Dating sim in videogames

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.

Because some people like stories.

I don't think of Persona as a dating sim

What? That's not how budget works.

Skyrim is a dating sim in medieval setting

Yeah... Mass effect suffered so much and lost so much because they spent the budget on romance subplots that were completley optional....okay then...

The dating in Persona is hardly dating sim.

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.
