Girlfriend+Gaming=Awesome.

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
So, I am trying to find a fun, simple, and easy to play(controls wise) 2-player game I can enjoy with my lady. We got Beautiful Katamari because we love the series, but the 2-player is a little drab. Anything that would be really fun and simple that we would both enjoy. She does like fighters, but I tend whollip her and she loses interest ;P. (Yeah, I should let her win, but what kind of boyfriend would I be if I didn't challenge her.)

Any thoughts?

Harvest Moon.My friend and his girlfriend would play that together. Sims, anything where you can both tend to something always seems to be a direct hit.

My friend is playing World of Warcraft (or something like that) with his wife, and she doesn't seem to get enough of it. They can play it day in and day out! I don't like strategy though...
