Anime dating sim game for guys
Homosexual relationships are also possible, as there are games with no specific gender lines ("all pairings").
Dating sims originated in Japan, where traditional dating sims, such as Love Plus, are dialog-heavy and focus on time management.
The term later expanded to encompass any game with romantic simulation elements, even when combined with other genres.
Series such as Sakura Wars combine tactical RPG gameplay with dating sim gameplay.
The player must befriend and carefully build and maintain a relationship with one or more characters.
These games also often involve raising stats that reflect the player's skills.
