As a Visual Novel Expert, I spent countless hours pouring over the countless VNs I have experienced to give you the one true list of quality. No need to think me, save your applause I can't actually hear it anyway. Here it is:

House In Fata Morgana

Danganronpa V3 | Umineko..... QUESTION ARC

Steins;Gate | Fata Morgana Requiem For Innocence

Virtue's Last Reward

Ace Attorney 3

Zero Time Dilemma (2Complex4U) | Ace Attorney Dual Destinies

Umineko """""Answer""""" Arc | Super Danganronpa 2

999 | Ace Attorney 1

Danganronpa

Ever17

Apollo Justice | Ace Attorney 2

Hotel Dusk

Doki Doki Literature Club | Long Live The Queen

REMEMBER 11 | Ace Attorney Investigations 1

The Analogue games probably go around here

Most of the top VNs aren't even on this list... Can't believe you don't even have Majikoi, translated by great board 8 user Dowolf.

From stuff I've read:

Tier 1: Fata Morgana, Higurashi, Ever17, Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth

Tier 2: Muv-Luv Alternative, Little Busters, 999, Virtue's Last Reward, Danganronpa

Tier 3: Danganronpa 2, Zero Time Dilemma, Chaos;Child, Fate/Stay Night, Cross Channel, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (this tier is still pretty good)

Tier 4: Phoenix Wright, Umineko, Symphonic Rain

Tier Bad: Muv-Luv

I don't really consider the Utawarerumono games VN's, but they're listed on vndb so whatever

Edit: Oh I didn't read the VN's but attempting to judge off the anime adaptations (which is a bit sketchy), you could add the following:

Tier 1: Steins;Gate, Clannad

Tier 2: Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Utawarerumono

Tier 3: Kanon, White Album 2 ~Introductory Chapter~

Tier 4: Amagami

Tier Bad: Air

Hell, strictly speaking I never finished Higurashi and that's in tier 1. Though in that case it's because I'm waiting for chapter 7 and 8 to be released on Steam so I can just read the whole thing at once >.>
