i think visual novels should have their own link under the games section - at the moment, it's like a secret subsection, which only a few lucky people stumble upon by chance every once in a while....

Totally, for years i dident know what Visual Novels where and yet i did (its complicated i kept on seeing pictures of the same graphics of Visual Novels everywhere) but i couldent look them up cause i dident know the proper name for them i even ASKED people what they was but the ignored me. =_=

Also maybe if they was more famous more would get licensed and then people will be able to play the game (and also people might stop complaining about licenses to when the truth is its a life saver.)

me too, for a long while I just assumed from random screenshots that these games were just thinly disguised hentai so I didn't bother investigating any further....

anyway, 6 votes for a menu link so far - not much but it's a start!

Yes! ^_^

I've been playing H-games for 10 years but it's still not that popular. I think it's because only a few knows about this kind of games. It's not just the H materials that make it very good but also the story and plot. If it's really good they even make an anime adaption of it ^_^

No, it's less popular.. to make it worse, it's mostly Japanese.. fan-made translation are great, but it's only a few and mostly popular games. If i wanted to understand the story, i had to use tool like AGTH with translation tools, and the translation is not really good, but at least a understand a bit >_>

Most of the VN have H-scenes, yes >_> but the story is great Even some great anime is adapted from Visual Novel, like Fate/Stay Night, Higurashi, Clannad and much much more ^^

P.S. I'd rather have this under games category, but the chances is slim.. not much people playing VN as much as other games >_>

Lucky D:

I dont care weather the translations are good or not... i always has trouble setting visual novels and stuff related to it up... the only ones i can play (luckily.. even then..) is doujinshi ones which are translated... direct... and easy to set up.

Heck i came to a point where im willing to play them in japanese.

The reason why you cannot get them is because people keep buying counter fit copys..

Well, I don't really think that that will happen, but I guess maybe. But really, visual novels are a minority. Not too many people know about it, if you compare it to say, Wii, or XBOX, or PS(1,2,3,P). If you want a VN section, you could talk to a Moderator I guess.

Most people on CR probably don't know about VNs... but if there was a link then more people would find out about them. o_O They're probably a minority because there aren't many in English so most people wouldn't be able to play them.

Lol~ Yeh, that'd be the problem. And then we'd have like, a million different post on the wall saying "When will <insert name of game here> be translated??".
