Top 10 Tragic Video Game Romances

FEATURE | ? Comments |

Author: Neil Kapit  

Valentine's Day can be a painful reminder for the single about their unwanted singleness. However, love has just as much baggage as it does rewards. For those spending V-Day alone, here are ten reminders from popular video games that it could be much, much worse. (Note: SPOILERS for the games follow.)

10. Zero and Iris, Mega Man X4 (PS1)

An ally and implied love interest of Zero, Iris was a dutiful robot who helped the flaxen-haired hero fight the Mavericks. When her brother Colonel went rogue, Zero ended up putting him down. Iris could not reconcile this betrayal, so she went after Zero herself —and shared her brother's fate. Iris died in Zero's arms as he screamed in anguish— anguish that was genuinely felt in the original Japanese version, but hilariously bad in the infamous English dub. 

9. Harley Quinn and the Joker, Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3 / Xbox 360)

Like anything related to the Joker, the relationship between Harley Quinn and the Clown Prince of Crime goes from funny to horrifying in less than a second. The Joker's main henchwoman used to be Dr. Harley Quinzel, a psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum who worked on the Joker's case. As she talked to the super-villain, she found his insanity overwhelmingly charismatic and eventually fell for him, believing the various conflicting sob stories he gave about his childhood. But the Joker routinely proves that he doesn't care about her, and will discard her like an old sock the moment she stops being useful. Behind her criminal insanity and provocative costumes, Harley Quinn is just another one of the Joker's many victims.
