Thats why you should stick to playing 1 vn at a time imo. Maximum 2 and make sure to finish them.


letmeseeantipozi

This and if you're really not feeling it then just drop it imho.


Grim-is-laughing

In that way i would have dropped 75% of games/vns/animes/mangas that i have finishet till now


Liveless404

Ummm... how about 28~ish at same time


Chaczapur

Rookie numbers. 50 is where it's at, super short ones included.


Frequent_Bet_8677

Yup


An0nym00s123

VNs are definitely those type of games that I have to play one at a time. If I want to properly get invested in this world, I have to focus solely on this visual novel.


masagrator

Saya no Uta is like few hours long... Maybe it's time to review what went wrong with your motivation?


haleykohr

Yep, song of saya seems long but ends super fast. Honestly it should have spend more time on the lore on my opinion


KawaiiMajinken

As someone who stopped reading midway too as op... He He He


Shadowknaight

Spending time on the lore isn't something that happens in lovecraftian horror. >!The reader knows there is a "monster" and sometimes you know why. There is a lot left up to the person reading as you get the general gist of the story by the end of it.!< >!Lovecraft never spends much time explaining things that are unimportant, Saya is well paced because it follows this idea.!< edit: spoiler tag


haleykohr

I honestly disagree that Saya is “lovecraftian”. There is an aspect of unknown horror, but it’s not “unknowable”, like the kind of existential horror of lovecraft. To be fair, toward the start, you’re not quite sure what the nature of the “horror” is, but as you play on, most people gain a grasp of what is happening.


nitrofire1

In my case i just got freaked out too much for me to commit. I played like 5-6 hours i think? And it got too much for me. I wonder how I completed Subahibi but can't complete saya no uta lol.


The_Majestic

Yeah me too, I couldn't sleep the night i first read it 😅


Redfrixa

I actually forget why i stalled it, maybe because i was too immersed in playing another VN


Healthy-Nebula364

Don't hesitate to drop stuff. Life is too short


The_Majestic

When we were kids if we were bored with a toy we just put it down and picked up another one.


[deleted]

Let's just put as many popular VNs into this meme as possible to make as relatable as possible.


Fedra_1

IMO there's no point in sticking with a story if you aren't engaged anymore. If you feel like you may miss something, you can check reviews to know if the story picks up at certain point (happened to me with You & me & her, I almost drop it before finishing the 1st route, just when the story gets so much better)


Potential_Dry

Yeah, I very often lose interest/motivation after completing one-two routes and then they just sit on my pc for months until I force myself to complete or delete them. And it's not like they are bad, but this strange feeling of mental tiredness keeps piling up till you fully lose desire to read a story...


TopSignature8639

You shouldn't "force yourself" to do something that's supposed to be fun. You're wasting your precious time.


Mauracito

Yep, totally agree. Vns are a really niche thing so you know when you like it or not. Never felt this way because I love them, but you shouldn't force yourself to do things when you don't feel like it (except if you NEED it, but obviously not the case)


Gernnon

I used to be part of the 100% completion gang but as you start having commitments in life like work, free time really becomes a luxury and long VNs with multiple routes just don’t cut it for me, 1-2 routes and I think I’m done. Just go on to the next VN, life is short anyway and there are a lot more out there, every hour you used reading something you dislike/found boring could have been spent on something you like instead.


HansDevX

If you dont read vn's one at a time you won't enjoy anything and won't finish anything. Your backlog is never going to get smaller, you want to read everything but there's only so much you can read. What do I do? I throw a dice and read whatever gets chosen from my backlog. 1 VN or JRPG at a time.


Saekoa

I just bought 70 during the steam summer sale lol


August_Hail

This is me but with fan-translated visual novels. I'll get to White Album 2 at some point..


RedMyxa

I can relate way to much with that pic. Especially with Kinkoi and Yozora xD


SkyMaidenWendy

I want to read Saya No Uta so freakin bad! 😫


mashdoobruh

What’s stopping you? It’s very short


SkyMaidenWendy

I’m not sure where to find it to read it, isn’t the one on steam edited? I’m not looking for nsfw content but I do want the whole story ya know?


mashdoobruh

Pretty sure you can buy the steam version and then download the patch from JASTUSA to restore the 18+ content


mashdoobruh

otherwise the full game is available on the jastusa store iirc


SkyMaidenWendy

Thank you so much! I’ll definitely look into that when I get off work 😄


mashdoobruh

Happy to help! Have fun if you end up getting it


Cahill23

Steam has it listed under “Song of Saya”, you may have to turn off search filters filters if it doesn’t show up in results.


Abyssal_mimic

Do it then, it's well worth the time.


ALI_P7

I just finished clannad VN and I want to read Tomoyo after Than I remembered I really want to read little busters and then I forgot I still haven’t finished umineko


5benfive5

Me with Raging Loop.


Kuraya137

Name everything in the meme. 3 2 1 go


DarkrawlerX

The top 4 of the unfinished VNs are: Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~, Chronoclock, Senren*Banka & Saya no Uta


Kerrick101

Bottom left is A Sky full of Stars. Right side is Kinkoi, Little Busters, Aokana and Ever17


drflobbagupi

Aw man tomoyo after, ready to get the heart broken all over again


NigouLeNobleHiboux

I'm trying to finish the higurashi series but I stopped in the middle of the second to play all of the Science Adventure games and now that I'm at the seventh I'm getting distracted by Danganronpa


Ornery-Recognition59

Despaironpa is fun


GensokyoIsReal

fr fr


shinoa1512

Me currently struggling to finish Cyanotype Daydream


razle2612

what is the one from bottom left under "my unfinished vb"


DeufoTheDuke

Miagete Goran / A Sky Full of Stars


Ravenunited

it's a first world problem that I enjoy to have tbh.


Sonicdiver

OP please finish the ones you're reading now! They're so good!


Redfrixa

I've been planning to continue chronoclock after finished rereading summer pockets :)


Sonicdiver

Yes that one's pretty good. I still need to read summer pockets.


Bananchiks00

I usually play one or two times, then it kinda gets boring


espyyyyy

Don't bother with Tomoyo After tbh... not worth the read


KiiroiSenko971

Still I'd recommend you to start Ever17 right away. It is a masterpiece


Kerrick101

I also do the 4 VNs alternating between them. 1. long playtime. 2. Serious/Dark/Nakige theme. 3. And 4. moeges/Comedy with medium/small playtime. If you have more games waiting just switch as you finish.


Illustrious_Ninja760

I’m in that right now. Halp.
