Some girls can’t be alone, they need a boyfriend, someone to be by their side or someone to comfort them during sadness. Cuddling in the warmth embrace of a loving man, snuggling together during rainy days or just a walk in the park while eating ice-cream. Ah, such a beautiful dream. No worries my lonely friends! I have a great plan – let’s play otome games! For anyone who is new to otome games, you are welcome to tag along. The word otome means girl in Japanese, if translated literally it means girl games or female-centred games. Otome games attract females to their games which mostly revolves around the female player developing romantic relationships with the characters in the game. Okay, let’s get started!
