So I guess my answer is an incredibly unhelpful "yes." In your Let’s Play you roleplay with a sort of ironic distance, you try to give character to the protagonist, and of course you give them wonderful names like Balls Mahoney.
Is it because you have to tell your own story to feel involved in a story that isn’t that interactive ?
It also makes it more shocking when a storyline turns sour, like with Saeki constantly hitting Balls Mahoney over the course of Tokimeki Girls Side 2.
I don’t think I could fully enjoy something if I couldn’t make fun of it, but I also think that my joking about something would fall flat if some part of me didn’t love it.
And there’s certainly an audience for romances, as checking the fandoms for any of the games you have listed will easily show.
My favorite titles would have to be the class=''Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side] games.
The genre basically started targeting men, and the genre remains popular with men in Japan, but I think we’ve seen more embrace of it by women in the West. Anyone who likes romance and isn’t afraid of being judged for it ?
I find that once people find out that it’s not all adult games that devolve into the worst of what the Internet has to offer, a lot of people are interested.
I blame it on the old Wizardry games, I made up my own stories as I sat there drawing out maps on graph paper and grinding through the same group of 6 monsters again and again.
I think the stories most of these games are interesting enough to stand on their own.
