Various dating sims and stuff like Catherine seem to look into this a bit more. You'll probably be hard pressed to find a western game that actually looks at relationships and sex that isn't just smut.unacomn said:"Some people look at porn, others go to nightclubs - I played GTA III."
Reminds me of my high-school years, though for different reasons.
You do bring up an interesting idea. Romance and sexuality in general tend to be marginalized as a side thing, some sort of gimmick, a mini-game even. I don't recall any games that deal with that, properly (properly properly) as their core concept. That's not only an untapped idea, but an untapped market, were I to judge by the the appeal of romance movies.
Unfortunately, making something like that a reality would be difficult, for a variety of reasons, like repeating the whole "sexbox, debby does star wars" media frenzy.
I love how, after all that was talked about in the article, -this- is what makes the comments. Well played, my friend, well played. I personally, happen to be one of those perverts who plays both sides.V8 Ninja said:
Very true. Unfortunately we still live in a world where those who don't fit into the "normal" boxes are suppressed, abused, and looked down upon because they're different. I had to hide my identity for a long time, because the punishment for being different around here was nothing less than death.thatsthespirit said:It's not unawareness, it's suppression. People can know what they like but because parents, peers, TV etc. tells them it's something grubby or weird they do these mental contortions to try and keep it buried.

People prefer Pokemon over Digimon? What is this sacrilege? Burn the heretics! Everyone knows Digimon is the superior franchise.V8 Ninja said:
