It's only when you decide to stick with it and keep exploring new characters, new interactions, and new storylines that the beauty of storytelling really begins to shine.
Dating sims often have you scheduling your character’s time in order to raise specific stats by doing certain activities., the draw is first on being able to explore a rich and compelling storyline -- and also to be able to control which way that storyline leads.The majority of these types of games don't actually require you to be 'good' at playing other games -- save for a few mini-games here and there, you generally only need to have a decent command of the English language and the ability to make up your mind.It was really no surprise to anyone, with my existing interest in anime & manga.
