The wishlist is on a whole other page, and on a computer as slow as mine, the time it takes to load the page is enough time to make me forget about it and start doing something else.
It’s so hard to not give everything 8s and 9s. I go back over it every now and then and adjust it with some retrospective. Like… when I finished Rewrite I was like “that was AMAAAAZING.” Then I had some time to think about it and remember that some routes were really boring or disappointing to me, so it wasn’t 10/10. I then compared it to everything else on the list and put it where it felt right. Everything 6 or above is something that I wouldn’t hesitate to read again.
Also, Zak has a crazy amount. 3x what I’ve read. Not the types I’d enjoy reading though. Lots of big 18+ titles that I’ve been wary of getting. I didn’t even realize BlazBlue and Melty Blood were on VNDB o.o
First up, I almost never 100% CGs. Waste of time. The only VNs that require extra work to get the CGs of that I have 100%ed are Tomoyo After, Kanon, F/SN, Kara no Shoujo, and Finished means to get to the end of a story. The only exceptions to this are the exceptionally bad VNs I stumble across, that I dislike so much that I can say I am no less than finished with it. Those 4 VNs are as followed: I did all of the character routes of Cross Channel, but gave up on it while it was coming to a close. Ever17 I stopped after finishing one route and getting mid-way through 3 others. Grisaia I stopped after going through 2 routes, mid-way through one, and up to the start of one. Hoshizora I remember all of the main routes apart from Kosame’s, which means I didn’t get the secret routes. I got a good 5/7s through I’d guess.
All the other VNs I’ve read have been read up until every good end/true end obtainable has been achieved. (Bad-ends are also a waste of time in Takaland.)
A lot of the VNs I’ve read are short or have no choices, or I’ve just read through with friends as a time waster… so they don’t take up much time usually~ I speed-read everything too. (Litbus took me from December 18th '11 till December 20th '11 to complete, weaving it in-between school work, Yogscast Livestreams, and family festivities. I’d say about 25-30 hours from what I remember of my save page at the time…)
I also spent pretty much all of my free time from late '09 till summer 2011 playing CoD, watching anime and reading VNs, because there was nothing better to do >.> Lazy Taka~
