So, I've got a question - I've got a v. good friend who I would love to introduce to visual novels. They're somewhat unfamiliar and uninterested in anime style/aesthetic, although it doesn't really displease them either. In addition, they're rather prudish, so my
And with that, I'd like to open the flood gates and ask for help! They're most interested in science-fiction, mystery, and adventure, especially with a more modern bent to it. As such, here's the list of VN's and VN-likes I've got so far:
Steins;Gate, Hatoful Boyfriend, the Ace Attorney series + Ghost Trick, possibly Umineko (they'd love the atmosphere and story, but - ). I would like a few more professional titles, perhaps a few more hand-held 'VN-likes' (Nine Doors, maybe? Hotel Dusk??), and - of course - your own recommendations. English-language, please!
Naturally, I'd like you to keep in mind that anything that is really much more then pg-13 content-wise is going to lose their interest quickly; they're fine with violence, though, so go figure. I don't think they're really big on romance (of any kind) either, though they're not really opposed to it as long as it doesn't distract from the plot. If you recommend a game from the Forums/your own game, I'll try to get around to reviewing myself as well, though I've been kittens for time, recently; so just expect it random and arbitrarily into the future!
Thanks a million - and please wish me luck!
