Dating talking everyday
--Eduard Pascual (talk) , 7 October 2008 (UTC) The article says "The gameplay involves conversing with a selection of artificial intelligence-controlled girls" this is somewhat incorrect. It is all a set of predesigned pathways for you to take and its just differing depending on your choices.
"Ren'ai simulation game," in Japanese usage, sounds more like a type of simulation game than a simulation of love, in part because it is often abbreviated in the context of galge to "simulation game"--"simulation"/"SLG," not "ren'ai simulation." "Aijou simulation game" would sound more like "love sim." This may seem extreme given precedent, but how about changing the headword to "Romance sim," redirecting from "Dating sim," and noting common English-language usage at the beginning of the article?
Doesn't giving an accurate description of the subject take priority over following English-language convention?
After all, this is not supposed to be a dictionary (though people still will be able to find the page through "Dating sim"), but an encyclopedia giving "a worldwide view of the subject." Skyworm (talk) , 14 December 2007 (UTC)If you take a look at , there is a list there with more than 120 games: most of them are Ren'ai, while only some are actual Dating sims.
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.
There are, of course, many hybrids that blur the line between both categories, like the The Nettestadt Troll, which mostly runs as a typical Ren'ai visual novel but at a certain point starts including DS elements.

Now, not only is this page a mess, but the "gender focus" section on the sidebar is obsolete /and/ people are getting confused - I just saw that Angelique had been placed in the "Bishoujo games" category (there are no official Angelique games that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.
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.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
