Probably my favourite hobby next to playing video games is reading about people who love and design them. And I'm not talking licensed-by-Nintendo glory stories about CEOs overcoming their mistrust of Crash Bandicoot to make millions -- I'm talking books about the rest of us, lovers on MMORPGs, struggling indie devs, self-hating gaming addicts, virtuous guild leaders, gold scammers and 10-year-old girls plugging in their first console.


Games have -- to put it mildly -- a weird approach to love. But love is weird in real-life too. In time for Valentine's Day, this is a celebration of video game romance in all its strange, stalkery, even inter-species forms. Enjoy -- and maybe don't try them out in real life.
