Top 10 Best Visual Novels
The Top Ten
Easily the best product of entertainment. It could definitely rival a console game, this is a must-see experience.
This game is not really famous. but trust me, this is really good! You must play it if you love Visual Novel game!
The greatest masterpiece of all time
Also my favourite anime
There are three paths to choose from: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. I think regardless of what path you take, they will all tell awesome stories for sure. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This game has it all. Emotion, action, suspense you name it, this game has it.
Fate is love, Fate is life!
It's the best VN I ever played
Best thing ever
Awesome thrill ride
Great story, great characters and overall...just GREAT!
You'll really get the feels in this one.
A TREMENDOUS story with excellent characters and life-long lessons. What's not to love?
The Ace Attorney series is the GOAT - MilesRS777
Phoenix Wright is AWESOME
Why is it not at #1?
The only reason I searched for this kind of list was to see Danganronpa games. I didn't like the first one much but this is awesome. Murder mysteries, backstories, funny and sad moments... Just play it! - Tuana123
I personally prefer the second to the first
Probably the best thing I've ever played in a while.
True that the second is better than the first even if I think it is equal to Danganronpa v3
And Nagito Komaeda, Gundham Tanaka and Izuru Kamukura are just best characters ever (with Kokichi Oma from Danganronpa v3)
For a free game, this is one hell of a masterpiece. Great well written stories, awesome art, and a sound track to match.
Best game. Very emotional. Really want another game made by 4 leaf studios
Such a great game! Each girls story is nice and charming!
Great story, hits you right in the feels and goes after a topic most VN's don't. AND FREE. Mad props. Fantastic game.
Stop reading this right now and play it if you haven't. It's free, and it's best to go in as blind as possible. - Atham
An amazing game that belies its depth by tricking the player with surface-level tropes and cliches.
Beautiful and creep while maintaining a cutesy feeling of hot girls but is secretly a horror game. Fun!
Absolutely beautiful. While it is a little deceiving, it's worth its honestly short play time. It hits, and it hits hard. You're thrown through a disturbing roller coaster, and left with Monika's "Your Reality" playing as the credits roll, giving this game a much more sad feel. It's something I'd recommend to (almost) everyone
999 is a masterpiece, plain and simple. It is so mind bendingly good that it honestly invalidates the existence of its own sequels, neither of which are nearly as good. Virtue's Last Reward feels somewhat bloated and lifeless at times, and Zero Time Dilemma just isn't as tight and engaging an experience. Striking the perfect balance between escape room puzzles and gameplay, 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors is an enigmatic, engrossing game that immediately captivates you and doesn't let go until you've seen the true ending through to the end. It explores fascinating concepts regarding the nature of human consciousness, and the characters manage to keep its more esoteric and abstract ideas grounded in solid, relatable reality. Near perfect if you ask me.
The game takes stereotypical-looking characters and subverts them and morphs them into new subtypes.
Includes both '999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors' and 'Virtue's Last Reward'. I didn't know if both should have been entered separately as they are both in the same series
Awesome series that deserves much more recognition. If you have a DS or 3DS, PLAY THESE!
The big difference between games, is if you play a game and remember it or not. most of games we just play it, and in 1 month we do not even recall the characters name, Grisaia is something you will remember, and is sad, as after 2 years and hundreds of games, I still recall everything of this plot, meaning that I'm unable to play it again.
One of the best and most creative plots ever.
A unique take on the concept of "fiction" itself, which will change your view of it overall
A mystery story will live in your head forever
Best story ever told.
Love this game, best thing key have made.
This is one of key's masterpieces.it should be at least in the top five.
This is one of the best vns I have ever played
This was brilliant and Last Window was even better. With a fantastic art style, chilled out atmosphere and engaging series of interweaving mysteries, these are among the most underrated games out there.
Absolutely fantastic story from start to finish, great film noir style, and immersive atmosphere. An absolute must play on the Nintendo DS!
The music and artwork in this game are simply amazing. The characters are very well thought out, and the story is awesome as well. If you want a first rate adventure novel, with mystery, sci-fi, and romance mixed in, then this is for you.
I love this visual novel! Should be higher on the list!
I don’t get why everyone liked the second game over the
first one. I found the characters of the first game to be more likable and less
generic. Also, thanks to this game, I found my favorite anime character
(because the first game has an anime, unlike SOME GAMES from the series) and a
human version of Undertale’s Papyrus, so there’s that.
Better than steins gate
Really good stories, that make you get involved in the game, its true that the VN feels "old" and kinda tiring for some moments, but it´s still a a "classic" and a pretty enjoyable game
This game is basically the yaoi version of Saya no Uta. They're both gory but they're really good. - AO1-H1KAR1
Over a decade, and still my favorite visual novel ever - taishisohma
In my opinion, even if you don't like the story, which is still great, the soundtrack is the greatest soundtrack out of anything ever.
The atmosphere is amazing and it has some of the most memorable music. The story will make a man cry. This novel is highly recommended. If you want a tear-jerker, then Narcissu and Ever 17 are some of the best.
Great vn, also very beautiful
Did you know that Guitar Hero is my favorite JRPG?
