Valentine's minded gamers everywhere made a declaration of love this past week and cast their votes in our most recent poll: "What's your favorite video game couple?"

The winner? A Nintendo twosome, but not the one you might think.

With 28% (5,762) of your votes , Link and Zelda are the king and queen of the dance, proving once and for all that even the evil Ganon can't get in the way of Cupid's arrow.  Meanwhile, odds-on favorite Mario and Peach came up a tad short with 27% (5,038).

Indeed, old school rules: our third place couple, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man at 21% (3,778), have been together for a good 30 years.

Love wasn't quite so effortless for the bottom three couples, however. At 8% (1,511), Uncharted's Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher have only just begun their romantic journey, while Mass Effect's Commander Shepard and Liara only managed 6% (1,079).  And we're all still trying to figure out just what is going on between Half-Life's Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance, who wound up in last with 5% (802).

With Valentine's Day being the most love-filled day of the year, who's your favorite couple?
