    I'm a guy but I like otome game is it weird?

    I recenly play otome game like starry sky/ozmafia and fall in love with this kind of game
    I feel really confuse because I'm not interesting in men(in sexual way)
    I really love the feeling when a guy keep coming toward protagonist(girl only)
    So the question is... am I gay? I feel really weird

    No, you're not homosexual or gay. There are guys who play Otome games. However, it is a majority but a minority. 18+ Otome games are pretty much the same as eroge but reverse. You will be just seeing everything through the girl's eyes.

    It is completely normal and fine to play Otome games. It's nice to know others enjoy this genre of games/visual novels. It is fine to have different tastes and be interested in various things. As long as you respect each other.

    Re: I'm a guy but I like otome game is it weird?

    It's clear that a man who kills game characters in fantasy worlds is not a murderer in RL. It's also clear that a man who flirts with male characters in games does not necessarily mean a gay in RL.

    Let's see data about otome games.
    According to "App Ape Analytics" (Japanese mobile app data analysis), about 5~15% of otome game players are male, while 70~75% of unisex game players are male. The following are the ratio of male:female players in popular galges(美少女ゲーム), otome games, and unisex games.

    Galge 1. ラブライブ!スクフェス (Love Live! School Idol Festival)
    Male 46% : Female 54%
    Galge 2. アイドルマスター デレステ (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage)
    Male 64% : Female 36%
    Otome game 1. あんさんぶるスターズ! (Ensemble Stars)
    Male 13% : Female 87%
    Otome game 2. イケメン戦国 (Ikemen Sengoku)
    Male 6% : Female 94%
    Otome game 3. 夢王国と眠れる100人の王子様 (100 sleeping princes & the kingdom of dreams)
    Male 12% : Female 88%
    Unisex game 1. パズル&ドラゴンズ (Puzzle & Dragons)
    Male 69% : Female 31%
    Unisex game 2. モンスターストライク (Monster Strike)
    Male 74% : Female 26%

    Surprisingly, 8 out of top 10 DAU (daily active users) games have more female playerbase than male. Not only otome games but even galges are supported eagerly by female players. It's safe to say that (mobile) games are no longer primarily for men, and female gamers are the key for developers to succeed in the trends; to increase the number of female players in unisex games like puzzle&dragons and to expand the pie of female-favored games like otome games.

    BTW, 乙女ゲーム(otome game) cannot be shortened to "otoge" because it sounds exactly the same as 音ゲー(rhythm game) in Japanese.

    nah, its totally normal ..... to me the game were made to target the audience regardless gender ( the only reason why its call maiden game cause majority of the player is girl but dat doesnt mean guy dont play it. I mean I play yuri game but that doesnt make me like girls in sexual way)

    I know what you mean, attention from guy in the otome game made us player feel well *cough* cough* . Loved. I mean in real life there is slim chances of people to care what you feel but in otome usually they cherish the protagonist in the game like gem, all the sweet talk and stuff , made the player feel special . If the game eroge more like we as a player need to catch the girl.(even if sometime the girl in the game are mostly dere type and at point unbearable but it has its merit point). Lel.. you dont need to be specific sexually oriented just to play certain game... if it has good storyline , and art why not rite?

    There's nothing wrong with liking Otome games. Take it from me: I play Yuri VNs and I'm a straight, married woman. Why do I like them? I like visual novels and reading in general. Despite the genre of the game, I'd play it. I wish I had enough time on my hands to play them all.

    Play what you want and phooey to those who'd judge you!

    I think you should play whatever you like to play =D As mainly an otome player, I've played a variety of games for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the settings, art, curiosity or just for fun =D

    There is nothing wrong with playing games that you like to play regardless of your gender or orientation. I usually play BL and otome games, but if there is no stopping me in enjoying a galge with a good story. The most important thing is you enjoy it!

    I'm a straight cis man and I've enjoyed a couple of otome games. Besides the obvious difference in targeted demographics, they're not that different from male-oriented galge and eroge, really. Some have protagonists that make me want to slap them; some are pure self-insert fantasies; some overly sexualise the Mary Sue heroines and Gary Stu heroes. Within those are pure gems sure to draw in anyone who's a sucker for romance (which I am). I'll even add that I personally find otome games generally better in one certain regard: they don't reduce girls into submissive dolls.
