Well, I finished all the routes of Sharin, and Man, I thought my Harem ending would this orgy/ero scene....
What's this disappointing picture thing I get...
Like, I am pretty disappointed
hm I am not a VN expert but I played soem of them (though I have to admit all of them were H-Games ^^'' Yeah I'm a little pervert inside)
From what you mentioned here and there I played:
Kara no Shoujo: without help I only get to the bad endings here -.-' I emntioned I'm not the expert VN player?
Monster quest: only game where I TRY to loose in monster fights xD
Sengoku Rance Omg such an awesome game I was rliterally addicted to it for several months and still have it installed on my external hard drive^^ Also the 2nd Rance game got a HD remake (has now graphics of Sengoku Rance) , maybe it's wortt taking a look^^ though it's more like a RPG than anythingelse (and has really few H-scenes compared to sengoku rance )
soemother I played that I didn't find you mentioning:
Chain: That was pretty cool, story-wise and it has animated H-scenes^^
Bible Black: Really great graphic and a lot of choices to do here, though could be a bit... disturbing at times...
Discipline: Same graphics as Bible Black and also a lot of choices (and also a lot of H-scenes)
Secretes Wives Club: Oh well what should I say, the whole story resolves around havign sex... I'm a pevert xD
Koihime Musou: Has some strategy battles in it (which you can skip in 2nd+ playthrough), so the story was not that interesting, at least to me. Thoug hagain a lot of unlockable scenes, where yo uneed several playthroughs to see them all
My very first VN was Snow Drop (or something like that, does there ring a bell?). It was quite nice and simple. lovey-dovey story with a few H-scenes^^
Nice to you to have joined us, but Srsly, I use walkthroughs for each of my games, even the freaking Hanabira ones >_>
I do have one question though, I've been trying to find Discipline's translated version of the first set
I mean Discpline LS, because that's the prequel right? D:
but I from what I can tell, there hasn't been a translation done for it.
Unless you can read Japanese D:
And its a good thing to know that there are tons of people who are enjoying this Monster Quest Eroge/Rape Fest......Cause now I'm feeling less and less guilty everyday playing it.
Its still extremely hard to reccomend to people though >_>
/stuck with repeatedly showing that picture of the Vampire loli.
I've gone over this, but whether I like an ending or not is just a matter of personal taste.
If I had to rank them, my least favorite kind of ending would be the No Ending. More specifically, the kind that purpousely leaves you hanging with tons of loose threads and absolutely no intention to make a sequel, specially the ones intended to promote a different medium ("read the book!").
After that there's the Bad Ending, which I don't hate, but I don't like either. Maybe some people enjoy feeling sad (don't ask me how that works), but I want SOME amount of satisfaction after going through such a long story.
Then there's the Good Ending, which is kind of tricky. I'm usually fine with those when there was never really much of a doubt the good guys are gonna win, so it's more about the build up and the grand finale rather than the actual outcome. I also like the ones where the protagonist was just that got damn clever, to the point that even I have to admit he deserves to win. Usually never happens, because most Good Endings are just so convenient that they feel like a cop out to me.
Finally there's my personal favorite, the Bitter Sweet ending. The protagonist puts in everything he's got, makes sacrifice after sacrifice, gives up on everything he holds dear, maybe even his life, but got dammit, he saves the girl. It's kind of like a good ending where you can clearly tell just how much he earned it. My favortie kind is the one where the story actually manages to convince you that all your efforts weren't in vain-- that even if things looks bleak, it's somehow gonna be ok.
If you really wanna know why I didn't like Muv Luv's ending,
Oh and it's not that I'm a fan of how SHAFT works, but it's more about how they keep picking series that I like. Mostly lots and lots of dialogue and witty banter.
And no, I'm not gonna tell you Spam. I'm afraid you'll have to run into it yourself. It's in my top 15, that's all I'm gonna say.
You didn't love Gonzou, Sana? He was such a boss though. He was legitimately amazing. Spamamadorf's rant on him is pretty good but even that doesn't do justice to his character. He was basically the Houzuki of G Senjou no Maou.
I don't love him, maybe a bit more then average,,,,,slightly like? D:
I had like zilch feelings for Gonzou till the last arc. I don't know
But you can also blame Houzuki a bit for this
because the fact that I have this problem where I compare characters and if I like one less, I tend to like them even less.
What do you mean I have to run into it myself? XD I already played the entire thing (well except Shiratori's route but I really don't care all that much about her) so I've run into it I just don't know what it is
Wish I could say anything other than hi to you Raiden but I haven't really played any of those games myself XD
Thanks for the rant, it was an interesting read.
A Comment towards the beginning of your rant, I feel that what makes VNs different from most mediums is the not as exciting beginning parts.
Cause then, you sort of have to "force" yourself to continue reading by finding something to attach to either the characters or the comedy or whatever.
But because you work yourself to it, whenever you get your epic endings, the enjoyment you get is enhanced
because you realize, so it really was worth it.
And all that time you spent that felt a bit wasty wasn't really.
I mean, VNs could skip the slow beginnings but then everything would be a lot less........impactful .-.
I remember Athos commenting it on Fate/Stay Night and something else, but I think it applies to pretty much all my favorite VNs
Well, I'm pretty sure you all agree with me since you guys always hint it while posting
So this is more of my own personal realization of what makes VNs sometimes more enjoyable then movies/books.
Besides the fact that books never have epic BGM >_>
Haru was hilarious, I loved her jokes.
I also loved her character design and her hair too though >_>
Does Katawa Shojo count as one? Cause I've played that. 3:
I always think either this or Saya no Uta is the best VN to start with.
This because, no one ever seems to hate it
If I had to explain, I really can't....cause I don't know why either.
Maybe because it doesn't do anything badly?
Saya no Uta because its short and its decent enough to love.
Katawa Shoujo was also the first VN I played. I think.
But I really can't say that this VN was the one that got me into playing them
Cause I didn't care for VNs even after playing KS.
Muv Luv is definitely the one that got me playing, but probably VNDB was the thing that gave me the spark to start.
That Huge Database, just looked so attractive ;W;
