Dating a gamer

In the early nineties the atmosphere in Japan became more and more hostile towards bishōjo games.

Released in 1994 by Konami who was on the verge of bankruptcy, the platonic dating sim becoming the first major Bishojo game since Koei's release of Night Life. While the title was another eroge title targeted at males for its sexual content, the players began to identify with the protagonist and the idea overcoming "the emotional trials and tribulations of pure love." A late Play Station 2 port removed the sexual content and sold better than the original leading eventually to two anime adaptations. Dōkyūsei, whose gameplay focused on meeting girls and seducing them, established the standard conventions of the dating simulation genre.

Tokimeki Memorial, the first dating sim, featured good graphics, full voice acting, and a role-playing game-like gameplay system.

Prior to 1985, girls were generally drawn either as normally proportioned adults or super deformed children.

Some games involved elements of force and brutality.

Both were first released on the PC with erotic scenes, which were subsequently removed in their console ports.

The bishojo gaming industry has resisted the transition into 3D graphics because of the blocky and distorted nature when viewed zoomed up close.

In 2001 Tokimeki Memorial 3 became the first bishojo game to break this trend.

However, low sales make it likely that other companies will stick with the traditional 2D graphics.

Particularly notable in this respect are Leaf's To Heart (1997), and Key's Kanon (1999).

Even though their gameplay involved little more than scrolling through text, they became hits largely due to the quality of their writing and characterization.
