Though predominantly a visual novel, dating plays a big part of Arcade Spirits. If you choose to play it that way, of course. You play as yourself – a newcomer to a small town who lands a job at a run-down amusement arcade. While you’re there, you’ll quickly forge friendships with a group of interesting (and ultimately lovable) people. Whether you want to simply stay friends or try to become something more is up to you. And if you do decide to go the dating route, you have free reign of who to try and woo.
Not only is Arcade Spirits one of the best dating sim games on PS4, it’s also one of the best visual novels. We love its grounded, relatable story, and its cast of characters is wonderful. Play it as a dating simulator if you want, but even if you don’t want to date any of its cast, you’ll get a huge kick out of the story.
