My take on this — every single NPC is romancible (unless morally opposed to, roll some faithfulness/faith/story/whateverelsereasons at world generation) and recruitable with some templating magicks. Depending on how you are going about it revenge, jealousy, treachery, cruelty, espionage, attempted murder or battle royale with massive collateral damage to your property and/or sanity might follow. Or maybe you are a good* fella and everything works out.

 

* Good’s defined relative to NPCs in question.

Gather game resources, raise your character's crafting skill, build your own romancable bot, then romance the cyber-crap out of her for extra XP. It amounts to the same thing really.

I've never played a game where I thought "romance" was absolutely needed or fundamental to the core experience of the game.

But then...

The whole "What do you define as romance?" argument shall arise, I presume.

Well, I don't really qualify Mario and Peach as a romance prsonally because I mean, you knew that's who Mario wanted to be with but there was no dialogue, emotion, etc. and that's probably due to the limitations years ago. Mario and Peach was more of a companionship, like that of Sonic and Tails, etc.

I define video game romances as something more like what we see in Witcher series or Mass Effect... Sadly. They've always been horribly done, without any real depth or meaning. Sure. They might change the ending or open a quest but there are alot of games which have multiple endings that don't have any romance.

And I'm not sure if I've ever seen romances actually done right in a video game before, so I'm curious to how Josh will handle that for Deadfire - if romances will be in Deadfire.

I only really enjoyed the romances in Saints Row IV.

 

Well, maybe the romance in https://en.wikipedia...tasy_Adventure

I think this is probably the only game that had proper "romance":

Shadow Hearts, Valkyrie Profile had good romance because it was integral to the plot.

 

Pehaps ironic only the Japanese get it right.

There's lots of good romances in all types of games, thing is they are usually good because they don't involve the player and are between NPCs.
