Anybody else rather disturbed by the lack of adults in upcoming Japan games?

"y did no one argue about the lack of adults in ps2 rpgs?"

Probably because the "Kids" in those RPGs acted in an adult manner. It's hard to imagine most of the modern RPG characters being the ages they're supposed to be. They act more like 12 year olds than 18-20 somethings. They dress more like little kids too.


you really think so
I not sure about the design but I found that most of the protagonist in current jrpgs to act the same as last gen. in terms of personality (Allegrito, Capel, Edge, Juto, etc.)

Thats just what the japanese are into femmy teenagers, why not just go with female protagonists if thats the art style? I'd much prefer that, hell a transvestite protagonist would be fine, at least it'd be honest.

Gross exaggerations aren't a great way to make a point.

No, it's a figment of your imagination.

Is that guy in a game or is it a joke?

( First want to state that I have no problem with some cliches and I don't mind that Japan is obsessed with Anime art style. As a matter of fact I'm thinking of giving up gaming seeing as I'm not really into western games and Japan doesn't give a damn about older gamers.)

It's already bad enough 99% of modern 2012 anime is dominated by 13-15 years old feminine guys and hyper sexualized loli girls saving the world. Besides Yakuza I'd say again about 90% of their upcoming video games are underaged kids. Does Japan not even give a damn about gamers over 18 or in their 20s? Compared to back in my PSX Jrpg craze I now have not one Japanese game that interests me.

Btw When I say feminine looking I mean FEMININE looking. There is a difference between looking handsome, looking like a pretty boy and Looking like a feminine-female. Japan is really pushing male leads to look feminine-female instead of pretty-boy.

My question is this: Is modern day entertainment such as Anime, movies and video games in Japan even for adults?


1. Japan isn't obsessed with anime. Anime is only a bit more accepted there than it is in America. The only time anime is seen as a bad thing is when some people are obsessed with it way too much. Not all Japanese people like anime and not all entertainment in Japan is anime or anime-inspired.

2. 99% is a monumental exaggeration. There are plenty of games and anime that don't have sexualized underage girls or girly looking men.

3. Of course there's entertainment for adults, same as America. Different entertainment for different demographics.

Basically, you're ignorant about Japanese entertainment, like a lot of people in America.
