It all depends on the story. If the story doesn't interest me than it doesn't matter how many choices you give me.

However, I think I prefer non-linear to linear stories when it comes to anything I read/play on the computer, or rather interactive fiction type things. I do love to read, and I read a lot of novels, short stories, poetry and comics, fiction and non. When I'm browsing for stories on here I'm generally looking for something I can interact with and still enjoy a story. (Which is why I like video games, even the linear ones, because I'm participating in some way.)

That said, if a KN has a good story I'll read it. The up side to the KN is that it is generally a quick read. (at least the ones I've read were)

A lot of the time I tend to prefer KN-- Higurashi and Umineko are good examples of KNs. I don't read VNs to insert me myself into a story, I read to enjoy what I consider a perfect format for storytelling as well as the story itself. For that reason I'm not that fond of neutral main characters.

Choices are often frustrating for me and I hate replaying parts I've already read to get another ending. So that said I like branching off early in the game if there are to be choices! So I get the maximum amount of new content and less repeating of stuff I've already seen.

Well, I think everything pass to a "evolution process"

Nowadays, at least on commercial games, the VN"s presented itselfs with various systems to let the player interation go further, I think that's the future, but maybe I'm wrong.

I like too non-linear VN"s, and games with a mix of genre's (Rpg, strategy or simulation).

I think they're better than kinect novels ( but more hard to do >.<)
