inb4 someone mentions the mind-numbingly pathetic To the Moon.FrozenLiquid
im so freaking sick of seeing everyone talk about TTM, such an overrated game, played it, beat it, didnt shed a tear or felt anything. Its just sheep mentality, someone says "this game is so emotional :(" so now everyone must say "yeah its the saddest game ever made!!" and btw tc there has been a ********** of romantic games.

because developers don't create games that they think that are going to flop. Doing something different is the biggest risk you can take in this industry, especially when its biggest market is America and they only care about cookie-cutter FPS games.

There have been quite a few games that aren't classified as Romance but have romance in them.

Simple. In Western culture 'Romance' is generally for women. Women are not the biggest demographic for selling video games to and therefore very few games are based around it.

Now if a developer were to make a game where the main protagonist, a women, got to ruin mens lives by trying to 'change them' into some sort of shopping slave whilst stopping them from doing anything they enjoy i'm sure it would sell millions.

[QUOTE="IAmNot_fun"]Date sims?Meeeper282

No a love sim, for example, you're a middle aged investment banker looking for love, but you cant seem to find someone, then before you know it, you meet this girl in a cafe, 6 months later they are happily together untill he cheats on her, and she kicks him out, now it's up to him to fix this.

great plot aye?

Play Catherine, Do it!

[QUOTE="SNIPER4321"]Romantic Games??? Muahahhahahahahaha I even Hate romantic movies. We prefer Badass Manly games. I dont want Romance in my Games. why JRPG fans want romance in every game?? Games like Stalker and Metro doesnot need romance or will be ruined..

Romantic games would be boring anyway and would only cater to girl gamers.

I think a lot of gamers are just too immature for this. Especially SW, look at people's sigs with half naked girls, those people are definitely kids in high school or something and they can't get real girls, they don't know what it means to be in love with a woman.

Only a few games attempted this, FFX and Mass Effect kinda does it. But nothing on the scale of Titanic or anything.

I came here just to say this, but you've already done it for me :P Btw, I thought you retired from SW pal? Basically, this thread has proven that the industry either doesn't demand it, or is generally too immature for it. There's also the fact that in most cases that romance is handled, it's handled pretty awkwardly.

I've said this plenty of times. Sony should start making Romantic Comedies games. That will attract the female gamer like nuts. :P

because most gamers cant relate

#69 Posted by GreekGameManiac (6439 posts) -

The real reason is sex. They cant even show an ass before the ESRB labels it A for adult, which will kill any chance of the game selling. Games = show a butt = labeled as Adult Movies = show **** ass, penis vagina = still can be rated R only Games are treatly unfairly in comparison, I say protest the ESRB or get someone newfr3ddiemercury

Ikr?

F*cking annoying.

I say screw society,and do what you want already.

$%%@^& Americans affecting stuff like that with their culture tabboos...

Word. Like seriously, if you need to emotionally pander to the player by: [spoiler] Giving someone autism and creating awkward, implausible situations out of it. [/spoiler] You're just going for the low blow. Man that game insulted my intelligence so much.
