Darn it, you really make me want to play Fortune Arterial and Tayutama on the off chance that I'll like them, even though they don't look like the kind of game I normally go for.

I only started playing VNs on a regular basis in late summer '07--and I'm a slow reader of Japanese, to boot--so I'm still very much in catch-up mode. Then there's the fact that I took several months off from games in the summer of '08, and I got a lot less done than I'd hoped. Here's to playing more eroge in the new year!

Spoiler for Commercial games I played in 2008, in order:

The color-coding is fairly self-explanatory, I think. Haha. But this shows that I only played 11 2008-released games, and since 5 of them were otome/BL stuff, that leaves only Chaos;Head, Chrono Belt, ef - the latter tale, G-Senjou, Sumaga, and Sharnoth. Chrono Belt and Chaos;Head (well, those and Sweet Pool) were my favorites not only out of the new games, but out of everything I played. They left me with essentially zero complaints. Chrono Belt in particular was just a magnificent piece of work.

I had a few gripes with Sumaga, but it was more fun to play than any game I'd encountered in a long time. I was completely engrossed throughout. There were things I would've changed about it, but nothing crippling, and the storytelling mechanics are bold and inimitable. It felt fresh and def. succeeded as a piece of entertainment.

The characters and Utena-esque aspects of Sharnoth really grabbed me. Overall, though, I found it disappointing in comparison to Sekien no Inganock. ef - the latter tale has a vastly greater thematic scope than its predecessor, and Mizuki is one of my favorite heroines ever, but the Yuuko/Yuu story left me cold, and so I came away from the game with very mixed feelings because of that.

I still think that G-Senjou wasted so much of its potential. That said, it kept me hooked throughout, even when I began to have a sinking feeling about where it was going, and Haru was a marvelous character.

In 2009, I'm most looking forward to the Sumaga fandisc, eden* (I want to see how minori follows up on ef), Para-sol (Carnelian artwork = must-get), the next Propeller game, the new Type-Moon stuff (especially Girls' Work), and Rewrite... even though the designs for it make me gag a little.

Enjoying myself with Campanella's trial and Coming x Humming right now. Oh man, now I can't wait for Campanella to come out!

Speaking of trial, I've got to try out Sakura no Uta's. And finish Supreme Candy while at it.

FrontWing is unforgivable for butchering Renge's story, which should be the best scenario, but instead got reduced to half scenario path compared to other heroines, and no epilogue. And in the end, they never actually explain what is the true nature of Hoshiuta.
They better make some fandisk or something to repent for their sins.

As for Megiddo, I got sick of the unbelievable high rate of battle encounter so I hack and shut it off, and while I'm at it, activate all the cheat available.

I'm currently alternating between DCIIPC and Tears to Tiara right now. And the classification of TTT as a Strategical RPG (a genre that the west call Tactical RPG) is not exactly accurate. I find the combat to be more of a cross between real-time tactics and turn-based.

As some may know, my tastes tend to be more along the "mainstream romantic comedy/drama" AVG-style games (basically, the style of story they could easily turn into anime productions). Not going to bother doing a countdown, just list them.

If anyone's interested, apparently TakaJun posted his a list of what he consider to be top 2008 eroge in various categories as well:

As for me, I don't think I've played much new stuff this year. I decided to go back and play through the all-ages version of Baldr Force. Hyper Mode is so cheating, but it gets the tediousness out of the game.

Takajun, along with the rest of Yandere Translations (occationally known as BRO FIST TRANSLATIONS), has officially announced Sengoku Rance as the next game they're going to translate.

That would be great. I've wanted to play but the prospect of complex and hard to machine-translate Japanese put me off, but if they can make the dialogue and game system readable I would jump at the chance to play the game.

I bet his common complaint is "It's really not fun having to translate the sex scenes. It's just plain awkward. "

I wasn't interested at all in Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa nai until, for some reason, I went to the official site and listened to the character self-introductions. I liked all of them, but Asuka's was the one that made me think, "I must have this." And I know not to take erogamescape too seriously, but there were a lot of comments there about how the writing in the Prelude version was just plain interesting. So I'm quite intrigued now; I think I may get it.

Megido went down pretty badly in terms of reviews, I'm not surprised it's not on there.
