Over the course of eight balls, you must dance, get to know potential prospects, and gain their affection — all while looking out for the perils of Lady Whistledown’s scandal sheet. Find the best match (a.k.a. the suitor with the most Desirability and Prestige points) and become the diamond of the season (and the winner of the game). Bonus points if it’s someone you burn for.

'Baldur's Gate 3'

It’s like the Distracted Boyfriend meme. Games like Marvel’s Spider-ManAlan Wake IIStar Wars Jedi: Survivor, and Tears of the Kingdom are all the angry girlfriend who's seen you checking out Baldur’s Gate 3 for the zillionth time. No matter how many flashy AAA titles are placed in front of you, your mind wanders back to all those times you tried to seduce the cleric Shadowheart (according to the studio, more than half of 1.3 million players have done that already) or transformed into a sentient wheel of cheese (yep, 1.24 million players did that) in the Dungeons & Dragons-based role-playing game.
