Questions about Ren'Py should go in the Ren'Py Questions and Announcements forum.
Dear experienced/inexperienced VN players alike, what are your most loved/hated tropes you see in VNs? As a creator myself, I really want to know what different people like seeing and what they've had enough of, and I'm sure lots of other people would also benefit from knowing.
What do you think is overdone? Too easy? Or not used enough? Spill your opinions to me, I'm really really curious!

I actually love the overly shy cutesy girls, but often they like many other tropes are written for that purpose only and don't seem like real people. I don't like super sporty in your face I always forget about others feelings girls... but if your write them well I end up liking them despite the fact that I automatically dislike them. It's about not getting too attached to the trope and thinking about why they are the way they are, why they feel the way they do. This adds another layer of depth that can make even unreal situations seem reasonable.
That being said, there is a place for mindless sprites that are just there to be romanced. Some people enjoy that more then well written stories that add depth. So nothing is really wrong or right to do in story telling, you'll just capture a different audience. I think you should go for what you enjoy most. You'll get different answers depending on the site you ask on, because different kinds of people will answer. What is popular or not popular here, you might find is the total opposite on another site.
