You don't have feels? Then you don't get it.
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.
the feels are halting my progress on this drawing
can't get tears on the paperrrrrrrrr
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
typwing on a andrios you never uses before makes you lazy when explaoning thi
my feels in rin's path were mostly confusion
perhaps I should go through it again
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.
thank you doomiah for your explanation.
boo on the rest of you i easnt trying to be rude :(
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...
I didnt care about grammar issues because its a good game
rin's story was loaded with grammar problems
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?
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.
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.
Jesus Christ, you Foxxcon Apple piece of SHIT AGH.
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.
You people make me laugh a good laugh. I'm saving some of this stuff for the second thread, God willing we don't run out of steam by then.
(Hey, 200 steady posts a day. I ain't complaining.)
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.
I wonder what each people sound like, I already have a good idea for Lily and Rin, Shizune will need one hell of a voice actor to pull her off.
Personally I've never had a boner whenever playing KS, nor thinking about any character.
