Does In Game-Romance Have a Legitimate Place in Games?

Throughout a growing number of games (one blaring example being Bioware’s Mass Effect or Dragon Age series), players have the option to "romance" a character, through completion of side quests, dialogue, gifts, etc. What does this add to the game, if anything? Does it take anything away?

  • Another thing that could be focused in is the "role-play" aspect. Some games (such as Bethesda games) have always had that rpg aspect that ties into the general style and playing experience of the game. Other's however, don't really need it. A good example could be the Witcher series. You make decisions and romance, but ultimtaely the game is based and adapted (pretty heavily) off the Witcher book series. Therefore is this rpg aspect really necessary? – Mela 4 years ago

Why is putting out an incomplete game the *thing* now? Take the Sims for example: $60 for the new game and it’s always a given that you’ll have to buy expansion packs to diversify game play because, let’s face it, the base game gets boring as hell after a week or two.

Meditation usually helps me when overcoming writer’s block. Things just come so much more naturally in that state – why? Maybe it’s because the cogs are turning so much more easily.
