< report >Lol, those days when I'm still innocent and young~

I'm with #23, my first VN was also Brass Restoration followed by Narcissu , a few PS2 titles like Ar Tonelico II ~Sekai ni Hibiku Shoujo-tachi no Metafalica~ and those with gameplay elements like Galaxy Angel , Eien no Aselia -The Spirit of Eternity Sword- , and then followed by Symphonic Rain.
At this point I wasn't aware of the existence of Eroge. My very first was Princess Waltz and dem it shattered my mind like a microscope glass. it was my first exposure to porn and it was from a 2D character. and to think I played that VN with my sister.
Being raised on a catholic family my Father beat the heck out of me for showing that first H scene with my sister (I never knew) and told me not to do it again.
...so I did it again and searched for more eroge~

< report >Can't remember exactly which one was the first but it's a toss-up between Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, and Narcissu.

Although the one that really sparked my thirst for visual novels was none other than Bible Black.

< report >Lik many other people, my first visual novel was Ace Attorney and my second was DDLC. After that I started playing Clannad but didn't finish it because my laptop broke.
I did continue playing VNs on my DSi after that though. I'm not sure exactly what the order was but I remember playing through Anon's Nice Day, Adagio, Addendum, Kira -Snowdrop-, OMGWTFOTL, The Best Eroge Ever and Ballad of an Evening Butterfly. I also played through most of Ever17 but couldn't play the Coco route because of some bug with the DS port.

< report >The first game i've ever play is Kanojo Step. I'm interested in this VN because i watch japanese youtuber that play this game and at first i thought it was funny. The protagonist has a good comedy relationship especially with ShiinaLast modified on 2021-02-26 at 10:02

< report >Katawa Shoujo back in...2014 I think? I discovered it through someone called Day[9]. He and 2 of his friends had a series on youtube where they play games then discuss them. The game seemed pretty intriguing by the time they finished playing it. When I learned it was free to boot, that's all I needed to hear. I probably would've come to VNs eventually, but I'm glad I discovered them when I did.

< report >Noble works was looking for some porn from old site. Forget its name but one of those old school flash games that were pretty stupid. Found random game not sure what it was vs regular games. That was a few months before I joined this website and decide it peak interest to keep looking for more.

< report >Sharin no Kuni.
The title "Special High Class Individual" sounded really cool.

< report >I think the first VN I read was Immoral Study, many years ago. Not exactly heavy on the plot, that one.

< report >Believe I started Princess Waltz, Shuffle, and Clannad together and prioritized Shuffle and Princess Waltz since they were shorter.

< report >Do you mean the first VN that made us know about the existence of these games or just the first VN we've read? Well anyway, the first VN I read was Narcissu on my tablet. I read it from time to time while I went to school.

< report >My first VN was NinNinDays, which I read in summer 2019.
This lead me into the world of VNs. After that I read NekoPara and kept on reading since then.

< report >My first was the Hirameki (non H) release of Tea Society of a Witch in 2004. I was always sort of fascinated by VN but didn't really get into them until about three or four years ago when I was studying for the JLPT.Last modified on 2021-04-29 at 01:46

< report >I'm pretty sure it was Fate/Stay Night at about 2010. I kind of picked that VN to be my first on a complete whim (with it being 18+ being a factor), but I fell in love by the time I got to the Lancer vs. Archer battle and forgot almost forgot it was an H game before getting to the H part. I might have played Ace Attorney before that, but I'm not 100% sure, and I consider that to be a point and click adventure game rather than a VN anyways.

< report >I think it was Da Capo Plus Communication, using the partial translation patch. Somehow, despite not even being slightly proficient in Japanese yet at the time, I played the ENTIRE GAME even though only three routes were translated in their entirety. Looking back on it now... Why did I do that? I literally could not understand 80% of what was going on in the untranslated routes.

< report >Katawa Shoujo, followed by To Heart 2 and Eroge! in third place. :D All late 2018 or early 2019. Shit, time flies.

DDLC was my actual 'first' buuut, I didn't get into VNs because of it, I was still on the 'this is some weird shit' front at that time, around 2017/18.Last modified on 2021-05-01 at 22:10
