You know Mags, not as a personal attack or anything, but your elitist attitude really begins to shine through when you've simply called me out, questioning my activities along with everyone else.
You're suggesting that half the users here are hardcore eroge players (which he and I both are). I find that assumption rather ridiculous.
Consider the gradations of ecchi in gaming (you did say play after all):
light fanservice (Ar Tonelico) < heavy fanservice (Kodomo no Jikan) < light 18+ visual novel (Kana) < ero-focused visual novel (Sengoku Rance) < fetish-focused visual novel (Hitomi: My Stepsister) < revolting fetish-focused visual novel (?!)
Most people here probably fall in the light fanservice category, if that. I'd place you in the light 18+ visual novel category (correct me if I'm wrong). There's still 3 categories above that.
Anyway...the point of this silly posturing is that Americans in general are pretty sensitive regarding sexual material in gaming. They offend easily. People like me and grgspunk...don't. We're tolerant of such things, even if they don't appeal to us, because we draw very strict boundaries between what is real, and what is fictional--something even the Supreme Court has failed to do thus far.
Now with your grading levels in mind, just because you've seemingly played the "worst" out there possible doesn't necessarily make you any more or less "hardcore", if you're assuming correctly(which you're not). I for one, have a set of standards coming from being influenced by great stories, so I simply don't play all of those sex romps which you seem to like(I realize you've played Kana, but from what I can tell you also like what most of G-Collections/Peach Princess puts out, which I would simply consider to be mostly sub-par or generic. I don't touch any of that).
So before you consider me in any category, know that you're far off if you think I'm as shallow as you are. I only limit myself to the proven VNs, not all the other filler crap you would consider "good":
Yes, that's IT. I don't go for anything else. Playing anything else AND calling me out doesn't make you an "elite" visual novel player, it just makes you look ignorant.
