Both Nintendo and Sony disallowed adult video games on their consoles.Games also started to appear on Windows as it grew in popularity. In it, before any eroticism, the user has to first win the affection of one of a number of female characters, making the story into an interactive romance novel. Soon afterwards, the video game Otogirisou on the Super Famicom attracted the attention of many Japanese gamers.This is a must-play for anyone with a sense of humor tilted toward the weird who also appreciate intense storytelling and memorable characters. However a new re-make of the game is coming out that will hopefully solve that.
NEC was behind its competitors in terms of hardware (with only 16 colors and no sound support) and needed a way to regain control of the market. The first commercial erotic computer game, Night Life, was released by Koei in 1982.This has some of the most incredible and thorough writing I have come across in a dating-sim period. A full range of emotions that I would be hard-pressed to squeeze out of a video game... have their origins in the early 1980s, when Japanese companies introduced their own brands of microcomputer to compete with those of the United States.FM Towns also received many games, more so than Sharp X68000 or MS-DOS, whilst the MSX platform (which had many eroge games in the 1980s) was nearing the end of its lifetime by now.Eroge was much less common on consoles - only NEC's PC Engine series had officially licensed adult games, and from the mid-90s, Sega's Saturn.
