I'm playing Fate/Stay night on my pc, and two days ago i passed
I don't know why, but since then, i was't able to play the game anymore. Of course i'll finish it the same, because i really enjoyed it the past days, and i'm a little bit obsessed in 100% completion, but i need some time to restore myself from that scene.
It is a strange sensation indeed, because i know the game was an eroge before playing it, and actually i like hentai stuffs too (i used to work on scanlations of dojinshi on one of the biggest hentai site on the net), but this time was totally different, i felt somewhat "guilty" on seeing that scene, and i've tried to explain myself why.
So, the best explanation i've found is that i've reached so deep degree of immersion in Fate's story that, simply, that scene doesn't seems to me to fit with the rest of the game. Basically, i think that visual novels are somewhat like books, and books, more than comics or videogames, requires a lot of mental work for figuring situation and characters. But this also means that the story of a book is more "personalized" from one's mind that stories from comics or vgs, where instead there are a lot of supports (pictures, expressions, cutscenes...) that helps to figure out the story in a more "objective" way.
So, for what i've "personalized" about the Fate characters, i wasn't able at all to fit that scene in the story, it's really seems unnecessary to me for the story. Using a "strong" metaphor, it's just like:
As i told, i'm surely going to finish the game, and i won't use the non-ero patch, because i like to play Fate as it was intended to be played, but, surely, things will never be the same again.
Please let me know your opinions on this.
