It took me basically a year and a half to do so, but I finally finished Amnesia about a month ago. I really enjoyed it overall; as someone who’s not romantically/sexually interested in men, the dynamic between the characters makes or breaks it for me, and even with the more… problematic… characters, I think the dynamic was generally interesting between the main character (plus Orion) and the boys. And then there’s Kent, who kills me in just about every scene; I love him so much?? The last thing I did in the game was unlock the bonus scene you get for answering every question in his route correctly and I diiiied. I will say I wasn’t super fond of how endings worked out, though, since the text skip’s a little slow and after I got a character’s ending I’d generally need to skip through the entire thing twice with a guide to get all of their endings before moving on. Also, a friend who’s way more experienced with otoge and also really liked it’s said that compared to other otoge it’s essentially all about subverting their character types? So I missed out on that aspect, but still. Shame we probably won’t get any of the sequels/fandiscs anytime soon, since IFI released it themselves and they seem to be busy rereleasing Hakuoki instead of Aksys doing so for whatever reason.
On that note, I’d played Hatoful, but that was otherwise my first otoge. Code Realize is apparently the best thing out currently so I’m trying to play all of that now before Collar x Malice hits at the end of July, but given how long Amnesia took and the fact that (ignoring all the non-VN games I’m playing) I’m also playing Steins;Gate 0 currently… that might not end up happening in time.
EDIT: Fivedroids, you might enjoy something more like Amnesia then, since you just pick the person you’re dating immediately at the start. That being said, you probably won’t like all the guys, so there’s that. I think Norn9 is structured similarly but I haven’t heard many positive things about it overall.
