VN of the Year 1995 - Eve: Burst Error

1995 did not bring as many masterpieces as previous years while increasing the total number of visual novels significantly

First of all, let's prolong the chart

VN per year






There's been a steady increase in total number VNs by 16% compared to year 1994.
The aftertaste is bitter as if I witness an overall decline in quality.

So let's see what year 1995 brought:
  • The number of VNs with high difficulties and genre mixes increased steeply
  • Command selection gets almost extinct being substituted with either point and click or ADV
  • Moe first focused on in Classmates 2 started its victorious march through the time
  • Conception of time showed up in several games at once after success of Classmates 1 and 2
  • First Windows VN - Sinkha
Let's count the masterpiece level games of 1995: 

2. Eve: Burst Error
3. Isaku
4. Kuro no Danshou: The Literary Fragment
5. Lilith
6. Mime
7. Mugen Yasoukyoku
8. Ryouki no Ori
9. Romance wa Tsurugi no Kagayaki - The Last Crusader-
10. Tokyo Twilight Busters ~Kindan no Ikenie Teito Jigokuhen~
11. True Love ~Jun'ai Monogatari~
12. Youjuu Senki 2 -Reimei no Senshi-tachi-

Just twelve works? That's a definite decline from 1994. Eve: Burst Error is an unbeatable giant this year. It is the best known old game that has not lost a grain of its charm to our days. It has all the rights to be the VN of the Year 1995.

Oh, and some final words. The era of pc-98 is actually almost gone. Year 1996 will the transition one and 1997 will have only some leftover slowpokes on pc-98 systems. So let's say thanks to the magnificent beautiful world of pc-98 and dive into... very crude and ugly works of beginning of windows era...
