      It grows on you. It makes me horny instantly.

        Exactly. It has to overstay it's welcome to only then elicit the primal instincts you're looking for. It's the game telling you to be horny instead of making you horny, and you need to be subservient and obey the horny command.
        Japanese games have varying artstyles that, unlike the cookie-cutter gradient-shaded designs of WEG, better mirror the artist's views and personality. That means some of it will not fly for you, and some of it will make you instantly diamonds without having to be an acquired taste.
        That happens because enough of the artist's personality seeps through the work that you feel like you're fricking a real person instead of a western cardboard cutout. People want to frick people.

        They realized milking patreon is better than actually making a good product

        Because in patreon there's a more hands-on approach that creates the artist-player connection missing in the games.

      The art from summertime is fine. Even if you don't like it, the game's writing carries it decently. The only awful looking character is the MC who's a little goblinish but the girls are cute enough. But you don't usually see an artstyle like that in weg. You usually see shit like pic rel. And how people manage to get off to this shit is beyond me. It isn't cute it's fricking scary looking. And the writing is horribly paced esl trash. Whoever recommended this as a "fine substitute to summertime" is moronic.

    Most suck. Granted, same can be said for hentai games now, most of em are trash. But most western ones are just the exact same game, characters made with the exact same program, with a plot that pretty much entirely exists to necessitate you putting your dick in people.

    Even the less interesting VNs frok back in the day tended to have more to it. Dividead is ancient and a little scuff, but was my introduction to VNs.

    Summertime Saga is barely passing compared to other western games. It trys. But around the time your mentor goes "Hey, I wanna watch you impregnate my wife", plausibility goes out the window. Good art though.

    WEGs are not the western version of VNs. JP has a huge variety of eroge, some of which are VNs and some aren't. Also, most JP VNs aren't eroge.
    JP eroge are better than WEGs for the same reasons JP games in general are better than western games.
    Western VNs specifically are called OELVN (if written in English), and are almost uniformly terrible. There are a few exceptions depending on your tastes (Katawa Shoujo being the most notable OELVN).

    I just genuinely never liked the art in them. Anime/Manga art is easier for artists to do well because it's more abstract. WEGs always seem to insist on hyper-realism instead of cartoon stuff. I would've been way more into them if they'd had art similar to Pixar MILFs, the gyrating hips of some of Disney's 2D-animated movies, or even styles I'd seen on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Even the OP pic is miles better than what most WEGs have, and it's still not great.

    WEGs are minimal vehicles for developers to vicariously live out their erotic fantasies. As such, there is not as much focus on beauty as there is in Japan-produced erotic VNs. It's pretty much the same deal as western porn vs. hentai.

    WEG have 3 major problems:

    (1) They are working from a position of no prior work. It took decades for the Japanese to work out how to make eroge actually good, to develop their own subculture, their own unique and interesting systems and franchises, their own base of talent. Western developers are typically working from a very surface level grasp of prior work at best, and actively ignoring it at worst.

    (2) There is no monetary incentive to make progress in developing the game. Developers are focused on maintaining a constant cash flow. Their ability to build a customer base in the first place is largely down to luck and not necessarily transferable to a new project upon completion.

    (3) All patronage funded WEG eventually get hijacked by the fetishists (the types who go around dropping loads of money on highly specific niche commissions like furgays, incestgays and ntrgays) as they are very vocal and tend to have outsized spending power. Every piece of development work that does happen is hyper focused on providing a fetish related piece of content - a new character with porn and so on. Any patron funded game that allows funders to dictate content creation results in heavily corrupted bloated monstrosities as there is no incentive to focus or edit.
