The puzzle controls on Catherine kind of kill the game (for me at least).
Jag85 posted...lovable_lombax posted...Look into visual novels. That's the most abundant source of games similar to this. I'd play 999 and Virtue's Last Reward, and if you like those, try some others like Saya no Uta, Planetarian, Ever 17, and Muv Luv Alternative for example.
Good choices. I'd say 999 and Catherine (as well as The Walking Dead of course) are great introductions to the Visual Novel genre.
However, as has already been pointed out above, some people didn't really like the puzzle sections of Catherine, though I thought they were pretty good (and even better in multi-player).
And oh yeah, there's one more VN-like adventure game I forgot to mention: Shadow of Memories.... if only because it was the game that introduced me to the VN style of branching narratives back in 2001 (many years before I knew what a VN is). It also has a VN successor called Time Hollow, though I've never played it.
