[General] Anime...Games?

#1
Hello, Dvoramla in the chat :v
I don't know how to explain this... but since I had a talk with some old friends and schoolmates in the past week, I don't know how to concider a Anime Game like an anime game... and what it's an Anime Game...
For example... One of them asked me if mobil games like 'Guardian Tales' are anime games just for the ilustration in that some characters have in game, or if games like the 'Overwatch' can be taged like anime games only for its graphic style...
I don't know if I need to explain more about this xd... Hello again Cry

In fact, I've talked about this kinds of things with my several online friends who play anime games pretty much on PlayStation platform. 
We discussed in detail the definition of anime games.

One of my most conservative friends argued that no matter how much anime graphics a game is made of, it is only an anime game if it has an anime series or at least a manga. However, most people did not express any objection to the definition of anime games if they consist of anime graphics.

With this strict rule from my conservative friend, I personally think anime games cannot develop any further. Thus, I rather think it makes sense to define this in terms of majority rule. Code Geass's Lelouch vi Britannia once said, "everyone loves their democracy."

Let's check out the Steam page for Super Mecha Champions. We can clearly see that it has an "anime" tag. For reference, the more users vote for this Steam tag, the better this anime tag comes out first in its store page. So, we can see that a lot of people voted anime tags for Super Mecha Champions games.



On the other hand, let's take a look at the Gundam Evolution released by Bandai Namco in Japan. 



Unfortunately this game does not have the "anime" tag. That said, if you play the game yourself, you'll notice that there are no anime-looking characters at all. Let's think. If Fortnite, a popular video game in the West, makes an anime series in Japan, will current Fortnite become an anime game?

It's not like that. The important thing is that when you play the game, you have to realize it is made up of anime art right away, so I think the most important thing is for the user to know immediately whether the game is an anime game or not. And how fast a user can recognize the game is whether anime game or not depends on how much the game's graphics are made of anime art.

Based on this principle, whether by majority vote, if almost all graphics of a game consist of anime art, I think it is most appropriate to judge it as an anime game.

In my eyes, Overwatch is more of a cartoon-styled game than an anime. In particular, in the case of Final Fantasy or Nier Automata, to me, they all look like a semi-anime game in my eyes. It's very hard to say for me that they are fully anime games, or simply anime games.

For reference, it is a little difficult to recognize the difference between cartoon and anime, but it is very difficult to recognize the difference between cartoon made/modified by Japanese, which is one variation of anime art or simply semi-anime, and anime. Most people who says Overwatch or Nier Automata are anime usually fall in these 2 categories. To recognize them fully, it usually requires at least 10 years of rich anime or anime game experience to be able to discern.

Here is the definition of anime art from Wikipedia.





Next time, I will create an article about history of anime games from early 1980s.
