VIDEO GAMES TO PLAY TOGETHER ON VALENTINE’S DAY:
Played in co-op mode, you and your partner can have fun solving puzzles together even if one (or both) of you, aren’t a skilled gamer. It’s been around for a bit, so for consoles you’re looking at getting it for Xbox 360 or the PS3, but it’s also available on Steam for PC.
