In fact, there are likely far more dating sims geared towards guys available than there are ones for girls.So, this week Important Importables is going to briefly look at some of the Japanese dating sim games released for guys.If you’d rather play a game with dating sim in Japanese (and isn’t hentai/adult, which we’ll get to a bit later in the article), then you’ll have to settle for games with dating sim elements.The best example of an English language dating sim was the PS1 game Thousand Arms, released by Atlus.
JList is also still having a game sale on select hentai/bishojo PC dating games. If you buy two games, you get a Hirameki game free. Some other famous adult visual novels include To Heart, Air, Fate/stay night, Kanon, Welcome to Pia Carrot, Tsukihime, Nanatsuiro Drops, Shuffle! There were some non-adult releases of these games though, like in the case of Welcome to Pia Carrot 2.2 (GBC), Air (PC, Dreamcast, PS2), Kanon (PC, Dreamcast, PS2, PSP) and Nanatsuiro Drops (DS).
The visual novels are easily the best known and most prevalent in the genre.
Think of them as choose your own adventure novels in a game format.
Days of Memories: Koi wa Good Job and Days of Memories: Junbaku no Tenshitachi both are for guys and have various SNK famous females from games like King of Fighters and Fatal Fury as available bachelorettes.
There are also more interactive games, which involve actually working on a character’s traits, or performing actions other than just reading and picking a possibly correct response to continue the story.
