Would you ever like to write music for video games? What would it be like?

I would love to make some music for video games. It's actually one of my personal goals. I would say it would sound suave and nice, especially if I can be as original as possible, to whatever the style of game is, but it really does depend on what type of game we're talking about. I'm open to a lot of styles since I game and gonna start streaming soon.
