Sexually explicit dating sims may fall into the category of H Game or Eroge. Characteristics[ edit ] Screenshot from the original PC Engine version of Tokimeki Memorial illustrating the complex system of statistics standard of the genre. Dating sims such as Tokimeki Memorial, and some role-playing games with similar relationship based mechanics to the genre such as Persona , often give choices that have a different number of associated "mood points" which influence a player character's relationship and future conversations with a non-player character. This gives the games more replay value, since the player can focus on a different girl each time, trying to get a different ending. One game series that often includes dating, with the goal of marriage, is the farming sim series Harvest Moon. Some Japanese dating sims may allow the player to have romantic or sexual relationships with characters in their teens. Eroge only gets released to PC because large Japanese game companies do not want to release games with sexual content on their game consoles.
