Visual Novels about debating

Recommended Posts

KoiChoco, I guess? Although the politics are only really significant in a couple of the routes. Also (I haven't read it) I assume My Girlfriend is the President has some sort of debating in it.

Oh, do courtroom cases count as debates? If so, Phoenix Wright is good too.

Yeah it had that one debate scene debating their love for the protagonist and other current affairs matters although it wasn't actually a serious one.

The RPG mechanics are actually a visualization of debate battles, and during their attacks they shout out lines like "Your logic is flawed!"

Sounds interesting. I'll give this one a try.

swan song, there are many debates, there is specially good one where they are talking about if killing a person is ok or not.

Odd, looking for a visual novel about debating. Normally we'd be debating about visual novels.

Easiest way for me to learn about debating since my school is making me part of a debate team and I know nothing about it

debates can be good and interesting or really bad and boring it all depends on the subject they are debating and if you like that subject in particular...for example koichoko debates are crap for me because they are all about the management of the school which is really boring (again for me)

Well, debate as a 'sport' involves being assigned a 'position' on an 'issue' as a team and being required to defend it with both logical and emotional arguments, convincing the judges and/or audience of their position's correctness.  In the case of 'sport' debates, you aren't given an option of which position to take, so you might find yourself defending a position you yourself don't believe in.  The primary skill of a debater in this case is being able to consider the benefits of all sides, figure out in advance what arguments the other side is likely to use, and basically dismantle their logic while pressing yours. 

Incidentally, it can be said that most political debates are actually closer to this, as politicians are required by their desire to get elected to frequently take positions they might find personally objectionable.

Well in Greece when they were teaching rhetoric they often made you defend something (a random subject was assigned to you) and then contra-argument what you said, the goal was to convince the ones who were testing you and see if you were able to convince them both way. 

Sadly or luckily depending the way you see it I had to study it for school since rhetoric is a big part of being a lawyer :P (not in the same way as in USA for example since there are no trials with juries here)

Again I find the process really interesting but it all comes down to the subject itself that is being debated.

Tags you might be interested in on vndb if you love debates:

Courtroom

Battle of Wits

Oh even though it's also Japanese, I had tons of laughs at this because of the parody and fourth wall breaking.
