Visual Novels. Do you play them? And if you have what have you played and what were your reactions to them?

Guess I'll start:

Ever17 - Good god. I cried manly tears during Tsugumi's path and shit bricks on Coco's path. Probably one of the only things to come out of Jappoland that ends happily.

Tsukihime - Akiha: Manly Tears, Ciel: Tears of joy, Kohaku: Not quite as happy as it seems, Hisui: ;_;, Arcueid: ;____;, Sacchin: WHURS MAH SATSUKI ROUTE.

Kana Imouto - God damn, just how many times am I going to cry to a visual novel. Oh Kana, I wish I had a little sister like you ;__;

Fate/Stay Night - Fate Route: Oh dear, now that I look upon my experiences I feel like a complete fag. I almost never cry to animu, but when it comes to Visual Novels I bawl like a fucking baby.

Bible Black - fappo

In terms of Visual Novels i'd really like to play, I'd say Higurashi No Naku Koro ni and Saya no Uta are pretty high up there, along with Kanon and AIR. I get so attached and engrossed when I get started on a Visual Novel. It sucks when it ends, especially when it's a depressing, sad ending. I remember playing Ever17 the first time and getting the Tsugumi bad end. The feeling of disappointment is still scarred in my mind.

Guess lots of people choose the term Visual Novel over Eroge/H-games (Although, sure, some Visual Novels contain no H at all). Uh, and these are okay, I think, as long as we don't talk about THAT.

Speaking about Ever17... kenji, where's the game?

Kanon (well, with Haeleth's patch). The first one to actually change my minds about Eroge.

AIR (with Misuzu's Dream arc patch). 2nd from Key/Visual Art's

Planetarian. Well this is what they call "real" visual novel... and the ending was...

Tsukihime. Arc's, Ciel's, Akiha's both route has been completed. Currently stopped in Hisui's route because...
OH, AND NO STORY ARC FOR SACCHIN. damn.

Wind ~A breath of Heart~. Well, well well well well. I just really has no time to play recently, even though I really wanted to.

Fate/Stay Night. Well, I'm just about to play it ^^;

And some common english bishoujo games already out. Notable ones are Kana ~Imouto~, Crescendo (didn't play all routes though), Heart de Roommate, Yin-Yang X-change Alternative.

totally agree with this statement. the best novel game i ever played. should be an anime but might be too difficult to make.

Yeah, if they ever made it into an anime it couldn't be one straight continuous timeline. It'd have to be done in arcs, maybe something like Higurashi.

I hope Mirrormoon doesn't take forever to translate the UBW route. I WANT MAH TOHSAKA ROUTE.

making a anime adaptation would be good but it wouldn't be as epic as it was in the game even if they did it in the Higurashi style


Ever17 . . . as you can see from my sig i really like this VN . . . . i cried and many bricks was shat in Coco's path . . . . if you can get your hands on this game i seriously recommend you to get it im almost 100% sure you wont regret it (if you play the whole thing through)

Tsukihime . . . .

IPB Image

^^ . . . . . T-T

Kana . . . . have to finish

Saya no Uta - got it . . . . looks epic but haven't played it yet

Higurashi - got it need to finish (too busy with Daybreak Kai)

Fate/stay night . . . . in the middle of the fate path . . . so much more epic than the anime counterpart its not even funny. TAIGAAAAAAA!!!!!

I've only read/played these:

Fate/Stay Night. Only Fate route at the moment since no VA's = One pwned Takeshi

Tsukihime. Akiha & Kohaku routes are great I think I haven't read anything that good in a long while.

and some eroges that are so much more focused on sex than they are on story
EDIT: Been trying to find Ever17 for awhile anyone know where I can order it?

Tokimemo? I played the 2nd series...well it was a pain searching for a Japanese PS game here (and internet connection wasn't as fast as now)

Well, most favorite is Yae Kaori's storyline >.<

@kenji : You LIKE the ending, right? PLANETARIAN, that is.
And CLANNAD is also a non-H game (fortunately) >.<

I must say, Tsugumi needed some H-scenes. If it was only Tsugumi H-scenes I'd be a happy man :3 Instead the closest I get to an H-scene are the system voices. Meh, at least I can pretend it's voice overs to an H-scene. ;__;

Yume Miru Kusuri . . . . for some reason this game made me lol . . . well i only finished a path Mizuki's one and it seems like her path is the most normal out of the 3 . . . . and your coworker who loves eroges and is gay . . . . i love that guy . . . way better than itsuki ^^ well to sum it up this game is a mind trip. and drunk Mizuki is win ^^

and one more thing . . . lol@america

@mikuru: i liked the ending but you kinda know its gonna happen . . . even tho u know it you cant help but to cry when it actually happens  (to the music ^^) oh yeah and i forgot about clannad

@GoDShOt: honestly that would spoil it if you know what i mean and seriously lower my ranking of this game . . . but . . . that would be nice still

Started playing Wind ~A Breath of Heart~. Expectedly, more understandable than the anime, and even has some nice emotional situation. A kind of Visual Novel where you couldn't just hate one of the characters smile.gif.

And, quite slow pace due to auto mode... I'd like to relax and enjoy this one.
