Valentine’s Day is a day about love and showing that special someone how much you care. While diamonds and jewellery are on the lists of some, if your Valentine’s sweetheart is a gamer we’ve got a list of the best games to buy your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day.
Whether they game on Switch, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One—we’ve got a few game ideas to get them that will get their pulse racing.
Nintendo Switch games your Valentine will love
If your Valentine’s Day sweetheart loves to play in their Nintendo Switch, here are two game ideas that they will surely love you for getting them.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are amazing evolutions of the series and a perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Both games are excellent for comers as they are not too difficult. On the other hand, long-time veterans of the series will enjoy both games for their online battles and the end-game surprises.
The new generation of Pokémon are interesting and the Galar Region is artistically beautiful. Having sold over 16 million copies of the game in the first 6 weeks after release, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are as good as it gets for Pokémon fans.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
If your Valentine isn’t too keen on Pokémon, there is a good chance they are an Animal Crossing fan. A brand new game in the series is around the corner and I can’t think of a better Valentine’s Day gift to give your sweetheart than a pre-order for Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch.
Leave city life for a deserted island getaway where you’ll enjoy long walks on the beach, meet new characters, and craft just about everything under the sun. Better yet, Animal Crossing: New Horizons features local and online co-op gameplay. There is no doubt in my mind that New Horizons will be one of this year’s biggest games on Switch.
Valentine’s Day game gift ideas for PlayStation 4
Does your Valentine’s sweetheart love to play games on the PlayStation 4? Here are two games that will make your Valentine’s sweetheart fall head over heels in love.
From the creators of Little Big Planet and Tearaway comes Dreams. It’s been in early access for a little over a year and now the final version is coming to retail on Valentine’s Day.

Life is Strange 2 – Full Season
The full season of Life is Strange 2 is coming to retail in one package. If your Valentine loves playing narrative adventures that deals with real-world conversations where every choice you make helps shape your character and the outcome, they will love Life is Strange 2.
Think of Life is Strange 2 as an interactive TV show. The game is broken up into episodes, just like a TV series would be.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
There is no doubting the popularity of the Star Wars franchise. EA and Respawn Entertainment have created one of the most entertaining journeys in the Star Wars universe. If your Valentine is a Star Wars fan they will fall in love with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
There’s plenty of Star Wars lore, with nods to familiar concepts as well as deeper dives into new world-building. The game packs in the sense of discovery and adventure that fans of the franchise crave. The story is wonderful, the core gameplay is satisfying, and overall it feels a lot like the single-player Star Wars adventure many were hoping for.
