I like most of these recommendations :D. I really hope they port VC 2 at some point. One of my fave games of all time. Edit: And yeah, love all Nihon Falcom games. Haven't touched cold steel yet, but I grew up with Ys and found Trails games later on, Good Stuff!

Can anyone tell me what are visual novel games?

Ah ok, thank you.

Visual novels are exactly how they sound. They have minimal gameplay in exchange for having more story

Hey, my grandma is really into those match 3+ phone games. And she was always one for a good date. Got her Huniepop. She hasn't spoken to me since then, but I assume she's just really into it. Best $10 ever

Hah, just randomly found Valkyria Chronicles in my Steam library. Seeing this recommendation, I think I'll give it a go.

I'm actually surprised that you have good taste in video games. Good list. Also, Ys 8 is a fucking masterpiece, then again I got it for the PS4 so I have no idea what issues PC players had.

I really, really liked 999, but VLR was kind of disappointing because I felt like its shift to the "larger than life" type of story wasn't good for this particular series - in my opinion it worked best as the smaller scale sci-fi story. On the other hand, I binge played all 4 Danganronpa games in a span of 3 weeks and was amazed that any franchise could be so exciting for me to explore, so... at the end, maybe Zero Escape franchise was just not for me while Danganronpa was. (but seriously if you like 999 play Danganronpa, and if you like Danganronpa play 999, you won't regret it)

Dude I can't believe you didn't recommend any touhou games, they are on steam now if you didn't know at least you should have recommended the fighting games
Carol Belle (1 month ago)
Just a quick comment about the premise of the first game mentioned. There's a Japanese CG animated movie called Oblivion Island that has a similar story - specifically about the place where lost and forgotten things go. I haven't figured out if this is a traditional legend or myth that Japanese parents tell their kids or not.

What about King Exit? What are your view on it? It is a very well done game to me.

You have no idea how happy it makes me to see Trails of Cold Steel (all the Nihon Falcom games really) get the justly due respect it deserves. It's my favorite JRPG, the entire Trails series from Sky, Crossbell, and of course Cold Steel. If anyone hasn't played it or thought about it but still have reservations, trust me, everything about it is amazing and you'll get sucked in with 100+ hrs before you know it. Please play it if you love JRPGs, definitely worth the number one spot.

Zero escape is the shit. Also a royal pain if you don't know what clues you're looking for. But still, one of my favorite games when I got it for ds.

Danganronpa should have been at the top instead of getting a quirky side joke...although thats just my opinion...and it was a funny joke XD

Not sure if this would count as anime but the style is pretty similar, Va-11 Hall-a is a pretty neat cyberpunk VN with some pretty fun “bartending mechanics” and AN AMAZING SOUNDTRACK HOLY SHIT.
Tom Maverick (2 months ago)
Trails in the sky trilogy is even better than cold steel.
Ruri Rotaru (2 months ago)
Good list I can't argue with really any of it the tales game blew me away though I have to admit the # 1 slot is well deserved for the trails games.
no VR Kanojo ? fuck you

Huniepop is honestly the best match three game I have ever played.

Can't agree enough on your number one choice. SPOILER ALERT for those who haven't watched the video. I recently played both Cold Steel 1 and Cold Steel 2 once it was released on Steam and although I had my problems with the way CS2 handled it's plot armor boss encounters, I enjoyed the hell out its story and world. I literally spoke to every single NPC in the first game every single time I had an update and was thoroughly enthralled in their antics and stories. The excessively amorous couple in Trista, Vivi and Linde 's funny pranks, and the Laura fan club from Legram. Also Towa is best Waifu, fucking fight me!

ACE Academy is a really fun VN imo too. It's combat system (if you can even call it that), well let's say the game would lose absolutely nothing if it didn't had it, but it has great humor and lovely characters. Also Shadowverse is a card game (somewhat similar to hearthstone), which I can recommend too. Especially because it gives more free packs than any other f2p title i know of.

Ni No Kuni II - FALSE. The animator who worked on Ni No Kuni II is a FORMER employee of Studio Ghibli. To my knowledge, Studio Ghibli itself didn't have anything to do with the second title.

Corpse Party is great, it really fucked me up for a few days. Great recommendations I just bought Nonary games, will play it soon. And also, props for the Trails in the Cold Steel, it's awesome.

Everlasting summer is a very good visual novel. I played all the paths and i love it. And extra points: its free.

I'm still pissed that Valkyria Chronicles on the PC basically outsold all of the consoles combined... And they aren't releasing Valkyria Chronicles 4 to the PC. Because they're stupid. Japanese businessmen are stupid.

I'm must say I'm disappointed you recomended Higurashi over the Umineko series since it doesn't have as much love as Rika and the girls have (Because of the shit anime adaptation) but I'm nitpicking. All love for the When They Cry series get all the love from me.
Duc Huy Ly (3 months ago)
I recommend To the moon and its sequel Finding Paradise 10/10

Lets be honest, we all went to HuniePop with a "I am never speaking to anyone about this" and finished the game with a "Holy Shit, that was great". Also, Hunie Pop 2 was confirmed so thats even more glory to this "series" (I mean, its the third Hunie game so its kinda becoming a series). Also, I agree, Kyu will always be best girl.
moldpiss (3 months ago)
Recommends Higurashi. No mention of Umineko (ie the greatest VN of all time). I mean the steam sprites are dogshit, but it still deserves a mention since you can mod them out. Umineko turned me from an atheist into a semi-christian like 2 years ago, and that still hasn't changed to this day. Basically just go read Umineko.

ps. don't do like me, and play tales of symphonia on the hardest difficulty. Why? Because I hate that game now, since I can't even beat the tutorial XD
Im amazed that there was no Neptune series in there somewhere How can you not include a game that keeps itself alive only because of its not-even-that-fanservicy fanservice and because it attracts a lot of grinders
