Senua and Dillion in Hellblade. (SPOILERS)


As I can attest from personal experience, having a mental illness adds a whole new level of difficulty to finding love and maintaining a relationship. Senua finds in Dillion someone who accepts her and loves her for who she is, trauma and all. This is a truly rare and special thing.

But she feels that her illness is hurting him, (another very relateable problem) and so pushes him away and leaves to try and confront her demons alone. When she returns, he is dead, and his death pushes her to a psychotic break which manifests as the events of the game.

What begins as a quest to save his soul from hell ultimately becomes something far more poignant; Senua must come to terms with his death, let him go, and resolve to move on with her life.

Most love stories tell of the genesis of a relationship; Hellblade instead portrays the pain of love cut short, and how we cope with loss.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Timpani and Blumiere from Super Paper Mario is a really great one.

Give us Gravity Rush 3 Sony

Yeah, it's this one.

Edit: this one was pretty good too:

LMAO Sonic and Final Fantasy lady. Couldn't agree more.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Goro Majima and Makoto.

He loves her. It's his one real weakness but in order to protect her. He can never be with her. She must never know who he is.

Skyward Sword Zelda and Link were cute too.
