crush on Big Boss

I know a lot of people will disagree, but Final Fantasy X.

I think Square needs to stay away from writing romance plots.

Mario and Princess Peach

They have no chemistry, and he cannot keep Bowser from Kidnapping her

Not to mention the goddamn RIDICULOUS reason she fell in love with him. Ugh that game's entire plot was awful, even among other Tales of games >__>
