< report >Hi. KEVINNGW808 here. This time, I will make weekly polls.
These polls act as surveys. So please vote what your favorites.
We can discuss together in comment if you have anything in mind.

So, lets start with first poll survey, favorite -ges genre.
There are lots of genres in Visual Novel. Now I want you to choose what's your favorite.

Didn't know these words? Here: link

Edit: There are lots of -ges that I don't know. You can comment what your favorite genres if you pick none of those options.Last modified on 2022-05-24 at 16:16

< report >kusoge lol.

I mean, I don't really enjoy playing it, but reading about them is fun. Shitting on them in general is fun.

< report >There is no clear definition for kamige, so when people said this vn is kamige doesn't mean that this vn will be kamige for me, moreover I didn't find clear differences between plotge and chuunige because sometime chuunige have complex setting
Didn't eroge and nukige is same as genre? I see moege and charage as same game

Follow your own advice because some of those aren't genres.

< report >This is weirdly worded. Moege is what I would pick, but many Moege are also eroge. Is the moege option specifically just for only All-Ages releases since eroge is a separate option? Or do I hit both moege and eroge since I don't like moege that have no h-scenes?Last modified on 2022-05-24 at 23:37

< report >Since when a moege can't be an eroge? I just don't understand people who think that genres are exclusive to each other. Most moege are charage. And nothing prevents one from being a nukige too, and have SF in it, etc.

< report >@6 Either both. If you like moege or eroge, why can't just pick both? It doesn't do anything about All-ages or H-Patch.

< report >#8 Kind of a hostile answer, don't you think? I guess I will pick both then. Do you really think it was that weird of a question? If you have moege and eroge as separate entries, it implies that they are separate things. I don't know what definition of eroge you are using, but normally, a moege with H-scenes is also considered an eroge. Having them as separate options implies that the moege does not have h-scenes in it, hence my questions in the earlier post.

< report >Why do folks keep moving the goalposts? It's all eroge. Kamige vs kusoge is a subjective judgment of quality, nukige is just strong eroge that can overlap with other genres. This thread is stupid.

< report >A lot of redundancies in the options. All lolige are kamige and all chuunige are kusoge for example.

< report >Since when a kamige is a genre lol. Why there's an option for "eroge" as well. Every 18+ games are eroges -_______-Last modified on 2022-05-25 at 03:32

< report >When you troll for as many years as I have, it becomes a part of you and the line between "serious" and "joke" is faint, nigh non-existent. You have trolled this cave longer than I, so perchance your next poll will be more entertaining.

< report >All -ge are subgenres of charage since in all of them the characters are the most important and focus of the plot. The are couple of weird indie eolvns where characters are not important or even absent - but it's more exception than rule.

< report >VNs are generally certainly more character-focused, but I think people just voted on "plotge" and "charage" out of some dumb western perceived literary obligation. Character and plot are not genres, and while some may say that genre fiction is more plot-focused, genre is more like flavor that can be applied to anything. As such, "charage" and "plotge" are no more meaningful than "eroge" or "kamige".

< report >Favorite kusoge does sound like a fun thread with a whole plethora of options. Also helps give the community a general idea of the VNs to avoid as well as long as it doesn't devolve into completely rampant shitposting. Obviously there is some subjectivity involved when discussing kusoge but there is probably some general consensus we can all agree on in that regard. Would be fun to see.Last modified on 2022-05-25 at 21:42
