Not really a fan of RGPM. I have no idea when AVN needs to presented in RGPM style. Click xn just to get some scenes.

But since i havent been playing AVN for long, why was it even one of the mainstream format in the first place?

It still is a popular engine bacause it requires basically no skills at all to start (which is not a bad thing), but there is SO MANY crap games, that its not even worth for a starter to try this engine, also most of the games requires Two hands to play, in a >>PORN<< game this is so stupid.

Exploration, probably. It gives you the ability to implement an overworld with multiple locations to enter and investigate, which a straightforward VN, or even a Ren'Py sandbox game, wouldn't allow you. You can check behind trees, go into buildings and get instantly murked because your level's too low, find interesting ways to boost stats, suffer humiliating defeats and cathartic victories in combat, all things more difficult to do in other formats, which usually takes a good deal more effort, knowhow and time to code in other engines.

It being easier means there's more trash, sure, but it also means that when someone does it well (like with Claire's Quest) it rises far above similar efforts in other formats and engines.

The absolute worst is when you find an RPGM with super juicy screenshots only to find that the screenshots only represent 0.001% of the content, and the rest is a super grindy and boring poorly made NES wannabe. So much disappointment and flaccidness...

It's a good engine to make JRPG games for any beginner, but face the facts it's terrible for porn games.

Always was and I remember the very first few games made over 25 years ago.

I think RPGM is superior if the dev is trying to have gameplay elements beyond dialog choices in their porn game, but it's super rare to see it justified. I think Peasant's Quest is about as good as you can hope for from a porn JRPG, but like an actual JRPG it can be pretty slow to start.

And NLT's games, Lust Epidemic, Treasure of Nadia, and The Genesis Order, use it well for adventure game stuff.

I'm not sure to be honest. Maybe RPGM is easier to use? Or maybe some game devs have prior experience with it and want to use it for adult games? Either way, i'm not a game dev myself so i dunno.
