A dating sim is a game that simulates dating. Clever, right? Most often it’s for dudes who don’t really do well with that whole talking to girls thing, but sometimes it’s just for the guys who want to whack off and play a video game all at once. Dating sims are easily found online for free. Search ‘dating sims’ and they will pop up like crazy. Be careful if you want to actually purchase one that would get downloaded onto your computer or spread your credit card information around. The free ones honestly do just fine in terms of mostly naked (or completely naked) chicks.
Game play on these isn’t meant to be challenging. They tend to be simple questing games like delivering items or helping some hot cyber-babe do something. In thanks she takes off her clothes or plays out a dirty scene for you. The graphics can range anywhere from pixilated for the character and actual pictures for the chicks or vise versa. Another popular art form for dating sims is the anime style that originated in Japan. It’s characterized by drawn out chicks (similar to our morning cartoons) but sexual as hell. Expect giant, terribly proportioned tits, and giant eyes.
People use dating sims for two reasons: jerking off to and pretending. Obviously, there is a naked chick on screen. Whether she’s pixilated or photographed, someone is putting her image in the spank bank. But sometimes, dudes just can’t get the nerve to talk to a real chick. That’s fine, if they’re okay with keeping this sort of thing a secret. In dating sims there are versions that allow you to do whatever fantasy you want: college girls, teens, the freaky stuff…nothing is off limits here. It’s sort of a training in whatever babe you want to bang one day. Quests tend to mean getting them flowers or presents and following through with dates. If she likes what you do then you can ‘level up’ and she’ll become more into you. If you screw it up somehow, well, just like real life you’ll have to make it up to her later. The end goal is that eventually you get to have cyber sex with her. Sometimes they let you choose commands or areas to play with, but most of the time it’s a video or sound clip that plays long enough for the player to get off to. The ‘choose what you do’ option does make the player interact, which can be good or bad. If this gets them off then cool, but it’s a little bit annoying trying to click with one hand and get her to moan louder while shaking the snake.
