A video game that simulates dating
I am so much better at dating sims than IRL dating.
|IRL||In real life|
|DDLC||Doki Doki Literature Club!|
|Date ladder||A person you date to make yourself seem more desirable|
|Daterview||A date that feels like an interview|
|Non-date date||A hang out date|
Dating sims are video games in which players go on a series of dates with NPCs, in hopes of building a successful romantic relationship. Typically, these games are 2D, dialogue-heavy games, in which players make a series of choices while romancing one or more potential SOs.
Some dating sims are math-heavy RPGs, in which players must increase their charisma and other relationship-related stats to secure the object of their affection. Others are purely narrative, and rely on players making the right moves to woo their preferred partner.
