    You don't have feels? Then you don't get it.

    out of interest what's the deal with this game?

    I keep hearing of this "thing/feeling" you get while playing it.
    Have you ever had that feeling where you're continually telling yourself that you're not going to cry? That feeling where you want so desperately for the situation to be better, but all you can do is watch the events unfold in front of you? That feeling where you want to just let it all go and go back to the way things were? That feeling where something is so pitiful and stupid but you're not going to let it get in the way? That feeling where you want something you'll never have?

    This game is going to make you feel things. It's going to make you feel things you don't want to feel, and it's going to be okay. All you have to do is tell yourself it's going to be okay and hope that, in the end, you turned Hisao into a good person. If you did, then you'll know the feeling, and it'll be okay.

    what I meant was that I was talking to my friend about some problems I have about talking to people/general stuff about interaction with girls

    basically after a long talk he told me I play this game because of some emotion it gives you

    Shit, it made me realize how much of a pussy I am when it comes to women and that I should be more assertive. Of course, I already knew this and this game just pushed the point further.

    This game literally got me a raise at work. As soon as I started playing it, my attitude improved so much so that my boss at work noticed it. He pulled me aside and was like, "(Doomish), I know you've been stepping it up lately, and I think you're finally ready for full time pay." And then he proceeded to, y'know, give me a raise (even though i was already MAKING full time pay)

    I've been smiling more because of this game. I've been more socially outreaching because of this game. I trust in myself more because of this game. In a time where I was so ridiculously depressed I was about ready to just give up on life and lay in bed all day, Katawa Shoujo came out of nowhere and slapped me right in the damn face. It really woke me up.

    You're welcome. I have nary a bad thing to say about this game. My only gripe with it is that there are tiny, insignificant grammar errors throughout, but there's nothing you can do about that.

    Sadly, I'm still all depressed because I can't get a job or a girlfriend for the life of me in real life. So it is more like slaps to my face that are doing nothing.

    It's pushed my depression considerably further, but I just can't stop.

    There is one run-on in Shizune's arc that bugged the SHIT out of me. I sort of feel like I should go through the game and release a KS v1.0.1 with grammar fixes.

    Well KS thread, I'm gonna go sleep now. Finish Shizune's arc tomorrow, write a couple papers, then (hopefully) start on Lilly's arc. In the meantime, I have to think of fittingly depressing music that I have...

    It was just the one. I noticed a few others through the game, but THIS ONE WAS A RUN-ON SENTENCE THAT COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN PREVENTED WITH TWO COMMAS HNNNNNG

    Yeah. But I loved it all the same. Possibly the most feel I felt was that one. Probably because I had misjudged Rin, as she is far different than she seemed in Act 1. I chose her initially because she seemed like me. But as it went, I ended up feeling more like Hisao was with Rin.    I don't truly understand the women I like/love.

    I ended up doing Rin's story last (of my own volition, not because I was told to or etc.). Hisao ended up exactly like me in the Rin story and I hated him for it so much all the way up until the end. I didn't want him to be me. In a way, Hisao acting like the person I was before I played the game, bumbling through life on a path of obvious destruction, was what I've left behind now. I sound completely insane typing this out, and it was even harder explaining it to someone in person, but the game really did wake me up to what my life COULD be.

    So, I think this is essentially what I've gleamed from the majority of this thread:

    If you have Hisao act like you would, and take the path that you would in real life...

    You wind up fucking things up?

    Honestly, no. With most of the choices you're given, it's either glaringly obvious what will fuck things up for Hisao or not, or you'll be able to discern what you want to do for yourself which, if you're any kind of good person, will be the better choice.

    I tried to be "myself" the first time through, and it ended up working out with Lilly, but I dunno about the others. When I was replaying the game, my real thought process was: "What's best for the girl in question?" If it can't be answered, then I default to what I would do.

    I've been listening to Red Velvet all day. I can't shake this up-top cheery feeling off of me. Not that I want to, but I'm surprised how happy this song can make a person. Even with the weather outside being cloudy and quite depressing, I've just been cleaning up the house without a second thought, working out and reading to exams. Something I haven't done in years.

    I gotta hand it to Four Leaf, they picked some kick-ass music. Even the main menu theme was cool and helps me sleep. When I read Doomish's post, I realized I'm probably not the only one that gets a positive thumbs up from playing this game.

    Strange.

    I'm answering on a mobile device, so bear with me if my response has a few errors in it.

    Honestly, your response isn't strange at all. In fact, it's rather intriguing. I've never seen people respond to a game like this before, and there seem to a lot out there. What people thought was going to originally be "hurrhurr cripple porn" turned into an extraordinary, heart-felt story that seems to have turned a website of hypercritical, Japanaphobic (in the sense of Japanese interactive novels such as this) on its goddamned HEAD.

    It's taken people with a negative outlook on life and made them realize that shits not that bad.

    You have a pretty good point, haven't thought of that. Now that I do, most of the time FP has been quite anime-hating, barring a few pockets meant for the opposite, (Fast Anime etc.) Maybe it's just because people want to be honest about this or they're taken by surprise. Only goes to show this is one of those things that you underestimate no matter how carefully you try to guess it's impact on you.

    I think the other thing that I find so interesting is how easily people have gotten sucked into all of the storylines so thoroughly.

    I think one of the things I love most about the game is the eye it takes to spot stuff that doesn't change. As I replayed the game going down path after path, I noticed that there were a few small things that DIDN'T change. At all. Ever. Regardless of whether you're involved or not. It's hard to pick one that doesn't spoil anything, but if you keep your eyes open, you can spot things here and there that will happen no matter what you, or rather, Hisao, does about it.

    I actually find it quite amusing there's so many friendlies and nobody has commented "wow gay nerds" yet.
    I mean, that would be quite typical Facepunch behavior, at least in FT.

    Although I don't mind, it's obviously better this way.

    The strange thing about the game, and I know I'm not the only one that felt this because others have agreed, is that I didn't have the weirdest boner. I never had the weirdest boner. The game all but killed me sexually; not that I have a very active sex life anyway. Unlike Lilly, I have no healthy adolescent sex drive and probably won't for a while.

    But then again, I completed No Fap 2011 on this very forum without much trouble, so maybe it's just me being me.
