Embarassing moments with vns...

Recommended Posts

So today I was playing Sharin no kuni Yuukyuu no Shounenshoujo again, I normally don't play vns in front of any family member or I try to do it while nobody is in the house, well this time I didn't... I don't know why, maybe it was because i thought that this novel didn't have any sex scene or at least I didn't remember having any(I remember having a minor bath scene but no sex or anything)...huge mistake, just when the eroge scene started my dad entered in my room...my god what a shitty situation, I started hitting the damn control key but the damn scene didn't want to end, it went on and on with my father right beside me not knowing what to say or do, same with me, I was sweating like crazy.

So after a few minutes that felt like hours he started talking to me like if nothing was going on and then he left...

 

:unsure:

 

Have any of you had a similar situation?

I was playing Katawa Shoujo about one week after breaking up with my girlfriend. So I was at Emi's route - my favourite route in my favourite VN - and I was crying like a child in a specific and very sad scene (spoilers below). So my mother bursts into the room, sees me sobbing and says "I know you've had a breakup recently, but Jesus get a grip already".

 

I opened my mouth to protest and say that I was actually crying because a girl with no legs who doesn't even actually exist was giving me a piece of her mind, but for some reason it didn't seem like the most sensible thing to say. To this day she still thinks I had the worst breakup ever.

 

"You won't fix the phantom limb pain, Hisao. No one will."

Oh my god, that's horrible - I feel bad just imagining that. :D

 

For me, the only similar thing that happened was with my roommate, I guess. We were reading AXANAEL together, and for some reason Nitro+ thought it'd be cool to stick a h-scene right in front of the OP. I felt a bit embarrassed at first but we just got a few laughs out of it in the end - both me and my roommate are studying Japanese, so we're 'deep' enough into the culture to both know what to expect - can't imagine reading a VN with anyone else though.

I've got two. Once, I got on a plane and foolishly only brought 2 forms of entertainment for the whole trip: G-senjou and Kiss x Sis. Not knowing, I started kiss x sis in the airport but quickly realized how lewd it was and put that down. Then I continued playing g-senjou. When I got on the plane, for the first time in my life I did not sit next to an oversized american. It was a cute girl a few years older than me. But I didn't feel like talking to her and making a single serving friend, so I played my porn game. I avoided instant death by sensing an impending H scene with a heroine and turning the game off, but then I had to endure the remaining 6 hours of nothing.

 

Second, probably more embarrassing for the recipient. My friend called me on Skype while I was QCing an H-scene that I was almost done, and I didn't have headphones on. He had to bear with such lines as AH NN JMELKMGH EUMA IUKUUUUUUUU~~~~~~~uUUU~~UU`uUU`U for a few minutes before asking me for a link.

Two days ago, I was playing Muv-Luv on my laptop in the living room while my family was watching 20/20. My sister was sitting next to me, and I was kind of paying more attention to the show rather then the game. Apparently I kept on clicking without even looking at my screen. I look back at my computer, and to my horror. I see 

Sumika, naked, on a bed, her breasts, being grabbed on by Takeru.

:michiru:

 

Luckily, she didn't seem to notice, so I immediately closed my laptop.

Hmm, well there was one time where I was playing an older nukige (pretty sure it was X-Change) in my room. Being an older game, It defaulted to full screen, meaning that it was harder to just minimizing it. So when my mom came in to talk to me about something, I panicked and, forgetting that I could have just hit the escape key, slammed my laptop shut. Mom then spent about 5 minutes telling me to open it back up because she thought I was hiding something, and she didn't go away until I at least showed her my lock screen. I got away with it, but since then, I've stopped playing anything too hardcore when she's home.

Accidentally switched from my Mac screen to my Parallels screen during one of Amane's h-scenes, and that was when my sister was sitting at the table, which is less then 5 feet away from the computer, and the computer also directly faces the table.  I switched back in under a second, but to this day I still have no idea if she saw it or not.  This was back before I had my own computer in my own room, so...playing VNs with h-scenes in the living/dining room is terrible.  That was the day I stopped playing VNs on Parallels  xD

 

Edit for context: She came home early and scared the bajeezus out of me, so I quickly switched screens so she wouldn't see it.  I was waiting for her to leave the room so I could quit, but that didn't happen.

, just when the eroge scene started my dad entered in my room...my god what a shitty situation, I started hitting the damn control key but the damn scene didn't want to end, it went on and on with my father right beside me not knowing what to say or do, same with me, I was sweating like crazy.

 

This is why more games need to have the abort feature. Eroge! had that. You just hit esc and game immediately "closes". When you think that it's safe again, you just go to your toolbar, click on the Eroge! logo, and continue exactly where you left off. A very helpful feature.

I'm normally very careful when playing VNs but there was this one time at bandcamp- oh. Nevermind. :P

Anyway, back when I was a teen (like a couple of centuries ago) I left my PC on and went off elsewhere.

After like 1 hour I returned only to find my sister playing "True Love" (The dating sim) which I left paused.

I quickly removed her from the premises and told her she shouldn't play this stuff as it wasn't for girls.

She would still sneak in and play whenever I wasn't around and even got to finish it. the H-scenes didn't faze her.  :michiru:

Not really embarassing but more like close calls. There were two instances when my mom came down (my PC is in the basement) during an H-scene so I quickly closed the volume, turn off my monitor and pretend to be doing something while she's down there.

 

This one is recent but after I finished an H-scene, my dad came down. Thank god I finished it or else I would have had to pull a quick one again

You people really need to learn about alt+tab or alt+f4 or something. Ain't no reason to act so flustered turning off monitors or whatever. It's super easy to instantly minimize or close the program you're in. 

 

Well, I used to have to dodge my parents when looking at porn or whatever when I still lived with them, and didn't have my own computer yet, but I managed to avoid any close calls. Certainly nothing with eroge. I enjoy total privacy nowadays. :)

I'd say the most embaressing experience I've had involved answering my phone when I thought my tv was on mute (during a hscene, conviently - and also on auto-forward); but instead i seemed to have spiked the volume to max... :S I reacted quickly, but the damage was still done.

 

Was kinda an akward call after that lol.

Something like this hasn't happened to me in quite a while. When I was reading Dacapo 2 several years ago, when I reached Anzu's sex scene, right in the middle of it my mom walked into my room. My desk and computer are positioned in such a way where there is no way that people entering can see my screen. So I had time to exit. But I was too nervous to think properly. While I spoke calmly to her, inside my mind I was frantically trying to control the situation. She ended up not stepping further in my room, so even though I didn't exit the scene, I avoided all danger. :) Man, I almost forgot about that.

I've never had one in spite of recently moving back in with my parents. You have to open two doors to get to my room, so I always hear the first one opening and have time to react before the second one gets opened. I also tend to only skim/skip through H-scenes when I'm playing a VN during the day, so it doesn't come up a lot.

 

The closest thing to embarrassment I've come with this sort of thing is the number of times I've almost slipped into a long-winded explanation about VNs or one VN in particular before realizing that that would cause my parents to know the existence of such content and thus be on the lookout for it. 

 

 

So my mother bursts into the room, sees me sobbing and says "I know you've had a breakup recently, but Jesus get a grip already".

 

 

Jesus, after my first breakup my mother bought me a 50 hour RPG to keep my mind off of it until it wasn't so raw. A very, very different approach.

 

I also bawled my eyes out after playing Katawa Shoujo soon after a breakup. It was Hanako's route that killed me, really, especially when you consider the fact that I myself am a burn victim and could relate to what was going on so closely.

That's rough lol. I think that was the first VN I ever discovered - way back in the time of the early p2p sharing prog Napster.

 

(suddenly reminded just how old he is compared to back then, dies alittle inside) :wafuu:

My girlfriend and I play BL games together and once my dad walked in and looked over my shoulder during a really weird part of Enzai. He just said "Is that...?" and I told him exactly what it was and now he never asks what I'm doing anymore. It was more awkward and embarrassing for him than it was for me, to be honest.

Never had any moments like that. My mom was the type to obviously stare at my PC monitor whenever she entered my room and often try and strike up a conversation about whatever she saw. Too many times of having to explain what video/movie I was watching, what game I was playing, or having to convince her that she was looking at a window of itunes when it was actually a chatroom just so that she wouldn't pry into the conversations I having. I started making sure my monitor was pointed out of view from the entrance to my room before she would have had a chance to see VN nonsense.

Never had one, but I had one with conventional porn.

 

So what happens is there is this one porn video I apparently downloaded months ago and forgot all about it. Windows Media Player picked this up and now displays a big-ass thumbnail of porn in its menu.

 

I had no idea about this, of course. So when I decided to watch Hangover 2 with my (male) cousin in the living room, I was fine and dandy with connecting my effing laptop to the living room TV via HDMI. My mom and lil sister were in the room, and I decided to try opening the movie from windows media player.

 

Thankfully, my sister was busy on her laptop and my mom was checking something on her phone. My cousin and I spotted the thumbnail at the same moment, but for the several seconds it was up there, it was scary as HELL.

I've never really had a problem with any embarrassing moments. The way I have my setup, somebody would have to really to look at my computer when I am reading VNs. That and my parents knock on the door before coming in and wait for me to say it is okay to come in, so it works out nicely for me. 

 

Although, I do remember one time where I fell asleep while going through an h-scene and I left the light on. I woke up with my laptop closed and the lights off...

 

I still to this day don't know if my parents saw what was on my screen.  :vinty:
