have their origins in the early 1980s, when Japanese companies introduced their own brands of microcomputer to compete with those of the United States.Competing systems included the Sharp X1, Fujitsu FM-7, MSX, and NEC PC-8801.
Erotic games made the PC-8801 popular, but customers quickly became tired of paying 8800 yen ($85) for such simple games.NEC was behind its competitors in terms of hardware (with only 16 colors and no sound support) and needed a way to regain control of the market. The first commercial erotic computer game, Night Life, was released by Koei in 1982.Early eroge usually had simple stories, some even involving anal, which often led to widespread condemnation from the Japanese media.There is no set definition for the gameplay of eroge, except that they all include explicit sexual content.This most often occurs as hentai scenes of the player character having a sexual encounter with other characters.In 2006, JAST USA announced they would be releasing Enzai as Enzai: Falsely Accused, the first license of a BL game in English translation.
Some fan communities have criticized the choice of such a dark and unromantic game as the US market's first exposure to the genre.
Boys' Love (BL) games (also known as yaoi games) usually refers to eroge oriented around male homosexual couples for the female market.
The defining distinction is that both the playable character(s) and possible objects of affection are male.
Most eroge games, a fairly large library, found its way on the NEC PC-98 platform.
FM Towns also received many games, more so than Sharp X68000 or MS-DOS, whilst the MSX platform (which had many eroge games in the 1980s) was nearing the end of its lifetime by now.
Soon, new genres were invented: ASCII's Chaos Angels, a role-playing-based eroge, inspired Dragon Knight by Elf and Rance by Alice Soft.
