Dating sims are almost exclusively Japanese, to the point where popular Japanese media can recognizably parody aspects of the dating sim genre.However, the whole plot (or at least the pieces available, due to still being incomplete) takes a life of itself after the beginning.In fact, besides the premises and the characters' appearance and basis of their personalities, and a few scenes, the only things remaining are a few plot skeletons.There have been multiple spin-offs (such as puzzle games) and multiple adaptations (such as an anime, Tokimeki Memorial Only Love.) Aspects of dating sims have been transferred into modern non-dating sim games.Modern games have optional "social link" features, where you can build up relationships between supporting characters granting different benefits.The one thing these games have in common is they’re all simulation games, so you can create your own world and explore it as often as you like!
