games that are modeled after the anime style wasn't always good, i played lots of them ( use to ), but hate it right now. there are fews that were pretty good, but most of them really can't compare to western games.

-story
-gameplay: online and off
-characters don't looks like dumbass

these are the three thing i'll be looking at first when i see a game.
and jay, i don't care what u say about the RPG and xbox360 or whatever, but ratchet owns~!!!!

Edit: summery-----> anime games sucks, done lol

It should be for the story, but now a lot of people develop some sort of fanboyism and stop caring about the story and just like it because it is a game from a series. I think this is true for anime as well. People develop a anime fanboyism and start playing games, and even saying they are good, just because it is anime related. This doesn't apply to all people, but it is true for a lot, especially on CR.

Oh, and Orphen sucked ass, it was horrible. Ratchet and Clank (any of them) are way better.

(My own opinion not represening all rpg gamers and anime fans) Its true most anime styled games are shitty like orphen and oni and full metal alchemist games but the reason behind this is not the anime aspect or some other reason but really u must blame the producers because rarely does a spin off of a movie, anime, or etc. be a good game and i think the reason behind this is because all they want is the buyer to see the shiny title and well known name and buy it instead of working on a good game thats original and letting its name get spread and rpg's appeal to the me as an anime fan because i hope to actually hear a well told story from the rpg which usually does that as with other game genres u don't immerse yourself in the all the characters as much so what im trying to say is why i like rpgs and i am anime fan is because of the story

i played rpgs b4 i watched anime, but in general, most anime fans are loners who dream to be in a fantasy world. they dream of being a ninja or a guy with spiky hair and they just want to go on adventures with friends.

I wanna be a ninja


And I usually pick games out by reading reviews/ ratings first.

I started playing RPG's way before I got into anime. I like them because they usually have great storylines, chracters and great game development and graphics. =/

But as to why they're popular among the anime fanbase? Cause alot of RPG's look like/have scenes in the anime style? And most of the huge RPG's here in the US are from Japan, which could also be a factor.

Just my opinion though.

Hmm in my own opinion i think anime fans are attracted to RPGs because they see it as a good game to play with actions, the game designs/character designs, on how popular is it, or they are just bored and need something to do to kill time. Thats what i think at first.

Btw it depends on the game storyline if it sucks...then it fails a waste of 30-50 dollars.

The only anime games that don't suck are only the H-Games =P and a few others. I know SOME anime games suck but not all.

I like RPGs because they're games that have a long story so it makes the game really long which I enjoy a lot. Oh and Final Fantasy VII was my first game every. =P
