When it comes to romance in video games, for me, it has to strike a nerve. Sometimes, I’ll admit, my gameplay is driven by trying to keep two lovers together. Matter of fact, I chose the romantic ending in Beyond: Two Souls so that Jodie and Ryan would end up together. I’m a secret massive romantic and yes, sometimes it drives my gaming decisions. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I felt it was appropriate to rank some of my favorite top romantic moments in video games.

4. Cloud And Aerith Meet Again In Kingdom Hearts II
Every diehard Final Fantasy fan knows the tragic story of Cloud and Aerith. I’m not even a huge Final Fantasy fan and I know that story, only because it’s one of the saddest in video game history. Cloud lost Aerith in Final Fantasy VII, so when they met again in Kingdom Hearts II, fans’ hearts skipped a beat. The hints shown in the video of Cloud’s shock of seeing Aerith again are subtle and discreet, but true Final Fantasy fans understand how much Aerith meant to Cloud and why this defining moment in Kingdom Hearts II matters so much. When you think about how much Cloud and Aerith have been through together, and you see them reunited, you can’t help but feel so relieved for just a moment. And so happy.
