the same: Kill one of your peers so you can leave the island. Provided if you don’t get caught. Gameplay is similar to the previous game. It’s still a mix of two modes: Daily Life
and Class Trials. Daily life still revolves around talking to
friends and getting to know each of the unique characters. During its course, investigate clues as your
daily life turns into Deadly Life. But just like every Danganronpa game, the
Class Trials are its main selling point. Find the true culprit by showing your evidence
to the table and demolish their loopholes by argumentative and logical approach. Just like Phoenix Wright, prove their guilt
by outsmarting them. And do it with style! Danganronpa 2 has a PlayScore of 8.71

  1. This is merely my personal opinion:

    It’s crazy how there are so many Otome games now. It’s actually hard to find a regular plain visual novel that I’m so used to playing. Where it’s the whole “make decisions to eventually be with that certain someone and it affects the route.” But now, you gotta do minigames, solve a murder mystery, or choose whether or not to answer a phone call, etc.

    But idk how the hell a murder mystery game is now the #1 best visual novel game in the Sony store. In my personal opinion, that’s just sad.

  2. Not gonna be that guy, but Steins;Gate deserves top spot. I say that having played the entire list besides Pigeon dating Sim.

  3. What a trash list, you put S;G on sixth, but you put its inferior midquel, S;G0 as No. 2 and call it "the best Steins;Gate game to date"? You put a damn otome game directly above it. I haven't read norn9, but judging from what blazinglycoris said in the comments, I don't think it's wrong to assume it's of usual otome quality. You also put Danganronpa above it as No. 4 and its sequel as No. 1. A series full of nonsense and "LOL DESPAIR". Not only does this video contain a lot of errors, but using playscore is a terrible way to judge these VNs. There are better top 10 lists of vita VNs out there and better lists of VNs in general, go look for those instead.

  4. Quick correction concerning Steins Gate 0, probably too late to fix it anyways. However, the time traveller is suzuha not amane yuki. Yuki is Suzuha's biological mother.

  5. I was trying to find a new game to play, the only games I haven’t played on this list is the dating sims

  6. Are there any galge's or eroge's for PS Vita? i mean the real dating visual novels,not otome games. I don't care if there is no H-scenes,i want to play on Vita romantic visual novels,something in same level as Clannad or Princess Evangile or Katawa Shoujo

  7. Zero Escape at nr7 is a joke. It is so far above any other title in this genre that stating otherwise is plain stupidity

  8. Part of this list is on android and app store for free. Does the ps vita version have more to it? Also is the same true for the pc versions?

  9. I'm a very simple girl, I see sonia, and click. I reallllly love danganronpa. I lose sleep because of it haah

  10. norn9, above steins;gate what is this madness. norn9 is a bland excuse for an otome game, and even blander excuse for a visual novel. honestly steins;gate is the best vn the vita has seen yet

  11. I feel Really Really bad for Poor Chiaki Nanami. Kyoko Kirigiri, Chiaki Nanami, Kaede, Maki, Miu Iruma, Himiko, Tenko, Ibuki, Peko Pekoyama, Junko Enoshima, and Mikan are All the best Ultimate WAIFUS in the Entire Danganronpa Series so far. What do you think?

  12. SPIKE CHUNSOFT (Developers of the Danganronpa series) developed the ZERO ESCAPE SERIES. I HAVE THE ENTIRE DANGANRONPA SERIES ON PC THROUGH STEAM! The Danganronpa Series is Definitely the best Video Game franchise ever!

  13. Weird list that includes sequels?? That's a bummer. The rest of it is a good video. I would recommend to play 999 before Virtues Last Reward and Zero Time Dilemma though! Or else you will miss out on quite some plot points. They will release 999 and VLR in a combo pack for Vita this year (maybe they already did, I don't follow it that closely)

  14. Funny how many otome games there are, yet male protag with female hearts to steal isnt so present on the vita. Which surprised me. I just got my vita so I could be wrong? (I dont feel much like dating dudes….)
    Steins Gate is a must have for me…. I was always in doubt about whether or not Id like Danganrompa. Every review I see of it pushes it up higher in my 'want to try it out at least' list though…

  15. Never would've found out about Dangonronpa or the Zero Escape games if it weren't for the Vita.
    Favorite console ever, or at least super high up there.
