Alright, this sounds kind of cool. :sachi: My five picks as of right now:


1. Grisaia no Kajitsu

2. Kono oozora ni tsubasa o hirogete

3. Maji de watashi ni koi shinasai (Guys, is it written "koishinasai" or koi shinasai?" Both seem to be used quite commonly.)

4. Planetarian

5. Eden*

I'll postpone my vote until I have read every single visual novel in existence. Watch this space.

Change the title to the best translated ones and it might work... most people here have only limited knowledge of the untranslated (mostly stuff a few veterans and I introduced).

Personal preferences set aside...

Translated: Grisaia no Kajitsu  To be honest, if I were to go with my hungers, I probably would have gone for Ayakashibito or FSN... but Grisaia is easily the best - speaking as objectively as possible - that I've seen. 

Untranslated: This is a lot harder... because I've played so many. Personally, I'd love to recommend Evolimit as the best of all time, but if I were to try to be objective, it would be Dies Irae, Soukou Akki Muramasa, Ikusa Megami Zero, or Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no (not really possible to narrow it any further, as they are all masterworks in their individual styles and areas).

i have read nowhere near enough to make a decent top 5, so feel free to do with it whatever you like

1. planetarian (surprise, isn't it)

2. saya no uta

3. clannad

4. narcissu 1st

5. that was all the great (9+) ones, so i'll have to say imouto paradise because it's just great porn


good luck with that list though, nice idea

Choosing 5 is quite a lot considering I haven't read that many VNs yet, but here's my personal top:

1. Rewrite

2. Umineko no Naku Koro ni (even though I haven't finished Chiru yet, I've seen enough to put it here)

3. ef -a fairy tale of the two-

4. 9 hours, 9 persons, 9 doors

5. Little Busters!
