Catherine: "One Of The Best Games This Year" (Hooked Gamers)

Love is a popular topic for our culture. Romeo and Juliet remains one of the most popular works of literature hundreds of years after it was written. Movies about love and relationships are as common as a pigeon, bringing in millions of dollars whenever they’re released. Poets from as far back as the Ancient Greeks have mused on love. Love is commonly expressed through music. As Huey Lewis & the News sang, “make one man weep, make another man sing”. One of Pat Benetar’s greatest hits, Love is a Battlefield, remains a classic. But as it turns out, love is not a battlefield, but a puzzle game, and a damn hard one at that.

Is this game a porno or is it just an extremely graphic title?

OdinFallen2513d ago

It's graphic but there isn't as much visual sexual material as one might think. Most of it is actually innuendo, but that's not to say there isn't some questionable looking thins.

If you think this game is an extremely graphic title, then you might be too young to be on this site.

Well i have seen a lot of hentai. And this to me looks like a hentai game.

"Well i have seen a lot of hentai. And this to me looks like a hentai game."

That's probably because the marketing for Catherine was a bit...misleading. The picture you see of Catherine showing her cleavage on the box is about as raunchy as the game gets, tbh.

Bimkoblerutso2513d ago (Edited 2513d ago )

Seriously...this is actually one of the few Japanese titles we've gotten over here that handles sexuality with a degree of maturity. The advertising was terrible and gaming sites only reinforced the misconception that it was a raunchy sex-sim.

Kos-Mos2513d ago

Misleading? What on earth are you talking about?

Kamikaze1352513d ago

Like I said...You're too immature to understand this game. There is no nudity at all in this game.

As much as I'd like to agree, I think gamers will pick Uncharted or Skyrim compared to this (I don't play those games though haha, but I have beaten the Uncharted games, but that's really it. No online play).
Unless we all make a plan to make this goty hahaha

Maybe Catherine can win the best new IP this year. Well maybe ^^

CrescentFang2513d ago

Index has stated they plan to expand this as a franchise, but I kind of look at this as a fun project Atlus wanted to do... and I don't like the sound of that. I forgot they have different kinds of awards and such

Best game of the year so far.

I was excited for this game since the first article was released about it in Game Informer. The demo made me nervous I would actually like it, though, honestly.

However, I took a chance and actually bought it today. I'm really happy I did! It's amazing. Really interesting and sucks you in.
