visual novel influence

Unread postby Dtrini » January 10th, 2007, 2:51 am

was wondering how many people have u influenced into playing a visual novel. because the one u played was great. considering its more like a book than a game. most of my friends hardly play video games far less for visual novels. so have u spawned any visual novels players?

I've showed some of my friends a few of the visual novels I've read/been reading, but I haven't gotten anyone to start reading themselves. But I've gotten people to play Melty Blood with me, which is always fun.

I've been trying to get a friend of mine to try Tsukihime, but he won't play it even though I gave him the disc, and he's also busy playing a copy of Act Cadenza that I asked him to get for me when he went to Japan a few weeks back. He can read/speak Japanese too, but I still can't convince him to try Tsukihime.

Got many people to play some visual novels I've recommended, but I don't think I've gotten anyone to play their first one.

Trying to persuade people to play a visual NOVEL is, probably, an almost impossible task. Especially if they do not know what the hell is an anime or a manga.

Think about it, the only thing you can in a visual novel is look and click at freaking sentences. Not really that interesting for a normal gamer or person.

i guess the only thing that could get come of my friends to play it would be to tell them that it has nude scenes. but then they would skip everything and go right to that.

Exactly, but the thing is, they don't know that. So, because of human nature, they'll just skip the story and go right to the sex scene.

Yes, it is annoying. I prefer the story over the "ero".

If you think about it, part of survival is to reproduce, so, in theory, since we all are part animal, we want to reproduce to survive hence, again, in theory, all humans are perverts. Even if they don't know it.

They are close, in theory. You know why sex drive is one of the things that puberty cause? Yeah....

Im curious as to just how the visual novel scence in japan started.

Visual novels are basically very thick books with graphics and sound to set the mood and show you(in a limited sense) what is going on. Some also give you the ability to affect the outcome of the story.

Seeing as how your average teenager will NOT read a book for fun, its no surprise visual novels have a much more limited audience than conventional games.

The thing is this is not really true in japan, visual novels are a huge portion of the market. Therefore we can conclude that japanese are much more interested in reading than other countries.

Seriously just how many teenagers do you think will read a book for fun...the only books most read are text books that they HAVE to read.

True but those old porn games didnt have much in the way of text or storyline. So at some point, when they started putting out eroge with lots of text and a decent storyline, the japanese customers must have liked reading enough to buy and read/play them.
