Games with Heart

The endless torrent of Valentine’s Day-inspired articles has been upon us the entire week, but now we’re finally cooking with gas. GameDaily has went down the road less traveled, showcasing Video Games with Heart, an exploration into health meters and the life-replenishing power of hearts.

The Legend of Zelda (NES)

Link, the young protagonist in Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda franchise, has a life bar comprised entirely of hearts.

Throughout the course of his adventures, you’re able to increase his health bar to better survive the games’ many enemies.

The Darkness (Xbox 360, PS3)

On his 21st birthday, hit man Jackie Estacado receives creeping dark tendrils as gifts, bloodthirsty snake-like creatures that enable him to quickly destroy his victims. To keep them in tip-top condition, Jackie must avoid bright lights and feed on human hearts. Delicious.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

In Nintendo’s super popular fighting game, you square off against famous mascots like Mario, Samus Aran and even Link. As you pummel your adversaries with furious punches, kicks and special moves, you’ll come across items strewn across the battlefields. Be on the lookout for the special Heart Containers that reduce your damage by 100 points.
