yeah it was Harvest moon till I came across something in ShojoBeat about one of their mangas having an game to it. Really loving the manga at the time I looked it up on google and never found anything on it, but I did discover Yo-Jin-Bo and Otome games because of that wild goose chase. X3

I came across otome games when a friend introduced a few to me (Other Age, Harvest Moon, and a few others).

I was introduced to VNs by a guy I dated back in 2008. At the time I played mostly eroges (the first one I played was Crescendo). I have always liked this "choose your own adventure" type of gameplays and I love reading, so I was instantly in love with VNs in general.

After some time I decided to search for more female oriented VNs and stumbled across that english patch for Starry Sky ~in Spring~. It went downhill from there  :p

I guess I was first introduced to the concept of otome games when I found out about a Chinese Saint Seiya fan otome game called Summery Fancy (does this date me? XD;) but I didn't really pay attention since my Chinese was terrible (and still is orz) so I couldn't figure out how to download it. And then mannyy years later, my friend got into Hatoful Boyfriend, I decided to play it for laughs ... and got emotionally compromised instead. I started searching for more games after that but since I ownED a Mac and didn't figure out how to install Bootcamp yet, ended up searching for otome games on the iOS store, found some, and then my life spiraled out of control from there hahahaha.

Once upon a time long long ago It started because I read manga and watched anime all the time. I was also interested in creating my own manga. So one day surfing around on tips on making a manga I happened to stumble upon others playing cheesy flash games and online dating sims 
 from then there on I played and played all i could get my hands on in my spare time. until I finally bumped into otome games and my life was complete.. But I still stop to appreciate most flash made date games and online dating sims don't get me wrong cause not only are us otaku and otome gamers awesome but our work too *3*

First time?...a friend gave me Princess Debut as a birthday gift. I liked it at first, but it grew boring after a while. Reintroduced by animanga based off Otome games. Then I did research and been playing them ever since.

Harvest Moon definitely. Then I lived on a forum specific for Koei otoges (La Corda, Harukanaru & Angelique) for a few years being introduced to so many of them from then on. :p

My first VN was Clannad - I played it after I watched the anime,mainly because I was very fond of Tomoyo. I never managed to get to a good end though - since I didn't know how VNs work I always ended up being on events that had nothing to do with Tomoyo,so... she dumped me in the end xD.

I was already into bishoujo VNs, and one day I landed in the world of otoge. That is pretty much it, and now I am stuck in bishounen land. Not that I'm against it~

I began playing otome games when I started to watch reverse harem anime. People in the comments would be like, "This is based off the game." or "The game is totally better." And yea...So I researched and downloaded a bunch of stuff. Then one day when I was trying to find some otome games... I found this forum.

Most boring back-story ever: nothing special, I just accidentally stumbled on some dating games for boys, try them out, and yup, I have no interest in making girls fall for me, so decided to dig up some GxB games, I found some online dating sims on deviant actually~
And there goes the story...

I realised the value of otome games when I played P3 for girls, really. As soon as I played it for girls, I was like - there's no way I wanna play this for guys.. I don't get a high when the girls fall for my character :p

Then I saw the artwork for Otome and I was like  Embarassed/ Kyaa!  Embarassed/ Kyaa! I mean the free ones are also of such high quality that people would readily pay money for this stuff. At least some of the doujins I saw online (still downloading them my net is sooo slow  Very Mad )

Yeah mine's a pretty dull backstory too  sleepy

And oh yeah the first visual novel which I had heard about was Higurashi and it had an awesome manga based on it which I enjoyed thoroughly. At that time I was very keen to get the visual novel since the story was like so awesome but I could never find it  Rolling Eyes/ pissed

I first heard of otome when I saw my brother playing a Clannad game where you play as Tomoya and you get to decide who he ends up with. I wasn't completely sure what an otome was, though, until I watched Amnesia~ yay!

Oh boy. Long story on my end.
XD First I got into the games way back with harvest moon. But I hadn't got the patience for that type of game. So I ditched it. Then a friend introduced me to some otome animes and wham! I started playing some Otome games. I think the first I enjoyed was Princess Debut? ^_^' But my first serious one was Second Reproduction or Hakuouki...

I'm trying to remember now; it feels like a long time ago.... I remember hearing that there were dating sims for guys, and one day I just got curious about whether such a thing existed for a female audience. I typed "dating sims for girls" into Google and found a Pacthesis game -- the culture festival game which was new at the time -- uploaded on a random free game website. I hugely enjoyed it and went looking everywhere for similar free games. There wasn't much in the english world to choose from other than Nummyz and Pacthesis (good ones though), but I soon found out about games like Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side which had been english patched, and thus began my spiral into beautiful otome hell.

For me it started with one of those flash games you'd see on those "free online games" sites way back when. Specifically it was Other Age. When I played it I was like "I just clicked on some choices and I got meself this cute guy! I wonder if there's more of these :p ???" Then I googled for more and it went on from there  smile
