I'd love to see more romance in games -- but it'd have to be good. And for that, we'd need to have good writing in games, which is still kind of a rarity right now. The most talented games writers aren't really writing romantic stuff at the moment -- we're still in this father-daughter zeitgeist.
The PC definitely got me hooked on gaming. I owned a Gameboy Advanced beforehand, but never got super deep into any games on the platform (besides Pokemon Fire Red). My first couple of games were Star Wars: Jedi Knight Jedi Academy and Lego Star Wars. I remember playing a shit ton of 2 player Lego Star Wars on a single keyboard. It was fun, if incredibly clunky.
