ClannadReread: 1. My first VN and it'll forever be 10/10 for me, when I first watched the Anime it killed me and led to me seeking out all of Key's other works and becoming enlightened to the power that Nakige holds.
Clannad - Hikari Mimamoru Sakamichi deReread: 1. Not the best honestly, some of the side stories are good (Akio's is the best) but others are pretty dull, and there's no way to go through them fast so it drags a lot. Still, it's Clannad so it's good.
Dies iraeI wasn't that into this at the start but as the routes went on, whilst I couldn't pin down why, I just became more and more invested in the story and the Chuuni events that were happening until I was having a blast. Too bad probably no other entries in the series will ever get translated.
Doki Doki Literature Club!Not part of the anti-DDLC team but the VN SOL parts at the start were really boring and I felt no attachment to the characters, so how does this still have an active fanbase that loves them...
Ever17 -The Out of Infinity-Heavy disappointment, sure the true route's great and there's occasionally cool stuff, but the path to it is just generic boring slice of life dating sim stuff, where is the tension? Just read 999 and Root Double instead, this is only worth it for Remember11, should have been left in the past.
The Muv-Luv Extra/Unlimited of the Infinity Series
Fata morgana no YakataTop tier, I was loving it within an hour, and it continued to get better and better as more was revealed and the plot became clearer. OST's one of my favourites and the unique art-style makes it a delight to read.
Fata morgana no Yakata -Another Episodes-Kind of a disappointment coming off the original, the expanded prequel was nice, but a lot of it was in the original VN so it wasn't necessary. Side stories were cool though.
Fate/ExtellaI barely paid attention to the plot and just mindlessly played the gameplay as I found it pretty fun.
Fate/Extella LinkI paid even less attention to the plot, as there basically isn't one, why is this still on VNDB lol.
Fate/ExtraRequires an emulator with skipping and save states to make it not an absolute drag, the actual plot is fairly interesting however.
Fate/Hollow AtaraxiaNot as good as F/SN but I'm a fan of SOL so I had a fun time, the Bazett/Avenger stuff is very good too.
Fate/Stay NightA classic, I was blown away by the fact that a VN could have some of the most hype fight scenes I've ever seen, and as such was converted to NVL superiority. I've since become a Nasuverse fanboy and consumed everything I could, but the original F/SN VN is still my favourite. UBW > HF > Fate
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni KaiAmazing, I was complete in-tune with what Ryukishi was going for from arc 6 onwards and loved every second of those arcs, it got better and better and ended exactly how I hoped. 8 > 7 > 6 > 3 > 1 > 5 > 4 > 2
Infinity cure.Izumi cure is pretty crazy which is nice, Yuka cure is unnecessary.
IslandDisappointing, it started off really well, though some routes weren't the best, Winter was a great arc that I really enjoyed, but then the ending just let me down hard. I preferred the anime's ending (even if the overall product was worse)
