Today, there are a ton of other simulator games besides The Sims, especially in terms of dating.
Not only do dating simulators give you the chance to interact with people from all over the world, but they can also help you improve your communication and overall dating skills.
I haven’t been much of a gamer since I gave up the Sims in middle school — but I still remember the thrill of my Sims’ first kiss.
The pixelated avatars’ lip locks were accompanied by a euphoric soundtrack, dramatic embrace, and sometimes (I later learned) a serendipitous impromptu wedding.
So when I heard about Japanese romance-simulator apps, I was intrigued.
Men have been onboard with dating simulation apps for a while (as evidenced by marriages to virtual girlfriends), but romance sims — marketed primarily to women — are newer.
The game offered a satisfyingly methodical path to romance: Get your Sims to talk, tell some jokes, flirt, and then go in for the kill.
Developers claim to have researched women’s dating lives extensively in order to re-create “the butterflies feeling of a romance.” And, as I found when I downloaded “My Killer Romance,” the result is weirdly compelling.
As you progress, you decide how you treat these boys and other people at the school.
The game features over 30 episodes, each with multiple endings and different scenarios for you to discover.
Maybe you prefer to experience a more realistic scenario when you play a game.
Dating simulators provide exactly that type of gameplay.
