DS got Miyamoto's wife into gaming, how about you?

During a rather lengthy interview with Talk Asia, Shigeru Miyamoto spoke all things gaming and all things Nintendo. Obviously, the interview focuses a bit more on Nintendo's new-comer to the console scene, the Wii, but he does mention the DS. In fact, he even goes to far as to say it is the only instrument that got his wife into gaming, stating "My wife does not play any kind of games. I have tried to make her interested with various games like Tetris, but she has never showed interest, until recently. But we're beginning to tear down the walls, starting with the Nintendo DS games."

That got us to thinking about what got people into games. Did the DS or any other handheld system get you into gaming, or have you always been a gamer and the DS just aided in that obsession?
