Surprise! I love dating sims. There’s something about being able to fall in love over and over again that gets me. Here are my three favorite things about dating sims.
1. The diverse settings. They seem to be as realistic or as fantastical as imaginable and it works.
2. Of course the main appeal of dating sims is the romancing, but there are quite a few that contain f/f and m/m romances in addition to m/f ones.
3. No matter how cheesy the plot outside of the romance is, the romances keep you playing and invested.
