I've played 2 AVN games, both by Dr. PinkCake, and I honestly thought the the stories were very well thought out. At the end of the day, yeah, these games fall in line with pornography, but, I was insanely hooked on these games on my first playthrough. I was browsing Steam when I found a game called Acting Lessons, which the first AVN I've ever read, and the first Dr. PinkCake game I've ever played. I saw that it had raving reviews and thought, "a porn game is getting overwhelmingly positive reviews?" and decided to look at the trailers and bought the game for $10. I was expecting to return it after a few minutes but found myself completely invested in the characters and the drama that was unfolding on my screen.
I'm a sucker for drama or romance stuff when it comes to anime and movies, so maybe that was one thing that was working against me when I launched this game because, 20 minutes turned into an hour, an hour into 3, 3 hours into a week. I couldn't put it down. The pornographic stuff was pretty funny, but you ever hear when viewers talk about watching their "favorite videos" for the "plot?" I was literally playing these games for their actual plot LOL.
The games I have played and became an instant fan of were Acting Lessons and Being A DIK. Both are on Steam, and both have fantastic OSTs. If you guys have played these games, we should discuss them because I was NOT ready for that ending in Acting Lessons. I was not OK for like 3 days.
And I realize how hilarious it is that I am typing about AVNs here, you guys can laugh. I think it's pretty damn funny that 2 AVN hooked me this bad.
