Dream Daddy, or: How I Learned to Keep Worrying and Still Love Myself

In between bouts of trying to finish a senior thesis, ensure I walk at graduation and find one of those things that people call “jobs,” I’ve been letting loose by playing Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. Developed by video game luminaries Game Grumps, Dream Daddy allows the user to play as a single dad who has to woo the other fathers in his cul-de-sac while navigating parenting. It is, to put it lightly, the best damn game of any kind that I have ever played in my until now not-fully-actualized life. I’m usually late to the party on new computer games, and started playing Dream Daddy months after most fans freaked out around its July 2017 release date. Simply put, the game feels like it was uniquely written for me.

“Open your eyes….”

“Open your eyes…”

“Wake up, Link!”

This was the first time I ever heard voice acting in a Zelda game. Frankly, it was a little unnerving. It wasn’t what I expected. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the game I’ve been waiting six years for, ever since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in 2011. A few 3DS games and Wii U remasters of older titles have been released since, but none of them could get me as excited as when I saw Breath of the Wild’s first teaser trailer in 2013.
