A Walk Down Memory Lane – Route 2

March 14, 2009 at 1:47 am 5 comments

Starting around 2004 or so, the number of eroge companies has steadily increased and the quality of the games and OPs has similarly gotten better too. Most of these are now known not only to eroge players, but regular anime watchers since many have been adapted over to anime, such as SHUFFLE!, Canvas2, School Days and ToHeart2. This post covers the period of 2004 to 2005.

2004

Canvas2 ~Akaneiro no Palette~ (F&C) – “Plastic Smile”

Another game I own. Bought it due to my interest in the Canvas series. It didn’t disappoint me one bit. Kana <3

con-neco (Marmalade) – “Egao o Oikakete”

Bittersweet ending makes me RAGE. WHY!!?!??!?!?

SHUFFLE! (Navel) – “Mirage Lullaby”

Kaede > Asa. That is all. I wish Tsubomi had a route in the original.

Haru no Ashioto (minori) – “Haru -feel coming spring-“

It’s Makoto Shinkai. Besides, I’ve played this before. It’s less about relationships and more about growing up.

Princess Brave Jantaku no Kishi (130cm) – “Princess Brave!”

I still don’t understand Japanese mahjong. Maybe watching Saki will help me.

Lamune (NekonekoSoft) – “Nante ne 76’s”

The laid-back nature of the OP and setting hides the heart-wrenching drama that this title holds. I’d compare this to Tapestry.

CLANNAD (key) – “Megumeru”

I know this isn’t technically an eroge, but it’s by key. Anime made me cry.

Other games during this year:

  • 3days ~Michite Yuku Toki no Kanata de~ (Lass)
  • Fate/stay night (TYPE-MOON)
  • Peace@Pieces (UnisonShift)
  • Quartett! (Littlewitch)
  • Saishuu Shiken Kujira (CIRCUS)
  • Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro (Ciel)
  • Sora no Organ (THE LOTUS)
  • Sora Uta (FrontWing)
  • Soul Link (Navel)
  • symphonic rain (Kogado Studio, all ages)
  • Tomodachi Ijou Koibito Miman (Studio Mebius)

2005

_summer (HOOK) – “Koi no Uta”

Relaxing OP for a relaxing game.

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru (Caramel Box) – “You make my day!”

This year traps came to the forefront with OtoBoku‘s Mizuho and Happiness!‘s Jun. I really should finish this game.

Gift (MoonStone) – “Tatoeba, Totsuzen”

Another game I own. I’m torn between Riko and Kirino. I like the OP for the PS2 version too.

School Days (Overflow) – “Still I love you ~Mitsumeru Yori wa Shiawase~”

Infamous game for many reasons: not only the bad ends, but also the immense file size and subsequent patches. The use of extensive video footages did make it distinct though.

ToHeart2 (Leaf) – “Heart to Heart”

I originally played most of this on PS2, then got the PC version when it came out. Konomi is sooooo cute. I love the parody of this in the ToHeart2 Another Days OP.

Nursery Rhyme (Lump of Sugar) – “true my heart”

It’s amazing how well known this song is now. ave;new songs are so hyper.

Other games during this year:

  • Akiiro Renka (Purple Software)
  • AYAKASHI (CROSSNET)
  • Dyogrammaton (CLOCKUP)
  • Fate/hollow ataraxia (TYPE-MOON)
  • Happiness! (Windmill)
  • Koimomo (Fizz)
  • Majokko a la Mode II (F&C)
  • Pastel Chime Continue (AliceSoft)
  • Princess Witches (PajamaSoft)
  • Quilt (CLOVER)
  • Tears to Tiara (Leaf)
  • Tick! Tack! (Navel)
  • Tomoyo After ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ (key)
  • Tsuyo-kiss (Candysoft)
  • Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na (August)
  • Yume Miru Kusuri (ruf)
  • Yunohana (PULLTOP)

    I have played a much higher percentage of these newer games, but wow this list will never end if you keep going. Can just keep adding games from last month as time goes on.

    There is a very obvious quality difference over the years up to around this point. Comparing these to brand new games there really is not a whole lot of differences. Artwork always changes as far as styles but the quality from here on seems to have peaked. Only major additions seem to be interface or feature add ons.

    I liked Asa much more than Kaede. Kaede’s route seems to be screaming attention ._. not something i like much.

    Tsuyokiss… I loved that game. Nigakki kinda ruined it for me.

    Yoake was definately one of the best to me.

    And im so not fapping to that last picture. Neva. Eva. *hides in his room* Don’t peek.

    I suprisingly haven’t played Shuffle! or Clannad (watched anime versions though). I am still waiting for the release of the clannad translation project to get a better understanding of the game and as for Shuffle! I heard about the porting of Shuffle! on stage back to the PC along with 2 new chracters and routes called Shuffle! Essence so I’ll be waiting for that……though I am going to have to fight my urge to play the original Shuffle!

    I remember playing Yume miru kusuri back in 2005, for me that game was short but memorable due to the amazing storyline and bittersweet endings.

    @Zen: I only plan to do this till 2008. Maybe I can write recaps at year end, after the rankings and awards are given out.

    @Algester: I kinda want to play symphonic rain now. I miss the music ADV genre.
