What's your opinion of games with a heavy dating sim gameplay like the recent Persona titles and the Mass Effect series?

I honestly don't like it. It feels like a cheap move to substitute actual gameplay with cutscenes, which are much cheaper to make compared to extra gameplay segments.

Why are they so popular? I honestly don't get it.

What? That's not how budget works.

Yeah... Mass effect suffered so much and lost so much because they spent the budget on romance subplots that were completley optional....okay then...
Now playing : Mass Effect, Bayonetta.

The dating in Persona is hardly dating sim.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

It's no wonder TC doesn't get it, he doesn't even know what he's talking about.
The console with the greater spec generally loses.
