Rather than going broke on the usual Valentine's Day dinner for two, why not stay home, cook a meal together, and play a few video games? Not only will you save some cash (and calories), but you'll also heighten the mood with a bit of playful competition. Check out five of my favorite games, perfect for couples.
Even though I was a big fan of the other Super Smash Bros. games in the series, it was so long ago that I honestly forgot what I was getting myself into. If you can imagine me and the BF battling it out on a Friday night (causing quite a ruckus, I might add), then you must know me pretty well, cause where the heck else would I be? Partying it up? Nah. Eating my opponents with Kirby? Oh, yes.
The awesomeness that is Super Smash Bros. Brawl isn't just that it's a great game to play with your pals at home, or online with up to four others, but the fact that you can customize your own levels, play in different modes, band together to beat the big bosses, and best of all, play as your fave Mario, Final Fantasy or Metroid characters. Plus you can use a variety of controllers to fit your needs: Wiimote, wiimote/nunchuk combo, classic controller, or even your Gamecube controllers so you're comfy and can smash with ease.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Ever since Brawl was delayed back in November, we have been waiting oh so impatiently to play this 3-D fighter. With so many of my favorite characters to pit against one another, and now the option to play online through Wii wi-fi, it just keeps getting better — and harder to wait for! Finally coming to the Wii in February.
