Me: I wanted to tell you about a game i just downloaded.
Me: Just letting you know its really weird…
Me: and its from Japan. Have you ever heard of a dating sim?
Mom: yeah I watched you play that on your computer.
Me: No mom. That is The Sims game, not a dating sim. A dating sim is like a story that you can choose the conversations and actions. Based on what ones you pick, it gives different outcomes. Like goosebump books. But usually you have “bacholers” that your trying to go out with. Its really popular in Japan.
Mom: so your trying to date a virtual person? And they arent real?
Me: yeah pretty much.
Mom: okaaay. And that what you got?
Me: Yes but not exactly. I got one called Hatoful Boyfriend. It-
Mom: Hatoful boyfriend?
Me: Yup and its a dating simulator about pidgeons.
Mom:… . your trying to date the pidegons?
Me:Yup. Well birds in general *shows the title screen
Mom:*takes of glasses and rubs her forhead.
Me: Its weird but it has a really good story and the more stories you complete the more you find out about the doctor and why birds became so intelligent.
Mom: … … where did you come from?
I then took her through the beginning prompt and she lost it at “everybirdie”.
