Hmmm… I just spoke with one of my Japanese friends. In Japan, like some of you might know, people buy otome game for 1.Seiyuu and 2.Characters. Story is not that important. It’s same with this friend. She said like, otome game is something to play when you want to be relaxed for a bit. It’s better if the game is not story heavy, so that it won’t be a problem if you forget it before replaying the game again. The game she mentioned is utapri, brothers conflict, etc. So 1. have more characters to capture is better 2. Story is not important, the main purpose is to have a romance with the characters. Well maybe I should call this dating sim?
Me, I’m personally like story so much. Movies, games, novels, comics, whatever it is, I don’t mind if they have good story and made me can’t stop to play/watch/read because of the curiosity to know the ending.
So… I kinda wonder but, which type do you like better?
Story oriented game or a light dating sim?
