< report >So, there are a lot of gacha and rhythm games in the DB. Many of these do have visual novel aspects and are very story-based as the rules require, but what exactly counts as being a visual novel?

Would things like "Tokyo 7th Sisters" or "IDOLiSH7", two games with not only gacha and rhythm-game aspects but also large portions of visual novel material, be added?

< report >Fuck knows, truly. Gatcha is a plague and most of us mods are not really willing to get into that swamp to check if they qualify. Ezezin checked one of them, namely HEAVEN BURNS RED, and thought it qualifies, but in other cases we are just willing to let them stay until someone reports them.

< report >Is it the same for rhythm games with visual novel aspects?

< report >Never encountered much of those. One of the Persona games is a rhythm game (Persona 4 Dancing All Night), but most of it is a visual novel, so it's staying. You cannot make a blanket check on the genre. Some of the rhythm games might qualify, others might not. Hard to say without specifically checking.

< report >I see, should a rhythm game tag be added? I'm unable to suggest one right now, but would it help?
