    If anyone else here has played Chaos;head, do you agree that the protagonist is a whiny annoying loser?
    The rest of the VN is great but it's hard to call something good when you utterly hate the main char throughout the entire thing.
    an unlikeable main character seems to be a recurring problem in VNs

    that is literally the only reason I refuse to play that game
    Same here, but for me also because some characters appear dumb as bricks.

    Fine, I might look into it once I finish Rin's arc but I don't feel too comfortable lowering my standards on drawing style for the great story. I can only beg that the saucer-eyes it doesn't distract me too much. It's a damn shame when one aspect of a piece of work detracts from the entirety of the greater experience, visuals in particular, which I personally find myself cursed with sometimes.

    Am I the only one who wasn't "disturbed" by the art at all?

    I loved every single part of Clannad, mainly, the story, secondly, the amazing soundtrack.

    It looks odd but it's hardly that bad or important.

    If the art bothers you(not you iLife) that fucking much watch the anime.

    Lots of "whoa, so that's how s/he managed to do it" moments? Like, superb masterplans and such. Absolutely loved those in Death note.
    If you liked death note in any way, you'll like G-Senjou no Maou. Although after looking through the thread, you already started it. haha.

    Which character are you going for first? I recommend doing Haru's last. It's the most dramatic and adrenaline-inducing. At least for me it was.
    I don't know what's even going on. I think I originally chose Tsubaki, then it gave me a second choice and chose no. So I assume i'm already going down the haru path, which I thought would be the best one to go down.    I assumed that if I stayed with tsubaki, I would eventually become a better person, but also stay forever in debt to gonzou. He might be happier and more kind to others, but he would also become 'livestock'. However, seeing as maou was also trying to get rid of gonzou maybe things would've run their course anyways. Meh.    I don't really plan on doing this one more than once, unless I get a catastrophic ending, because it seems like it will be a very long read even if I can auto-skip it. I'll gauge my interest on it once i'm done.

    He's a delinquent with a painful past, and he isn't an asshole.
    Delinquent? He arrives too late too school everyday AFAIK.
    Oh he got beat by his father boohoo, I got beat by my stepfather weekly.
    I had almost no father in my life and then when I started reaching out to him he died of cancer.
    I would say that I had a rougher past then this whiny little SOB.
    Maybe I'll find out that he had a rougher past but for know, he is a total asshole.

    this

    most of the problems i hear result in me thinking "i've been through worse", in a reassuring light

    hisao was a pussy and a dumbass by my standards, so if the main characters in other VNs are even worse-

    Yeah, couldn't wait. Not too far in yet but I have a feeling this is going to be fucking awesome. Actually noticing same problems you have, I can't lay down the game

    Either you or EcksDee know if the game has an ending that's considered canon, the "true ending", whatever you want to call it? Usually, when I get the ending, I lose all interest in a game. So it'd be great if I got the true ending right away. If the game doesn't even have one, I'll just choose the best bitch and fuck her.

    Except he isn't an asshole and you saying that doesn't somehow change that fact or make you right. In fact it just makes you look like a someone who has no idea what he's talking about.

    It doesn't get really feely until the second season. That's when they start to pile on the feels.

    Okay, then explain to me why he isn't instead of telling me he isn't or would that be a spoiler. I'm just saying that his "tough" history doesn't make it right for him to act like he does.

    Of course it would be a spoiler.

    Act like what? A nice guy? I don't recall him ever being a straight out asshole and I re-watched the series a couple weeks ago. I think you're pulling shit right out of your ass. The only person he even vaguely acts bad to is his dad but he has his reasons, I can't go into detail though because of spoilers.

    Just play the damn thing and stop your whining about things that aren't true at all.

    Edited:

    I mean shit, OTHER CHARACTERS even comment on how he is compassionate even though he doesn't always show it.

    Edited:

    The simple fact that he helps the other girls totally disproves he is an asshole right off the bat. I honestly have no idea how anyone could come to the conclusion that he is an asshole.

    Okay, maybe he wasn't an asshole and I should not have used that word. I am not going to go any deeper in this because I don't want to write an immensely large post as to why I take it personally when someone acts like such a victim for no apparent reason.

    Oh shit, you're right. But the proportion of feels in the second season are much higher than in the first season imo.

    A good basic VN with not too "distracting art" (whatever the fuck that is) are the "Da Capo" series. Personally I like the second one best, but the first one should be played first so you get a grasp on how everything works.

    Well, I cried like, 2 or 3 times during the first season, but during the second one I was in tears most of the time.

    da capo does have pretty distracting art but not near as bad as clannad or kanon

    Why are you reading VNs for the art. The art is there so you can get an basic idea of whats happening in the story, and what the characters look like its not meant to be the main focus.

    What about something like Utawarerumono or Muv Luv. In the first you get interactive sections where you control some soldiers in a battle. Just as much planning and strategy needed as in Dragon age.

    And in Muv Luv you get shit like


    Which I'd wager is just as exciting to play as anything Mass Effect can throw at you.
    Galaxy Angel series comes to mind. It's all light-hearted star trek style stuff, but it's got tactical homeworld-esque battles. Which is fun.
