The dating missions (begun in San Andreas) were always fun, but not when you were obliged to go on them. For instance, you're travelling all over the city, doing drug runs, trying to find jump bonuses, trying to complete missions and build your criminal empire, and here are all these lame phonecalls every day you have to answer and respond positively to, or you will lose the contact. Why do they want to date 5 days a week? and why does Brucie want to hang out practically every day? Isn't he working on his abs?!
But Skyrim has the possibility of marriage. Though it does not mean much in the end; she sjust its in your house while you're gone (doing what? who knows) , and if you come in and ask, she'll give you a meal that you probably don't need.
Dating is good -- but reasonable dating, dating that makes sense to the plot, or at least gives you a benefit you can really use, like double energy, unlimited sniper rounds, or rapid healing rate.
In this game there are three protagonists Michael is married, franklin has a girlfriend or wife, and trevor is a lonely psychopath. You can freely switch between characters int his game and instead of them just standing in their houses when you eventually do they might be walking or driving around, they may also be on the crapper as IGN stated. http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/11/12/game-scoop-everything-we-know-about-gta-5
