Unrealistic character reactions killed Japanese Anime and gaming entertainment?

#1Bayonetta_Posted 1/25/2013 7:36:43 AM
I was just playing a game on the Vita where this magic lady gets her head stepped on by another magic lady. Then seconds later she worries that her attacker doesn't like her. YOU FREAKING GOT YOUR HEAD STEPPED ON!

WTH IS UP WITH THAT JAPAN? I see strange odd reactions like this in so many things from Japan. Don't they realize it completely kills the mood. It kills any desire or interest I had in that character. Even in fantasy games you need some kind of realistic reactions.

Don't even get me started on how moronic romance is in Jrpgs. Takes like 50 hours just to prove your love then even so the two so called lovers barely act like lovers. It annoys me to no end how suppressive Jrpgs characters are when it comes to opening emotions. If it's a culture thing they really need to work on themselves or something. Not healthy to keep holding so much in.

-In a western games if I get punched my character will be pissed or hit them back
-In certain Japanese games the character doesn't always hit back and in some cases just take the hits (Which I find disturbing.) This reminded me of Eureka Seven when that boy let the older guy kick his ass. Freaking annoyed the hell out of me because the reaction is frustrating fake.

Taking a foot to the head is a sign of friendship in japan. Why bother with shaking hands when everyone in your country knows karate.

Eh, sometimes you want something lighthearted, sometimes you want something more serious. I wouldn't attribute it entirely to anime, since that can go either way with stuff like Hellsing (the serious end of the spectrum) and Saber Marionette J (the humorous side of the spectrum.) Still, I think I get what you're saying - a lot of the anime-styled games (Disgaea, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Trinity Universe) do wind up being heavily skewed in the humorous end of things.

Barely any modern Anime has depth. To me that is dead. I forgot the last time I could go deep into an Anime like I did with Evangelion and The End of Evangelion.

Most of those users in the link watch anything Anime related. At one time I was like that until I realized just how bad most of them are.
