I agree with Clephas,i enjoyed it in the begining but after they started going in other games it became annoying. Asuna became more or less a useless character then they did that stupid drama with his sister
The new one i havent watched past episode 2 yet,felt like they were pointlessly dragging out everything
Today anime is distributed mostly by torrents and other distributed ways. It perhaps worked back when people downloaded things through direct connect. But thanks to pirate-hunters the downloads have left those fields.
The torrents will be intact, and new indexing sites will pop up, it's like gardening in a forest. And they'll probably focus on the most mainstream material, which pops up faster.
And personally I don't see VN/eroge targeted at all.
This list won't feature the VNs in order of "how good they are". Rating them would be way too much of a clusterfuck to me.
The VNs are not in their respective order. Meaning number 1 is not the best, and so on.
3_G-Senjou no Maou
This Visual Novel is the easiest visual novel translated to get a bad ending without using a walkthrough- which just adds to the fun of it. It makes a massive amount of references to common literature, which makes it even better.
It may seem like an ordinary moege- the atmosphere is light, the story is full of cuteness, which you can note by the character design and soundtrack. It gets really good in the middle, and you'll be dying to know what happens in the end. A game with multiple perspectives, it's definitely one of the most enjoyable Visual Novels I've ever read.
"You shouldn't tell lies that you can't even fool yourself with"
A post apocalyptic Visual Novel.
It may seem like your ordinary moege. Trust me, it's not.
12_Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo (and sequel)
13_Sekien no Inganock
Steampunk. An atmosphere full of mysteries and references that will make your head blow up.
A visual novel that deals extensively with time travel and it's consequences.
16_Fault: Milestone (1 & 2)
17_Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
18_Kara no Shoujo
19_Umineko no Naku Koro ni
Another top 10.
It lacks in the ending, but otherwise the story of this VN has enough to easily become one of my all-time favorites.
"Could it possibly be rewritten, this fate of hers?"
Another one that enters the top 10.
26_Grisaia no Kajitsu
27_Saya no Uta
Only if you enjoy dark and messed up settings.
28_Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni
29_Eien no Aselia
30_Rose Guns Days (1 & 2)
There are small sections of gameplay on this one, but you can skip them by pressing the space bar, so this still qualifies.
I feel obliged to comment on this VN before suggesting it to anyone. It's an Alicesoft title, which speaks a lot for itself... If you don't know how it's going to be like, well.. Kind of tough to describe. Lots of sex, including comedy rape. Alicesoft tends to make the whole story a comedy until right near the end, where things actually do get serious. It's worth checking out, if you don't mind Rance's personality.
Want a short VN that can captivate you for their whole duration? Here is it.
Visual novel adapted from the youth horror novel written by Hajime Ninomae and illustrated by yoshitoshi ABe.
33_Ef- A Fairy Tale of the Two
Another one great for those who want short Visual Novels.
Another Alicesoft title. While Rouga is not near Rance's level when it comes to pissing off people, alicesoft's style is something which often doesn't please people.
36_Yume Miru Kusuri
The endings pack quite a punch.
37_Kikokugai- The Cyber Slayer
39_Hoshizora no Memoria
Yep, it's somewhat overrated. Still, the fact that it is substantially easier for those who are starting to play visual novels to read should not be discarded, and overall, the story was good.
41_World End Economica
43_Shikkoku no Sharnoth
Yep, there is a minigame on this one. If you download a save data you can skip the minigame, though. So it still qualifies. Another VN that enters my top 10.
44_Muv Luv Alternative
The first Muv Luv didn't have enough to enter this list. You should still read it, though~
MLA is definitely awesome.
I'd say Kirino. Oreimo has a psp version, so she's also a VN character.
I actually liked Takumi quite a lot- I don't feel like any protagonist has to be a badass or a blank slate- Takumi was weak physically and mentally but had his own personality- he scores way better than most MCs to me, since they're just H machines.
