Do VNs actually help you get a real life grill?! (Game Theory)


Recommended Posts

So game theory finally released its episode on dating sims (2 years late), and I was expecting something along the lines of "How unrealistic dating sims are", but I'm pleasantly surprised by this theory that claims dating sims actually help in a relationship. While I know there's some lines to be drawn between dating sims and VNs, he uses quite a few weeby dating sims as examples like huniepop, even some that are considered VNs like uh... Hatoful Boyfriend. I also never knew Love Hina was a VN/dating sim, so that's pretty interesting

So at this point I assume we VN elites are chick magnets now? Has my life been a lie?!

Meh, I expected an actual GAME theory, not a bunch of theories on human relationships. All he did in the video was point out this very basic human concept and how it's applied in dating sims, which isn't really all that fascinating to me at least. Like, yeah, no shit a dating sim attempts to simulate how dating works irl, you don't need to go that deep into it. Using a dating sim to improve your dating life is just as useful as reading books and articles on the same matter, it's all just an attempt at making dating a systematic thing you can rinse and repeat until you hopefully succeed. In the end, if you're relying on anything like a dating sim to improve your actual dating life, you're probably already doing it wrong; take it from the guy who plays tons of Chinese porn games and, according to this video, should have multiple useful tips and tricks for dating, yet for some reason does not have a girlfriend.

Maybe part 2 will be more exciting, but honestly I expected a bit more from Matt with such a big genre to tackle.

Then again, from that ungodly clickbaity thumbnail, I shouldn't have expected much.

I never knew that VNs were ever meant to help get a girl - I always saw it as a form of entertainment and diversion. :P Though, I soppose some people can walk away with insight on the concept of empathy (or sometimes the lack of). After all, there is a right and wrong way to treat a person - but that's hardly rocket science - treat others how you would want to be treated. Has almost always worked for me.

Sorry, but everyone knows comic books are where the girls are at.

or did that only work for me?

Won't lie, I did pick up some sexual techniques solely through reading some VNs back when I was lot younger. :makina: I'm sure at least one or two girls are thankful I read those (not that I would ever admit such a thing to them)

 

Setting aside the really stupid and biologically incorrect stuff. (ie, the vagina is not a gateway to the stomach, no matter what some VN/doujin writers seem to imagine.) :sachi:

what was this topic about again? oh right! game theory. i kind of stopped watching game theory since mat uses the same stock photos of him over and over again in every single video he makes. he strikes me as a bit of a narcissist.
