Im making a thread about VNs because there isnt one on the catalogue and i wanna talk about my experience. I just finished danganronpa 2, which im not certain counts as a VN or if it's a point and click murder mystery social deduction game, and i think im pretty confident to say that it presents a pretty interesting moral dilemma. On one hand, the hope faction is pretty clearly a technocratic organization who obsesses over "Ultimates", or people who possess immense talent in a particular field or study, for example the world's best scientist, or the world's best doctor. It is revealed in the story of goodbye despair that before despair took over, hope's peak academy created a method of artificially forcing someone to become extremely talented, which dialectically had the potential to equalize mankind and develop the talents of anyone, which would make the idea of meritocracy, or ruling over others due to better talents or knowledge, completely obsolete. Despair on the other hand spawned as a result of the mass movement of reserve students, malcontents who became disaffected with the idea that people with talent mattered more than the rest, since hope's peak academy was formed to research peoples' talents and how to cultivate them.
I think it would be pretty easy to side with the latter out of frustration, especially if you're talentless like i am, but i think the idea that talent could be forcibly cultivated out of someone who never realized it before would be the "productive forces" argument. Not to mention that junko destroyed civilization, which is dialectically bad.
Your turn to die is a great game too, very similar to danganronpa on a surface level, i finished it a while ago and im glad i played it. Free btw. Anyone got visual novel recommendations? I need a weeb fix.

Danganronpa series is very gud. Play Danganronpa Another Episode and watch Danganronpa 3 (in that order) before moving on to Danganronpa V3, however.
>Anyone got visual novel recommendations? I need a weeb fix.
I have to shill Steins;Gate because I'm a huge fan. If you didn't play it (or didn't watch the anime adaptation), just be advised it starts slow, especially for the original VN. It's an intriguing story about time travel. It's very gud too, but the true ending is difficult to find without a guide. Characters don't have much development, but they're easily likeable if you get into it. Also, I fucking adore picrel
I can't say much about the other franchises that are part of the Science Adventure Series (Chaos;Head, Robotics;Notes and so on) because I didn't play them at the moment.
The Ace Attorney games are great too, gameplay is about exposing the contradictions in your opponents' arguments, which is pretty dialectical, and the series influenced Danganronpa to an extent.
As far as other VNs go, I have a bunch in my library but I didn't start the vast majority of them, so that's all the recs I've got. Pretty normie stuff, I have to admit -_-

One thing i should mention about your turn to die is that it kind of has dwarf fortress syndrome as it is developed by a single person. Its not finished but id say at least half of the story has been completed and is playable. The art is very cool, traumacore even, which is why i screenshotted it several times.

Apparently, it's getting a Steam release soon. Would you recommend waiting for it or trying it out right now?

Steam page just says it releases this year without a specific date:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/2067780/Your_Turn_To_Die_Death_Game_By_Majority/
But who knows, there might be issues and they might report it to next year.

Agreed. He's pretty memorable because of that I would add. That and his insane luck

I did as you asked and am playing dr: another episode and it's… a lot like dead space in gameplay terms. Or RE4. My dead space instincts are serving me really well. It's pretty fun but i dont think i can set it to subbed. It's a good dub but still.

Does anyone know any good romace VNs/dating sims? Pretty much everything I found for male audience was like a garbage harem anime. All the decent ones are otomes. I am willing to accept garbage if it is femdom themed though.

Oh hey, thats by the same woman who made don't take it personally, babe, it just ain't your story and Ladykiller in a Bind. Those two were delightful, the former has some interesting twists in the plot, dealing with ideas about march technology and privacy, while the latter is the best depiction of BDSM I experienced in any medium.

i finally finished the game after about a full 24 hours of gameplay. i'll be honest, it certainly was long enough to be worth playing, although with some caveats
my thoughts: the game is a masterpiece, but a disjointed one. the main character, komaru, is a bit of a moeblob, a stereotypical anime schoolgirl and for the first three quarters of the story, she's just… boring. it wasnt until the reveal that her parents were shown to be murdered by the antagonist and she seriously considered blowing up all the children in towa city that she had any form of character. i was kind of hoping there'd be two endings, one which has you succeed junko and the other which has the stereotypical happy ending. with how many times i chose the "bad ending" up until that point, it was so disappointing to not see it at least shown in more detail after the final battle, like if you just give in completely and become evil. that would've been so cool
the cutscenes are great, as usual for danganronpa. i hate to say that seeing people get extravagantly executed is one of the most fun part of the series, but it's kinda true. there's even scenes which are entirely animated like an anime and those really spice up the somewhat dated 3d graphics of everything else, although every danganronpa game ive played so far has the problem of having kinda dated graphics in normal gameplay, which obviously can be forgiven.
another point, i don't know what was lost in translation because this was the only exclusively dubbed version i've played, but they do speak awkwardly at points. talking about hope and despair, they obviously talk about it as some kind of philosophical concepts, but then there's also points where they couldve said "hopeless" instead of "despaired", or "desparate", or "optimistic" or "hopeful" instead of talking about hope itself. i think this is mostly just a result of translation, however, because it's a recurring thing in all the games.
in terms of the tone, it was hard to take the game seriously until it started getting serious and the writers started figuring out what they were going for. i think in terms of tone, DR 1 is still the best in terms of believability. it had obvious engine limitations and was a closed setting, so it had to rely on good writing and mystery to carry itself, though this reliance was still spiced with cool executions. i think the later games had trouble with some kind of identity crisis, and this one seems to have that problem. it really felt like a dead space or RE4 clone at times, not that it's a bad thing.
