Love is complicated enough on its own, but the internet tends to make it even trickier. It can be hard to tell when someone is tweeting @ you out of kindness and friendship, or our of an interest in something more. It's true of people, and it's true of video games.

Writer/romantic/roustabout (and erstwhile Kotaku contributor) Cara Ellison found this out the hard way when she got into this humorous back-and-forth with the official Crysis Twitter account, eventually being 'friendzoned' by the game.

So sad. Those darned video games. They always say they want a nice girl but then they friendzone you and go out with a troublemaker. Typical.
