Usually you will play as a girl, but sometimes you will play as a princess or other cool character.
In these girl dating games, you build up your charisma and intelligence and go out on dates with different guys.
These games include but are not limited to Cutie Knight Deluxe, Prince Maker, Long Live the Queen, and Spirited Heart Deluxe.(See for example, the difference between the series, which is very close to a Visual Novel style of gameplay, and the DOA Xtreme series, which is the closest thing to a true Dating Sim with mass-market appeal in the US.) If the game plays out like a Choose Your Own Adventure, that's a Visual Novel.If it feels like you're playing an RPG, trying to keep track of everyone's feelings about you and giving out presents, that's a Dating Sim.Anime dating games are great for those who are hopeless romantics or are fans of Japanese manga and anime.You have just started a new job working as an editor for the publishing house, Chess Monthly.
