Choose which Platform:

Valentine’s Day is not too far away. Love is in the air, and gamers are scrambling to find the perfect gift for their partner(s). So this year I thought, why not give cupid the month off? Wield the bow and heart-shaped arrow, spark some affection between a lucky bachelor and bachelorette, maybe a secret admirer and help them Take their Heart. It’s a Persona 5 Strikers inspired Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, with a litany of video games and gaming accessories recommended to leave that special someone lovestruck.

We may be dry on the next gen front, but it doesn’t mean you can’t show your better half that you love them with a little something special on the side. I mean a game, get your mind out of the gutter. So dump those Roses, throw away that box of Cadbury Choccies, wash off the lickable chocolate and put away the contraceptives. The DashGamer Valentine’s Day Gaming Gift Guide ensures a sultry and satisfying day for all lovers.
