  1.  oooh this look very classic turn based like. I dig it!

  2. All I want is more "Dark" themes.

    Need a knuckles equivalent of sonical dark.

  3. I dunno why, I played Mania yesterday and somehow had more fun with it than I had in a long while. Maybe is the music with headphones. That makes me hooked to a game like nothing

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      The soundtrack is definitely one of the best parts of Mania.

      Like, one of the things i loooove to do in many sonic games is play matching the music, like hitting a spring in the beat, or entering a loop in a build up, I just love doing that stuff, if you know what I mean.

      Like i feel i am the only one who likes doing that lol

  4. i drew aerith

     

    Aerith.png

  5. Playing the OG FFVII cuz why not  I don't have any way to play the remake and i don't play the original since 2015

     

    ... Am I the only one who uses just the same three people throughout the whole game? (Cloud, Tifa and Barret)

    1. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      How fitting, since they’re three of the main people you plays as in the Remake.

    2. Zaysho

      The only thing I remember about playing the original over 15 years ago was that I had a tendency to switch up my team because I wanted to use all the characters (which is more or less how I always play RPGs). I think my mainstays were usually Vincent or Red XIII for a good chunk of the game. I'd like to go back to it and see how I feel about it since I could never be bothered to finish it.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      Those were my three mains, tho I’d swap Tifa out between Aerith and Red often.

    4. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Sometimes I switch Barret to Aerith, used Red XII a bit but I couldnt care less about Cid, Yuffie and Vincent. They feel extremely  insignificant aside from their stories, like just extra playable characters with no much to it.

  6. Aerith in the OG FFVII seems kinda selfish, she always gives credit to only Cloud and while she is friends with Tifa there is this feeling she tries way harder to make her jealous. Gotta say, Jessie as thirsty as she is in the remake is more likable than Aerith in the original to me. Maybe is the non expressive tiny polygons and the fact that we can't really tell what are their emotions.

     I'm glad the remake made Aerith absolutely perfect.

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Aerith being kind of a bitch is way preferable to her being literal cardboard in later appearances. 

    2. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      True, Aerith in Advent Children is awful, but OG Aerith pales in comparison to remake Aerith to me. And she was still good, but remake Aerith is a whole new level.

  7. Ffviir ending good

    But made me feel hollow

  8. Oh really? Wasn't she talking about a personal project? Or maybe Tangle and Whisper? Starline? Lol If that's the case then please be a non stereotypical good guy lol
  9. People who just want female characters to be a love interest, not fight, not develop, not interact with other characters, not do anything aside of be thirsty for the main character confuse the hell out of me. I would like if female characters felt human or like, likable, thank you very much. Including Amy. She is young and all, and has a puppy crush on Sonic, but this can't be her entire shtick, that is just a disservice for ANY female character.
  10. Generations is just the worst in terns of choosing stages.

    Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Speed Highway, City Escape Seaside Hill, Crisis City, Rooftop Run Planet Wisp....

    All of these stages are so... SO vanilla. There is nothing that really stands out, they just chose the most popular stages instead of actually choosing some good variety

    There is basically FOUR city stages plus two industrial ones.

    If i had to choose I would do this

     

    Green Hill - first level

    Hill Top - mountains  (Hill top and Green Hill are pretty different if you think about it)

    Carnival Night - casino (use proto track)

    Final Egg - base

    City Escape - city

    Hang Castle/Mystic Mansion - haunted level

    Kingdom Valley - ruins

    Windmill Isle - village

    Aquatic Park - water park

     

    What would be your choices?

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Green Hill, Chemical Plant, (Stardust Speedway), Hydrocity, Lost World, City Escape, Hang Castle/Mystic Mansion, Kingdom Valley, Rooftop Run, Planet Wisp. So honestly not that different 

    2. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Honestly Hang Castle would already do wonders for the stage list lol

    3. JezMM

      JezMM

      I mean, when you're making a greatest hits game, you choose the greatest hits. I actually think they made really good choices with the stages for choosing what would be the most memorable for those who enjoy those games, and while on PAPER there are a lot of shared tropes, they do a good job to make them different. The four city stages are really different too, with Speed Highway and City Escape being very different in feel (and both being way, way too iconic to not include), while Crisis City turned up the emphasis on lava to make it into a firey stage while Rooftop Run added the festival theme and touched upon the air fortress theme just a little for good measure.

      I feel the only stage I'd swap out in Generations personally would be Seaside Hill - since I'm personally not a fan of Heroes, I feel it's a worthy sacrifice to choose a "for variety" stage over a "for iconicness" stage, and agree with your selection of Hang Castle for that purpose. Having said that, Sonic Heroes was the entry point for many younger fans due to it being the first multi-platform Sonic - Seaside Hill is THEIR Green Hill.  And to be honest, again, the team did a great job by dialling up the oceanic themes and turning it into a water stage.

      On my dream list as well, I GUESS I would do Twinkle Park for Sonic Adventure, using the opportunity to put a bunch of Casino trope things into Classic Sonic's stage, while including a city area and the iconic skyscraper run into Modern Sonic's stage.  But you could do this the other way round just as well - put a bit of Twinkle Park into Speed Highway.  Having said this, the Casino Night DLC is very fun as is and does cover the casino trope as is.

       

      Can't say I'm a huge fan of your list.  Hill Top would be way too similar to Green Hill one after another aesthetically speaking and tbh Chemical Plant & Casino Night are way more fun AND iconic. Also not a fan of how bottom-heavy it is on watery-ruins aesthetic stages you've got for 2006/Unleashed/Colours at the end. While the stage itself was a bit underwhelming, I do think Planet Wisp is the perfect choice for the final stage - mixing the Green Hill and Eggman Base themes together.  Carnival Night is literally my least favourite Sonic 3 stage and on a pedantic level, it would annoy me to have a stage with "Final" in the name halfway through the game lol.

      So in short: Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Speed Highway*, City Escape, Hang Castle, Crisis City, Rooftop Run, Planet Wisp

      *With some Casino theme/Twinkle Park areas added for each respective act, or vice verca

    4. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Yea, the lack of variety really hurts the game. I get the levels are iconic, but yea. If I had to choose themes that weren't chosen.

      Green Hill - Obviously

      Aquatic Ruin

      Lava Reef

      Ice Cap

      Pyramid Cave

      Hang Castle

      Tropical Jungle

      Empire City

      Sweet Mountain

      And an original final zone to cap off the game. 

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Green Hill Zone

      Cool Edge Zone

      Spoiler

      ...If you haven't figured it out, Yes, I put in stages that have the same theme and order as the generic NSMBs world themes

      UwU

       

    6. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      I remember when the whole list of stages was leaked via 20th anniversary toys background, lol, and then in June they released the demo with Green Hill Classic, and Retro confirmed that those would be the stage list for the game... the outrage, lmao. That was a fun Sonic birthday.

    7. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There are way too many potential stages for me to bother creating my ideal list. There are so many options and different ways to balance the variety of themes. If I could have it entirely my own way, I wouldn't have included either Unleashed or Colours in the line up. Both games were too recent (Colours especially with it being less than a year old by the time Generations came out), and seeing those environments remade wasn't at all exciting. You could replace the Unleashed and Colours with a second level from S1 (because GHZ such a necessary but boring choice), S3, CD or Rush (or ShTH at a real push).

    8. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I don't think Hill Top would be much like Green Hill at all, if anything I see a more "Mountainous" take on the level. 

      I also don't think Casino Night is better than Carnival Night, but eh, is either one or another. Maybe I would keep Chemical Plant and Sky Sanctuary as it is.

      Final Egg is not my favorite but it would be better if it was it than Speed Highway. I would actually like Emerald Coast lol

      Kingdom Valley is my favorite ruins level in any sonic game period due to it's aesthetic, and Windmill Isle feels like it would be a good break.

      The thing about not being fan of the the stages,  is that they are not actually my favorites, more that I think there is more room for improvement, Planet Wisp also was not all that good for Gens' final level.

      My biggest problem are the four city stages, Speed Highway, City Escape, Crisis City and Rooftop Run.

    9. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I think the classic stages, for the time period Generations was released in, was pretty solid and gives you a bit of everything from the Genesis games. I agree that the modern selection was pretty lackluster and same-y though.

      I'd prefer Windy Valley or Lost World for SA1, for SA2 I think City Escape is fine but alternatively I really like Green Jungle or Metal Harbor (if I'm restricted to Sonic's stages), for Heroes Rail Canyon/Bullet Station or Mystic Mansion. '06 probably Kingdom Valley as it's the one I associate with the game's advertising, Unleashed I'd used Cool Edge, Colors probably Asteroid Coaster.

    10. KHCast

      KHCast

      Generations really is going to always be to me the game that could have used dlc the most.

      Also, while unlikely as hell, I always thought in a game about time travel, it would have been marketing genius if they included a stage from a future sonic game (in this case, Lost World but LW was too far off unfortunately.) 

    11. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Honestly I agree with Blue Blood that Colors and Unleashed shouldn't be in Gens, heck I would love a proper CD stage or a handheld one. Sky High? Sunset Park? Music Plant? Twinkle Snow? Dead Line? Coral Cave? Pirate's Island? 3 stages per era is so little.... 

       

      @KHCastThat would be awesome, but i think seeing a lost world stage would underwhelm everyone lol

    12. Soniman

      Soniman

      I'd feel pretty jipped if a game representing Sonic's history was excluding two main games from his history so I don't agree with that at all

    13. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I mean that's TRUE but aesthetically it would not be as fun to see them again than actually see a 2D Handheld stage

    14. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I don't know, I thought the choices were fine enough, they more or less picked the most iconic stages from the retrospective games. The only one I can say I really dislike is Crisis City. Planet Wisp too, but that's just because I don't like the Gens stage design and making 5-10 minute long levels. If they'd better designed Planet Wisp, I would've stuck with it.

      I suppose if I had an ideal list, it would've been 

      -Starlight Zone

      -Chemical Plant (Act 2 is just far too good to remove from the game)

      -Ice Cap

      -Speed Highway

      -City Escape or Metal Harbour 

      -Grand Metropolis 

      -Kingdom Valley

      -Rooftop Run, or alternatively - Jungle Joyride

      -Sweet Mountain

    15. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      If they hadn't picked the stages they did there would have been a lot of confusion IMO. the only acceptable substitutes I can think of are Emerald Coast and Kingdom Valley.

    16. JezMM

      JezMM

      I'm fairly glad that Unleashed and Colours got in, mainly coz Unleashed is my favourite 3D Sonic game and I LOVED what they did with Rooftop Run in Generations. In a way I almost wish they had done the stages in a mixed order and ended on that one, since it had such an amazing celebratory vibe to it with the festival theme that was added. (Although I do wish they had somehow done a night time section, even if only in the missions - feels a shame to not get to experience the very pretty Rooftop Run Night as regular Sonic where we couldn't in Unleashed itself).

      And... also it woulda just bugged me that it was only a celebration of Sonic's history up to half a decade ago, not the full history.

      But yeah, it's tragic we didn't get DLC just to touch upon some of the missed games or add some more trope variety with some extra stages for games that had just too iconic a main pick to even consider anything else like Sonic 1 and Sonic Adventure 2.

    17. Bowbowis

      Bowbowis

      If I were picking for diversity I'd go with:

      Green Hill (Grassy)

      Chemical Plant (Industrial)

      Stardust Speedway (Futuristic)

      Carnival Night (Casino)

      Sandopolis (Desert)

      Sky Deck (Airship)

      City Escape (City)

      Hang Castle (Haunted)

      Sky Troops (Ruins)

      White Acropolis (Ice)

      Pirate Storm (Water)

      Dragon Road (Jungle)

      Molten Mine (Fire)

      Starlight Carnival (Space)

      If the stage selection really boiled down to stage variety vs. zone popularity, I would vouched for a third option. As much as I and others have given the game a ton of (deserved) crap for it, I would actually say that going the Sonic 4 route of having zones heavily rehashed from past stages would had actually been the better option. That way you could just have neutral zones of different settings that you could archive as much material (stage identities, gimmicks, badniks, bosses, etc.) into each zone across the series as possible, popular zones or not. And in the context of Generations being a nostalgia trip/anniversary game, the rehashing would be absolutely justified.

      @KHCast regarding that "Lost World as a future zone" idea: Iizuka in some interviews said that a small team started prototyping work on Lost World when Colors wrapped, with the rest of the team going on to make Generations and then regrouping the LW team to finish that game. So maybe not an entire stage could be included, but I imagine some prototypes/concepts could had been snuck in as a special preview for what to expect for what would be the next game.

  11. I wonder how many days till we finally get that sonic announcement or whatever

    1. TheOcelot

  12. Today is cynical day in ssmb

     

    i will end this now

     

    i love the sound effect rings make

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Remember that time they got lazy with the Unleashed trailers and used the ring loss sound effect instead of the ring collection sound effect?

      Fucking ruined.

      And also remember the way that they botched the ring sound effect in SADX by using a compressed sample that played at a lower pitch than it was supposed to?

      Fucking ruined again.

    2. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      oh god i hate it never mind this series is fuckin shithole

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      finally you understand

  13. Sonic Lost World 3DS is actually really fun once you get good and its the most underrated sonic game ever.

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      no

    2. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      What is your fave levels from it?

    3. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Yes

       

      Mmmm probably all 2D levels plus Frozen Factory Act 1 and Sky Road Act 3.

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      Welp someone’s gotta have this take I guess.  Needless to say, I disagree 100%. Especially since the implication here is that the problem is the player not the game. That they’re just not good at the game, and thus can’t appreciate it

    5. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Nah, I think the hate the is overblown, but there really some really... 'questionable' levels in there.

      I agree though that all the 2D Levels range from completely managable to fun, so a good chunk of the game is still perfectly enjoyable.

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Understandable, there is some real bullshit on it, like Desert Ruins Act 3, Frozen Factory Act 3, Tropical Coast Act 3, Sky Road Act 2, but those are the truly problematic ones, and even so I didn't rage much aside from my first playthrough of Sky Road Act 2 which was a total pain.

  14. Dear god I missed Xenoblade Chronicles

    BUY THIS GAME WHEN IT COMES OUT IS ACCESIBLE AND GREAT

     

    ignore the sequel it doesnt exist

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      The sequel is also good, but I don't care enough for the petty bullshit Xeno fans have been heaping at each other since XC1 first came out and Xenosaga fans blew a circuit over it.

    2. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I am not a Xenoblade fan persay, I just adore the first game (one of my favorite games period) and don't vibe with the second (I don't harass fans of it tho, i just don't like the game)

      What kind of petty bullshit?

    3. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      It's always "my game is better than yours" and Xenoblade 1 in particular got complaints from Xenosaga fans for not being a "real" Xeno game because it had more shonen anime elements or whatever dumb things they were desperately clinging to because it was different from older games. I don't really care if some people don't like 2, because I get why to some degree, but saying "ignore it/it doesn't exist" isn't much different from what people were doing before XC2 became the series' whipping boy everywhere.

    4. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Ah. that happens with like... near every franchise ever.

      you see, I don't care about like not reccomending a game because that is just my opinion not a fact... "It doesn't exist" is harsh but is the same as saying "sonic game is bad burn it and use it's ashes to heat yourself" play it if you want... i like actual bad games lol

      What I don't like is when people harass others for liking a game over another. My dislike towards it is just personal, if someone likes it then... whatever i will just ignore lol

    5. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      To be clear, because I don't know if there's either a language gap or I'm just not explaining myself properly, I'm not telling you to like the game or anything. This is just reflexive from the amount of times I have seen similar sentiments that weren't being hyperbolic just because I care enough about the series and the studio's history to want to learn about it. Honestly it feels like I don't get a break from the Sonic fandom when I see it lol

       

      Though, doesn't matter I guess. I get to watch a small section of the Internet burn because Alvis has a Zohar necklace now like Pyra and Malos.

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      language gap maybe.

      Really? Honestly I just don't follow any trend, so I didn't know XC2 was some kind of Whipping Boy of the series. If anything I thought X was that.

      i honestly don't care if the games get connected, I was pretty whatever about Alvis having a Zohar, all i could think about was "Welp it looks much better than that stupid key he had"

    7. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      There's enough people still bitching about XC2 that that small change set them off along with complaints about the art style despite it more or less looking like what the original game was conceived to be. A lot of it is still stemming from people just not liking Saito's art in XC2 even though it looks nothing like that game bar the light cel-shading on the models.

      Again, Xeno fans are fucking petty.

    8. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I guess it be like that.

      The artstyle of XC1 HD is exactly what i wanted both XC1 and XC2 to look like so... eh lol

  15. KH Limit Cut: Riku is the key to save Sora

    Everyone: KAIRI GAME NEXT RIKU WHO

    1. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      unironically give me the kairi game next
       

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Kairi deserves it more 

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Kairi sat around for 358/2 games, let her do stuff

    4. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      "Deserves it more"

      Does nothing or doesnt even talk like a normal person to sora for the entirety of remind and when sora is away she takes a nap trying to find a connection to sora (no progress) for a year while fairy godmother appears looks at rikus dreams and tell him he is the key to save Sora WOOPS. 

      KH fans love to ignore that detail lol (certain hype man khyoutuber specially)

      Man I can't believe how many can get attached to a perfect cardboard box which did nothing so far aside from having one goal of being the love interest but here we are. lol 

      I wanted a Kairi game, SO FREAKING BAD before remind, a game which she explores the mysteries of Radiant Garden and her past with Lea by her side, that would be super cool, but remind came and said there is no hope for this one. She is there to fullfil her role of love interest.

      I rather see what Nomura is gonna go with all of this Yozora shenenigans thank you. 

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      The reason people want a Kairi game is to actually expand on her as a character and give her a proper personality. Riku already got four playable roles as is between Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, Dream Drop Distance and KH3.

      In the short time Kairi was playable in KH3, she had a different playstyle and fun combos.

      I'd rather have a game with Kairi that establishes her more than I'd want a game with Nomura spouting off more bullshit about his botched attempt at Final Fantasy 15 and shoving it into this series.

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Except Riku is the second main character, Kairi isn't.

      I know you are tired of Riku but uh... he is the second main character. Is Sora and Riku's story.

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      Riku is already fleshed out and developed. Kairi isn’t. It isn’t that hard to get why many want a Kairi centered title that fleshes out the latter a bit more 

    8. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Kairi is part of the original trio and yet didn't get anything but shelved for the entirety of the series, give her a game, dangit

      If fucking "Computer program to fix bugs BUT IT'S ACTUALLY SORA" can get a game, there's no reason for Kairi not to

    9. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      I really don't think it's too much to ask that Kairi finally get her own venture to flesh out her character and not get jobbed, kidnapped or killed for once.

    10. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Except it has been 18 years and nothing has been done with her. Remind is called Episode Kairi and she does nothing. And it doesn't seem she will develop anytime soon if she rather to be put on a coma to find sora, than living her life, and actually find other methods to find sora with her friends. Riku did that, why can't she help him save Sora together? Would that be I don't know... character development? Stop hanging on promises and actually acting?

    11. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      And not doing anything will fix this...how?

    12. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I dont think Kairi is irrevevant, I just dont think a Kairi game which she rescues Sora is the right thing to do right now. If anything a future game which Sora is not a focus is the best way to do a Kairi game. Kairi solo adventure with Lea and pals going on disney worlds and learning about her past and stuff. I would LOVE that! Like, aside from her friendship with Lea, do we really want a game which all all matters for her is Sora?

  16. dear lord pray for brazil cuz we have a virus spreader doing marches as leader that plans to do a mandate to cancel quarentine, what the fuck. how is he still there.

  17. What kind of music and what composer you want for the next sonic game?

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I don't want them to change ANYTHING regarding that part of the process. I like what that team has been doing for the past few years. Bring in Ohtani as the head but keep using a mish-mash of artist from across the franchise and fandom as well. Tee is a must.

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      A problem I've seen in the last few games is Ohtani tries to do everything. Senoue had the same problem and he has gone on to say he enjoyed games where he was part of a team, rather than a solo thing.

      Really, we need a wide array again. We need Ohtani, Senoue, Lopes, Tokoi and many more of the famous Sonic music team to make a full soundtrack, otherwise it'll sound samey and the team will get tired.

      Just don't bring back Richard Jacques.

    3. Sean

      Sean

      I wouldn't mind more musical experimentation. You have games like Lost World and Forces which are kind of mixed bags to some people (I like them well enough) but there are others like CD and Rush which are extremely popular and memorable, and haven't been done since. Something that surprises me yet still feels like within the spirit of the series is all I'd like.

      but yes we need way more composers than just Ohtani. He's nowhere near my favorite so I want others to pick up the slack where he falters.

      I was about to say, I would love if they tried something more 90's, like Sonic CD both JP and US

       

      Wow lol

  18. Even if I am still waiting for a lgbt rep thats good at least phoenix and edgeworth got me covered

  19. Omg, that's so sweet and well done!

     

    SEE DISNEY YOU DONT HAVE TO HAMMER IN THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE 10 LGBT CHARACTERS THAT APPEAR IN 0.5 SECONDS

      Yeah but this kinda is just as trivial as they’re only alluding more than showing. I’ll be thoroughly impressed when Nintendo makes a game with a main character or side protagonist with a notable presence/role that’s lgbt. Still tho, at least Nintendo didn’t try making it a marketing point like Disney have been doing for the last few years with their “representation”

    2. JosepHenry

      This is trivial, but animal crossing is not a game about romance anyways the fact that it is here, in a game which romance is barely referenced to begin with is just great.

    3. Strickerx5

      I don't play FE but I thought that those recent games gave people the option for that with all their relationship choices?

      Thought that might just be tweeter fan art messing with truth lol.

    4. KHCast

      I ever rarely count “optional” situations nowadays where the player can decide between making them gay, straight or bi. It’s pretty novelty at this point go have in those “choose your path” games. Like, it’s great, but is that all lgbt people are allowed to get in video games? How about narratively set in stone canon non-cliche gay or bi characters with meaningful story arcs that happen include that detail in who they are. 

    5. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Those optional stuff is stuff i dont really count anymore either, and to be fair FE is still ways to go to getting good at it, but this is just meaningless added dialogue, they could have put prince, but they put princesses, not like an option, is there. Makes me think it feels a bit more genunine than whatever FE did at this point.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      Wait, iirc isn’t Ike bi or gay canonically?  

    7. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      this is cute

    8. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Yes kinda. He could even be ace, the problem is that it is not explicit enough to be super clear that Ike is lgbt, people will still try to deconfirm it, and Awakening didnt help by giving Ike a descendant (it could be from his sister but still, Awakening being the most extremely heteronormative game ever, i guess the intentions were clear). But FE Heroes WAS teasing him and his friend Soren as being romantic partners. but still teasing that people still went for "they are just friends"

      Also we have a canonically gay character called Leon in FE Echoes, and while he is pretty good, still is a bit of that flamboyant archtype. And Three Houese just robbed gay dudes outta the options everyone really wanted and went for the flamboyant characters once again.  One of them being a bit worse bi Leon.

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      Yeah that’s kinda the annoying thing with video games in general(though Nintendo is guilty of it). Even when they make a established lgbt character it’s moreso on the implied side with lots of teasing and implications vs just a normal story arc, or they’re just the stereotypical character role down to a t (see: BotW home designer guy. “Faaabulous yaaaaas” guy and usually the humor character)

    10. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I am just waiting who will have the courage to have a male main protagonist just be gay (or at least be into guys without need to be flamboyant.

      I think they can do flamboyant right, and it’d still be impressive if they made a gay male/lead character in a game even if he were. They just need to yknow, not revolve his entire character around that, and actually have creative/narrative integrity.

      I mean, I still maintain that I found the gay character in Persona 4 Dancing a genuine treat. He had a lot of things to his character and interacted with the cast in more ways than just “oooh gurl let me tell you yaaaas. Hey that guys cute”. Like yeah, he was flamboyant, and yeah, he flirted with Dojima, but those kinda just came naturally and complimented who he was.  Sure it’s still a overall done to death character trope, I agree even in these cases that it’s usually just done because it’s just so common and easy and status quo,  but it doesn’t feel nearly as creatively lazy when obvious effort and personality can be seen in them as a character. 

      The big issue stems from when game developers ONLY use that archetype, and it results in these characters feeling cheap and done just to check a mark. If the AAA industry made a story driven game with a fem gay male lead, if they’re written well, as much as id roll my eyes at them not really branching out of that character trope, if they’re well written characters in their own right, I wouldn’t make a huge fuss personally. And that’s coming from someone that’s gay, not feminine, and is still asking to be represented more in games, movies, etc.

      Hell, as a whole, gay men in general aren’t REALLY repped in video games all that much to begin with even with all this in mind. It’s usually mainly gay or bisexual women that get the attention in the game industry and receive lead or important character status, so that’s another reason why I wouldn’t be super annoyed if a fem gay guy got a lead role status

  20. Oh. My. God.

    Clear water. Animals appearing.

    Holy shit.
