Ps1 dating simulation
The Tokimeki Memorial series is, quite possibly, the most famous and most import friendly game of this type.You imrpove your character, talk to dateable prospects, give gifts and basically live a brief high school life.
There are basically two kinds of dating sims, visual novels and adventure games with some sort of other, relationship building element.Important Importables has always offered substantial coverage of various otome, that is life/dating sim games for girls, due to the fact that I enjoy playing most of those games.But those aren’t the only kind of dating sim style games in Japan.Some of the newer hentai/bishojo game additions to the site include Snow Sakura (a visual novel style game) and Princess Waltz (part card game, part dating sim), and JList is also accepting preorders for the visual novels Cosplay Academy and Family Project.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).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.
Also, both Persona 3 and Persona 4 give players the opportunity to begin relationships with female social link characters.
Even the Star Ocean games, in particular Star Ocean: The Second Story/Second Evolution and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, players’ actions in battle and decisions in Private Action scenes can result in an ending with another party member. I’ve never played them and they’re of absolutely no interest to me.
There have also been Fate/Unlimited and Fate/Tiger fighting games released by Capcom that do not fall in this category.
