Visual Novels Everybody Should Play

Visual Novels Everybody Should Play

There are people that are addicted to video games. They want to be the ones controlling the happenings on the field, be the plot twisters, decide what and when to do the unpredictable thing, and simply play with the virtual reality. On the other hand, we have people that simply want to sit back, make themselves a big bowl of popcorn with a warm tea and relax as somebody already wrote the story for them. They want to enjoy the scenes of the movie and be amazed by the details, actors, real-life things overall. But what happens when you get stuck in the middle between these two?

Yea, you can do both things to satisfy your needs, but we have a better idea. Have you ever heard of Visual Novels?

If you haven’t you are missing out on something really interesting. A visual novel is something between a video game and written literature, with pictures all over the place. In most of the cases, a sprite is given to one main character which sticks out of the background with text boxes over his head and the head of other participants of the story. You can click on them to reveal the text they say, and you can determine the flow of the dialogue as with different path chosen, the characters say different things. If you are up for relaxed, mouse clicking games, Centurion Slots might be one of your favourites.

Now, let’s see which are the finest visual novels you can play.

 

The Ace Attorney Series

An engaging visual novel with a fine inviting plot, well translated into several languages, characters that simply love colours and one of the easiest to find, you should try The Ace Attorney Series. It is available on Nintendo portables, PC, Wii and iOS and is one of the most popular Visual Novels that can be found at the moment.

You are playing several members of the justice system where you investigate cases in pursuit of the truth. It is relatively easy to play and with the good and understandable English, it’s the perfect place to start your friendship with the visual novels.

 

Matches and Matrimony

Our second choice of Visual Novel is Matches and Matrimony, and it’s available for PC only.

You will be surprised by how realistic the dialogues are and you may get lost in the virtual world for a moment.

 

999 – 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

Although visual novels are saying they are offering a gameplay, they are here to be played, and they are somehow connected to games, it’s rarely the case. This is where 999 comes to rescue and kills all those talks, with being the visual novel that offers one of the most versatile paths and options to choose from. Check it out!
