Thanks for explaining! I don't think most of the games I like even have opening movies or promotional videos!shilkefair wrote:oh sorry about that, i'm not specific enough.trooper6 wrote: Oh I should have probably mentioned this as well. I'm a Mac gamer and if it isn't available on the Mac, I'm not going to play it, no matter how interesting it seems.
Also, what are OP and PV?
OP = Opening movie
PV = Promotional Video
i hope that answer your question

There are a lot of games out there that have good arts and stories but don't have good writing. The game should be interesting and easy to understand. I usually stop playing that game if it is confusing or boring.

Gotta have a good story.
I mean, good graphics and music are pluses, but not a necessity for me.
As a wise person once said (can't remember who) "A good story can save bad music and art, but good music and art can't save a bad story.".

For Hakuoki, it had shinsengumi...
I didn't even know the name of these kind of games but then I searched for more on apple store and found voltage inc.'s games. I found their graphics way more appealing than the previous game but didnt enjoy the stories so much after playing the free prologues so I put it on hold.
It was only after like a year when I kind of got into anime that I realised that I wanted to play it again. A couple of months later after playing almost every route of "In your arms tonight", I realised I wanted to make my own story and randomly found Ren'Py. Took me a while to find this forum and realise it was the official one where people actually help each other, so I signed up.

I'm with this. Well, with characters and artwork in about the same place. Artwork is going to be the thing that catches my attention first in a VN. The characters also have to be interesting enough for me to keep reading.SundownKid wrote:For me it would probably go something like:
Artwork > Story > GUI > Music
