Let's see if we've got what it takes to establish fulfilling relationships with them with the best dating simulation games out there!
The majority of dating simulation games usually has the player assuming the role of a male protagonist in the lead role, as he tries to win over the hearts of several beautiful girls.
Then, someone showed me Usaya's [Free], and suddenly, I need a whole new scale for measuring weirdness.
Combining Japan's love of horse-racing, idol groups stacked with cute girls, and social RPGs is certainly one way to bring together seemingly disparate interests in a game.
Attractive men compete for your main character's affections, and you can choose which one you'd like to pursue.
While horse-racing is more popular with older men, horses themselves are as popular with Japanese women as they are with anyone else. Maybe a dating sim that takes place on a farm, where your heroine has to choose among several handsome farmhands? Your character is a normal human girl, and it's not like the absurdity of the situation escapes her.
Dating sims like Hatoful Boyfriend or games with dating elements like the Mass Effect or Persona series give you choices in your romance, but the relationship doesn’t actually star you; it stars the character you play as in the scenario.
However, in VR, you are the star, and this is happening to you, albeit virtually. Pigeonation's Institute, a prestigious high school catering to a diverse population of roughly human-sized sentient birds. It just so happens that in The absurd premise is treated with such absolute deadpan mundanity that it is hard not to be won over by its charm and sucked into the stories of your avian paramours. That is to say, it offers a text-heavy branching storyline where the visuals mostly consist of a portrait of whichever character or characters you are talking to standing against some background scenery.All this is a huge boon for visual novels and dating simulation games, which would have lingered in obscurity outside of Japan, otherwise.A bevy of 2D hotties are waiting for us to make the right move.The more intimate VR games definitely take some time to get used to.
