Any adventure becomes more interesting with a little love. Or maybe a lot, because it all depends on the game.
In this rating, we have collected the most interesting titles in the RPG genre, since it is here that gamers are given the greatest freedom of choice. And in this case, it is not the number of novels that matters, but the depth of elaboration of the system of relations.
Stardew Valley (2016)
Simulation fans know that Eric “ConcernedApe” Baron devoted a huge amount of time and effort to building a good farm simulator – Stardew Valley. At the end of the day, this open-world RPG allows players to manage their own farm however they want:
- create goods;
- raise livestock and crops;
- fight monsters in mines;
- even marry and raise children.
And while Stardew Valley has an incredibly deep modeling system, its romantic mechanics aren’t straightforward either.
As with regular dating simulators, players can develop relationships with a huge number of NPCs. However, as their relationship with a character deepens, players also engage in exclusive side quests related to that character. Each NPC has unique storylinewhich adds depth to the colorful city of Stardew Valley, and it makes the gameplay more lively than playing conventional simulations.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 (2017)
Developers from Larian Studios have done an excellent job of incorporating complex storytelling into the vast interactive world in Divinity: Original Sin 2. In this story, six characters travel the world of Rivellon to achieve Divinity by fulfilling their personal plans. Unfortunately, despite forming deep bonds of friendship, they end up having to choose between their humanity and strength in order to change Rivellon.
Fans already love Original Sin 2 for its deep dialogue and plot… However, the game is also appreciated for being slow to form romances between characters that interact with each other.
While there is only one canon love story throughout the plot, potential events between other characters can create memorable stories in every playthrough.
Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014)
If not BioWare, then the novels in video games have never been what they are now. Fortunately, Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014) easily fulfills any player’s wishes for meaningful romance in games. In the third part of Dragon Age, players take on the role of the inquisitor on a civil unrest mission in Thedas.
However, the Inquisitor soon becomes involved in a conspiracy to close the Gap in the sky through which the demons are breaking through.
In addition to dynamic battles, players can appreciate the increased attention to interaction with the outside world:
- the protagonist can expand the ranks of the Inquisition by accepting different NPS
- the decisions made have consequences for the world of Thedas, nothing will be left without attention
In addition, the Inquisitor can have up to nine companions, with eight of whom can be romantically involved in the course of the main campaign.
PS do not consider the author a bore, but I still liked the romantic lines in the first part of DA. Choosing between the kind and sweet Leliana or the daring and mysterious Morrigan was not easy.
Mass Effect 2 (2010)
Mass Effect 2 from BioWare practically asks the question: who said there is no place for romance in games with aliens? In this sequel to Mass Effect, Commander Shepard must win the loyalty of a ragtag team of adventurers and adventurers on a suicidal mission to stop the Collectors from full-scale invasion…
The developers keep the level in terms of dynamic skirmishes and deep character customization.
Where Mass Effect 2 really excels, however, is in the morale and dialogue system. The game provides many options for dialogue, which has already become one of the main features of BioWare.
Dialogue can affect mission rewards, discounts, general morale, and even potential romance. It will be difficult for players to decide who will become the object of their love interest, because each companion has a unique and deep story.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015)
Despite the fact that this is a direct sequel to the second part of the game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes players on a completely different journey to save the world along with the famous witcher Geralt of Rivia. Fans of the series admire The Wild Hunt for its multifaceted storyline and combat mechanics, which have been transformed for the better compared to its predecessor. However, what the game really admires is its deep dialogues and meaningful romantic choices.
Although Yennefer of Vengerberg and Triss Merigold are important parts of Geralt’s past, the Witcher can have an affair with seven other girls with different backgrounds and backgrounds. Moreover, fans liked that none of these stories were ignored by the writers. Even if players choose someone instead of Yennefer and Triss, fantastic love stories await them that show Geralt’s hidden desire for an ordinary life.
