Apples I don't think anyone has mentioned True Rememberance, even though it's one of the best works insani has localized, and definitely a jerker of tears.

Even after all these years, I still reckon Narcissu is a huge tear jerker.

This? Is it really a nakige? Those are usually tagged as such...

Right. So there is nakige (tear-jerker?) and utsuge (dark?). Are there other definition specific to VN or eroge industry? How do you define/divide them? By genre (comedy, romance, drama, tragedy, psychological, suspense, thriller, mystery, supernatural, etc) or something else? Is there example where one game can equally be tear-jerker and mind-challenging at the same time?
There're no "official" classifications (unlike book publishers), if that's what you're asking. Fans and companies like to throw around terms to describe/group games, but I don't place too much importance on that. By reading a product description, you can get a good idea of what a story might be like, especially given the lack of variety in the industry. For instance, you know that most story-driven titles will have a romantic element (and often some melodrama that might invoke tears or sympathy from the reader). Whether it's a sci-fi themed romance, romantic comedy, supernatural themed romance, or slice-of-life romantic drama can be identified by the descriptor.

Anyway, what do you mean by mind-challenging? Type-Moon stories have complex exposition/narration, as well as bittersweet endings, so that might count.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien.. One more anime to list along with Clannad After Story, Chaos;Head (both soon be released translated game and anime), Gundam00 season two and Toradora!
Personally I'm not gonna touch the unofficial Clannad patch until the "official" one is done... I think it would ruin the story otherwise. Also while I'm waiting for it to be released, I can save up money and purchase the game, then when the patch does come out, play it for the fist time with the best possible environment!

There will be tears... I am sure of it.

So yeah, unless you speak Japanese fluently, wait for the real patch. I heard the unofficial patch is kinda crappy, and you don't want that to ruin the story for you.

What's the difference between Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night, to Kara no Kyoukai?

Already mentioned in this thread, but Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is probably what you're after (if you haven't played this already).

some other utsuge of note:
SWAN SONG
Gin'iro

I'd love to know more about 'dark' titles (such as Phantom of Inferno, TYPE/MOON titles etc), but it's getting off topic isn't it? Is it okay to continue or is it necessary to create another thread? :3

Haven't checked out Phantom of Inferno before, but I will.

@Chewy: And I just happen to finish downloading Tenshi no Inai 12-gatsu OP song I Hope So.. found only in a dying torrent. That took a lot of time for sure.

And is it true that he, along with the writer of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, are going to handle the scenario for the next KEY's title REWRITE?
Yeah, both are involved. However, since Key's Itaru Hinoue is handling the actual planning, it won't really be their story.

Anyway, I think Phantom of Inferno is the best VN that has been officially translated.
2008-10-05 15:56
After few wiki read.. so the acclaimed Cross+Channel is also his work? Now I'm totally interested.

Anyone played Yume Miru Kusuri and willing to give comment about it? Does the series has the tear-jerker quality like Kana Little Sister? And so on.
2008-10-05 15:55
Asceai Hourglass of Summer? I played that, and wasn't really impressed at all (even ignoring the fact that the localised version is DVDPG, because I played the PC rerelease). I'd say that the best VNs that have been officially localised are Ever17 and Yume Miru Kusuri. Of course, it's all reader-dependent - I liked Kazoku Keikaku more than both of those titles, as well.
2008-10-05 15:27
Moogy Yes, Romeo Tanaka wrote all of those games. He worked on I/O too.

Also, E17 and HoS are the best VNs that have been officially localized. Maybe that will change when Kazoku Keikaku is out?
