Some of my favorite bishoujo games, visual novels, and other miscellaneous
Bishoujo games 18+:
Cherry - I still need to finish this one. I don't plan to anytime
soon, though. Meh.
Bazooka Cafe -
I was surprised by this one. The graphics turned me off at first, but I
gave it a try and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Crescendo - Another bishoujo game by D.O. A different kind of story, but
it's right behind Kana in terms of story and characters.
Critical Point -
An interesting sci-fi mystery game with constant twists in the plot. See
if you can solve the mystery before you reach the end.
Do You Like Horny
Bunnies? - One of my earliest games. It's a typical setup, but overall
I enjoyed playing it.
Downhill Night 2
- Coming soon...
Downhill Night Blaze
- Coming soon...
~Kazoku Keikaku~ - To be honest, I enjoyed KLS more than FP. But,
overall, I still enjoyed it, despite its flaws. Call me crazy if you want.
Happiness - A touching story with a unique setup. It's a game that I
would consider playing through a second time.
Heart de Roommate
- Plays out like a 24 episode anime. You'll either enjoy it or become
annoyed with it. I almost didn't make it past the third episode.
Hitomi ~ My
Stepsister - Before you start thinking - no, this is not like Kana Little
Sister. It's darker. MUCH darker.
Moero Downhill Night
- Overall, it's about what I expected from the creators of Initial D. The
"races" are really easy, but I still had fun with it.
Pretty Soldier Wars
A.D. 2048 - This one seems to have potential. I'm still considering
getting it. I've tried it. I don't like it.
Princess Waltz -
Overall, a fun game. The card battle system is simple, but at least it
wasn't unbearable. The game needs more Lun Lun, though.
Private Nurse -
It's not what you probably think it is. The game creates a very calm
atmosphere while you play. It's a good change from the norm.
Slave Pageant -
Don't remember much about this game. It didn't stand out too much for me.
It was okay, though.
Snow Drop - I
love the opening theme to this game. The story itself is pretty cool, but
the game system is horrible. You'll probably need a walkthrough.
Snow Sakura -
Another game that I'm interested in getting.
The Sagara Family
- Typical setup for a bishoujo game, but I still found it to be very
- I still need to finish this one. Eventually. Maybe.
Virgin Roster -
My first "evil" game. You play as a teacher with some very dirty plans.
I have to admit, though, there were some awesome moments.
Alternative - If you can get past the whole male turns into female thing,
the game is actually pretty entertaining.
Kusuri - This one met with some of my expectations, but fell short on
others. But overall, definitely a good game to pick up.
Bishoujo games 15+:
AnimePlay PC game. Hot dang, this game is awesome. If you haven't
played this yet, buy it right now.
Summer - AnimePlay Interactive DVD. Basically a bishoujo game without
the hentai. This one will take you a while to complete.
