Reactions in Other Paths?

Post by JustAGuy » Sat Jan 14, 2012 4:30 pm

I was wondering what everyone's reactions were when they saw a girl whose path they've already finished while playing through another girl's.
I played Shizune's path right after Lilly's, and it felt totally strange when Lilly and her were arguing. Lilly's dialogue had a lot more weight to it, and since they make up in Lilly's path I felt like a time traveler.

(That would be an interesting concept in itself, a VN where the main character is aware of all the alternate paths he's been through...)

I approve of a Groundhog Day-based VN.

Having played Shizune's route I realized that when Misha is talking about something without laughing every fifth word I should pay attention.

It would be weird as hell to see a regular romance VN in that fashion.
Lilly path > Hanako path >>>> Shizune path > Emi path > Rin path.

My most heart wrenching moment...Misha getting a haircut.

Higurashi for the win.

I recommend the anime.
It's kinda funny, I've played a bunch of VN's and for the first time I'm feeling apprehensive about going down another path. I'm thinking weird crap like how will Hanako ever be happy if someones not there for her.......
If Hanako's writer reads this I want you to know that I thank you for giving me this wonderful treasure.

In every single route but Shizune's, I really lamented the fact that Hisao couldn't understand sign so he could understand what Shizune was actually saying. :'(

Even though Emi's path was my favorite, I really am quite attached to Shizune. sigh.
Shizune >>> Emi > Rin = Hanako >> Lilly

Which reminds me- going through Shizune's route can put some of Misha's lines in other routes in pretty harsh perspective.

Isn't that concept in which KS players would experience every time they start a new route after the other? Still, I approve.

Going to the question, I had this guilt feeling somewhere in Act 1 when I chose Hisao to defend himself instead of asking for Shizune to cut him and Lilly some slack. A part of me wished I started with Shizune's route then Lilly's.

But the guilt soon disappeared when I started Shizune's route. Righto! Back to the VN!! :)
