Thoughts on Five Dates
Thoughts – When it comes to dating, it has changed this year, we are now in the video dating world, a way to speed up the first chats with strangers. Five Dates gives us the chance to create a virtual profile that will give us a chance to date, five women who are all different in their own way. This does open the window to what the new modern dating is happening now, when it comes to the dating questions, they don’t seem like questions you would ask on a date. While playing through the game, you will pick which woman you believe would be someone you would like a second, or third date. I picked one quite easily, but it does make dating even scarier that it already it. You can have a good laugh while playing through this game, with Vinny and Callum having funny moments throughout the film, while each date will put you in a different mindset for what is happening. The game does offer replay value because, each date will have different outcomes, with second and third dates being different for each woman too, so you can go through and see how you would like the dates to unfold.
Final Thoughts – Five Dates is a fun interactive game that shows us just how difficult dating has become, showing how you can have some good and bad dates along the way.
