Gaming and romance aren’t two subjects that usually go hand in hand. But, if you’re in a relationship with a gamer, then a games night date night is the ultimate way to spend some quality time together doing something that you both love. Even if your partner isn’t a gamer, this may be the way to win them around, and let them see why it is that you love your hobby so much. Who knows, maybe they’ll get bitten by the gaming bug too, and then you’ll have a shared hobby!
If you are wondering how to make your date night games night different to all of your other nights in gaming, then read on for some ideas:
As there will be two of you playing, you will need to make sure that both of your controllers are working correctly. Check this in advance of your date night, so that you don’t get caught out, and spoil your fun. This will give you enough time to sort out a replacement if it isn’t working.
Next up, it’s time to choose a game for you to play. You may decide to have more than one game lined up to play; the choice is yours. The important thing is to select a game that you will both enjoy playing, rather than simply going for your all-time favorite!
To make your date night different to any other games night, you will need to make it extra special. You can make the night special by setting up your seating so that you are next to each other and both have a perfect view of the screen. You should also make sure that your set up includes everything you need to feel comfortable during the evening. Make sure you have favorite tasty snacks set up in an easy to reach spot that won’t be knocked over while you play. If you vape, have your vape liquid ready and make sure that you have your drinks sorted out too so that you don’t need to keep on getting up and going to get them from the kitchen.
Make it Fun
A games night with your partner should be fun. When you have a games night with your fellow gamer buddies, the competition levels are probably pretty fierce.

The main focus of your date night should be about spending time together, and enjoying each other’s company while having fun. To keep your date night games night on the right track and to avoid any arguments, make sure that no one is a bad loser, or even worse, a bad winner! Make sure that you keep gaming an enjoyable way to spend your downtime. No one wants to make gaming a source of resentment in their relationship.
