Videogames have a history of 30-40 years in pop culture, and as such, it’s part of our lives to the point where gamers actually propose through them. We are still getting married, working, and living our lifes as every other generation did, but the unique state of pop culture at this time involves things that were unheard of or unimaginable in the past, such as videogames.

Here’s some of the cutest ones we found.

Portal 2 Wedding Proposal

If the bride wants the ring, she’ll have to work for it and solve a couple puzzles! The particularly cool detail in this video is that everyone at Valve loved the idea, and even got Ellen McLain, GLaDOS herself, to record some fitting, witty dialog to keep the bride company.
