, are a video game subgenre of simulation games with romantic elements.
Dating sims originated in Japan, where traditional dating sims, such as Love Plus, are dialog-heavy and focus on time management.
Games that try to simulate real-world activities (like driving vehicles or living the life of someone else) with as much realism as possible.
Simulators generally require more study and orientation than arcade games, and the best simulators are also educational.
This gives the games more replay value, since the player can focus on a different girl each time, trying to get a different ending.
Dating sims often revolve almost entirely around relationship-building, usually featuring complex character interactions and branching dialogue trees, and often presenting the player's possible responses word-for-word as the player character would say them.
