I must admit most games now are shit. I prefer games with good storyboard and quick leveling rates. I don't usually like RPG's because the strong will always be up there~ and the weak (or rather the newer players) will be trapped below their might ( =\ )

Nowadays RPG's are focusing on better graphics, which many people tend to favour. I won't mind bad graphics but if the interface is good i won't mind. I just want a good storyboard.

Also, what keeps me in a RPG game is the player's attitude. Although people put on different "masks" on different people, how they react to certain situations gives me and idea what they are like (1st impressions do count ). Although I put generalisations here, there are exceptions.

Why I think anime fans like RPG is probably because they can act out the anime characters they adour so much about.

For one, I loved RPG games way before getting hooked to anime. Anyway, true that some anime games suck. Orphen was rather boring in the long run, and Fullmetal Alchemist games weren't much (The Crimson Elixir was alright, but not really worth playing over and over). Anyway, I just play games based on fun factor, gameplay and story plot. Graphics usually come in last for me. As long as the game doesn't look terribly horrible, I'm fine with it, be it 2D or 3D. Anyway, I basically don't enjoy games based on TV shows and movies...They tend to bore me. The only anime based games I like so far are the Naruto Narutimeto Hero fighting game series (not a fan of the anime though), Jump Ultimate Stars, Gundam G Generation series, Another Century's Episode series, Code Geass DS, and a few others that had kept in interest in them. Okay there are quite a few but meh...I just find them fun...I don't really care if they are from an anime or not.

Because both situates them in an alternate reality, discarding their own personalities and gaining new found characteristics in the person they are portraying.

I played RPGs before watching anime...

I like RPG games because they have very awsome stories usually.. I dont like gameplay always.. and I dont like RPG cause of anime..

Its just RPG games are deep & rich ... u get involved with it and has awsome moments


Unlike fast paced games but I still play both anyways

...to me, i dont play RPG's for the combat system, the leveling up, the item collecting, or the dungeon crawling...i play it for the story...and anime type RPG's have good stories...take Persona 3 for an example....i have yet to come across another game, book or television show with a similar story...

lolz maybe i'm just too into anime. i choose games based on the game's cover. if i liked the artwork(read: if the artwork's look kinda anime-ish), then there! i'm gonna buy it. i've never been disappointed though. almost 95% chance i'm gonna love the game til my dying breath.(i bought legend of mana, suikoden, ff and breath of fire in this manner. i still love the games until now. XD) lolz

i think it's because of the art, so as the rest...

But I've always liked RPG's, so it's not only for animefans..

Why do people who don't like Anime like RPG's ? xD Almost everyone likes them (well, at least many people)

I think anime fans only go for JRPGs (Japanese RPG's), because the style and storyline are simmiler. I doubt that there are many Anime fans who say they're RPG fans who have played Oblivion, Mass Effect, Neverwinter Nights or any Western RPG (apart from maybe MMO's). Call it stereotyping, but that's what I notice from most of the anime fans I know.

I guess the RPG games remind you of watching but playing an anime itself with the same anime style sometimes.
