An otome game (乙女ゲーム, literally meaning "girl" or "maiden" game) is a story based video game that is targeted towards the female market.
Generally one of the goals, besides the main plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters.
It does not have to be the main gameplay element (such as in Japanese dating sim games), but there must be at least some gameplay-related choices concerning a romantic relationship.
Are there any Japanese Sim Dating Games in english (or have an English patch) thats similar to the ones like in the anime "The World God Only Knows"?
Is there any dating simulation game in english either on ps3 or xbox?
I was hoping for it because it failed me on PSP (although I know some Hiragana/katagana writings but they were just a pain to play with it).
That anime got me to want to try one and see how it feels to play it.
As far as i know, actual dating sims aren't very common on the english market.
Included in the group are games in which the protagonist may (or is required to) date/court other player-controlled characters or non-player characters (NPCs) with romantic intentions, choosing the player's attitude towards the character in either actions or dialog choices.
In order to be part of this group, dating has to be a gameplay element.
