Katawa Shoujo and I loved it. Pretty sure I cried at some points too. Playing that made me more curious about VNs so at my yearly convention I go to I bought Shuffle! Other than that and a few on the app store I haven't played that many but I still would like to play some more, really want Stein;s Gate next xP

Planetarian is very good. It's about a 3 hour read (give or take), and doesn't have any choices in it; it's a short story with pictures and music, and not really a game. But it has a great post-apocalyptic setting, and tells a beautiful (if bittersweet) story.

I haven't gotten around to World End Economica yet, but apparently it was written by the author of Spice and Wolf, so I have high hopes.

Also, if you are looking for good VNs on Steam, check out Analogue: A Hate Story. It plays out a bit like a period-piece murder mystery, but in this case the detective (the player) lives hundreds of years after the events you are investigating--which softens the blow of the tragic story, and allows for the possibility of a somewhat happy ending.

Thanks, appreciate it.

*remembers*

My first taste of VN-style game play came from the date segments in Thousand Arms (PS1) back in 2000. After that, there followed ... a ton of eroge, since that was 99% of what was translated in those days (e.g. genre classics like Seasons of the Sakura and True Love '95). Then, I imported the first Sakura Taisen for my Dreamcast, and goodness knows how many VN-style games I have played since then. Currently looking forward to Clannad, Grisaia, and But I Love You, all of which I have backed on Kickstarter.

My first ever I think was Season of the Sakura in the late 90's. It may have been one of the others that were available in English back then as well though, like Nocturnal Illusions or Runaway City.

Katawa Shoujo was my first. Left my speechless with such great writing and the characters were amazing as well.It had some deep feels for me and it was my gateway VN. So then I moved on after 100% to Clannad after watching the gut wrenching feels-fest anime. The feels in Clannad reduced me to blob of tears and mucus. Recently I just finished Grisia no kajitsu. It was nice and short and it also just finished a kickstarter to get a prequel and sequel. And then I played G-Senjou Maou which is my 2cd fav after KS, solely because of the music. Overall im happy with my select few and plan to get Steins:Gate and Little Busters. Also 9 doors 9 persons 9 hours for DS and all Phoenix Wright to the DS versions. I would recommend to ppl G-sen jou maou and Katawa Shoujo

I would love to hear anymore suggestions on what to seek out,

idk but this is the elements

ElementsEdit
Aside from the visual novel layout of the game, Oreimo Portable also includes other elements which players will encounter in the middle of the game.

Two-shot Events are considered as mini-games in the middle of conversations with other characters (usually those who will end up with the player). This event is usually denoted by the words "Two shot start" in the middle of the screen. The player is tasked to decide on his/her reaction to the incoming pieces of dialogue the other character will say to the player: either "to reply" or "stay quiet".

When the player chooses correctly, the other character's opinion of the player will improve and it will contribute to the advancement of the desired story route later on. Otherwise, the player will receive an "emergency evasion" option; if the player fails to use this last resort, the story will finish at a bad end.

The game also has the O.R.E. System. Considered as an alternate to the traditional "multiple choice" gameplay in visual novels, this system allows the player to acquire special items called "Records". These Records can be used to manipulate the plot in a different way decision points advance the plot within the game.
