Regarding BL games...

#1 Post by Aka-kami » Wed Jun 09, 2010 1:15 am

I just wanted to know how much of the LSF community loves/likes/dislikes/hates BL.

Yes this means I intend on making one.

Greetings from San Fransisco.
See ya.

I don't really care for BL since it doesn't interest me much (I just love otome games more). I don't mind light fluff though, but even then it's not enough for me to really like it. If you can make a really good story with BL in it, I could take a gander

You'll find that a lot of people here appreciate BL. We're a pretty perverse diverse community. :D

Me too, but I really enjoy Dream Savior Gakuen because of the faceless Main Character and I always pretend that the main character is actually a girl :D

I'm personally not a fan of BL but I am sure there is a good audience waiting for original english game release!

Not a big fan...

Even though I seem to love shounen-ai anime and dramas.
-Kyou Kara Maou
-Personal taste (K-drama)
-Monochrome Factor
-Various Mangas

But for some reason when it makes the jump to yaoi... I don't enjoy it as much. Which is weird, because I thought maybe I would..?

So I guess as long as it's not too 'intimate' I like it?

There was a point in time, many ages ago, when I read straight fanfiction...And then I discovered BL. Now, I've seen just about every shounen-ai/yaoi anime in existence, played every commercial BL game with an English translation, adorn my bedroom with all sorts of BxB paraphernalia...Okay, perhaps not that last, but I digress.

The point is, you can rest assured that you'll have at least one guaranteed player.
And actually, the other BL games that've been released on this forum seem to have done pretty well, and with the popularity of the genre, you'll have no trouble getting people to play your game elsewhere as well.

I don't *hate* BL games (heck, I'm even booked to draw for one in a couple of months x'D ), but I can't say I like it.
I don't mind a BxB relationship in a good story, but I certainly don't look for stories centered on BxB relationships :P

I more like hinted games, but it all depends on the game.. I like it where theres girls in the story too,, but as long as it's not too angsty.. but BL tends too make male characters more feminine.. so a good character development..


all that and i'm sure i'll like it.

I'm not a big fan and probably wouldn't play a game that was all BxB. Nothing against it, it just doesn't interest me that much. I do enjoy certain specific BxB relationships, and would probably be more interested in the game if it were mostly BxG with one BxB route, rather than one of these settings where suddenly EVERYONE IS GAY for no obvious reason.

Basically, I'm more interested if the relationship is heavily emotionally charged and taboo in some way. A BxG game where you have an evil male adversary and then have the possibility to Foe Yay with him... hot!

I have nothing against BL either, but I wouldn't play one unless it was really deep and the focus of the relationship was on the relationship itself, rather than anything sexual.

Don't worry, I had to google it too. It stands for "boy love".

I'm fine with it. Just... don't make the men too uke. Being gay doesn't equal being weak and girlish.
