I absolutely love it! Especially when it's as heart-breaking and miserable as your pic, op.
I love it, especially when the game characters are chill with the player, and seperate him from the character he's playing. It's actually what sold me on tearaway when I got my vita.
Anyone got that one clip of a VN where
a character goes yandere when the player, and not MC, won't accept her feelings? She crashes the game by forcing a bad end, and then when it restarts she's made some changes. I remember something about her "calling god" before the wallbreaking twist happened
>It's not a bug, it's a feature
>You, the player, have to fight the character you've been playing as in the final battle
It was a fun game. Let's hope they do that planned sequel eventually.
It's not that you won't accept her feelings its that after completing her route
you can choose to romance another girl in the game. She realises she's in a VN though and starting a new game don't affect her memory or anything so she pretty much goes insane trying to stop you from not being hers.
>"I had to sit there as the man I loved put his mouth on another girl's vagina and suck out another man's semen"
It doesn't open up new routes, at least not in the demo, but you should still check out Undertale. The less you know, the better.
I already played that too.
That fucking flower.
What about games where characters remember your previous playthroughs? That's what i wanted to ask but i phrased it wrong i think.
Not even the best example of wall breaking from the game OP.
The part where Cass gets pissed that you the player keep picking dialogue options that you find funny was hilarious.
Near the end of No More Heroes the fourth wall ceases to exist.
It's a pretty unused thing. I think Irisu Syndrome might have it, never played it. Stanley Parable has some of that too, but its entire shtick is being meta, and there isn't too much meat on its bones. Other than that, you'll just have to look at indie games and RPGmaker stuff.
Does it count if the main character is the only one who remembers the time loop? Because Kagetsu Tohya was all about puzzling your way through a time loop.
Hollow Ataraxia also had a time loop plot with two characters remembering every loop, but those weren't the MC.
>Most good VNs got ported from PC to consoles, dumbass.
It was other way around since Infinity series
>Plus, some of the best VNs aren't even translated nowadays.
Good ones rarely got translated even before, most of time it were a popular/fanservice ones

>get to a really long elevator sequence

>naturally, I do the only thing a person who plays video games would do, I start spinning the main character frantically while waiting

Rewrite does it pretty tastefully.
Actually, most Keyshit does it, but Rewrite's final routes are actually HYPE as fuck.
The Infinity series is far from being the pinnacle of the genre, man.
During the final boss' first form in Final Fantasy IV, when Zeromus knocks out the whole party and all hope is lost, he stops to say that they'll fall into the darkness and shit.
Right after that, he looks at the screen and says that you will also fall into the darkness. Gave the idea that he was speaking directly to the player.
I have the strangest relationship of love/hate with rewrite. I love the setting and the characters (I still believe every girl is best girl) but it always had incredibly bad pacing issues.
The two secret routes are amazing and I cry every time I see the ending.
I thought the pacing was fine, but some routes were incredibly weaker than others. Akane's and Kotori's are incredible, but everything else is just either incredibly jarring and conflictive or just...boring.
Which is a shame, because everything else about it is excellent.
>Akane's and Kotori's are incredible
Maybe because they with moon/terra were written by same author?
Romeo Tanaka just like Maeda and few others gooks will always deliver something good
