The court is now in session.
As I said covering the Ten Best Visual Novels of the year, 2017 was a fantastic year for the medium. However, that doesn’t mean there weren’t a few that weren’t quite up to snuff…in fact more than a few. Yes, as per reviewer traditions that goes back for generations; when talk about the good, we must also talk about the bad. 2017 provided a challenge in that area, because I haven’t played many games that were obviously bad. I have avoided Winged Cloud like the plague, Dharker/BurstRay Games is still on the calendar but I’m not rushing into the fray, and most of the controversial stuff is so obviously broken I haven’t seen the need to get involved.
Also, no furries this year.
With all of that in mind, this list has become less emotional outrage and more logical follow-through. I know many will disagree with some items on this list, but I’m coming in hoping that because I have no choice but to explain everything, we can at least have fruitful conversation on why these ten titles stuck out the most for me as bad in a good year. SO, with that said; roll out the fucking tarp folks. Let’s talk about the TEN WORST VNS OF 2017!
