[52 Weeks Challenge] Week 12 – Best game couple

Hello everybody,

Tired of the 30 days game challenge? Enjoy my own personal revisitation of a classic challenge! Instead of 30 daily posts that fill an entire month, this challenge is more diluted in time and it will cover all the year 2018. 52 weeks, 52 questions to understand who’s the person behind this blog. Me!

Week 12 – Best game couple

I want to do something different today, as always. I’ve read a lot of answers to this question in other challenges during last months and most of times I’ve read about couples of modern games or something related to Final Fantasy or other RPGs. So I want to differentiate from others mainly for two reasons: first thing first I’ve barely played modern games and second I’ve never played so many games in which there were actual couples.

So my answer is a bit strange even because we’re not talking about a real couple but let’s say a duo. As you may know I’m a huge Spectrum fan so my answer will be probably strange and unknown to the non-european readers.

So the best couple is…Head and Heels from Head Over Heels! 🙂

I told you this was an odd choice but I’ve played a lot this game lately and this duo has more to share that a “normal” couple. When they’re separate, Head and Heels have each one its specific abilities but when they’re together they become one and they help each others gaining more skills and becoming able to do things otherwise impossible.

What is your choice for the best video game couple?

  1. I nominate Batman and Robin from Lego Batman. The Lego games requires cooperation between players. The game are very good at encouraging trust and a sense of teamwork between the players as both players need to help each other to proceed. Because the Lego Batman games force the players to either play as Batman and Robin throughout the game, it means these two characters complete the entire story and one player cannot complete it themselves. This means Batman and Robin work as an effective team throughout the game.
    How is Head over Heels played? Is it a 2-player cooperative game?

    Wow, I’ve never heard of this one! That’s why I love your blog so much; I’m always finding new stuff to check out.

    I went with Jak & Daxter. Does that count? Not really two player co-op gameplay, but good character interaction between the characters.

      Thanks a lot! 🙂 Everything counts 🙂 My girlfriend’s brothers are playing a hell of Jak & Daxter, the PS4 version. Looks interesting but I’m still not ready to play games on the PS4 🙂 🙂 🙂

        I haven’t played it on the PS4, but I do have the first three on the PS2 and you should be able to find them for a few bucks!
