Saw the title on this topic, and its pretty much exactly what i thought it was. Pretty funny to me actually, but why would some guys want broken girls? No disrespect (to the girls anyway) but I can only assume its something along the lines of wanting to date the girl who can't fight back and possibly break you in half, like any normal girl would when you try something you shouldn't, just leave it at that.

Not even close, but points for trying. The main character actually has a disability as well

You're required to play the game to understand the sentiments of the player. Not only must you play it but also understand why the anticipation was so great for it. Once you get these two objectives down you will understand why people chose to play the game. It's not really about dating girls, for a lack or better words and phrasing, it's about why you get them - there's a much deeper meaning along the line. If you understand the basics of eroge and play KS you will understand.

For what it's worth, here's my brief review of the full game (one route completed). First of all, the gamer designers made it abundantly clear on their blog that this game is meant to make people more considerate of other people's problems and handicaps. Second up is the fact that the writing for this game is top-notch. I have played my fair share of visual novels (hentai and non-hentai) and only CLANNAD has better writing than Katawa Shojo. However, Katawa Shojo has a lot more humor that is actually funny than CLANNAD. A slightly graphic example from Emi's route is when she and the main character decide to try anal intercourse. Unlike the typical hentai that will show how awesome and amazing anal is, Emi and the main character both end up disliking it. Their expressions while the script explains their awkwardness and not-very-fun experience is a riot! It takes guts for a visual novel to have the all-powerful sex scene and then decide to say that maybe it isn't for everyone.

Oh and if this wasn't clarified earlier: The main character is hospitalized for having severe heart arrhythmia at the beginning of the game and is then transferred to the disabled's school so that the nursing staff can help him recover.

from what i read and played this game is pretty cool, plus i also like the option to turn on/off the erotic scenes, so basically this can be a simple dating sim or eroge depending on how you want the story to be

I just downloaded it last night, and I am a hair over 4 hours into it. i love this game.

This game would have been perfect when I was ill in 2007. I guess in a way, that's what makes this game special to me. Plus, my late friend had a few disabilities, but it wasn't what defined him. It was all the amazing things he was able to do with his short life, even with how sick he was. "His philosophy in life was that it was not about disabilities but our abilities, and what we could do with them."

I think the whole "omg, it's an eroge game about disabled girls" is certainly blown out of proportion here.
