Nerdist: Play – Why I Suck at Valentine’s Day

Over the last year, I’ve seen gamers pull some of the most romantic gestures and share these moments on social media. There’s been proposals during live charity streams in front thousands of onlookers, gaming-themed weddings, and even really cool stuff like this:

I can only imagine what people like this guy have planned for their significant other come Valentine’s Day. But if you’re anything like me, you probably plan on spending the weekend playing Evolve, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate– three games that are scheduled to release throughout the week.

On this week’s episode of Nerdist: Play, I give my reasons, gaming and non-gaming related, why I am the worst ever when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Have you ever let your gaming habits get in the way of your Valentine;s Day festivities? Do you know what it is to “lose to Guile?” If you don’t know what that means, sit back and feast your eyes on this week’s episode.

We’ve got a brand new home on Facebook! Be sure to slap the “Like” button on the shiny new Nerdist Gaming page and have your voice heard on the next episode of PLAY.
