Bizarre Games Related Wedding Stories Emerge

Posted by Orla Madden

Simulation girlfriends and Zelda wedding rings ahoy!

Ah, love at first sight; the sun is always shining, the grass is always green, and the sky is always blue. This is exactly what one Japanese otaku felt for his virtual woman - Nene Anegasaki of the dating sim Love Plus on the Nintendo DS, to be precise. Over time, he met a real life woman and they decided to tie the knot, and on their wedding day a special reservation was given to the sim - the system with the game inside had its own seat at a table.

You read that right, but it wasn't for long. As the newly wed couple were cutting the cake, the wife had a surprise in store. She produced a large wooden mallet to demolish his digital woman; in an unexpected turn of events he went ahead and helped with the digital massacre, with a tear or two trickling down during this melancholic madness.

Moving on to a slightly lighter story with a happier tone, involving a Romanian Goldsmith called Zsolt Székely. Székely specialises in custom designs for rings, with one lucky couple getting the pictured set of wedding bands. As you can see there is a special engraving on the inside - 'It's Dangerous To Go Alone'.

This has brought a genuine tear to our eye. Til death do us part? No, off to save Hyrule together!

May she rest in pieces. The rings are nice, but girls these days want expensive diamond rings.

Yay nene died!
@HarmoKnight that is very offensive. Speaking like that of a real person. Regardless of how YOU feel towards women it's not nice to say you'd smash them with a mallet :( I don't do that to men just because they are trifling :(
I can only hope you didn't mean what you said :'(

@Shining-Void
I think you're thinking of the enagagement ring (diamond-y!), which is different than a wedding band. Wedding bands are more often just simple rings (typically gold).

Ok, the fact that the guy fell in love with a virtual women like that is just wrong.

This intrigued me enough to look into it and the stories of the man (Sal9000) marrying Nene and the smashed DS while similar might not be linked. Sal9000 has a red DS (original model) and the smashed DS story has no mention of a name. So while that other otaku may have gotten his DS smashed, Sal9000 seems to be still very much in love with Nene.

Still pretty funny though!

I think the first story would've been more interesting if the groom went insane over the murder he witnessed and some serious..stuff.. went down.

I guess this counts as one of the only times it's legal to kill the ex, unless he took out the cartridge when the wife wasn't looking.

As for the other couple, they will forever be Link (Rimshot).

I remember hearing a story a year or two ago (not sure if it's actually this story or not) that a guy in Japan actually married his female sim counterpart. Talk about desperate...

I thought I had heard that first story before, but in the one I heard, the guy actually married his DS...

The second story is genuinely awesome, though. I wish them the best.
