  1. Most enjoyable VN's read this year?

    Subahibi. I can't believe it lived up to the hype and then some.
  2. Muv-Luv Altered Fable Translation

    Degica bought the scripts for ML/MLA from Ixrec, but they were... uh... unusable, so both games had to be translated from scratch.
  3. RPG/Strategy VN

    Galaxy Angel 1-3 are RTS (so technically strategy...) and the story is fun enough in all three of them, although pretty light hearted. Also, no porn.
  4. [curiosity] Errors in VNs

    Not CG related, but Flowers has plenty of mistakes. They get practically everything about catholicism wrong (which covers from background information to the answer to a question in one of the detective sections) which is kinda funny when the whole VN takes place in a catholic high-school. Still a good VN though.
  5. What are you playing?

    So, I'm also playing Dies Irae (except that I'm about to start the final route) and while it does get better, the shounen crap never goes away. Nor does the remedial high-school level philosobabble, sadly.
  6. Fantasy RPG with good story

    Planescape: Torment has so much text it may as well be a VN...
  7. Why am I here?

    lolwut? There's like 20 VNs starring John Cena. Just use photoshop and make all your characters John Cena. Problem solved!
  8. What do you seek from VNs?

    Weird-ass stories that I can't get in any other media.
  9. Play some of the shorter ones, like Saya no Uta, Kikokugai, Hanachirasu or Eden.
  10. New to VN's

    Saya no Uta will give you warm and fuzzy feelings. If you don't mind gameplay, 999 is a pretty good, newbie-friendly mindfuck (though it is kind-of Sci Fi.) Ever 17 is the original version, and while in my opinion is better, it also has some serious pacing issues. And Symphonic Rain's pretty good, too (dem feels)
  11. JRPG: Nier Automata

    Ending E could be considered a happy ending, or at least an ending that leaves open the possibility of a happy ending, given the themes running through the game.
  12. Ever 17

    Yes, ZTD is trash, but Remember 11 is such a huge mindfuck, totally worth playing.
  13. Mass Effect Andromeda - Ready for judgment (TuT)

    Yup, writing's totally fine
  14. What is the appeal of visual novels?

    It's simple, to read stories that I couldn't normally read in other mediums (say, books or comics) because they're either 1) way, waaaay out there (MYTH, Saya no Uta or Euphoria, for example) or 2) because they use storytelling devices that are not available in other media (Ever 17, 999 and Remember 11 are the first examples that come to mind.) Basically I read VNs for mindfucks and weird shit, and VNs are pretty good at it.
