So i was browsing this blog made by an otome gamer, and came across this post where she rants and complains about the content in R-18 Otome games.
First, for those who don't know what an Otome game.
It's basically a Visual novel targeted at the female audience, where you date different guys and go through different routes and endings.
Read the post before going any further:
tl;dr: R-18 otome games for women «
I actually found that post hilarious and immature, it seems she's underage or something, People need to be 18+ to play R-18 games.
So here's what she complains about and here's my opinions.
Heroine Getting raped
First of all, i think rape is a common theme in any R-18 material, But since this is an Otome game, where you have lots of choices and lots of routes, blame no one but yourself for picking the wrong one. not to mention there is a fairly big audience for this who have rape fantasies.
Heroine getting abused & humiliated
Again, the game has different routes and options. and again, there's obviously an audience who likes this kind of stuff.
Heroine getting sexed up by things other than the guy’s ding dong
Someone apparently never heard of foreplay or oral.
Heroine getting drugged & turning into a sex doll
I said it before and i'm gonna say it again, the game gives you alot of routes and options, you picked this one, deal with it. there's the target audience for this.
Heroine’s voice being louder & prouder than the guy whose route I’m on
Excuse me, but do you want the guy to scream or cry while he's sexing you?
Sticking it in the pooper
Now this one is really silly, i actually sat there and laughed for hours at her prudeness. Anal sex is something you see everywhere and i don't see the problem with it, if you don't like it you could just skip it or something.
Heroine constantly saying no no stop even when it’s clear both parties are mutually accepting of screwing each other
That's just a porno thing (It exists in real life too), you're playing a porno game, and i don't see how this is a problem at all.
Heroine being treated like a whore if god forbid she actually enjoy sex
I have mixed feelings about this one.
guys and male characters are always called perverts and stuff when they barely fantasize, so i guess it's some kind of equality thing going on here? i dunno.
The amount of happy endings being overshadowed by the amount of bad endings
You either barely played any otome games, or you forgot the fact that you are playing an otome game, since they're usually filled with drama.
Eroscene where all the clothes are on
Lol...I'm not even gonna talk on this one.
Well there you have it guys, don't get me wrong, she is spot on some points, but the fact that she's complaining about something that is obviously not targeted at her is just plain annoying, it's a R-18 game, you should expect stuff beforehand.
Anyways, girls (or guys), what do you think? Write your opinion below.
Do you think she's right or wrong? what do you think she's right about and what do you think she's wrong about? Let the discussion begin!
