Are you a huge anime fan? Can’t you imagine your day without watching any titles? Well, Japanese cartoons are very impressive and absorbing, but you’ll get bored by only watching. How about playing anime games? They may have different genres, types of gameplay, amount of hours you would spend on them, etc. We are sure you’ll find something you’ll adore with your heart and soul!
Are you ready to dive into the world of exciting anime games? Let’s get this party started!
A Chinese open-world RPG game that was released in 2020 and stays popular nowadays. What about the plot? Your character and his sibling wake up in an unknown place. It’s definitely not your world. Then, suddenly, an evil goddess appears and doesn’t allow you to go further. She even took your sibling away from you! Now you can choose your character – if you choose a girl, the goddess will take away a boy. Otherwise, she’ll take a girl. Now your mission is to travel around the world (It’s called Teyvat here) and find your lost sibling. It may seem easy, but if you thought so, you’re wrong.
Your character will wake up once again, hungry and lonely. When they decide to go fishing, they’ll catch an interesting creature: a little flying girl that knows a lot of things and adores eating delicious food. Congrats, she is your companion now! By the way, you can give your hero a name you’ll like.
Teyvat consists of 7 different regions, and each region has its god and element. There are 7 elements: anemo (air), hydro(water), pyro(fire), electro(electricity or lightning), cryo(ice), geo(land or stones), and dendro (plants). At this point, the game has 4 regions: Mondstadt (the land of the anemo god, inspired by Germany), Liuye (the land of the geo god, inspired by China), Inazuma (the land of the electro god, inspired by Japan), and Sumeru (the land of dendro god, inspired by India and Egypt).
Your character and his sibling wake up in an unknown place. It’s definitely not your world. Then, suddenly, an evil goddess appears and doesn’t allow you to go further. She even took your sibling away from you! Now you can choose your character – if you choose a girl, the goddess will take away a boy.
Some people are blessed by the gods and have the vision: a special accessory that will give you elemental power. It doesn’t matter where you are from: there are pyro, cryo, and electro-vision holders in Mondstadt, for example. Your hero is unique and can use elemental power without the vision. You’ll explore the regions, fight the monsters, open the chests, and meet the gods, adepts, and just outstanding people and help them with their problems. Each region has its captivating plot, and each character has its unique traits, appearance, and weapon. In addition, there are a lot of different inside-game and browser events you may enjoy.
After finishing requests, opening the chests (and so on), you’ll get some primogemes. Primogem is a specific currency, and players use it to get the characters they want. Genshin is a gacha game, so you need to be lucky to force your favorite hero to join your team. Awesome anime graphics, an opportunity to develop your characters, fascinating puzzles, cooperative options, and the lore details will make you fall in love with Genshin Impact! Also, that’s a perfect choice if you want to play games online, ’cause it’s free on Epic Games, and you may play it on a PC, phone, or PlayStation.
Angels of Death
Does the title remind you of something? The anime with this title is pretty popular, so you may know what we’re gonna talk about. The game was released in 2015 before manga came out, not to mention anime. Angels of Death is a j-RPG horror game with pixel graphics. Games that were made with RPG Maker take a special place in our hearts, there are a lot of masterpieces among them (Ib, The witch’s house, Mad Father, Hello Charlotte…), but since the anime is so famous, we’re gonna talk about Rachel Gardner (main character).
Let us remind you of a plot: Rachel wakes up in a strange building. The last thing she remembers is her visit to a doctor with her parents. The girl finds a strange room after exploring the territory. There is a gadget that asks her strange questions. After answering them, Rachel will go to the elevator, and the strange voice will tell us that she is a new prey now. The heroine must escape the building, running away from maniacs who are the owners of the 6 floors. Will you help her this time?
Anime tells us more about Isaac’s life, while the game drives us into the atmosphere of horror. You need to run from maniacs and solve all the puzzles yourself, so you feel the tension as well as the characters did in anime. (We think that the game is better, to be honest, but tastes differ).
This is an American visual novel game that might seem like a dating simulator but is a horror. Your character is a schoolboy whose school year has just started. You have a beautiful childhood friend, and she is trying to convince you to join one of the school clubs.
Doki Doki Literature Club
This is an American visual novel game that might seem like a dating simulator but is a horror. Your character is a schoolboy (you may give him a special name) whose school year has just started. You have a beautiful childhood friend, and she is trying to convince you to join one of the school clubs. You are lazybones, so it doesn’t sound good. However, Sayori is pushy, and this girl forces you to come to her club after classes. She is a member of a literature club where 4 beautiful girls read books, writes poetry, and have fun with each other. Our character decides to join after all.
Sayori is an extroverted, fun girl, who may seem clumsy, but she is a very good and supportive friend. Yuri is shy and calm, and she loves tea and horror novels. Natsuki is a tsundere who adores baking, cute things, and manga. Monika is the president of the club, a responsible and serious girl, and plays the piano. During the game, you have to romance one of the girls, spend time with her, and write poetry with words you would like, etc. It all felt calm and nice until the day of the school festival came. Then, a terrible thing happens, and after that, the game will start again from the beginning, but the girls will behave differently. In the end, one of the girls will go crazy, break the 4th wall, and will insist on staying with her forever. You’ll have to stop her and save the literature club! If you like visual novels, but they all look the same, try this one. You won’t regret it.
That’s all recommendations for today. The games from this list are absorbing and intriguing. You don’t even know the moment you’ve joined the fandom. Anyway, good luck! Hope you enjoyed the games!
