Whether you’re new or old to the world of online dating, you’ve probably seen or played an online dating game. These games span many different genres, but typically take the form of the user romancing various people in order to find true love. Other games show up at game shows that have actual people interacting to win the person of their dreams. Here are four of the best online dating games:
• RED Virtual Date. In this online dating simulation game, you choose which sex you are, then pick one of three eligible bachelors to be your honey for the night. The date takes place in the location of your choice, where you and your date have deep and insightful conversations. Your answers – and the questions you ask – determine the outcome of the date. After three dates, you get to make your move and go in for the first kiss. Will you be rejected, or have you found bliss?
• Dating in Disguise. This online dating game is a fresh new take on traditional dating games. Taking the form of a game show, Dating in Disguise uses live people and helps people find their true love – or a “zonker” date. The contestant asks three panelists questions in order to determine which one is Mr. or Ms. Right. The twist is that one of the panelists is an actual date, while two are “zonker” dates, or spoof dates. This online dating game is a hilarious spoof on traditional dating games. Catch it at BadDateTV.com.
• College Romance. It’s your last year in college, and you want to make the most of it. So you meet five women and romance them. But be wary – because when you do poorly, they really let you have it. This online dating simulation game works like many others, where you answer and ask questions and the interactions vary according to your answers. It’s like a choose-your-own-dating-adventure!
• Habbo Hotel. If you’re seeking some avatar-to-avatar interaction with another human being, try Habbo Hotel. While it’s not meant to be an online dating game in the traditional sense, many people have found love while wandering this cartoonish world. Meet up with your date for a virtual milkshake, or just spend some time getting to know each other through chat.
Online dating games can be a great way to meet some real (or virtual) hotties. Try one out today and maybe you’ll make a love connection.
