I've read up some things about this game lately, and it REALLY does seem like the closest thing to an authentic non-flesh girlfriend. So authentic it made wives jealous.

Why I didn't post this in the gaming section was because I want the discussion to be more about it's moral/ethical implications and anything else about the game that's not particularily related to strictly gameplay. It'd be cool to hear from people who have had first-hand accounts on this game. The discussion is not limited to this question but to start off I'll ask:
What's the advantages to having a Love Plus girlfriend as opposed to actual females?

Please state whether or not you've actually played the game or know someone who does.

I have played it and thought it was meh but some people just do not like real females with the fact of them getting hurt or the pain if some one cheats on them etc. Sigh i have never had a gf bu that's my own fault i am not really out going due to mental health issues and it's hard for me to trust people In real life because I don't want to be hurt in the end. That game though didn't fill the void they are 2d characters designed to be perfect for person which in reality there is no such as a perfect person what so ever. I can dwell more on this subject but I will choose not too for my own personal reasons but i will leave with a pic of why I hate 40% of the opposite gender below. Also if his wife could not tell the difference between reality and fiction than she fits into the stereotype that all females are dumb which is not true by the way.

Um, they both failed at life. When the Japanese society as a whole encourage and advocate such failed lifestyle through an continuous cycle of collectivism, to elitism, to patriarchy and back again.

Maybe if the husband can afford to go on a compensated dating, then perhaps his wife will have a legitimate reason to divorce him. But he, like many other modern Japanese men, are too sissy to even do that.

honestly speaking, im far to ignorant on the culture of japan to give a lagitimate opinion, but i always thought fiction was ficition. Even so, if a man spends more time on games then his wife, he should get a divorce until he learns what marrage/responsibility is about.

Other then that, if balance isnt an issue, i dont see how vitual (fake) girls can be either.peace over war

Speaking from a non-Religious point of view, I would have to say that because the game does not involve any physical action (unless it is done to yourself by yourself), it cannot be adultery, adultery being defined as M-W dictionary as 'voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband'.

Also, a fictional woman does not have the sentient of a real human being, and, being machinery, cannot provide the emotion of love to bestow upon another person. Being therefore without the hope of the return of love, or without the possiblity of providing unconditional caring, happiness arising from this sort of relationship will be very short lasting and leave you with a feeling of emptiness. Should someone turn to such a life, then, as stated above, s/he has failed in it.
