AD // Over the last year, I’ve created a few pieces of content around date ideas, including Virtual Date Night Ideas and Date Night Ideas For Couples During Lockdown but today I’m getting a little more niche and talking about date ideas for gamers! Because gamer girls need cute date night ideas too.
I think it’s fab when you meet someone who has shared interests with you. Although they say opposites attract, which can often be the case, shared interests really can help bring a relationship even closer. Take me and my own boyfriend for example…
We couldn’t be any different as people. I hate being the center of attention and he loves it. He’s a night owl and I’m a morning person. He hates asking for things and I’m the first person to ask anyone anything. We really are opposites. But we have SO MANY shared interests, including Motorsport, our taste in films and gaming.
Although we tend to enjoy different types of games at different times, the fact remains that gaming is a big part of both of our lives. In fact, as I’m writing this, he’s playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and I’m quite content watching him because I BLOODY LOVE THAT GAME.
Now if you’re a gaming couple, I’ll assume that you’re both a bit nerdy. Perhaps you like to try new things and delve into Fantasy worlds and get lost in your imagination. At least, that’s what I’m like! So these date ideas for gamers will incorporate a lot of those things.
Gamers Dates gamer dating app is the perfect place to look if you’re a gamer yourself and you’re looking to find love with someone who also loves gaming as much as you do! And when you find that special person, here are some great date ideas for you both to enjoy!
7 date ideas for gamers:
Play video games together
Let’s start with the obvious one but clearly the best one on the list and that’s simply have a game night together! Play games together. Either against each other or taking it in turns. Whatever floats your boat. If you both love games, a simple game night is the perfect date night idea for gamers. You can’t get much more authentic than that.
Want to mix up your game date nights? Spend an evening going retro instead! Bust out the PlayStation 1 games and get nostalgic. Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Racing, even the freaking Dance Mat! Have fun with it.
Visit an arcade
If you want to get out of the house, then visiting an arcade is the perfect fun date idea for a gaming couple. Of course with the situation in the world right now, you might be restricted with this one for a while but definitely an option to keep in mind for the future when things return to normal!
Consider doing an escape room
I’d love to pluck up the courage to do an escape room. I’m not sure my nerves would take it! But it’s a great idea for a super fun and different type of date idea to do as a couple! Especially a gaming couple who I can imagine could get very competitive with each other! Heck, even have a reward for who figures it out first!
Visit a gaming convention
Again, another option which might not be possible right now due to the current climate but when things go back to normal, attending a gaming convention together would be a super cool and fun date idea. Maybe even for a special occasion like your anniversary? I’ve watched MANY Red Dead Redemption panel talks on YouTube from various conventions! I’d absolutely love to go.
Have a gaming movies night
So, you might not fancy playing games but why don’t you watch gaming themed movies instead? This way you can also snuggle up and get cozy with a ton of snacks too. Some movies to consider under this umbrella could be: Tomb Raider, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Need For Speed, Warcraft or Assassin’s Creed!
And finally, if you want to still be competitive but don’t fancy playing online, then busting out the old fashioned board games is a great alternative for date night! I love a board game and sometimes it’s nice to get away from screens and do something a little different.
Gaming is so much fun and the great thing is, is that there’s so many areas of gaming to explore and enjoy. From solo game play, RPG, board games, retro gaming and a WHOLE bunch of different styles and genres of games. It’s such a great activity to do together but also great to do by yourself, if you need a few hours of uninterrupted alone time.
