What I really meant is that words like "otome" don't tell me whether I'll enjoy a given game.

That's pretty accurate, but then again, a general genre doesn't really give me an idea of whether or not I'll enjoy a game either.
For example, in general, I'm not a big shooting game kind of fan, things like Call of Duty or Halo or Gears of War (except the first entry when it was more of a survival horror type game) aren't fun for me.
I still enjoy Borderlands 2 when played cooperatively, Earth Defense Force, and TimeSplitters, because they have a "fun" factor that I enjoy.
I don't usually enjoy platformers, but I enjoy almost all Kirby games.

So, I mean, any genre terms are kinda gonna be like that depending on the person and the game. With "otome", you at least have an idea of what it's about, and it's more specific than the general term "Visual Novel", or even the generic "Adventure game" which covers stuff from Zelda all the way to purely kinetic novels, at least according to gamefaqs.

Yeah, I'm with Tim in that no genre is a guarantee for me, not even a developer or a series. There's always the risk that I'll be disappointed. But knowing that something is otome at least gives me more confidence that I'll like it than if something is in a genre I generally don't like.

I consider Otome a genre of games, and just like with all genre's there is plenty of variety within said genre.

Just like you can say something is a social-sim JRPG, and you will be able to find vastly different games within that sub-category....

I view Otome as a sub-sect of Visual Novels, and then within that sub-sect you can still have a wide range of variety....

Yeah, I was just too lazy to type out Uta no Prince-sama, haha. It's an idol-themed otome franchise, and at this point, it's probably just as much about the anime, music CDs, rhythm games, etc. as it is about the VNs. I don't really see the appeal myself, but I've never been big on idol-based media, not unless it subverts the concept. I'd give the games a go if they were available in English, though (on something other than mobile).

I agree that Hakuoki is way more appealing for how the story comes together as a whole than for any individual guy within it. But I guess the popularity of the game boosts the popularity of the guys.

lol

Which is exactly what I was referring to when I said "on something other than mobile".
