Well VNs aren't for everyone... no worries if you can't enjoy VNs, find something else that you like more.

The beautiful artwork, voice and music means everything to me, I'd never read a book without those.

 

For me, Anime ≥ VN >> Manga >> any other forms of entertainment.

True. Like Dark Souls 2, for example. Such enjoyment, much death, wow.

Not for me.... the only other type of game I play are rhythm games because

 

FPS -> keeps dying in single-player, gets ****ed in multi-player

RPG -> never ending loop of running around, talking, killing monsters

OORRRRRRrrr, one could play Agarest: Generations of War.
It's an RPG, eroge aspects (more positive = better teammates!).

Just kidding, I'm only going to buy it for the wallpapers on Steam. They cost $16-$40 each.

Perhaps. XD
I can only stare at the same chairs for so long. I mean, they show it for like 60% of the time I spent playing the darn thing. Such excite.


Key's characters always scare me.

^ that's a cool new alien species


The background is nice on the other hand. Might as well play Tales of Symphonia though. Action + story + character dialogue >>>>>>> staring at chairs while reading text and looping music. At least the "never ending loop of running around, talking, killing monsters" is dynamic and different each time while devising strategies to defeat enemies....or you can go back to staring at chairs while pressing a button.

Also, don't watch JoJo episode 7 on the public bus. Just WTF.

Maybe that had to do with the fact you only got 30 minutes of sleep? :tongue:

Watching anime/movies/TV and listening to music are even less interactive, just keep that in mind. :D

Usually Key characters aren't thaaaaat bad. They're more subdued like this (IMO)

I agree that picture is creepy, and it looks nothing like Kotori.

 

I'd personally recommend you try Planetarian personally, It took me ~5 hours to beat (so not that much lost time if you don't like it, compared to other VNs) and it's legally available on the iOS app store in English. It also has an awesome soundtrack (IMO) and the backgrounds to change a lot (though more near the end... I won't spoil anything though.)

Holy crap my receiver had some bad bass rolloff going on! The Emotiva a-100 just grabs the bass of my speakers by the balls and throws some serious punch! :eek:

Even school days was boring for me, and it's one of the more animated and less interactive ones. It's just too much effort remembering all the choices.
