Dating sims without hentai can be tons of fun.

All the Tokimeki Memorial games are fun (mentioned them before). Sentimental Graffiti is pretty good. And, the Sakura Taisen games aren't purely dating-sim, since there are turn-based strategy 'boss battles', but the dating-sim elements are also fun.

Playing a dating-sim because it has hentai in it is like trying to look at porn by sifting through a few hours of a story first. The genre of a hentai dating-sim is flawed because the only element that's worth it to focus on is the hentai part, not the dating-sim part, since focusing on the latter is like trying to invest in the plot of a porn flick.

Oh... so you really mean dating sim, Dating sim? Not Dating Sim / Visual Novel / ADV game etc...
Like [url=Fate / stay night is a Visual Novel. Utawarerumono would be a ADV / Strategy game...
I don't think I've played an actual Dating sim... well maybe Bloody Bride counts [translated vampire dating game for PSX lol] I guess that kind of game could be interesting... but it sounds more like a doujin fan service game, rather than a real Lunar game. I'm more interested in the world and history of Lunar, than dating Luna, Jessica or new people ;p Not that it wouldn't be interesting/fun lol but... just not Complete quality...

On the other hand if you meant dating sim / VN etc...
So like Phantom of Inferno / Hourglass of Summer type choose a path end up maybe with various girls, I think that would be better suited to a real Lunar game...

True Love is different from the norm. It has skill points and things like that.

Also, what if they made an H-harvest moon? :lol:

Think about it guys, how many times have you felt unable to start a conversation? With that shirt, you'll have no problems starting and ending those awkward conversations that we miss so much of! I'm fairly certain that the explanation of what an HDS is will be enough to keep any girl occupied for hours while she files a restraining order!

By now, for only $22.99

If you want H-dating sims with good stories, look no further than Kanon, Air, and Fate/stay night. Played all three, like them too.
Also an expert on the Phantasy Star tetralogy, Ys, Star Ocean, Dirty Pair, and most things Universal Century Gundam
