      It is. But
      Its a subversion of the genre, essentially. So linear all your choices boil down to picking obvious routes.
      H-scenes are just there to qualify as a VN and are by far the worst part about it
      You're not a hero, you do not save anyone, you do not solve any riddles to do so, you just have brain tumours.
      The story is told through random characters and has big enough plotholes you tie it all together somehow in the end yourself.
      Tldr Its a compact, corrupted, eldtritch, *in your face* version of higurashi
      Its "The Outsider" of VNs
      Lately it just got over hyped by sexual minorities many of which I despise but I remember playing it like 10 years ago and no one was actually talking about it at that time, so that's that.

      • 1 week ago

        it is not a subversion can you people that defend every vn that is wtf if it was a dating sim but dark at least inform yourself of the medium having an butthole protagonist and all the routes end in doom is nothing new and was super over play during the 90s. Hell i can't think of a single nitro plus game where they don't brutalize the heroines or the protagonist is an butthole or an autist

    I don't know about most overrated, but it probably produces the VN fanbase which has their heads up their asses the most.

      I think I can come up with a couple other VN fanbases with their heads further up their asses than that one.

    Any VN without inner thought or whatever it was called. Basically one where MC thinks about something for hours and we need to read it. I fricking hate it. I don't mind story is super long as long as I'm not reading MC fantasy inner thought. I don't know hot to search for it in VNDB.

          Books do the same thing too. It's just a part of the written medium, that's actually why people like it so much.

          Inner monologue is basically the defining thing that separates books from shit like movies.

    The correct answer is some untranslated VN. That's always how it goes.
    >nip readers praise some VN that doesn't have a TL and shit on EOPs who can't read it.
    >it gets a TL
    >it's shit
    >they move onto another untranslated VN and the cycle continues.

    I'm watching umineko blind with some friends of mine, and so far this us the most maudlin anime trope shit I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of shitty animes. Do people unironically enjoy umineko or are they just entertained by how ridiculous it is? Every time I think it can't get any more incoherent, they start having a yugioh battle or doing shonen power level shit. I'm in the third chapter and it just keeps getting more moronic. I am going to watch the whole thing just to see how stupid it gets, it's that kind of bad for me, anyway.

            Theres no gameplay, it's a vn. My friend is streaming it and we're all reading it at the same time. Sometimes voices are made. It's kind of like watching something with subtitles.
            After this I'm having suspicions my friend might be a fujo. I can definitely see a fujo thinking this is unironically good shit.

      yeah it's unironically the equivalent to "confessions" of our time. maybe not milenial definig but at least a bicentennial level work.

      and the best part is it actually better on re-read because literally almost every scene is foreshadowing or a nod to hidden truths.

        I feel that it's just a collection of overused anime tropes so far. The child abuse is written fairly realistically but that's the only real compliment I can give that isn't backhanded. Maybe it's one of those things that gets better after you're like 200 hours in? We are only on the third chapter

      If it counts, I have it on hold (just got done reading a physical book, and about to start another), is Making * Lovers. A bit of rom/com to mix it up/contrast with the physical stuff I'm reading which is vastly different. So far it seems decent, and it's one of few rom games where the cast isn't children which is a rarity amongst VNs AKA full of pedos.

    Nope, it starts off well but by episode 4 it really dips in quality, kinda raises it again with 5 but not by much. Then completely collapses with 6 and never recovers and thanks to this piece of shit and hack writer Higarashi is ruined as well.

    Given all this, you'd think it was a masterpiece, right? Sadly not the case. The most interesting part of the game is the prologue and then the game goes in a totally different direction for its remainder. It also becomes increasingly convoluted and quite frankly incoherent towards the end.
    It's a shame because all the pieces were there for a 10/10 VN with great potential to become a series.

    Umineko is a story about stories, about what it means to write and read in the first place. About the unique human trait of expression and communication through art. I refuse to elaborate further. If you're too moronic to get that, you deserve all the mockery you constantly get online.

      Its a story about how one guy's death can completely ruin a writer's mojo and it shows after he died. It got so much worse after and he never recovered, though his light hearted comedies are okay I guess.

        Episode 8 is one of the best parts. It's the pinnacle of the whole thing, the crown that ties it all together and solidifies the point. Umineko did not derail at any point, even after BT's death.
        Wouldn't know about Ryukishi's work post-Umineko, as far as I'm concerned he's a one-hit wonder.

      In good sense of the word, it's mystery autism that relentlessly tests you in later part of the game. Ioved it, but depends on what you're looking for, characters are of very little importance, it's all about figuring how it works. Wish I had another one like that to read.

      It kinda promises a death game yet turns into detective story very fast. Still very nice one if you want it, but can see some potential for disappointment there. Ending was nice though, if abrupt.

    so far i've read/finished Fata Morgana and Umineko

    those were the 2 VN that interested me the most.

    Umineko is way more ambitious with the overall story but i think Fata Morgana is more cohesive and satisfying.
    Also there are some sketchy implications with Umineko when it comes to delusions and the value of truth.

    i have critiques but i liked them both.
    definitely not time wasted. Fata Morgana especially implemented its music very well. worth for that alone.
