South Africa’s leading gaming guru Grant Hinds shares some ways in which a gaming couple can make date night special…

His eyes light up, twinkling with excitement…

And, not because it’s Friday night, and you’re about to embark on a romantic date night.

He’s just started playing a new video game, and he can’t wait to use his down time to continue the fun!

But, just because he’s a gamer, and his definition of ‘Friday night fun’ is to park in front of his gaming console (and not at some fancy-schmancy restaurant) doesn’t mean that the idea of date night should be abandoned.

South Africa’s leading gaming guru Grant Hinds shares some ways in which a gaming couple can make date night special:

  • Find a great co-operative (co-op) game to play together such as: Far Cry, Gears of War, Fortnite, A Way Out
  • Switch off cell phones and set up two TVs or PC screens in the lounge for the date.
  • Prepare or order in finger food that won’t damage the controllers! Don’t go for sticky food either…
  • Incorporate some gaming forfeits into a competitive game you’re playing together. Did you make a wrong move? Steal a kiss or, better yet, remove an item of clothing…
  • Clear the lounge floor, set up an indoor picnic and play to your hearts’ content.
