- Eyeresist , 6 June 2006 (UTC) Ashibaka's argument is basically "it's not English and since 'dating sim' is an excellent equivalent we should be using that". "Love sim" suggests a simulation of the experience of being in love, which, while it may be so for many players, many, on the other hand, don't take them as seriously as that suggests.
"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?
Some of the gameplay may be a little different from traditional dating games.
The aim of dating games is to find, date and get with the man or woman that you desire.

Omgwtflolz , 26 February 2006 (UTC) I have pointed out multiple times that you are wrong and I am right.As far as i know, actual dating sims aren't very common on the english market.The visual novel market is starting to pick up in the west, but while those are similar they aren't true dating sims since they make use of routes as opposed to stat levels.This involves searching the city to find the people you like and then getting them interested enough to want you.Although some virtual dating games are different, most dating sim games give you a certain amount of days to get into a relationship.
