Hi everyone, I'm looking for games where the storyline is primarily based on romance and relationships. All the games I have played thus far are games that makes you kill stuffs so I wanna look into something new. Thanks!

Build a love shack in minecraft. There's plenty of pigs and sheep to go around! Creativity knows no limits.

As Romance of Rome opens, you learn that imperial relics have been stolen, and the Emperor promises to marry his beautiful daughter to any person who returns them. Only you can help Marcus find the stolen relics, and win the heart of the Emperor’s daughter.
Can you help win the hand of marriage?

Hooray for steam's search function.

Braid also has a (somewhat) romantic storyline.

Hm. Purchasing a woman with antiques = winning her heart.

Okay.

Plenty of dating sims. :D I know there's one of the XBL network that sells for only a few dollars.

Does it have to be for the PC? The Harvest Moon series has a large "winning over the heart" aspect in all their games. Rune Factory does too, but that was only winning over girls so I didn't care enough to play it.

There are actually a lot more romance games aimed towards guys rather than girls, now that I think about it.

It seems like a lot of these kinds of games never get translated into English.

Two suggestions already for a non-consensual simulator, and the next person who finds that funny will be given a clip round the ear by a grown-up.

Wait for RAGE, then you can romance some mutants right in the face with your romance gun.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romance_of_the_Three_Kingdoms_%28video_game_series %29)

Plenty of "romance" in there, "relationships" too. :cool:

P.S. "Would you kindly"? I am wondering if I made this suggestion because I wanted to or I was brainwashed to follow the command.

As stated above, most "dating sims" and visual novels would qualify. A few specific suggestions:


Re: Alistair (http://sakevisual.com/realistair/), a free game that should give you a nice taste of the genre. One of its potential problems is that you play as the girl, which may make the experience slightly weird if you're a guy, YMMV on that.
Katawa Shoujo (http://katawa-shoujo.com/), another free visual novel made by... uhh... people from The Imageboard That Must Not Be Named. Yeah. I haven't played it yet, but it was highly recommended and from what I gather, it's quite tasteful in spite of its premise and origins. Also free.
Shira Oka (http://www.impulsedriven.com/shiraoka), a western-developed (but still anime-inspired) dating sim. The game is slightly expensive and in spite of that the visuals aren't that great, but the writing is brilliant, and for these kinds of games that's what counts.

I would mention the website to buy these kinds of games but it's NSFW so I won't.

The Sims? Also, there was a game that a friend of mine used to play, it's called Singles and it's supposed to be all about romances. Don't know if it's any good, though.

I knew of this great romance RPG that used my right hand. I always won until the accident. Now I can't play.

Mortal Kombat.

It's a game where you romance the ♥♥♥♥ out of people's faces until you ram your romance through their chest and rip their love out.
