Beacuse wen we watch anime we sit back and relax
RPG's depending on wat game u can sit down leave the remote on the floor or just walk a away and come back and nothing will change

Well i would say some animes are adapted from original games like Tales series and Fate/Stay night, etc.. I think games that are adapted AFTER an animation/movie is boring because you already know the main storyline (likewise for animations). I can't imagine having a game adapted from Claymore.. T_T

i'd pick ratchet and clank cause i know what to expect which is super cool riduculous weapons that do super cool stuff. and filled with action. while this orphen game i have no clue what its about but if it looks good and has good story and decent gameplay i probably would pick that cause i just like those types of games more.
for me all i guess i really like rpgs is cause of the story which is very similar to an anime storyline so its kinda like watching an anime since both rpg and game has such interesting/unique storylines and it basically has the same animation it is kinda like watching an anime. so basically without the storyline and design of rpgs i wouldnt even be interested in that genre at all

From personal experience, I usually don't pick up a game based on anything, whether it's anime, cartoon, or movie. I think the only decent game I ever played that was based off of a show/movie/anime was the Simpsons Hit and Run.

...It's because Anime Fans get attracted easily to RPG's that's anime-based drawings or some sort. And also, the graphics that almost looked Real + Anime like = Pure Addiction.

So, yeah, it's still on the basis of your instinct.

Because they have tons of free time. Plus there is not enough anime, specially for those hardcore otakus that watched like every anime from ten~twenty years ago to last year's. They need something to keep them occupied while new episodes are released. Fighting, racing, sports, etc. Won't fit in, they need RPG's 30~60 hours each. Plus their cheesy-full-of-cliche stories, anime-like characters, etc are exactly like the same they watch in anime, etc. Everything makes perfect sense.

Not all games based on anime or manga sucked...I mean, Super Robot Wars kicked ass. Even though it was a big mash up of different mecha anime. They managed to create a complex, yet believable explanation of what the hell is going on, and kept to each anime's respectful storylines, while merging them together without making things look stupid.

Anyway. I come here to ask you all. Disregard all other aspects such as your friend say's it's good, the media say's it's good, or whatever.

You're just out, to get a game, you don't know what game, you see say.. Two games. Ratchet and Clank and hm.. Orphen, a game based on an anime. You've never heard of either, but Orphen has an anime styling to it. Ratchet and Clank doesn't. What do you pick?

Also, thanks for participating, I'm simply trying to conduct a study, feel free to discuss it.


Well i think its the storyRPG games mostly have a good story but sometimes its crappy game play but i think mostly games like FF and KH is like anime related some how

FFVII was good but not the greatest but challngeing game
RaC is like action platforming or something some people dont really like the shooting games and yeah i like anime and rpg but the only RPG is FF and Valkrie Profile

way before I was into anime, I was into rpgs. its fun to lvl a character, equip him/her however you wanted, give him/her new spells and abilities, etc. That's why I like playing WoW. I have two lvl 70's not fully epiced out and don't care much if ppl have full tier 6s, cause those ppl have no life...

as to why anime fans are attracted to rpgs, I agree with the assessment most the ppl here have made. its cause most rpg's seem to have an anime-ish feel to it.

Majority of the good RPG are from japan..so of course their character may resemble anime character. Whether they meant to or not, i would think their intention is to make the character look cool etc. Don't expect them to use Simpson character..i doubt i would but game like those.
