I have to admit I’m not a big fan of romance in games, at least not when it involves me as a player. No, I didn’t romance anyone in the Mass Effect series, nor in any other game I have played recently. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not opposed to some fun, given the right situation, but for me there has to be a person on the other side. Romancing an NPC feels equivalent to romancing a blow up doll, so not my cup of tea.
That being said, I don’t mind romance happening in the world, in fact Edi and Joker from Mass Effect 3 were a happy pet project of mine. I shall not delve into the psychology of a person falling for a robot or a robot having girly doubts. It’s love, let them be happy.
But they aren’t my first choice. That honor goes to Zelda and Link.
Their fates are so intertwined that they are destined to reunite in every incarnation and defend the world from evil. Nothing says we belong together quite as much as a combined destiny for all of time.
