Which visual novel require high IQ to read?
There are these things that require a much higher IQ, they’re called actual video games.
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Danganronpa
Father than the blue sky for severe rocket autism.
>>489532753Ain't nothin higher IQ than the purest form of love
>>489532565every VN, especially moe vn
That one with the terrible art where everyone cries all the time or some shit.
>>489532714nah video games are for mongoloids
Remember, this is what peak writing looks like
>>489532565Is her route translated?
25th Wardeasily my favorite readem' up
>>489532565I love Margit!
>>489534018sadly, never ever.
>>489532565KKK because good luck finding it translated.
>>489532565I dunno but I would like to see this cute tomboy's anus.
>>489532565Would you /v/?
>>489534215yamato, you perv~
>>489534016Good try but Dies Irae is Kino and Mercurius is best character.
>>489534170I don't think it is. But I see why some would think that way.
What VN scene or arc did you love the most that you constantly go back to reread it?
>>489532565Majikoi was greatMajikoi S was still pretty goodI have no idea why they keep using Yamato as the MC for every single Majikoi everLike it would be fine if there was a second harem in the Majikoi universe, jesus fuck. Not everyone has to orbit him.
>>489532826As much praise as this gets I will never read it. The art style is abhorrent to me.
>>489532565The untranslated ones, of course.
>>489534270Absolutely, she was the first route I did and frankly the only one I really enjoyed.
Some VNs require a lot of background knowledge on certain cultures and their histories.
>>489534680yume's route in hoshimemoi love that cutie like you wouldn't believe
>>489534825>not liking Wanko's
>>489534825Agave route was better, and had actual character development for Momoyo.
>>489534680Muvluv, PTSD arc. I've never seen an MC make so many bad decisions in succession.
>>489532565I just don't get VNs. They are a medium that were facilitated by the limitations of the time. We are no longer restrained to DOS-era design limitations so why are jpeg text adventures still being produced AND consumed? I'm all for a 'purer artform' but it just seems like lazy devs preferring to make an easy game rather than challenge their skills and budget making something that both represents their idea and conforms to contemporary visual expectations
>>489534938I didn't hate it but her arc was entirely downward with a "well I fucking suck so I better settle I guess" ending which wasn't very satisfying. Wankos a good character.
>>489534764Not really, once you learn nip and read them you realized you wasted your time hyping these poor written pieces of trash
>>489534938Wanko's route is pleb filter, her route is easily the most nuanced and emotionally engaging.
>>489535050Because its basically an audio drama with art to look at, its a legitimate type of media.
>>489532565Unironically Dies Irae
>>489535050I just don't get 2D games. They are a medium that were facilitated by the limitations of the time. We are no longer restrained to DOS-era design limitations so why are two dimensional walky jumpy shooty games still being produced AND consumed? I'm all for a 'purer artform' but it just seems like lazy devs preferring to make an easy game rather than challenge their skills and budget making something that both represents their idea and conforms to contemporary visual expectations
>>489535072>"well I fucking suck so I better settle I guess">ending wasn't very satisfying.That's life man.
>>489535104pls no........she's too scary
>>489535117so you don't have talent too, huh
>>489535075It's almost like these we're written by Nip NEET otakus coombrains, huh. Why are we expecting anything other than /weg/ quality writing?
>>489535236Except Wanko life doesn't crash and burn in any other route except her own. Its as if Yamatos attention ruined everything, even if thats not what was intended in the writing.
>>489535316Fuck off with your prejudices.
>>489535395Yeah it's a problem most VN writing have where the problems a character faces usually never come up otherwise. They usually imply it in other routes but that's the issue with tying major character development to other routes.
>not translatedCAN'S STOP ME FROM USING MACHINE TRANSLATION NIGGER!!!
>>489535395It's referenced in every single epilogue that she doesn't completely her dream, but still supports Momoyo in her own way. The only thing that's stupid is that her strength depends on the route she's in, but either way she never becomes an assistant master.
>>489535395They reference Wanko have significant trouble before settling into her own unique route every epilogue though
I feel like a lot of the heroine routes fall short both in length and entertainment compared to the common / true route. That said Majikoi has a lot of girls whose smile I want to protect
>>489532753 Really hight
>>489535663soon we will able to read vn without learning moonrunes. Thank you google
>>489535395in all routes is implied that she didn't achieved her dream, even in stacy's route, which i'm reading right now, the people at the kawakami temple are saying she doesn't have what it's needed for a temple's master/teacher or whatever
>>489533749>>489533650are these games good
>>489532565Sumika's VN is smart!
>>489534112I wanna bully her
>>489533921That's doesn't disprove the previous statement.Videogames in general require 80+ IQ, and that's above the reach of the average VN reader.
>>489532714are you saying that the people that got filtered by Mr. X in RE2make have high IQ?
>>489536350It's true that machine translations aren't as good as human translations, but it's always slowly improving.Fifteen years ago a babelfish translation was barely intelligible, now a japanese to english google translation is usually understandable.I imagine in another ten years the quality will actually be fairly good.
>>489537201in 10 years, we will have pills that allows you to learn any language
>>489532565>Visual novel>Video gamePick one then fuck off.
>>489537317Monkey Island and Danganronpa are visual novels.
>>489535430>prejudicesStrange, its almost like eroges make up the market majority.>inb4 'I play VNs for the complex story telling'And I read doujins for the character development
>>489536663SUMIKA A SHIT
>>489535663>>489536350>remembering my koikatsu experience with machine translationYou don't want it, TRUST me. We're about decade off before seeing consistent accuracy from free public tools, even when DL translation reaches fruition - which there are probably many databases that have - it will ruminate in the private sector before going full public
>>489535663*blocks your path*
>tfw still haven't played the so called essential VN Muvluv despite having it sit at my harddrive for yearsAs dumb as it soundsI am afraid I will get way too into it.
>>489532714Infuckingplying, at least you have to read in VNs compared to literally brain turn off ps4 games like last of us and etc.
>>489538560>2 full games of glib moe moe romcom and a single game where all of the girls get raped and dieIt's not worth it. Especially if you already got spoiled. Too moe for an edgelord. Too edgy for a moefag.
>>489538331Is that a vn where mc can read people's mind?
>>489538305Don't worry. Machine translation will probably be good enough before most good vn to be translated.
>>489537757only when yamato is the dom
>>489539252Based Battler knows that Gohda is the canon mastermind
I won't share my wife you, no way
>>489537394Monkey Island is a point and click adventure game.Danganronpa is a pile of steaming dog shit with no gameplay, so basically your average VN.Based retard.
>>489539113Yes, and the thoughts are formatted in a way that's unhookable, way too much effort to translate and format manually, and even OCR-reistant in certain scenes.It's the most untranslatable game I know (for technical reasons, not because of language difficulty), but it's obviously an outlier, though still something I like to point out to MTLfags.
>>489532565I'm pirating those Baldr Sky games tomorrow. First VN's I'll have played/read/ what ever the fuck autists wanna call it in years
I read fruit of grisaia and i'm like 3/4ths through the sequel, they're pretty goodYumiko and Sachi are best girls
Who still uses based VNR?
>>489535019>Bad decisionsHis decisions were reasonable, I don't get what you mean by this.
>>489541041I do because there's nothing else decent, it's such a fucking piece of shit though
>>489536628They are... pretty complex
>>489538331>>489540153Looks like its kana heavy, shouldn't be that hard. I don't know but at my level reading raw VNs feels like a child reading aloud in my head, in that I understand the gist but the stories always seem elementary learning-to-read tier and very lacklustre.
>>489542240perfection, too bad about the cuck shit
>>489538785>Ctrl + Enter>Skip most irrelevant dialog & scenes>save before major turning points>pick random choices>do this until you get the good endYou don't even need to know english to do this, keep seething VNigger
>>489540601I was sold on trying it but after an hour of sifting through that bread yesterday I burnt out that idea, it's hard to find a VN I'm motivated to really go after

>>489534682Harems are trash.
>>489543414VNs are only good for porn and this is how porn VNs are done, video games need at least 90 IQ to complete unlike your cummie games
>>489543414>speedreading cuntwhere did he ever even imply that he actually reads, you utter imbecile? Was it between the part where he says "skip the dialogue and scenes" and "pick random choices"?

remember that tomorrow BALDR SKI, one of the best gameplay VNs will finally be released in english, ALWAYS AND FOREVER
>>489532565I kinda miss the Maji de Friday threads.
>>489548167make one tomorrow
>>489535050there's a fanbase for everythingsome people like bookssome people like interactivitysome people like text adventurescombine them and you get VNsAs much as I hate considering them as games, I can't pretend they don't have their own respective charms.Though usually they suck as literature form, I still love the art and choice aspects they provide.Normally, I hate VN games, I like the art, music and setting in some, but most have too obnoxious translation and horrible wish fullfilment writing.I get that people want to use them as escapism and the like, but honestly, they're almost always so ridiculously unrealistic that even I, a die hard weeb, cringe at them.
>>489532565Dies irae actually
>>489548249Tis the season I guess. We'll see.
>>489548578what's this about?

>>489549184better than fate stay night
What's some VNs with android versions/conversions or which can be emulated? I find it hard to justify spending the time I have at the pc on reading, but I would certainly love to read them on slow days at work
>>489543150>play action game>turn on invincibility>hold forward until you winwow video games fucking suck
>>489532826>start reading it>get to one fucking hour of gay bullyingWhat the fuck bros
>>489534170Higurashi art IS bad, you can like it but that doesn't make it good, Umineko is acceptable mostly because of how expressive it is.

>>489552023If you thought Ehrenburg was in any way relatable the problem is yours, not the VN's.
>>489549184So a group of nazis come together during world war 2 except theyre not REALLY nazis and then they fight in ww2 but they purposefully lose so they can come back later to a japanese town in 2006 to do a ritual where a teenage girl gives birth to a castle built on the souls of the dead that eventually grows to cover the entire universe and the only one who can stop this from happening is a japanese teenage boy with the ghost of a girl who died during the french revolution implanted in his arm who teams up with a japanese nazi who’s brother and father was fused into a zombie that wields a fake version of the spear of longinus and it all ends up leading to a big fight with a jewish snake-man in space
>>489535050While visual novels are largely outdated these days they used to fill the niche light novels and web novels now do - very very long anime stories to kill time with. However, again, they've been largely replaced by light novels and web novels which serve the same purpose.

>>489550934Mentally ill yahwehfag
It always bothers me that Koihime Musou is never mentioned in VN threads despite being so huge in Japan. I have no idea why it never caught on in the West even though it had an official translation and a fairly popular anime.

>>489559585She's a woman. That's why.
>>489559486>she moves away to germanyFor a year. Then she gets married to Yamato and has a kid with him.

>>489563927It's written by Romeo Tanaka so yes
>>489564563It's pretty hard not to love ArcI'm just restarting again now to do Far Side for the first time, any recommendations on who to go for first? Or is there a mandatory order?Either way I'm excited for it
>>489554339>he hasn't even finished the PTSD arc
For me? It's 428: Shibuya Scramble. The best visual novel.
>>489532565>anime>high IQ anythingwew
>>489565560i just finished it a bit ago>00 unit is sumika
Any that are untranslated since it takes a bit of effort to learn a second language
>>489565556It has been pretty long since I played them but I'd recommend you to with Akiha first and then the maids since their origin is the last twist of the story, I went with Hisui first and then Kohaku since it felt the most natural.>>489554339>>489565560Is there any steam version of alternative that I can download that is NOT IGG spyware?
>>489556534the sequels should have just been about her then.to be honest I didn't read them, but after going through mitchers story and then hearing that they'd retcon that I definitely didn't want to either.fuck them. her story was great
>>489554729>If my Heart had WingsShut your fucking mouth.
>>489565601while it's a pretty good VN overall the beginning and some of the characters do drag on.It's one of those "worth playing for the ending" kinda VNs
>>489553649A good VN will make you care about the characters you're suppose to like.A bad VN will make you hate the characters you're suppose to like.
>>489566171Thanks man, I figured it'd be something like thatTime to go fuck (nbr) imouto

>>489567737>Implying the other girls have anything other than tits, cripple fetish, or child hood friend.
>>489568105>one of the girls with actual suicide-worthy traumathats bullshit and you know it
>>489568105>>489566241Not that guy but the idea is fine but the execution is pretty awful. Most of the drama is about Mitcher and Yuuji's inability to articulate to one another that they're dating. Most of the trauma is secondary to that, and it's pretty unfun to read. The stuff about the second girl, her home life and school friend were admittedly interesting but it really takes a backseat to the dating stuff.
Any VN about existential crisis or body horror?Thinking of something like SOMA.

>>489565560why is she the best side hoe?
>>489566571That's an interesting opinion.I thought the ending was the weakest part, shit dragged on forever. The idea that it's just a setup for an anime makes it feel pretty cheap too.

>>489573418her ordeal is interesting on paper but it has absolutely zero to do with her personality or character, and isn't even relevant to her current situation. it's just a "shitty thing that happened to me" that they tacked onto an otherwise unrelated character. survivors guilt isn't interesting compared to even the maid's bullshit

>>489573778What's the difference between A-1 and A-2?
>>489575203Routes for different characters, they're fan discs
>>489575405Ahh I see, btw do I need to change the language on windows 10 too? because that shit is telling me to do that on Win 7.

>>489575543Not the language, the locale. And yes. I just use locale emulator.
How do I write an interesting VN protagonist without making him a batshit lunatic like Shirou or Okabe?
>>489574807>not knowing Rin was easily the best from day fucking one
>>489576050Write him to be a gigachad with madman impulses like Shiki
>>489576050Okabe wasn't a lunatic, he just acted out for funShirou was genuinely crazy though
>>489576050okabe is just a man with a boring life and to not feel like that, he invented a persona and started reading about science in wikipedia
>>489576050Make them a girl, boom now I'm interested
Strip battle days 2, obviously. It takes skill to win at rock paper scissors.
>>489577519there isn't a single good VN where the protag is a woman
>>489576454This.The Tohno gland spares no one.
>>489577845is this another whore for makoto?
>>489578518That's his mother, how dare you
>>489578914really?!do they fuck?
>>489552313I like VN's because it's basically a mix of LN/Anime with actual payoff. It's also an all in one set (usually)
Lee is olev.
>>489573530>Somebody fucking translate this?
>>489532826Knew this would be posted before I even entered the thread. >>489532565Steins;Gate throws a fuckload of scientific theory at you throughout the game. I'm unashamed to say that I didn't retain most of it. I'd then say VLR and 999 are in the same vein because they also go indepth about test cases and scientific theories that reinforce the fuckery that's going on.
>>489536628999 and VLR are friggin fantastic, the third game is the bastard red head child of the series that should've been left on the side of the road. I could rant all night about how much I hate that game, but just know that the series took an unfortunate drop in quality towards the end. The part that really irritates me is that I'm playing through AI right now and at several instances I feel the magic that was contained in 999 and VLR. Which means Uchi never lost it, that idiot just never used it for ZTD.
zoomers won't read vns
>>489580651Zoomers were tricked into reading Doki Doki and Dangan Ronpa, anything is possible
>>489534848based and lolipilled
>>489534481>0It's a no from me, they tried too hard to replicate the magic of the original and fell short. Especially in adding a pointless character like Kagari.
>>489535019You mean the segment after Chomp? Shit definitely got real after that... I haven't gone back to replay them, but the parts I always think about are Takeru crying in Jingujii's lap, him trying to push Sumika away, and him reading her diary.
>>489570467Funny thing about her character for me is I didn't really really like her until the last 50% of alternative. I really didn't like her in Extra because she kept flipping Takeru and there's no way a girl as hooked as her on a doc is gonna drop him to date a punk like takeru. In alternative however I appreciated that gradually she started to drop her defenses and openly show emotion. Especially when Jingujii died and Munakata got injured
>>489574807I shit you not, I ended up on Rin's route by accident. I was aiming for Remi and was playing it safe in general, got the bad ending, my last save was the branch decision for Rin to join the art club. I honestly think I got the best route on the first try, I loved her character and never finished the game.
>>489576050Make him the literal opposite of Nishijou Takumi, I have never hated a protagonist as much as him. Siggy from VLR is a good template of a brotag. >buff>stands up for others>funny>lowkey genius>confidentGranted I don't think Okabe's chuniness was that terrible all things considered. I actually kinda missed it while playing through 0.
>>489584906>Hating based TakumiCringe Takuru is the superior SciADV protagonist anyway
Im currently learning Chink Speak and have the urge to play a Vn in english, but knowing how close I am to being able to understand Jap i not sure it would be worth doing so since an english Vn provides an inferior experience, any Vns which are actually well translated and are not signifcantly better in Japanese?
Forgot Clone Oboro
hello is this video game thread?
>tfw spending hours lurking through vndb for a VN that interests me >all I find is melodramatic pretentious stuff that takes itself too seriously, moe moe trash where nothing interesting happens, or edgelord shit where everyone gets raped and killed

>>489586195the popular stuff is all popular because it's not those things
>>489586195Go play OMGWTFOTLIt's short and good.
>>489585635>wahhh rimi help me! I'm scared!>I don't care if my sister is being held hostage I'm going homeTakumi's biggest fault was that he didn't get interesting until the literal last 2 hours of the game. He should've gotten that damn sword in chapter 6. It would've been so much more tolerable that way. Funny enough I just started Child a couple days ago. Already I find that protag more enjoyable that Takumi. Hell, Child's protag is actively trying to solve the murders rather than run from them. I love the design for serika, she looks so cute. I hope she validates my initial interest in her.
>>489584906Fucking faggot. >>489586871You missed the point. I don't expect good taste from a retard weaboo faggot.
>>489586871I like Takuru because even if he a spineless coward he is really interesting, but I really prefer Takuru pro-activity and most girls in C;C are interesting, except Hana
>>489586871unga bunga me no like bad person MC
The recent love for Ootomo heals my soul
>>489587826compelling argument, please explain to me the point I missed and how Takumi isn't the world's worst protagonist. >>489588251>>489587826samefag and do you really expect me to believe there's 3 people that pirated the game, played it, and enjoyed Takumi as a protagonist in this thread? >>489587891The most interesting part about him was a something that was completely out of his control, the core of who he was and how he acted was irritating.
>>489588574May God have mercy on your shit taste. It's retards like you why we need to have QUIRKY AND SHOUNEN protagonists. Go back and read your boku no fuckman school retard.
>>489552319>no you don't understand you have to click a dead girl's cooter THREE times to get a piece of paper or you're locked into a bad end>yes, you have to click an extremely specific part of a bookcase TWICE to get a clue or else you get locked out of a good end>you know that part of the desk you can click on to get a clue? well you have to click precisely in the middle of that clue to have a chance at the true endI like Kara no Shoujo a lot but it's complete bullshit at times without a walkthrough
>>489588523BROS NO ITS NOT FAIR WE NEED THE ROUTE
>>489588574 GRUG NO LIKE BAD MAN CHARACTER HE BAD CHARACTER
>>489588846Let me take a stab, you relate to Takumi on a personal level? Is that why you're getting so defensive, because he reminds you of yourself? A pathetic neet that prefers to live alone and couldn't find the comfort of a woman unless she made the first move? If so, then my bad, when you get your D-sword do the world a favor and fall on it.
>>489589053Nah. Think I'll pass on this bait. Tell me why you like him and maybe I'll indulge.
>>489532826>tfw dropped this shitwhy did they bother to keep going after the crazy plot reveal? i can't imagine anything past that is worth half a shit. also just felt overall really pointless. way too much fucking rape.
>>489588893>>489552319I actually downloaded Kara no Shoujo today, what am I in for?

>>489589845I liked Okabe because he started as a weeb and quickly got his shit together when it all hit the fan. He went through some really tough moments and fought tooth and nail to save everyone. Shirogane Takeru is in the same vein. Hell, all time travelers suffer. Takumi hid like a coward till the last second then got a sword power up and finally decided to do something. At least now I know you're trolling, how are you gonna suggest I go to reddit after posting a life is strange character? >>489590121Man, you are a fucking asshole. >>489589806Extra-Unlimited-Alternative, not that it matters now.

>>489534682I was thinking the same thing until I played Tsujidou.Holy fuck was that MC a goddamn mistake, I never wanted to self insert as le hermit crab man more.
>>489593570It depends, what kind of genre are you interested in?Do you prefer something with gameplay or pure text?
>>489536628999 is good, all the other ones suck balls
>>489593792I dropped it when he asked her to stop fighting.
>tfw no good trap VNsA story where the MC battles with his fleeting attraction to the feminine qualities of the trap would be a godsend read. No medium ever wants to talk about that bittersweet shit.
>>489594245because traps are shit
>>489593820Pure text. My only experience with VNs are the ace attorney,999 and Danganronpa series, so i would like to see the other side. The only thing i want tho is a good story.
>>489593792He's alright in best girl route though
>>489594586Yeah, he's only alright because he's a pussy boy with the 'buddhism' shit that isn't even real buddhism.Compare it to the absolute madman stuff Yamato does during some routes and we have a shit fuckin' MC. Even if he's overused, I still would have VASTLY preferred Yamato as the star of Tsujidou since it'd save Maki's route.
>>489594571Steins;Gate for "sci-fi" shenanigansHouse of Fata Morgana for a great love story
>>489594753>Maki's route.Maki's route has bigger problems than that, not even Yamato can save a route like that judging from S. The big problem with it is that literally nothing happens for the most of it. Renna's route is the only one that even really felt like Majikoi for me, it was fun comfy and had a lot of character interaction that was just missing for the others imo
Yamato is based
>>489594932Believe me, I know. Maki didn't deserve a route that shit.
>>489594571If you want something closer to pure mystery, as other anon recommended Higurashi is pretty good, keep in mind that the first few chapters are rather slow and that it may require some modding in order to make it more enjoyable (look up 07th-mod, try to install the original sounds and soundtracks and to use PS2 or original sprites which I consider the best, some might argue differently but to each their own)If you want something different from pure mystery you can read Steins;Gate which is a pseudo combination of sci-fi and mystery or Chaos;Head which is pretty much a suspense mystery with some sci-fi spiced in.If you really don't want any mystery at all you can try Saya no Uta which I won't spoil since the VN itself is pretty self explanatory 10 minutes in and has no filler whatsoever since it's just 10 hours longAnd if you just want memes read Hatoful Boyfriend
>>489595135Besides the first few obligatory routes to get to the good stuff, that VN ended up being extremely good considering the fact that the plot is literally about a girl getting fucked by pigeons
>>489534270No, she's too high maintenance. I'd rather a dog or a sword autist.
>>489595052>>489594571Also The Silver Case, Eve: Burst Error all his games and Umineko
>>489594920>>489595052>>489595436I already had my eye on House of fata morgana and The silver case so thanks for the others recommendations,anons. Really appreciate it.

>>489593028There are two moments I'd call jumpscares. One is pretty obvious and happens gradually, the other is completely without warning.
>>489603886Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai
>>489532565All VNs require high IQs to read. They are the highest form of entertainment.
>>489602976Probably at least a year from now. They keep delaying it to try and produce a promised physical Vita version to ship to backers. Sad thing is though that the Vita got discontinued in the west close to 4 years ago, physical Vita game production is limited to only Japan now so they had to renegotiate with a Japanese company to handle physical game production which has only cost them more time and money than they expected. They would have been way better off accepting the loss when Sony announced physical Vita game production ended and gave Vita backers the option to change to PC or request a refund. Now they have all these sunk costs but not enough money to hand out refunds so they're sorta screwed and doomed to lose money hence why they're taking so long to do anything.
>>489604271What game is that? Also install Asian languages ffs
>>489604570They have locale emulator now.Weebs have high IQ.

>>489609481You act like /vn/ doesn’t have that shit too, but even worse since it isn’t an obvious shitposter you can ignore but a pretentious faggot who autistically replies to everyone.
>>489609321It's true, but how did he physically do that when they're supposed to share the same body? I feel like there's potential for a lot of plot holes if you go around looking for where that idea might clash. While we're talking about SubaHibi, I still feel the game has a lot of untapped meaning that people have not worked out yet due to the amount of things it's trying to cover. Going through it once and reading all the content still isn't enough to ensure you see what it's attempting to do, and I am pretty sure you need familiarity with analytic philosophy to get the references it conveys on that end. I was a little disappointed to see the plot get so straightforward in the second half of the game, but there's still a lot to uncover as far as interpreting it goes.>>489609481It's /v/, what do you expect? Still better than the general.
>>489609885I think Tomosane awoken again when Takuji head hitted the concrete and they pretty swapped place between the third party and the actual controller of the body by then
>>489609382Make one tomorrow.
>>489590330Takumi has no character progression until the very end, and it makes it feel so empty. If that was the point or something, then it just shows that he's a piece of shit character that was made to be a hated egotistical coward. I don't need 95% of a story to demonstrate to me that he has issues, but how they better themselves over a story of their undesirable flaws.
