Difference between dating sim visual novel
With his childhood friend Ageha in tow, they resurrect the soaring club in order to fulfill a childhood dream: to fly on a paper airplane.This article is within the scope of Wiki Project Video games, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of video games on Wikipedia.A pick-a-path book is _not_ artificially intelligent. I just noticed someone removed the BL game and Gx B pages and reverted them here.Now, not only is this page a mess, but the "gender focus" section on the sidebar is obsolete /and/ people are getting confused - I just saw that Angelique had been placed in the "Bishoujo games" category (there are no official Angelique games that involve a male main character dating females). I'm going to try and remove the content I can figure out is referring to the other genre, but I'm not quite sure what all of the games mentioned are, so it's rather hard.--Seizure Dog , 13 March 2007 (UTC) Well, ja:加奈_～いもうと～ describes it as a ren'ai adventure game.In other words, Ren'ai applies to any anime-style, romance-oriented game; but Dating Sims are specifically about simulating dating.Neither is a subgenre or subcategory of the other, due to a quite simple reason: Dating Sim is a mechanic-based classification: all DS's have many points in common in the kind of game-play and user-interaction they handle; while Ren'ai is a thematic and visual style classification: games that focus on romance and use anime-style sprites are considered to be Ren'ai, regardless of the game mechanics they involve.I have to move things around a bit to make it easier to follow, hope that doesn't violate any talk page guidelines. note that the Japanese Wikipedia has separate articles on BL and Gx B (no all pairing though), each has as much content as this current article. And I would also like to restore the old BL Games page. I'd add that may this entire article should be merged with "Visual Novel", since they largely talk about the same thing.I would like to ask for all your opinion before making such a big restoration (especially from Seizure Dog.) If this is indeed a mistake, then we should restore the section using the most recent copy (and maybe add some information from Yaoi game which was left after the first merge into BL subsection as well.) However, if it was deleted on purpose, I would like to know the reason behind it since it makes the article much shorter and not very informative. Perhaps English eqivalent articles could be revived if people can put more information into them? Thank you.--Jonica c (talk) , 31 October 2008 (UTC) It has been suggested (I don't know by whom) that Otome game be merged with this article. Shark D (talk) , 7 December 2007 (UTC) I support this proposal. A few stats like charisma and cash on hand are sprinkled throughout the visual novel genre, and make a distinction really useless. .129 (talk) , 13 December 2007 (UTC) Commercial title (like Tokimeki Memorial) raely has stupid question like amateur flash games that plague internet.

Omgwtflolz , 26 February 2006 (UTC) I have pointed out multiple times that you are wrong and I am right.I hope this list might help clarifying the difference.To put a couple of clear examples, The Question is a Ren'ai game, while Summer Session is a Dating sim.Since it's basically been settled that dating sims and visual novels are different genres, there's confusion in this article due to visual novels also being called dating sims in the West. Then again, I'm arguing in favor of English genre definitions on the English wikipedia on Talk: Visual novel, so I can't rightly favor the Japanese source in this case just because I personally agree with it.Still, I'd like to replace the illustrative thumbnail of Kana Imōto in this article with one of Dokyusei or Tokimeki Memorial, which most people agree are the archetypical dating sims.
