Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die
Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will
probably never one day have.

Before going to my question, I would like to say: "I'm back b*tches!!!". Anyway... While I was "replaying" my visual novel (VN) collections, I notice that there are songs that are "stale" and there are others who give me a lot of goosebumps particularly key's VNs like Clannad and Little Busters. I know people will start to argue that key's song is not that great, but this is my personal preference so BURNNN you haters!!!!! Just kidding, I'll respect your preference, but in return also respect mine too... XD Going to the main question after me beating around the bush... What makes an opening song/soundtrack great? What are their construction (rhythm, melody, instruments, vocals, and other musical elements)? What are do's and don't's in constructing a soundtrack? How are they able to successfully trigger our emotions in psychological way? Additional notes: I prefer your answers in relation to moege. But I'm also welcome on other VN genre. Reason for posting this question: 1. To satisfy my curiosity. 2. For educational purpose (maybe some people want to make a VN and get some of the ideas in this discussion for marketing strategy) 3. For pure pleisure (pleasure + leisure). 4. In order to control the ninjas cutting onions in the future. XD
I've been pondering on this questing for a couple of days. Which was the first VN to be released with an opening movie? And as a bonus question which do you think was most "revolutionary" for its time? I've dug up some pre millennium ones (very incomplete list). 1996 Jan 26 Shizuku PC98 (Kizuato op included in video) 1997 May 23 To Heart PC http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm22863985 (Sorry no youtube found of original PC OP) 1998 May 1 White Album PC June 26 One kagayaku kisetsu he PC 1999 June 4 Kanon PC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSHrwX3Ug1k June 25 Kana imouto PC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Khet3t60k_o I leave no guarantees I'm 100% correct on everything.
