T he sky of lovers is always blue: here are the best games for a Valentine’s Day in blue, to play together (and not) on PS4 and PS5
On the occasion of Saint Valentinewe are dedicating three different top ten to ai better games of each console: in this ranking we will dedicate ourselves to the best that PS4 and PS5 they have to offer. We will review a bit of everything: exclusive, indie and cross-platform titles, but with an eye to two characteristics in particular. In fact, we will try to dedicate the right amount of space to games that they talk about love or who in any case boast remarkable love stories. Alternatively, as always, there’s the dear old man co-op: the possibility of teaming up with those close to you, and which (trust me) is a real training for couple harmony.
Issue 10: Don’t Starve Together – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
If “in health or in sickness” leads you to pray, know that avoiding starvation is, in its way, romantic enough to give Don’t Starve Together the tenth place among the best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day. Sustaining yourself amid adversity can temper even the less close-knit couples, and if at least one of you is a Tim Burton-style aesthetic addict, you’ve found a perfect pastime for Valentine’s Day. And if, between one hunting trip (for monsters and horrors) and another, you also find the time to feed your languor with chocolates, so much the better!
Issue 9: Persona 5 – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
Single player games wouldn’t particularly fit into this list, but there are cases like Persona 5 which are always valid exceptions. The role-playing game by Atlus and SEGA, now available in Italian in the Royal re-edition, talks about love in many different ways. The most pranksters among you would rather have expected Catherine to peep, but let’s face it: that game is more about horns (even literally) than anything else. Here instead you will be able to find love among as many possible candidates, and in the meantime heal the hearts of the perverse to build a better world. The Phantom Thieves will steal your heart!
Issue 8: Spider-Man Remastered – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
The undersigned, as he already said when talking about himself a few articles ago, loves video games as much as other forms of entertainment. One of them is the ninth art, or comics. As a fan of Spider-Man that he is, the writer cannot help but advise you Spider-Man Remastered as one of the few media outlets to cover the love between Peter and Mary-Jane since the comic story Just Another Day blew it all away. Not only is the game the undisputed crowning glory of development team Insomniac Games in their takeover of the open-world; it also hosts one of the last cameos of the late Stan Lee, who gave voice to his desire to be able to see together the Romeo and Juliet of contemporary culture. little tear.
Issue 7: LittleBigPlanet 3 – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
What’s better than a nice soft toy to give to your sweet half? Sackboy might not be the most conventionally cute ragdoll, but LittleBigPlanet 3 he never ceases to exude charm and to express it through those adorable little black eyes. For this incarnation, the franchise passes from the expert hands of Media Molecule to the creative forge of Sumo Digital, but the result is the same: a world (indeed, our world) of level design ideas to be tackled together. If you are in a “we will face the whole world together” relationship, the co-op of this inexhaustible level editor is the one for you.
Issue 6: The Last of Us Part II – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
If the television adaptation of a series that Naughty Dog has conceived (let’s face it) more for TV than for consoles is for you, enjoy it under the covers with a cup of hot chocolate. But if love without borders seen in The Last of Us Part II is such as to put a controller in your hands we are even happier. (This is what the top model is talking about, right?) We weren’t talking about “love without borders” by chance: the desperate conditions in which humanity finds itself in the most cinematographic videogame saga from Sony can make any couple more solid, as Ellie teach us and Dinah.
Issue 5: Overcooked: All you can eat – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
Have you ever worked in catering? The writer must also raise his hand in response to his own question, and can confirm that the heart-pounding gameplay loop of Overcooked: All you can eat it is a 100% faithful representation of the kitchen interior. The orders arrive one after the other, and you need a lot, a lot of understanding if you want to divide the tasks in an ideal way. The most attentive among you will remember that the undersigned reviewed the game on a different platform, but fear not: even on Sony’s home consoles it is possible to face together the razor sharp air that can be breathed behind a counter.
Issue 4: Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
A co-op game that’s (partly) also a love story? Where should we sign? For the refined palate of the cobalt titan loyalists, it is possible that Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove does not fit the photorealistic standards of the rest of the schedule. However, this triumph of nostalgia for the 8-bit era is entirely (or at least, as far as the basic adventure, Shovel of Hope is concerned) usable in co-op. Not only that, as exclusive content to Sony consoles there is a secret battle with Kratos from God of War, as an optional boss. What’s better than hitting him on the teeth? Do it in company, but it’s obvious!
Issue 3: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
Even outside of the romantic context, we can hardly think of a more close-knit videogame couple than a certain lombax and his robotic companion. In their debut on next-gen platforms, the two sparkle despite being at the center of an unsolicited quadrille. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart teaches us that there is no multiversal gap capable of keeping us truly separated from the people who are dearest to us. And this goes both for Ratchet while Clank is in the company of Rivet, and for Kit as he replaces the second, on the back of the first, while trying to come back with the third… in short, we understood each other.
Number 2: MultiVersus – The best PS4 and PS5 games for Valentine’s Day
In another of today’s rankings we talked about Garnet, who in the modern animated masterpiece Steven Universe is a very literal union of two entities who are madly in love. And what more could you ask for in a game like MultiVersus, other than making Garnet a roster item? How about an answer to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that makes two-on-two matches the default option? Your harmony as a couple will be put to the test by online matchmaking, but you will come out as winners… provided that, again quoting the phenomenal series, there is “only love in you”. And the winner is…
Numero 1: Kingdom Hearts: All-in-One Package/The Story so Far
We had to find a place in our top three for the crossover between Disney and Square-Enix. And since there’s the option to own the entire saga with one purchase, it’s Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Package (or even just The Story so Far, in the trailer below, which excludes III) to conquer the gold medal of love. Because, as the end credits of 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue remind us, this is the main theme of the series: love, in all its forms. The heart will guide us to the most remote corners of the multiverse, like a key capable of opening any door. And isn’t our better half the key to our heart? Happy Valentine’s Day, lovebirds!
