Are there any huge difference between the anime and the game ? I really liked the anime (impossible to not cry), and I want to know if it could affect my experience with the game.

I was in the same boat as you, I watched the anime several times before I ever played the game so I had a "compare/contrast to the anime" sort of mindset when I played it on PS3. In the end, I thought the anime was a "very summarized" version of the game... almost all of the key events are in the anime, but the game is much more in-depth since there's like 100+ hours worth of character development in the game whereas the anime is 49 30-minute episodes, so ~25 hours. 26.5 hours if you include the movie.

Also, the game has DLC "Spinoff Stories" that... well, I have no idea what they entail at this point because PSN has been down during the entire time Clannad has been out. Access to each of the Spinoff Stories (there's over a dozen) is unlocked as you play through the main game and After Story, I'm looking forward to checking them out soon hopefully.

Wow 100+ hours. Too bad I don't understand Japanese at all. Guess I'll have to play a PC modded version (if there is any) . Thanks for the reply anyway .

But there are visual novel games that have like say RPG gameplay, and like Toradora Portable has a platformer fighting mini-game. Though even just making decisions to alter the story can be considered gameplay in a sense.

A game is a game if it's available on a game system or even a handheld.
With Heavy Rain, they took a chance, a risk if you will. It involved a lot of publicity, public boasting from David Cage and the backing of Indigo Prophecy fans. With Clannad, I doubt the game will receive as much support as the former, but I am still hopeful for future VNs.

Thanks to a good friend of mine, I got the english PC version of the game. Oh boy, some paths of the game are even more heartbreaking than the anime .

Anyway, does the PS3 version have exactly the same choices as the PC version ? If so, I'm sure I'll buy the PS3 version to pay my debt to Key for making such a good novel.

I know. The 'english' version I have is just a patched version.
I want to know if the choices are the same for the Japanese PC version and the PS3 version.

LOL, I think YOUR one of the few guys that imports this game coz of the story:P
most ppl will just get the trophies as fast as posseble, same here got a copy coming, won't bother with the story...

ow well, we'll always have ppl that "just don't get" why ppl spend so much money on games just for trophies...
