Romance in Video Games: Handling Rejection

In this special Valentine's Day episode (we know it's late!) Pat and Stoy talk about video games with romance options, and sometimes characters are NOT. AN. OPTION. How do you handle rejection in a video game, in the sense where video games let us lead fantasy-like lives where we can get anything we want. Should video games even have romance options in them? Can you disconnect from it when you go back into the real world?

We reference this article from The AV Club, written by William Hughes.
