In Yume Miru Kusuri there is one quote, that comes from the erogeplaying gay character Tsubaki, Hirofumi: "The first eroge that you play is as important as your first time having sex!" (not accurately quoted)

I have a few interesting questions:

Which was your first eroge and what have you taken from it?
How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?
Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?
Did it help building your character/persona?

Fire away, fellow perverts!

Osananajimi wa Daitouryou ~My Girlfriend is the President.~ Fandisc was my first visual novel (yes the fandisc sue me)
I remember I didn't like the first Eru scene when I read it first time so I dropped the whole game (I read the fandisc again after playing the main game).
Funny story about that is that I remember it well because after closing the game, I opened up my email and I had gotten my university offer.
I reckon that it wasn't the fandisc but the original game Osananajimi wa Daitouryou: My Girlfriend is the President. that really shaped my tastes in eroge (mainly in h-scene quantity, length and content).

Ring Out!!
It was the first porn I've ever seen. I started playing it thinking it's just an animu game.
A girl was sold into slavery because of the debts of her parents, and her first real hentai scene was with a fat dude. That was probably the beginning of all my fetishes.

How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?
I wanted to see more naked animu girls. Especially after I saw some 3D ones a few years later, I went back to eroge and stayed there.

Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?
How to interact with females.
Since I started to act like an eroge protagonist in real life, I suddenly got friends and girls are now interested in me because I treat them like they want to be treated. (Not that I would leave my waifus for 3DPDs, mind you!)

Did it help to build your character/persona?
Everything I am today I am thanks to eroge.

Which was your first eroge and what have you taken from it?

I'm pretty sure it was Clannad, about 10 years ago. I guess you might not really consider it an eroge as I saw it more of a dating sim. At the time, I was in my mid teens and desperately needed the escapism. Being presented with this new, beautiful world, where every line seemed to resonate with me somehow - it felt magical.

As for eroge, I believe it was Tsukihime around the same time. Due to the nature of the content and my own RL problems at the time, I felt deeply immersed into the game as if I were losing my own mind. I was literally going crazy and perhaps I was not too far from actually murdering someone...just kidding.

How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?

They were both experiences I vividly remember to this day. I believe I was lucky to start off with these two, since you can only have very few "first experiences".

Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?

Anything that has to do with people. I remember that I'd be disappointed when the characters in games would be so beautiful in contrast to how plain and boring people were in real life.

Did it help building your character/persona?

I think it definitely helped me become a person who likes to look a bit deeper into things, while it might have twisted my psyche somewhat as a result. Eroge gave me a warped, idealized vision of romance that just didn't apply to reality, which lead to a lot of heartache. However, I don't play eroge because I don't have waifus IRL, but because normies suck.Last modified on 2019-02-18 at 18:01

first eroge?
-It was honey pick me or something/cheating house wives combo pack. I was trying to download illegal because I had no idea where to find or buy at time. I did everything wrong and couldn't get anything to work. I caved in my personal belief and bought this combo saw on amazon. It was just ok.

I more credit artificial academy 2 to getting me into eroge. Loved game and wanted more, the obvious downside was it has no story or plot line. But I learn about LE, changing region and found other websites in process including this one to find more about VN. Noble works was first translated and I loved it, was pretty close to what I was looking for. Josou Sanmyaku was first untranslated that desperately wanted to play but couldn't. Eventual found vnr/agth and kept moving forward.

What I took from it
-was that there was other forms of porn out there that was vastly more interesting to me.

Ii kept my interest is simple
-as long as I have a healthy libido its not going to go away. I use eroge more than regular porn.

I don't think I learned anything specific only to eroge but I became vastly more tech savvy then I thought I would with comp. Still very much useless compare to avg people in these communities.

Did it help build chara/persona?

-No not really. I credit my chara obviously to family. Outside of them I would say cartoons and video games had a bigger role in non traditional way. Cartoons showed a fun new exciting world don't see irl but help inspire to want to bring excitement/creativity and just fun in every day life when I can. Video games brought a more competitive side of me. I had very few things I was good at, video games was one of them I could excel at. It was just practice and repetition. Some thing easily applied to most things in life to get ahead. When seeing work pay off with actual results it was easy to do same with school or sports. Growing up both which I wasn't good at one time.Last modified on 2019-02-18 at 19:57

Which was your first eroge and what have you taken from it?
Fate. What I took away from it? A love for visual novels and saber.

How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?
How could it not keep me interested? This is the best medium to tell a story - it has everything, art, sound, voice, gameplay(if needed), choices, story, character, etc. There are good and bad vn's, but when they are good they are really really good. And when they are bad, well, at least you can still masturbate to it(speaking from the male perspective).

Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?
A lot of things can be learned from an eroge. But then you can learn that from reading a good book as well. So, no, I have not learned anything that I could not have learned elsewhere. But it has had siginificant development to my psychology as a human being so I think its an important medium.

Did it help building your character/persona?
yes. It made me more weird and unsociable. I guess I have the personality of an addict :D It gave me a sense of purpose early in life, it gave me friends and communities who enjoy the same thing (a sense of identity early on). Because vn's are so unknown to most people, it also made me think from the perspective of an outsider. I see people who post all the hateful shit about eroge and anime, and it just makes me mad. Human society has the weirdest priorities. I should note that, at this point in my life, I have lost all that. Friends I knew from VN days are gone, communities are gone (the ones I knew and the ones I started). I feel lonely now. I don't even play many visual novels these days. Bad times for me. Youth was simplier.Last modified on 2019-08-23 at 15:56

Which was your first eroge and what have you taken from it?
Funnily enough my first VN was YMK and it really shaped my liking of the medium. My second VN was Hinatabokko. As much as I enjoyed the second, I can't help but think that if that one was my first one, I wouldn't appreciate VN as much as I do. I still would enjoy it but less.

How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?
Few reasons, the biggest one is the story, if any of the routes were told in any other medium (series, movies, books), I felt that they wouldn't be able to show as much in other medium (no talking about the H-scenes).

Another one was that you could make your choices, when I was small I read few books of choose your own adventure, which I loved that autonomy and was something that I was missing that feature in any medium, seeing it in a story not aimed a children was great.

Also the art, the music, the voices was an incredible experience for me, the only downside I had is that VN can be too long, but even then worth it.

Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?
Not really, maybe there are things that I was aware thanks to seeing in the medium first, but I could have easily learned from other sources.

Did it help building your character/persona?
No as far as I know

Which was your first eroge and what have you taken from it?
My first eroge was Tokimeki Check In. Wasn't my first VN but I was aware of the existence of eroge and decided to try that one out upon discovering there were ones available in English. It kind of reminded me of playing the choose your own adventure books like Endless Quest and Lone Wolf that I enjoyed growing up.

How did it manage to keep you interested in the genre?
The opportunity to enjoy story diversity with routes the coupled with a genre that could blend good artwork, writing and voice work.

Have you learned anything specific from eroge which you can't learn elsewhere?
Given how little was available in English at the time I ended up learning enough Japanese to get by for reading so I could play unlocalized games.

Did it help building your character/persona?
A little I guess. I got a little more analytical about the things I enjoy after I started reviewing eroge I played and seeing some people I know go from liking something to hating it like it killed their parents thanks to overanalyzing taught me not to be too nitpicky.

1. True Love (1995).
2. well I remember fapping to nearly everyone of them maybe that's why.
3. not from True Love specifically. though MLA told me in the most painful way possible that just because you can do X doesn't mean you should.
4. oh yes definitely and dare I say much more so than normie schooling. Saya broke me. also the aforementioned MLA.Last modified on 2019-08-24 at 07:09

1. Kana, little sister, was looking for porn, ended up reading all night. I got my love for vns from it, I've never read or watched anything more engrossing than vns.
2. I wanted more good stories, simple as that.
3. Not really honestly, made me appreciate reading in general more and taught me that reading doesn't have to be boring which was most of school for me.
4. It gave me friendship, through fate/stay night I got two good friends irl and one online. One of my classmated mentioned it once out of the blue, so I made friends with him and his brother. Still friends to this day. So I'd say vns gave me a shitton of good stuff. Wouldn't trade it for the life of me.Last modified on 2019-08-24 at 12:11
