KS affects 'us' much. But, do you think it affects 'them'?

I'm a male. I know a (few) female that cried like we did and have the same reaction like we have.

I'm a male. I don't give a shit about it and I don't give a shit about females (a.k.a The Kenji Way).

I'm a female. I cried while playing this game and certainly it affects me.

Anyone with a heart will be affected by KS - if you do not get feels at this game, I'm sorry, but you have no soul. None. Not even the tiniest little bit of one. :P
Sorry I missed this.
I once read somewhere, there is this dude saying that he got no feeling after he played the game. Not sure if he is trolling or what.
Sadly I can't remember where I read that.

Same with me.
KS is the first and, by far the only VN I've played, yet I think it's the best VN.

"Why don't you try another VN?" you might ask.
Simply because if I had found something great, I rarely [doesn't mean I won't] look for another one.

Plus, someone here said "if you're constantly seeking the next high, it probably won't end well".
Bonus points if you knew who said that =D

I mean, my favorite part is where it talks about humans: women choosing men who are the most unlike themselves, according to microbiological criteria based on subconscious scent signals. Which is totally the same thing.
Well, I see you as a smart person, so I expect that instead of looking at the stick mocking me and trying to pull out the most incompetent bits of text from the link I gave you, you will follow some links at this page and read about sexual selection and filter theory, which state that women tend to seek men who are similar to them (similar as in age, race, social status and religion) and superior to some other men, which can follow up as women being picky about their men not being disabled, and vise versa, since this is 21st century, and sexes in most countries are sorta equal. Combining that with a thesis that most disabled people have difficulties even in modern world (I guess this needs no proof - ride a wheelchair, wear an eyepatch on one eye or plug your ear for a week to understand what I mean, and those aren't severe cases) you get the idea why I said that disabled people have difficulties having full-scale social life (not talking about pretty girls there, there are people of all ages, genders and social statuses there). No one wants to make one's life more complex by biting off an edge from a puzzle piece.

No, you've quite thoroughly managed to show us all something we should remember about you. Thanks.

Thanks, this information is very important to everyone, and is definitely on topic. You can go on if you want, we all are interested in your judgements.

Atario and wazuzu, you both have a choice to either carry your off-topic passive-aggressive snark to PMs or to become temporarily unable to do so. Your pick.

Where's the "I'm a male. I know a female that didn't cry while playing this game and didn't leave her anything emotional." option?
Sad, but true. My gf didn't like this game very much and quit shortly after she finished act 1.

Well there's her problem, Act 1 is just the "choose your route" pre-story, pretty much.

I'm a female and I was absolutely obsessed with this game, cried, went into withdrawals when it was over etc etc but it was also at an emotional point in my life. also i just cry a lot. but i really really loved it and it still affects me even on replaying it.

I think I probably can't trust anyone who feels nothing from this game.

Off topic, but I just noticed you also have "atari" in your name. We should totally hang out.

Reminder that Atari nearly destroyed the games industry and you should feel bad.

:P And there are better things to play with someone else anyway. Like Twister. :twisted:
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

Being that they invented it, it was theirs to destroy.

I'm just saying, you have Atari to thank for Katawa Shoujo. :lol:
