Title
The best story ever told in a videogame (by a fairly substantial margin). The best cast of characters ever in a videogame (by a fairly substantial margin). A strong contender for richest atmosphere ever in a videogame. A strong contender for best soundtrack ever in a videogame.

The Answer Arcs in particular are some of the finest works of narrative fiction ever made. Catch-22, The Wire, Watchmen. That is the territory here.

What are you waiting for?

Title
The conclusion of what is personally my favorite narrative I've ever experienced, the Answer arcs wrap up the mysteries established in the first series with perhaps the most soul-crushingly beautiful, unforgettable ending ever. More incredible music, more development for each character (you will still come to love them all by at least the third chapter in the previous installment), and other treats await you here.

This series' eclectic nature is easily one of is strongest suits. Both the first and second installments feature remarkable romance, horror, mystery, and even action, the reading of which is far more thrilling than one might first anticipate.

This series clocks in to around 100-120 hours and features some honestly irritating repetition at times, but I can't recommend it enough.

      The day a visual novel is #1 is the day the whole chart should be nuked.

    I don’t think it’s right that this is above so many games with a 4.3/4.2/4.1 and thousands more votes just because it has an insane amount of 5/5 ratings relative to others. I guess it doesn’t really matter since it would still make around top 50 anyway but still. I wonder what the chart would look like if they didn’t account for this statistic.
