ofc if you mean taking the anime look/style into gaming can most likely work as any fantasy stuff.

But then agian not all will succed as well, either it won't look good (for the world in 3D space) most that have tried either becomes doll like or paper like creatures.

monsters are easier but anime, color, style would maybe be harder but then agian you got Yandere Simulator that cind of works but still have this doll like feeling.

I mean what game could honestly have a anime styled first person shooter? I could only see an anime first person sword game or something.

Well if you want anime styled games it's best to get a PS4 as that is the only one that really gets them (Xbox is so small in Japan, PC is okay though but Playstation is huge over there). They got a SAO game already made. Attack on Titan coming soon also (Teaser - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPaN3nR99n4)

There is a fan made AoT game for now though: http://fenglee.com/game/aog/

I can't see any anime game with a first person view tbh.

First person views in games seems like a western thing. And imo they feel lazy & kinda sloppy(?)

I like the Hatred one.

I am annoyed that people call the Hatred Dude a Serial Killer. He's a Spree Killer.

Oni was a anime-style game, while not completely FPS....

Shogo: Mobile Armor Division is a good example of an anime FPS.

They always tell animators who are going into the games industry to aim for realism and forget about anime. Apparently there are no jobs in it. The game development team I'm in is quite interested in defying standard ideology though. Maybe I could convince them to make an anime FPS seeing as we all like anime to an extent.

Shogo: Mobile Armor Division is also anime-influenced, but it's an actual FPS.

About Hatred, but keep in mind not for children -_- even if you are "used" to it.

I still think some will effect a player but some titles not as much like COD where its just meh another killstreak.. oh wait I don't care about these dudes they are only for my killstreak trololol get out teammates I want my killstreak ,_,

FPS games just have a generally different visual aesthetic overall.

Take stuff like Battlefield 3 and 4 (and now the new Star Wars Battlefront)... They're not sloppy at all- Just going for the faux-realism visuals by spitting out as many polygons on the screen as the graphics cards can handle.

That wouldn't work in an anime-themed title unless it's based on an anime that's already heavily CG'ed- Like maybe Knights of Sidonia (but that would be a simulator, not really FPS)

That's true, and I'll admit that the example I laid out earlier (Shogo: Mobile Armor Division) was released way before cel-shading became the norm.

But games like Borderlands, The Darkness II, XIII, and Team Fortress 2 show that cel-shaded (the visual technique used by most anime-style games) FPSs can be done properly.

I sorta mean sloppy in terms of controls. Then lazy in terms of animation. Like with skyrim. Imo, animation looks so unimpressive on your character & even other ones too. What I noticed a lot in Western games however us that I seems they focus so much (and maybe even too much) on the graphical quality more so than anything else.
Maybe I've been playing the wrong the games, or I'm really used to at least games with a 3rd person views controls.
But I do feel some sorta feeling where the game feels kinda incomplete on most pf them compared to when I play ones made in Japan.

But yeah I agree, I don't think it can work, in most cases anyway.
