First of all! My Choice of Games favorites. For CoG, my favorites are the Heroes Rise trilogy and Creatures Such As We ;u;
Heroes Rise, I was avoiding for a long, long time before I actually played it because I didn’t like the idea of superheroes being celebrities. One day, I decided to try it on impulse and I really fell in love with the story and the characters! Especially Black Magic. Despite him being an irritating jerk in the second game, I couldn’t help but stay with him anyway because he was just that precious to me, and I’m a naturally loyal person, so… no matter how cute and nice Lucky was, I couldn’t give in to him because I was smitten for Black Magic. Sue me. The characters were probably the reason why I loved Heroes Rise so much, but the storyline is quite notable as well. It’s a unique take on the typical superhero game, and I was very delighted about that.
As for Creatures, well, it was the first choice game I ever played. As such, it will always hold a special place in my heart. I enjoyed-- well, appreciated the philosophy of it all; it hit me hard. I almost cried when I thought Elegy died forever. Like, it seriously gave me several epiphanies, and quite a few tear stains on the desk. Creatures was so amazingly unique that I couldn’t help but fall in love with it, and I really can’t say anything more on the matter.
Next up are the Hosted Games. Ohhh boy.
The two which I adore the most are the Samurai of Hyuga series and Fatehaven. Oh god, Fatehaven. First and foremost, I would just like to say that Fatehaven really attacked me on a mental, spiritual, and emotional level. It drew me in with its humor and made me stay with its story. I love Fatehaven in ways words cannot describe, and really, the ending (or the parts leading up to the ending) were on whole new levels of what the hell for me. But I loved it. I loved the way it hurt. It just has this certain charm to it which I treasure.
Next is SoH. It’s not really a surprise that I love this one, too, given how much I love Fatehaven. The same things go for this one: I love the story, and I love the characters. From my above statements you can probably tell that the characters are very important for me, and they are especially great in SoH. Even the little side ones, like Ume-ume. I adored her, despite my PC’s distaste. Though I am a bit pouty over the fact that I can’t romance my chosen RO until far later, I appreciate the room it creates for character development.
Creatures Such As We (b/c of the thought put into it, and ELEGYYYY)
Heroes Rise Trilogy (b/c of the characters, mostly)
Fatehaven (b/c it f****ed me up, in a good way, SILVANUS man, I cried. It was very humorous but unexpectedly serious at the end!)
Samurai of Hyuga (b/c of the personality of the whole thing, the characters and the distinct writing style, too, actually)
