BY GRANT TAYLOR: Romance sells. It’s a fact – whether it’s a television show, movie, video game or book, everyone loves a relationship. It doesn’t matter if it’s canonical or a fanfic ship, some characters in games just exude that romantic, intimate bond. Gaming romances are everywhere, in almost every game that boasts some kind of story.

Without further ado!
