What is the most convenient way to establish personal relationship during the time of social distancing? The answer is online dating. With all this restrictions it’s no wonder that according to Pewresearch, 30% of U.S. adults say they have used a dating site or app. How we conduct our relationships is changing, and it’s clear that online technology has a key part to play in this transformation. So let’s say you’ve signed up to askme4date dating platform, and after one or two false starts, you’ve finally clicked with one of the other site users. After developing a rapport by exchanging flirty messages, you’ve also been chatting about your favourite pastimes and discovered you both love gaming – a hobby shared by so many people these days! When the time comes to take your blossoming relationship into the real world with a face-to-face date, what better option than getting together over a PS4 console?! Here are our five top suggestions for your first date entertainment.
You don’t have to have any previous experience of this long-standing popular PS4 team, but if you have, all the better! This version has been rebooted for today’s audience and embodies much of the empowerment and hard-hitting elements of its predecessor. Here you and your date can reinvent yourself as protagonists involved in murderous sprees on a futuristic Mars colony that has become infected by demons. One particularly satisfying activity is the ability to unleash a ‘super shotgun’ that will blast your enemies to smithereens! Perhaps the visceral action, with innards flying across the screen, might not seem conducive with a first date. But the sheer exhilaration of getting involved in the ‘shoot em up’ action is perfect for bringing couples together. Most of all, Doom is tremendous fun!
Monster Hunter World
MonsterHunterWorld is another fabulously entertaining PS4 game that will have you and your partner enthralled. Beautifully rendered, once you have plowed through the sometimes laborious-looking tutorials (it is worth it to gain the full handle of the potential for play) you are in for an entertaining experience. There are so many weapons to choose from, and fabulous creatures to destroy. The ability to gather loot on your adventures can become addictive, but the best aspect of all is the gorgeous environments you will inhabit as you are outwitting your enemies.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
Wolfenstein gained praise from fans and critics alike when it was first released, and this upgrade is even more visually stunning. The environment, set in an alternative 1960s America that has become overrun by a totalitarian Nazi state, becomes an intriguing backdrop to the strong characterization and the captivating storylines. The combination of high-risk endeavors and creative vistas means you will never tire of this video game.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
A certain glamorous archaeologist needs few introductions. Since a buxom Lara Croft was unleashed on the gaming world back in the 1990s, this has become less a computer franchise and more an exhilarating byword for pixellated entertainment par excellence! What better way to build a bond with someone on your first date than taking advantage of Croft’s latest escapade? This time she is heading deep into Siberia to finish off her father’s work in the long-lost city of Kitezh. Along the way, there are fabulous wintry backdrops, while you will find the ziplining abilities of everyone’s favorite tomb raider providing a memorable highlight of your first date.
What date night would be complete without swinging through New York City via webs that you can sling from rooftop to rooftop to propel you across this fantastical landscape? This is an immensely enjoyable game that is perfect for your PlayStation entertainment. There is so much action involved, but the most captivating aspect is your ability to master Spider-Man’s ability to practically fly through the cityscapes in pursuit of various missions. Like so many Marvel outings, at the heart of this action lies a lot of self-deprecating humor.
