@Dice: I just bought Ar Tonelico x.x
Did I just buy an H game or something? I let my little sister read the manual! D:
Ar Tonelico is known for having some rather strong innuendo. Nothing major honestly except for one little scene. Just make sure no one else is around if you chose to follow Aurica about a third of the way through the game. That's all I'm saying. XD
About the only thing I've seen on the stateside JRPG market that comes close to H-game levels is Record of Agarest War.
Plus Dice is putting the wrong spin on it. If somewhere were to ask me what you do in Ar Tonelico:
"You play as a stereotypical male JRPG lead going through a relatively generic but interesting plot with the main spin on the battle system being your Reyvateil partner. A Reyvateil is practically a bio-android life-form that is always generated in the form of a human female and creates magic by singing in a special language and generates the bulk of her power from her psychological bond with her partner. Said bond is strengthened by accessing your partner's psyche and "diving" into her repressed persona aspects and gaining her acceptance by exposing yourself to her true, unrestricted emotions.
Also, be warned this process is presented in a manner parallel to copulation and entails all the typical "sex jokes" one might encounter in Junior High. In addition Reyvateils are sometimes treated with a degree of sexism/racism (as it's not so much that they're "female" as they are "Reyvateil"). Therefore extremely sensitive individuals might not care to play this game because they will become offended over something that really isn't that big of a deal but someone looking for a fight can nitpick at it easily."
Also to sort of respond to Dice: I would totally admit to playing Ar Tonelico before admitting to playing something like GTA or Halo. (The first for the fact of what you do/can do in game; the other for the huge negative perception the fanbase generates. Not that I have interest in either but they're popular enough to make good examples.)
