Was playing an eroge recently and a sex scene came up "didn't fap lol" and it made me think... Does anyone play hentai VN's and not fap because they're interested in the story but with some sex scenes thrown in. I know there are some out there which are just hentai with a little context but others have good plot and characters but happens to have sex in it. Just thought it would be interesting to get others opinions on this.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

Personally it's really situational, and often depends on the type of material I'm looking at. If I was playing something like you mentioned; "just hentai with a little context" then I would absolutely have picked it up just for the fap. And in fact, usually I pick these kinds of things up because I'm looking to fap - but sometimes the story or the gameplay or what have you ends up distracting me and I get sucked in for different reasons. It kind of leads to a "I came here to fap, but it's three hours later and I forgot my fly was down" situation where I just forget why I booted up the game in the first place. Ironically, those tend to be my favourite games.

A good example of this was Utawarerumono, which I first heard of on this forum many, many years ago - it was listed as an 18+ vn and I was looking for fap material so I picked it up. I then got sucked into the story, fell in love with the gameplay and now it's one of my favourite VNs - but I've never even unzipped while it was open before.

Then there are other things where the only reason I find it to be a good fap is because of the gameplay - this is kind of combat rape's home category - but if the rest of the gameplay is skimped out on this falls short too.

At the same time though, I always get self conscious about sharing an h-game for the gameplay or the story, if that makes sense. It's like I really enjoy this game for what it is, and I enjoy every facet of it, but if I want to tell someone else about it calling it an h-game or eroge gives off the wrong impression. That's part of why I like this forum, actually, because people here know there's real value in h-games outside of porn.

I get what you mean about that last bit, it's hard to show someone a game you think has enjoyable gameplay or story but is eroge. They look at you as if you're weird LOL

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

I mostly play VN's for story, it's kinda in the title would be a waste to discard all that writing/world building wouldn't it? :)

As an example my most beloved VN is from butcha-u/eroquis it's called 'Dirty Prison Ship/Injuu Kangoku' got released in 2011.
It got a really nice plot kinda adapted from the movie 'the thing'
Fap wise it satisfies lots of different fetishes hot consensual sex scenes, rape, monster, reverse rape + another big thing if you actually read the sex scenes all the characters got totally different personalities which makes their sex scenes pretty unique.:eek:
I think I mentioned this VN a couple times being a good example of a masterfully crafted VN, I dare you to try it out! :p

I can't fap to VN (unless it has good voices and sound), but I do read the story. Reading it helps improve my fantasies even more or my wet dreams. XD

Oh thanks for the heads up with this, I looked in me "collection" and I have it. Think I'm going to give it a go later. :)
*edit oh nvm i mistook this for a different one lol don't have it and I don't really like using machine translation for VN's as it ruins it for me :/
A shame though because it sounds like an awesome one too.

I play for the Plot.
Although I must admit that the art style and genre of the hentai is what draws me in.

"Came for the hentai, stayed for the plot." Sums it up pretty well for me.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

Strangely I don't think I've fapped much to any adult game, I usually just enjoy playing something for an adult audience.

I'd say I'm more interested in the story. ... even adult videos I'll often enjoy the setup more then the actual sex scene, often looking for something else to watch when it's disappointing. Situational sexiness tickles my brain I guess.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

To me it works as bait. I fap to porn in games and it really get's my attention... But I only "keep" playing to the end if I liked the story.

(Or if there is some character that I MUST see getting fucked)

Both. But i most admit that when i choose which VN i want to play. I pick one with Sexual content first but not only because of the fap but also i feel like it strengthens the bond between the Protagonist and Main character.

When two people meet they go though some phases.
Stranger
Acquaintace
Friend
Best Friend
Love Interest
Lovers

I have alot of games when there isn't any Sexual content but then i feel like they still haven't moved on the last phase of the development "Lovers" because you haven't seen them/heard them share a physical bond.

I had the same experience that there was one VN that i didnt fap to because of the plot it was "Grisaia no Kajitsu" Because of the way they did it, this was not your casual H-Scene that you see everywhere this had such more "feelings" into it.

This right here is one of the main reason's play through some eroges. I see a beautiful character with a stand out personality amongst the cast and I just can't wait to see them give in to pleasure.

This why multiple saves are made and why you are able to save in the middle of the h-scene. XD

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

A lot of the eroges I get are of the magical girl genre so there's elements in each one that are the same, but I have an inherent curiosity about whats going on in both the general story despite knowing that it's probably not that much different than any of the others I've played, as well as what's going on in h-scenes since I really like it when the narration is presented with 1st person perspective while she's being fucked.

Although I was curious moreso about Triangle's Sacred Lineage, since the player seems to be the main antagonist in the story, but at the same time the perspective changes between him and that of the two main heroines. It also has a really complicated branching system that decides which scenes and ending you get. Between which of the 4 choices you pick during the school hours (I'm not sure if the player character is incognito at the school or what), what type of monster you bring to capture the heroines during the RPG battle part, how much HP they have left when you do it, or if you defeat them.

Dropping the girl's HP down to 0 is bad. Curiously, I found an interesting special ending you can get at the beginning when you do just that against her when you're supposed to capture her. She goes into shock from all of the blood and refuses that the player character is ready to accept their death and is desperate for you to live even though she was definitely in danger of getting the shit raped out of her. Although there is the fact that in that scenario she ended up going overboard with her princess powers and killed a man, so that would probably scar her for life. I found that to be an interesting characterization played straight in a genre that's plagued with imitators imitating imitators, and something you wouldn't find in another magical girl eroge, that being said it was an abrupt ending, so not really a real route at all.

Sacred Lineage also has a really good battle theme, more catchy than I'd expect from an eroge.

So yeah, that's probably the one I'm most curious about as well as its sequel coming out at the end of july, for most other VNs I put fap first and just break out ChiiTrans if it works to find out what the girl is narrating, roughly, since those parts are never voiced compared to her inner thoughts or whatever. It goes without saying that the artwork, character designs, fetishes included, and variations in h-scenarios is the preliminary factor in deciding whether to check an eroge out or not.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

It really depends on the game.
Some games are pure fap materials. Then there are other games like Nekopara f. ex. which works even without sex. The nekos are so adorable :)

There are also some games which I looked at mainly because of the cg, but ended up reading through the entire game. Like the taimanin series for example...minus the first game, the translation was unbearable to read.
I´m also currently very intrigued to play monster girl quest, for the plot.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

I usually don't play VNs because I prefer sprite or other well-animated fap material. Get most of my story fix from strictly text-based games.

That said, the few VNs I actually have, I have for story. Shuffle was absolutely hilarious, and Katawa Shoujo... damn, that one hits you hard. Those are the kind of reasons I keep VNs around.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

The visual novels I played were mostly because of the story. The Type-Moon VN, for example, have a really good plot/story but the sexual contet is crap and makes no sense.
As always, it depends on the VN.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

I usually take the sex scenes as a form of break, so yes, I fap to eroges. But it has to be like 20-30% of the experience, because its a game. It should be more about the gameplay and eyecandy imo, if not, then rather watch a good video or read a doujin, or a walkthrough XD.

The Type-Moon VN, for example, have a really good plot/story but the sexual contet is crap and makes no sense.
As always, it depends on the VN.
Oh the memories, when I found out there was hentai of FSN... good times those days.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

This might sound strange but there are some games I just stopped playing because I reached some H-scene and wasn't really in the mood for one, and then I never picked it up again because I don't want to skip the h-scene but don't want to see it either, it's weird.

I think I should pick them back up though, to see if it was the writing/translation that was tiring, if the h-scenes were too long or if it was something else, like there being little plot between the h-scenes.

The only thing I know is that I don't remember many nukige I actually finished. Now that I think of it, in many games I think of h-scenes as a chore or unnecessary, but not having them also feels strange and sometimes takes away my motivation to get to the end of the game ...

I don't know, the only thing I'm really sure is that good games either make me enjoy the plot/gameplay so much that I can bear the h-scenes, or make me enjoy both the plot and the h-scenes.

Re: Do you play VN/Eroge just to fap, or for plot?

My first VN was Come see me tonight. Then there was Gibo: Stepmother's Sin. And then there was nothing lol. Don't know, maybe there are not the best VNs, but both of them I played for the plot and tried to see any new speeches when choosed another option.
