Agreed, any music game, Scene It!, You're In The Movies, and depending on the girl, LEGO games are typically good games to play with your gf.

We also play a lot of RPG's together, helping each other solve puzzles and look for secrets.

My gf loves fighting games like soul caliber and dead or alive. Occasionally she'll play Halo with me, and I could probably get her to play RE5 but I haven't really tried yet. I have a feeling she would love puzzle/adventure games like the lego games too.

04-19-2009, 08:53 PM
Beautiful Katamari Damacy is such a great game for couples, as is any of the Dynasty Warriors games.

If you can play Japanese games, I'd recommend any vertical/horizontal scrolling shooter and the game Idol Master: Live For You.

I would say family game night. A lot of games there to play, you just have to pay for them.

SaintKnight
04-19-2009, 11:16 PM
The Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises scream out the answer to this topic. Family Game Night is another good one, but, if you think about it, you can get most of those board games for really cheap anyways.

Glowin Smurff
04-19-2009, 11:54 PM
for us its

Gears1/2, GuitarHero2/3/WT, Rockband1/2, GRAW 1/2, Scene It:BOS and Scene It:LCA, Silent Hill, Leisure Suit Larry, etc. etc. wide variety. :)

That was the first game that came to mind. I think the second one has some co-op type elements so it's worth a shot. The game has a very 'cutesy' image that appeals to females and small kids but it's a pretty deep and addicting game.

oh yeah i forgot Viva Pinata Party Animals. which is fun and mariokartish and has some fun mini games.

And she was surprised to see L4D isn't on there.
thing is she cant aim for shit But she still seems to enjoy it, even if she doesn't get the most kills.
This is pretty easy too cause if it's just the two of you, the AI can cover her (so you don't always have to try and protect if she isnt the best of gamers) and you can still play like normal (save that it's on an easier setting).

She also loves Bomberman Live. She doesn't seem keen on Halo but's got about half way through the campaign but she refuses to go on the Guitar Hero games with me. Too shy to sing (despite doing shows in front of audiences as a singer) the drums (and watching the screen for too long) gives her a headache but she plays the guitar with her mates when they're having a night in with a few drinks.

I don't like RE5 so that's a no :) [my opinion is based on demo alone]
As for the Lego series, i've never actually played these, never even knew they had multiplayer! What're they like? In terms of co-op enjoyability over gamerscore (but also what're they like for Achievements, she wont care but I don't wanna have another crappy game with no achievements clogging my tag)

This was a good thread idea btw, never thought of asking the community :)


EDIT: My girlfriends aim is improving :rolleyes:

Fiddy's a great game, I won't lie...it's my secret shame. Have to get back into that one myself. I wish Mrs. Mint would play a game on the 360 but I'll have to settle with my lil dudes (Junior Mints 1 and 2).

My girl loves Scene it and Lips. Hasbro Family came Night's Scrabble and Connect fours she likes.. but I don't. She also likes to play halo 3, Castle crashers, and uno. Her favorite is Halo 3.. which I don't mind :woop:

We usually play Scene it Guitar Hero or Uno she got me the 200 in it lol but she really doesent like games that much.

I'm so glad I put through the crap I recieved as my stressy girlfriend struggled to do any song on Easy on Guitar Hero/Rock Band, I had never seen anyone play so badly lol but eventually she got the hang of it and now playing on Medium is able to help me get achievements no one else would bother to do (5 star co-op on GH3 lol).

My girlfriend also is a big Crash Bandicoot fan and recently bought me Crash of the Titans so we could play together. I wasn't sure at first because being an achievement whore I wanted to get them all and pausing all the time to check a guide to see if I've missed anything wouldn't be fun for her. I've now come to terms with accepting that I'm simply playing the game for fun with my loved one and not caring so much for the achievements (which is a RARE thing for me these days lol). Using it as a bonus play through, preparing me to go on Hard.

Finally as someone else mentioned the Lego games are probably good. I can't say yet but I will eventually give them a go with mine.

Edit: - Anyone got any tips on how to get your girlfriend in to FPS? lol. Mine is curious but is always put off by not being able to control moving with left stick and looking with the right at once (something I been doing for years and take for granted). I think my best bet is to get something which is fun without being Hard so playing Left 4 Dead on the easiest difficulty maybe?

DENAz666
04-20-2009, 06:21 AM
Really depends on what type of games your missus enjoys. Here are a couple of ones that me and my GF enjoyed together:

GoW2
Army of Two
Left 4 Dead
Guitar Hero (all of them)
RockBand 1&2
COD WaW (nice co-op)
Halo3 (although i struggled with that one, really not the biggest fan:P)

Then there is a whole host of Arcade games that are great fun

Haha, yeah, that's the same problem I'm dealing with atm. I tried her on Halo at first, thinking since it's a big open space she'd cope better but she prefers L4D on Easy. You just have to be patient, especially when it comes to what appear to be difficult obstacles like jumps, stairs and ladders haha :)
Oh, and if she doesn't see something, make sure you take your time in pointing it out to her, shooting it repeatedly with your pistol isn't a big enough clue and may wind her up more than help her.
Learn from experience. :D

She liked talking shit rather than playing the game though. It was cute. :p

MY bf and I have played the Crash Bandicoot and LEGO games together, that seemed to work quite well.
We tend to help each other out on arcade games, but not actually play together at the same time. I tend to spot better options on PuzzleQuest, but he's further into the story than I am, so I just sit and shout "Not that one, try swapping in the top right corner!"

@JJBDude - I got the hang of l stick/r stick control from playing RPGs (eg Oblivion), then moved over into FPSs. Could be worth a try if you have any.

My girlfriend was the same way. She can't move the L/R sticks at once very well at all. The first time she played Halo 3 online though she wanted to kill other people to prove me wrong. Her first game she got 2 kills, but after that it went downhill haha. Anyways she loves playing it now, but she still isn't good with the stick movement. She gets about 3 to 8 kills a game... and it isn't rare if she gets 0 to 2 lol.

Not reading the thread, but general party games like Guitar Hero, DDR, or Uno are all good. Viva Pinata is hit or miss

DudeWithTheFace
04-20-2009, 02:52 PM
Left 4 dead is always a good one, along with shooters like CoD:W@W or Gears. PGR is fun to mess around in, and don't forget uno :)

There is also that massage game....;)

And or Gears of War2 that game is awesome co-op;)

04-20-2009, 04:20 PM
My wife and I already play games so here's what I suggest.


If the girl is a real gamer:

Soul Caliber
Rainbow Six Vegas (1 or 2)
Gears of War (1 or 2)
Resident Evil 5
Viva Pinata : Trouble in Paradise
Rock Band or Guitar Hero


If she's more into the casual playing:

Feeding Frenzy 2
Double Dragon
Kingdom of Keflings
Lego Batman / Lego Indiana Jones / Lego Star Wars
Uno
Any arcade board games or card games (Gin Rummy, Spades, Hearts, Connect 4, Battleship, Dominoes, Sudoku, etc)
Viva Pinata Party Animals

I could list more but this is enough to get you started.

04-20-2009, 04:24 PM
my GF loves playing Schizoid with me, maybe you can try it out?

i'm looking for similiar co-op game like that tho, are there any more out there?
no shmup please haha

pinkpanfa
04-20-2009, 04:32 PM
If she isn't good with The FPS control scheme, try it with a really simple platformer game like Kung Fu Panda. That game makes you move and look around at the same time.

If you Want to start out with a shooter :uzi:, go with one that doesn't move as fast as Halo or COD. Run some Gears 2 Horde matches or some one-on-one Gears local matches until she gets the hang of it. Then dive into co-op on Easy. Anything with a slow moving tutorial works great (Gears 1, Rainbow 6 Vegas 2, 50 Cent:BotS, Army of Two)

MajinDrew
04-20-2009, 07:29 PM
If anything it really does just depend on what she's in to. My girlfriend practices Kuk Sool, a korean martial art, and true to form she loves fighting games so Soulcalibur IV, DOA4 and when it's out Tekken 6.

You'd just need to find something that piques your girls interest that you can share too!

I have found that women have a fatal attraction to Tomb Raider. My mum used to play it when I was little when we had the family Playstation One and the missus likes TR. I was quite surprised when I got sent to go get some drinks and came back upstairs to see her playing my 360 with TR Legend in the tray =]. It did make me smile though. Heh I still might try to coax her into playing with me more often (360 wise, for the immature and Hayden if he sees this). Try her with Tomb Raider =].

Before me and my girlfriend broke up, she loved to watch me play Dead Rising..

If you want to game with your girlfriend, go with one of those new RPGs, I think the newer one is called "Surprise Buttsex". If that fails go with Halo 3 if your chicka isn't a gamer since you can be good at that game without trying. I'm happy mine is a gamer because we can play games that we both like such as RE5, L4D, and I'm trying to get her to by 'The Orange Box' so we can play TF2 together.

If she likes racing then maybe try out PGR4 it's fun and easy to play.

You guys must be getting some good catch's if you have gf's that will player First Person Shooters with you. Mine won't even let me play them myself when she is around.

Lego Indiana Jones is the only thing she will play with just me. Rock Band and Scene It if we have a group of people over to hang out.

My GF enjoys playing the LEGO games quite a bit, and it definitely helps my gamerscore. Other games that she enjoys include Puzzle Quest, Puzzle Fighter (she can actually work me in this one), and currently she's helping me get 1000 GS in Monopoly.

FPS' are unfortunately not, and never will be on the list.

My wife likes playing stuff like, scrabble, uno, lego games. I also got her hooked on Halo 3 for awhile since she watched me play it so much. She would get excited when she killed my friends in games lol, its funny. Just try trial and error she might end up liking a game that you thought she might not.

But most females I know arent into the girly or easy games so we all play shooters and our boyfriends have to deal with it. :)

When I play game's with my girl we most of the time play the Wii. She'll mess around on the Xbox 360 every once in a while but she's more into the Wii.

On the Xbox 360 though she's down to try any game I ask her to with me, or she'll suggest a game. So just depends on what you/her are into.

I have a shit load of game's for the 360 so to me it's whatever, I think I'm up to 15 or so with the Wii.

Mine enjoys just about everything

From what she has she loves Left 4 Dead , she claims to hate Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 but i highly doubt that [its because she keeps losing n.n; and cause i teabag her when she dies xD]

We also just go into party chat and talk to each other while we play Star Ocean or other 1 player games

My girlfriend loves Rock Band, you should see the frustration in her face! She's gone up to Hard Bass (Just about :P) in a matter of months.
Other than that if I try and play anything else with her the Xbox goes off and she gets all my attention.
