We all know how big of a scam Valentine’s Day can be. The “holiday” generates over $15 billion a year for companies, even ones that sell shitty chocolates and cheap diamonds. It’s as if we need a holiday to validate our love to a significant other by spending as much money on them as possible. As open minded I am to the idea, I’d much rather be at home playing video games. Here’s five simple ways you can spend your Valentine’s Day at home with your Xbox One instead of an overpriced dinner at Outback Steakhouse.
1. Tear up the tarmac with the new Forza 5 car pack
With all new cars to drive like the 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z and Maserati MC12, the new February car pack will give you hours of pure driving enjoyment on Valentine’s Day.
2. Have a date with the beautiful Lara Croft in Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition
What other woman on Valentine’s Day will have you by her side on a daring adventure in search of a lost ancient kingdom? Not only will Lara give you many great hours of gaming on Valentine’s Day, she also won’t get mad at you when you stop giving her attention and turn her off at the end of the night.
3. Complete all 28 Peggle 2 Achievements
Sure, some of the Peggle 2 achievements are easy, but there are plenty that could keep you occupied the whole Valentine’s Day. Here’s a list of all 28 achievements. Best to not do it all in one sitting though, you could develop a strong hate for that damn unicorn.
4. Learn the newly introduced Spinal’s Ultra Combo in Killer Instinct
Yeah, Spinal is awesome and you’ll look like a complete badass if you whip out this combo against one of your friends. It’s a tough one to learn but not too bad if you practice a little bit.
5. Kill thousands of zombies in Dead Rising 3
Nothing fills an empty void in your heart on Valentine’s Day than brutally killing thousands of festering undead. Warm up your heart with a plethora of weapons and go to town on those bastards for hours, its pure fun.
