Dating Sims are very popular today between teenagers and single young adults. In app stores, online gaming pages, and even Facebook, you can find many of them, and the number of downloads, likes, and positive comments increases every day.
Why are Dating Sims games so popular? What do they have that make them as played as simple match-three puzzle games on every phone and tablet platform?
Here are 7 reasons why people love Dating Sims.
1. Free to Play.
Most of the Dating Sims are free to download or play online. Developers create them with low budgets and simple graphics, so they don’t need much space in the memory card.
There are a few that you must pay to play the complete version, but they usually have a free trial, so you can try them before buying.
Some others come with special endings or colorful items to gift your chosen one that you must pay for, but they are not necessary to enjoy the game and watch the rest of the endings.
2. Replay Value.
These are short games that you can finish in just a few hours, but they have multiple endings, so finishing one is not the end of the game!
You can go back and do it all over again, and take different choices to get to a new ending. That is something most casual players love because it can be frustrating to spend too many hours in a game and not getting the ending you wanted and having to restart all over, and some people don’t have the patience to do that.
Some of these games also come with a “save and load” option, so you can go back and restart from a certain point of the game instead of starting from the beginning.
3. Beautiful and Lovable Characters.
The female and male characters inside these games are always beautiful and handsome. They change facial and body expressions depending on your choices, showing their feelings accordingly.
When you reach the end or certain important moment of the story, you get a beautiful still frame sharing a passionate kiss or walking to the sunset with your chosen one.
There are many games that come with voice audio, that make the experience a lot more fun and attractive; they even have different language option! You can listen to seductive love declarations in Japanese, English, and more.
4. Play Anywhere.
You can download the apps on your phone or tablet device, laptops and pc. That way, you can play them anytime, anywhere.
It can be as fun as taking a book with you to a long waiting line or to your dentist’s appointment, but instead of just reading about someone else’s story, you can interact directly with the story and characters in it. You are the protagonist!
5. Social Interaction with Realistic Artificial Intelligence.
Teenagers and many single adults are shy and feel intimidated with social interaction.
These games help them to gain more confidence in themselves, as they start to get used to talking with other people and find that it’s not as hard and intimidating as they feared.
The easy answers with multiple choices give them ideas and a new attitude to face real-life interactions.
6. Unconditional Love.
People that play this kind of games are usually looking for a little bit of fantasy romance without the problems of the real world.
You can be sure that the characters in the game are not going to break your heart and leave you for someone else, nor get angry if you don’t give them as much time as you should.
They’re there to fall in love with you and be sure they’ll tell you that without asking for anything in change.
7. Simple and Fun.
The most important reason why people love these games is that they’re easy and fun to play.
They are a great distraction from the daily routine and you don’t have to think too much to play them: just sit down, relax, and enjoy! Still not in love? What are you waiting for? Give them a try and find out for yourself why people love Dating Sims.
