Biweekly Poll Talkback
So, after telling everyone that voting in polls matters, I think I should actually open up some sort of discussion area so you guys can expand on your thoughts rather than just leave me a vote. So here you go. The most recent poll was about which "types" in dating sims you rather dislike.
Tsundere 13 (27%)
The tsundere is the girl who never admits her feelings, and defaults to abusing the guy she likes (verbally, physically or in other ways) instead of actually coming out and saying it. I remember a time when the tsundere were very popular, and in small doses, it's an endearing trait. I was never a fan of the overly violent punching version, though.
Yandere 20 (42%)
The yandere is the sweet, innocent, perfect girl who turns out to be a raging psycho with murderous intentions and a crazy laugh. It seems to be a wildly popular type to utilize these days, but apparently nearly half of you guys are tired of it.
Kuudere 5 (10%)
The cool girl with almost no emotions. Apparently quite popular. Or at least not hated.
Dojikko 20 (42%)
The clumsy girl. Sometimes considered adorable for her ability to trip over, fall into, break, or otherwise rain destruction upon everything in the vicinity. I personally never understood the charm of tripping a lot, but I hear it's cute.
Yamato Nadeshiko 20 (42%)
The yamato nadeshiko is the ideal Japanese woman. She's beautiful, quiet, and feminine. She cooks, she cleans, she's probably good at music, and she'll always support you. I'm honestly surprised that that many of you are tired of her. Is it because this type is too boring or something?
Ojou 10 (21%)
The rich lady. Sometimes refined, sometimes arrogant, but always with an aura of being better than the rest of us. I actually thought more people would dislike this type. Interesting.
The current poll is about features you can find in VNs. Do you prefer pure story without much interruption, or would you rather make lots of decisions, even if they aren't entirely relevant to the plot? Is a straight story interesting, or do you like puzzles or stat raising to add a little flavor? Do you like the main character to be set in stone, or would you prefer to customize things like name and appearance? Vote on your preferences, and leave a comment here if you like~
