Hey guys, 

 

See alot of people getting visual novels now. I know that the trophies are easy and quick platinums but do people find novels that they enjoy and if so, which ones? 

 

Maybe looking at getting a couple to try this out and see if i enjoy it

While not entirely VNs; zero escape games are pretty sweet. You should give those a go if you haven't already.

 

Personally I'm not a big fan of VNs, I'd rather read a book tbh.

I really enjoyed Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and Amnesia: Memories personally.

 

I'm yet to play any of the Danganronpa or Steins;Gate games but I've heard nothing but good things about all of them.

Here are some I enjoyed. VN's are definitely an acquired taste and you'll love them or hate them.

 

Amensia Memories

Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth

Period Cube: Shackles of Amadeus

Root Letter

Steins Gate

Steins Gate 0

XBlaze Code Embryo (Iffy)

+1 for Steins;Gate

 

I'd never pay full price for a visual novel there's next to no replay value. However, they go on sale often enough.

Loved Code Realize and maybe Norn9 - a little bit less, but still good. Steins;Gate is awesome once you get past  a few chapters, and I would really recommend the Danganronpa series.

I've enjoyed just about all of them that I've played. If you're looking for an easy introduction into the genre, try the zero escape games or danganronpa games. They have game play elements shoved in to the stories so you're not just reading the whole time (which can be a turnoff to those new to VN's.) Or if you're looking for a high quality VN to start, try Steins;Gate. It takes a few chapters to get going because of a massive amount of exposition, but once it gets going it's a 30 hour thrill ride that you don't want to get off.

Currently playing Root Letter and really enjoying it! 

Danganronpa imo is the golden VN series, and of course steins gate is just stellar! 

 

And ya I don't agree with rushing them. Don't buy them then. That's like watching a movie on fast-forward. You get an idea but you'll never really understand what's going on. It's just a waste money and time. 

 

If you're new, Danganronpa! If you've played a VN before then Steins Gate. 

I found Danganronpa to be easier to get into faster. God great games.

Don't worry I would never destroy others experience with a game. Even if I don't like it.

It just never clicked to me. Unlike Virtues Last Reward or Steins Gate. But I hope you keep having fun and end up liking it.

It has no plat, but honestly I feel like the Hatoful Boyfriend games are a must.

 

Other than that, Zero Escape. It's probably one of my favorite game series, period.

I personally hate them and avoid them, I haven't enjoyed any of the ones I played, steins gate *awaits the sniper bullets for admitting he didn't like steins gate* xblaze which was terrible imo but maybe I will give root letter as it got really good feedback. Danganronpa is another I hated.

I am about to going back to Code Realize on the VITA since it's standing on 1%. I heard it's a quik platinum. Amnesia i have downloaded back when it was free with plus but don't know much about the game either. Saw a couple of Stein;Gate games on disc witch i can pick up later at some point.

 

But those VITA Japanese games are so expensive that it is not really worth it for me, unless you can get them really cheap. Another thing is that they are hard to resell, because you getting less money back for them. So that's why i skip them mostly.

At least you are skipping buying them and not actually skipping them.

I'll save you the headache...don't play Amnesia it's completely inferior to Code Realize.

Yeah they are pretty pricey. It doesn't matter if you look on Play Asia or on eBay, they're expensive everywhere. eBay does tend to be slightly cheaper if you can find the one you're looking for.

 

Code: Realize should definitely be your first port of call in terms of which one to play though. I really enjoyed it even though it's an Otome game.

VNs

 

 

It's a cardinal sin.

 

 

Anyway, this is not a matter of choice unfortunately... there aren't many localized VNs so... you can pretty much pick up anything.

But Zero Escape... is Zero Escape =D

Skip VN's and join the dark side ;)

Except if it's a Zero Escape games. Read that, it's amazing.
