Ugh...how does one play a VN for fun? I tried playing Narcissu and I fell asleep. All you do is read text, push the enter key, and listen to the same looping music. Occasionally I have to press the up or down arrow key. If I wanted to do that, I'd just read a book while listening to some brown noise while tapping on a keyboard key. >.>
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.
