The story is just beginning, for only I am in the VN loop

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals!

 

I'm 14 and I'm from Turkey. Well, I am currently reading my third ever visual novel, but the second one I read became my favorite "video game" of all time so my respect for this genre is already immense. 

Let's see a short history:

 

Everything started when I learned about 999:Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors- a DS visual novel in which 9 people have to escape a sinking ship while playing a twisted game called "Nonary Game"(you learn what it means in the game) where you have to solve puzzles, separate and find each other again, and feign death itself.

 

I had to play using an emulator(the game is unavailable in Europe, let alone Turkey) but it still left a huge impact on me. The characters, setting, story(gameplay, not so much)...

 

That game has a sequel called Virtue's Last Reward. It's out for 3DS and PS Vita, and it is A-MA-ZING: Another Nonary Game takes place a year later in a facility no one knows the purpose of. However, there is a huge twist: To escape, you must get through a number 9 door which opens only ONCE- and to get it to open, you have to trust these strangers with your life-or betray them. It has incredible puzzles, flawless story, great graphics and incredible voice acting. Near the end, I realized I was laughing hysterically because the plot twists were so good. My favorite game. Ever.

 

 

Once I finished that, I researched for the author's other works and I stumbled upon the Infinity series. The most popular and interesting one was Ever17-the story of how 6 strangers got stranded in an underwater theme park deemed to implode in 120 hours. I checked out the others too(Never7 and Remember11) but I decided to read Ever17 first and that is what I am doing right now.

 

---mini edit- --

I also watched Danganronpa's anime if that counts, couldn't manage to get an emulator working and I don't have PSP or a Vita and I won't for a long time.

---mini edit over---

 

Nice to meet you all, and may we have many nice days together!

 

***HUGE EDIT***

 

I figured that I could tell more about myself... So here it goes:

 

I love love love rock and metal music- anything and(nearly) everything between Rainbow and Metallica is loved by me.

I have a passion of reading fiction books-mostly teenage fiction(though not much related to romance).

My biggest passion of all: Video games. The best way to have fun in my opinion. My favorite genres: Story-driven FPS&FPSRPG's(Portal, Bioshock, Half-Life, System Shock 2 etc.) and Visual Novels (Zero Escape, Danganronpa), Platformers& Sidescrollers, Indie(Binding Of Isaac, Terraria... etc.) I like Nintendo, though besides my laptop I only have a 3DS and an original DS, I would love to have a Vita.

 

 

Otherwise, not much that I dwell in- starting guitar lessons tomorrow though, so I got that going for me, which is nice. Oh, and I love Nutella.

First question : Are you really 14 ? Damn it my cousin is 14 too but there's no way she could write english like that. Impressive ._.

 

Okay real question, are the VN's you talked about the only ones you have read ?

I'd strongly recommend you to play Clannad.

First answer: Yes I am, I guess I just have it good with english. Thanks! ^^

 

Okay really answer: Yes, after Ever17 I will read Never7 and Remember11. Afterwards, I'll check Clannad, thanks! :)

 

P.S: 

***VLR's Luna end and Ever17's Sora end***

Cry a lot

 

P.P.S: I nearly wrote Dora instead of Sora ._.
