The National Federation for Decency boasts about 20,000 members. Its first and best known project involved monitoring prime-time television that might appeal to "man's prurient nature." Each monitor spent one night a week tallying televised incidents of violence, profanity, and "skin." As The Wall Street Journal reported at the time, "One monitor, a woman, cited the September 13 episode of Charlie's Angels for 23 'jiggly' scenes. Another monitor, also a woman, didn't note any such scenes. Mr. [Donald] Wildmon[, head of the National Federation for Decency,] says, 'I'd just use the higher estimate and not bother with the other one.'"

Since we began publishing the Moving Pixels podcast on a biweekly (rather than weekly) basis a couple years ago, I have had a scheduling hole on Mondays that I have never quite seemed able to fill in the Games section at PopMatters.
My wife had what I consider to be a rather scathingly brilliant idea over the weekend. We have about six years worth of podcasts (about 200 episodes) sitting over on the Soundcloud servers, so why not fill the hole by creating a Best of the Moving Pixels podcast feature to post during those off weeks?
So, this is a discussion from 2010 about love stories in video games. Hopefully, it is of interest to those that have never heard it before or is a pleasant bit of nostalgia for those that did.

I get why people like Undertale, not really my kind of game these days, though.
