The 25 Most Realistic Video Game Romances

The Lovers: Pretty much everyone

"It ain't a matter of guys or chicks... I'm just scared shitless of being rejected."

If you've ever written the Persona games off for being too-Japanese or dorky, you're doing yourself an incredible disservice. Within this fantastic RPG are some of the most authentic depictions of high school romance, sexual insecurity, and the quest for sexual identity that's ever been made. By letting the player actively pursue their love interest through some rather inauspicious "dates" the romance has time to breathe and grow naturally, like it does in the real world.

In addition, this is one of the few times you'll ever be able to witness a wide range of LGBT relationships explored without novelty in a game. Persona 4 handles the struggles of gender identity for cis and non-cis people incredibly authentically and deserves immense praise for it. This is an incredibly forward-thinking game and you'll learn more about how the real world works having played it.
