I haven't seen any posts (or searched well enough) about visual novels, so might as well create one.

If you don't know what a visual novel is, here is a nice article that explains what they are.

https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VisualNovel

If you have played them, what are some of your favorites?

When I was a kid I did one of those Story book games where your choices effect the outcome. It wasn't visual, but visual novels are pretty much the same. Strangely as an adult I don't feel much motivation to play Visual Novel games anymore even though I have purchased one on sale one time.

Oh yeah of course.

Isn't that just a program to make visual novels?

As soon as I can spare some cash and an urge to play them, I might try giving the Ace Attorney series of games a try.

Apparently. :oops:

There's survival horror, adventure and RPG games built using it too.

I LOVEEEEE DANDELION WISHES!! !! !! !! !! !! ! You might like Magical Diary: Horse Hall. There's a character creation option, which I really like, and the diffrent guys are so cute. It's just a comfy VN.

I'll have to check out that youtuber!

Clannad!! !! !

I also have Ef: A Tale of Two, but have yet to play it. I watched both seasons of the anime.

Also Steins;gate. I have yet to play Steins;gate 0, but the first was great. (The anime adaption of the first I watched after playing the VN. The aime is a pretty faithful adaption.)

I have Clannad but I have yet to touch it. I know it'll be a journey to get through it. One day I'll make the time and get through it. Steins;gate is also on my wishlist. I really want to play The House in Fata Morgana too.

Clannad is beautiful, my top favorite VN fr fr :heart: You'll cry for sure, but you'll laugh a lot too.

Clannad Tomoyo After isn't as good imo, and the ending is utter bull. s**t. But if you really like that pairing it may be worth playing.

There are also extra side story DLC for Clannad that involves extra stories from each of the routes.

I haven't. I have a few VNs I want to play. A Sky Full of Stars (I think?) is on my wishlist

My absolute favorite VN is Umineko. Likely the greateat story I will ever read.
My second favorite is Chaos;Child, which I did not expect to go so hard, above and beyond its previous iteration which I also loved, Chaos;Head.
These are genuinely amazing VNs and I cannot recommend them enough. Both are available on Steam.

In the future, I will be playing the English-language version of the Tsukihime remake coming out this year on PS4 and Switch, and SubaHibi, a critically acclaimed denpa VN. I may also replay Chaos;Head in the form of Chaos;Head Noah.

My list of VNs I'd like to one day play is pretty large and I don't know if I'll ever get to all of them: Kamidori Alchemy Master, Sakura no Uta, Grisaia, Muv Luv, Utawarerumono, Phantom, Rewrite, Tsui no Sora remake, Lamento Beyond the Void and Dies Irae, Kara no Shoujo, Higurashi, White Album 2, Sakura Moyu, Slow Damage, Amakano 2 and Muramasa.

Uminekooooo:heart::heart::heart: I still need to play the VN. I did watch the anime years ago on youtube in three parts, if you ever had to do that way back when. I had no idea about streaming websites or how to sail the seven seas. I'm sure you know that the anime is pretty subpar and does not go into depth like the visual novel.

Chaos;Child & Chaos;Head are both on my wishlist. I never seem to catch them on sale. I'll be more on the lookout for when they are and report back my thoughts.

I am going to be bias as all heck and insist that you play through Higurashi. The first chapter is free on steam and gives you a taste of what is to come. It is my favorite series of all time - one of the first animes/VNs I was introduced to in middle school. The characters are amazing (Rena is my waifu. She's literally me), the story is amazing. Then the anime (the first series) is okay, the new one that came out, Gou, is ....way better.

Muv Luv will make you sob. That's all I will say.
