Eh, I guess I'll chime in as well. Sadly, I'm not as much of a VN expert as some of the other people that have posted so far!

Tier 1: Umineko, Clannad
Tier 2: Rewrite, Little Busters, Grisaia no Kajitsu, 999, Katawa Shoujo
Tier 3: Saya no Uta, Doki Doki Literature Club

Also gonna throw in anime adaptations of visual novels that I've seen: Higurashi, Kanon, White Album 2

I enjoyed all the visual novels that I've read so far, even the tier 3 ones!

Surprised there's no Katawa Shoujo mentioned here.

I was also a bit surprised to see that! I feel like Katawa Shoujo tends to be a lot of people's first visual novels. That was my first visual novel and it definitely sparked my interest in the genre.

Play the Utawarerumono games

I realize I am not the VN EXPERT here, but they are good I swear.
Oh woops. Putting Advokaiser in my sig like this until I think of something more clever

I'll play the remake when it comes out since it's the first game, then play the other two that are out already

B8 discovered VNs in general through Phoenix Wright, so we're a pretty significant outlier when it comes to these things

(and even if you don't count Ace Attorney games as VNs, Umineko was also well before KS)

Board 8 introduced me to every non-handheld Visual Novel except for Umineko, which I discovered elsewhere and then spread here like a plague

Place hasn't steered me wrong so far! Especially never would never have heard of Fata Morgana. Which people should play.
Black Turtle did a pretty good job.

Ah yeah, I forgot that the age range for B8'ers is higher than in other communities I'm in, so that makes sense actually.

I've read enough not to want to bother with rankings, but my top 5 are Umineko, Ever17, Rewrite, Higurashi, and Steins;Gate in that order.

Haven't read one for a while though, Fata Morgana was over a year ago. Maybe I'll get to Chaos Child eventually.
Just killing time until the world ends.

I have also seriously slowed down on reading VN's lately, which is kind of unfortunate.

I have a local friend who swears by Underwater Ray Romano. Didn't know it was actually a VN. Apparently that's being localized in 2020?

No clue!
