    Re: Have you ever played a Visual Novel?

    I don't think it's much of a stretch to say that Hakuouki is the most popular visual novel game at the moment. It has two seasons of an anime adaptation under its belt as well as a manga series. The popularity might also attribute to the fact that Japanese fans already know the "characters" through historical figures; being familiar with the names and situations will make it easier to dive into the story.

    I've seen a few anime adaptions from Visual Novels. Including: Fate/, Clannad, Chaos;Head and recently Steins;Gate. As for playing any visual novels, I've started playing through Clannad and Steins;Gate.

    I forgot that Steins; Gate was based on a visual novel! The anime most likely took the safest route so it'll be interesting to see what other options there are for the ending.

    I know No R-18 but School Days should be fine, right. It's a famous one, afterall, I'm surprise no one ever mentioned it.

    I heard so too. A friend who played the visual novel told me that there were so many different kind of endings to the original plot as we made each choice. That is actually one of the best points of a visual novel. An anime based on such kind of story would be rather boring since we will have to stick to one kind of ending. In Steins;Gate specifically, something 'wilder' perhaps would be better. :P

    I haven't been playing visual novels for so long. Last time I played Katawa Shoujo, and I haven't tried new ones at all. Too time consuming, unfortunately.

    I agree. A lot of gamers don't seem to take visual novels seriously, but this type of game involves a lot of careful planning: one seemingly insignificant action can drastically alter the outcome of the game. What's special about Steins; Gate is that you watch the anime, become interested in the game it was based on and find out just how difficult it is to make everything work "right".

    Re: Have you ever played a Visual Novel?

    I didn't know this thread exist

    Before I went to college, I used to play a lot of VNs, Little Busters, Fate/SN, Clannad and others. I think what makes me interested in VN was because it is such a unique concept, I really like how the story may have several alternatives ending and there are a lot of surprises ahead if you don't make your plan meticulously. Unfortunately the last time I played a VN was 3 years ago due to RL business (and it's just time consuming, like phio said), I might play Steins;Gate and Robotics;Note just to find out the alternative outcomes.
