      >husband/boyfriend is shown to be neglectful, possibly abusive, or is themselves cheating on their lover. Girl gets seduced by a non-scumbag and ends in a better relationship

      I liked The Last Story but the romance in that game was kind of boring mainly because Calista herself is kind of boring and the fact that she falls in love with Zael in the span of 5 seconds without any buildup. I wish the game was designed around choosing from one of the girls like in Dragon Age and also having the option to choose no one so you get more fun bromance scenes with a whole party instead

    Haven had a cute couple deeply in love. Call of the Sea painted a pretty picture of the main character and her husband's relationship, that dramatically pays off in the end. Cyberpunk did a pretty job of having your love interest call you up or text you just over little things because they want to impress you and be with you. A Space for the Unbound, not a love story per se, but I always tear up at people going to lenghts for someone others have given up on. Vampire The Masquerade Redemption, mostly damsel in distress stuff, but hearing how poetic Cristof waxes for Anezka drove me on.

    There really isnt much love stories in games that arent just masturbatory, but you can still find some here and there.

        I think what makes it funny is that the "Antagonist" of the game is just the hero of every other JRPG abusing his position of power and authority the way the players of all those games would if they were allowed to.
        It's basically a Rance game simulator, but instead of playing Rance you're just one of the dumb frick male NPCs watching as Rance fricks every attractive woman in town into submission, including the ones that matter to you.

        If the plot was the exact same only you played as the dragon knight guy instead of Mars, it'd be one of the most forgettable, cookie cutter adult RPG maker games in existence.

      Everything was so overdramatic that it came off hilarious.
      Only time I saw the appeal of NTR.

      WTF is this game, some JRPG cuck simulator?

    13 Sentinels romance is hit or miss but of the endgame pairings Nenji/Tomi, Okino/Hijiyama, and Keitaro/Natsuno were cute and had good chemistry. Shu/Yuki were entertaining but I can't see them having a kid already when she barely seems to tolerate him. Juro and Megumi is conceptually fine, there just needed to be more time spent on Juro being attracted to her and regaining his memories so the confession doesn't feel so out of left field. Ei and Iori is the only one I'd say is outright bad since he barely seems to give a shit about her and is more concerned with Ryoko for 90% of his story, and Iori is just a shoujo protag who wants to frick his brains out since he's hot, tall and mysterious (and owns a sick bike), they don't even show up together in the end

      I'm not mad about Iori, because 426 gets his own version in the end, and it was the most insane way to end the game.
      She does seem to be drawn towards edgelords and shoujo protagonists like the best Juro.

        I was just disappointed since nothing really happens in her route and it's just a shoujo story played straight (and I actually like the otome dark knight trope). With how important the Morimura's are I was expecting some crazy reveals but she ends up being the least involved character in the overarching narrative, which is probably by design but still. Seeing 426 and Morimura go back to their teen forms in the ending was pure catharsis though

    Wanting an NTR situation to play out is a shit tier fetish as it is envisioned by and for the morally perverse.
    What happens here is as such, a twist of the moral values. The person who is at fault for cheating is not and should not be the non-cheating side but the cheating side.
    Also, by fapping to NTR you are willing to associate sexual pleasure with emotional masochism, which in turn makes you less likely to enjoy a healthy relationship IRL.
    >inb4: seethe, cope, etc
    Just face it. You're literally killing your own brain, with those shitty tier fetiches that will only do you harm in the long run.

        The NTRgay thinks himself clever for turning pain into pleasure, but it is only when the man becomes superior to pleasure, that he becomes also superior to pain.

          I forget the name, something like five nights or days or something.
          About a succubus making MC endure ASMR teasing shit, after each night she asks if YOU came. If you say yes the game ends and she fricks off with a black guy who got incubus powers or some shit.
          If you endure she curses the nig to have a small dick and happily ever after.

          What utterly moronic mental gymnastics

          The notes in the game are revealed in the end to actually written by someone a guy tricking others to give him their wives

      I dunno. I read the OP manga and it was actually kind of sweet, even if the woman WAS cheating on her absent husband and throwing away her marriage that's been an emotional dead zone for years.
