Bishoujo Games in English?

After watching Oreimo and Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, I'm kinda curious about these anime dating sim games the characters were playing.

Has anyone played these? Are there any worth checking out?

Are there any released in English on the PS3 or 360? Or maybe an iPad version? Preferably one that's not full of porn.

Thanks.

A free one was just released. And produced in English no less:

http://katawa-shoujo.com/

Haven't played it, but word is that it's not any more "full of" porn than a racy Hollywood movie.

BTW, is Oreimo an excellent show or what.

Thanks for the info, I'll check it out. I don't have too much interest in playing these types of games. But having seem them on a couple shows, I'd like to know more and maybe give one a try.

Oreimo and YuruYuri are probably my two favorite shows I watched in 2011. Too bad the DVD set went OOP so quickly. I would have bought it. I'd love to see Oreimo come back for a 2nd season.

I don't have anything to recommend, but have you checked http://www.jastusa.com/ and http://www.mangagamer.com/. There are all age version games from both sites.

I just went through a really great one:

About as well-written as Planescape: Torment (which is to say it's sublime). And best of all, short. And free.
