Can virtual dating affect relationships?
A new game cartridge for Nintendo DS has a new dating sim called Love Plus, and I wanted to know what all the hype was about. I found that with this new gaming technology, many people are getting hooked and they are spending more time on this then on real life. This dating sim can make you think that you really have a relationships with the character and can take you out of reality and into a virtual world. It is hard enough to deal with normal person to person relationships and now you have to wonder if this type of technology is good.
Relationships with your virtual character can start out as formal at first, and can become more demanding of the person's attention because this one is really well-made. Many of these Japanese games can be purchased by Americans from J List.
There is a lot of controversy in adult virtual games. Many men and women are attracted to these types of programs, but I want to know how far will the designers of these games go.
I think that many women will start to complain how their family lives were disrupted by their husbands addictions to Konami's hit. I wonder if this engagement with someone in a game can impact a couple's relationship.
