One of the most creative and yet nerdy marriage proposals has been carried out by a man who hacked the video game "Chrono Trigger" to get his message across to his girlfriend. The computer science student said he wanted to do something unique that used his talents.

Within the game, the college student digitally recreated the site of their first date, Mount Baker, and many of their other favorite memories, including stargazing, dancing and the lyrics from her favorite song.

When his shocked girlfriend saw her name on the screen, she turned to find him on one knee with a ring.

What did she say? Yes, of course! And then she said, "You are such a huge nerd! I love this!" Just a bit of creative inspiration for all the romantic nerds out there hoping to woo their woman in a fun and fitting way.
