They have Bishoujo games (beautiful girls), and Ren’ai (romance) games, both categories do not necessarily mean “dating” as literally as I took it.

The term caught on, because the Ren’ai games released in the early 90’s like These are just some of the ones known here in the US. A well known sub genre of the Dating Sim is “Eroge” (Erotic game, aka hentai game , or H-game), and Dating Sims themselves are part of a broader genre known as Visual Novels, which I’ll discuss in a future post.

I do not know what is considered to be the first “dating sim”, the early H-game Dokyusei (1992) seems as good a candidate as any.
