The adult I am takes care of most things real life. However my inner-child is a GAMER!!

I've grown up playing RPGs and reading a lot of good Western fantasy fiction. My son, OTOH, grew up with Nintendo playing Link and FF...these over-the-top and often nonsensical characters and stories seem normal to him and he enjoys them. They just seem like over-the-top farces to me...shrug.

 

I tried the game anyway this past weekend once I found out all you had to do was create an account and DL the client without committing to pre-order. Other than some inexplicable random crashes to the desktop, it looks polished and well-done.

 

I found a well-crafted game with a lot of depth... and an annoying little child race who look even more ridiculous when they appear in a gray-haired and bearded version. I know...it's fantasy and somehow I can tolerate orcs, goblins, vampires, zombies etc... there is just something about this particular brand of fantasy that seems just alien and laughable to me... it ruins my immersion.

 

Those of you who are more accustomed to this type of fantasy world and enjoy it...have fun, it looks like a good game for you...just not for me.

 In real life you are able to filter out things you might dislike or don't want to see, same with games really.

Just enjoy that what you enjoy but keep in mind you are not the only person playing in a MMO world.

I can honestly say I don't have a anime-phobeia, in fact I luv me anime. on the other hand I agree with the OP on this I HATE child like race in MMOs, TERA was the worse/best example of this and admittly they ar enot as bad in this game.

I don't understand why we cant have a short race tha tisnt child like, so many games have done short races that didn't look like children.

on the other hand while I cant take them serusly I don't let it bother me as much cause at least they are not sexulised like in tera, I am playing and enjoying FF14 very much.

if the OP decide he dousnt want to play then that's his right I wont hold it aginst him, and can understand his reason for the most part.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

That's fine and dandy. Can the OP say he doesn't like them, personally, and be echoed by others with the same tastes? Iselin did not say they needed to change a thing. Neither am I. Just saying it is not our cup of tea. Or is that a bad thing, too?

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

I'm right there with ya OP, the game-play and systems are good in the game, some of the visuals are great, but where it falls flat for me is the whimsical cuteness.

Definitely not a case of Anime-phobia for me, I like a lot of anime, just not the type that features this type of look.

Death-Note, Akira, Ghost in the shell, Blood: The last Vampire, Demon city Shinjuku, Ninja Scroll and it's spin offs, Vampire Hunter D, The highlander Anime Movie, etc, huge fan of these movies/shows.

Some of those I haven't seen.  I put them in my Netflix list. Thanks for the tips.

I'm really easy to please.  I like most all of it but the most disturbing stories.  I can handle a lot but sometimes too much supernatural gore doesn't appeal to me.

I can watch Vampire Princess Miyu, VH: D, alongside anything Miyazaki, yu-gi-oh, and Avatar Air Bender is probably my favorite.  I would love to play a high class mmo that was based on bending.

Anyway, I love FF anime style as much as I do the darker stuff.  Going back to my favorite console games include Breath of Fire series, Chrono Cross, FF, Legend of the Dragoons and Parasite Eve.  Consoles are where FFXIV draws from, along with games like Tera, and many of the Asian F2P games.  I love that stuff.

Oh the imagination card...what imagination is needed for something already materialized? The setting, tone and experience is tailored for you in a game like this.

(red) Who said anything about wanting any of that in this thread?

I'd recommend the highlander anime first if you haven't seen it, it's a great movie, The death note series is really good, if you want it in short form, they've done a few animated movies that scale it all down into just a few sittings.

Oh and if you like anime and have yet to watch Ninja Scroll or Vampire Hunter D, you're doing it wrong :p.

It seems to me OP has anime phobia. Does not have to do with age at all. It's all about tastes. I am 39 and love anime and eastern art style.  Games like FF and TERA are very pleasant to my eyes.

 

 

Anime Phobia = raised in the Western World where the culture pushes adults to adult tastes. Big eyes, bright colors, little bodies is a visual recipe for child-appealing content. If you like it that's fine, but there are reasons why others do not like it.

 

It's funny that you think that anime is a "recipe for child-appealing content" because most of anime target an older audience.

They are often sophisticated, sometimes violent and frequently have adult themes, they develop complex stories including love, growing up and female empowerment.

And FYI the big eyes were inspired by the exaggerated features of American cartoon characters such as Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse and Bambi. This feature was taken because allowed characters to show emotions.

I could hardly deal with the small race (lalafell) back in 1.0 and did my best to ignore them. The thing that got me to just log off shocked two days ago is this:

 

I couldn't yet force myself to log back in and am not even sure that I will keep playing at this point...

I fully understand you OP. Guess it's back to Skyrim and Dark Souls for me until the next "hit"...

@Distopia, I cut my teeth on Vampire Hunter D, but I've never watched Ninja Scroll.  I'll keep an eye out for it on Netflix or Amazon.

@sudo - I don't get what is wrong in that picture.

OP just doesn't like eastern take on fantasy. its fine. for some people once you have a set way of thinking or image of how a setting should be, there is no way out of it. personally i was able to adapt well to both western and eastern fantasy. but for lets say star wars franchise, its hard for me to swallow anything that george lucas shat out after the 80s... just too different from what my perception of how things should be. 

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

I have always loved anime and I have no problems with child -like avatars. I have never thankfully been uncomfortable about them.

How so?  Unicorn simply signifies white mage nothing to do with race.

It isn't obvious to you? It will look ridiculous.

I have to say I feel the pain of the OP but not towards this game. Took one look and I fell in love!

 

I can jump into a game and if the art style or characters aren't appealing at all then I won't play it. I don't care if it's fun or not at that point.. If I cannot get immersed into the game then why try? I too hate the short folk for being weird but that's why I will just ignore that race (despite them looking interesting in the dark mage clothes).

 

I don't care if the graphics are AMAZING or anything like that but the STYLE has a huge impact on my thoughts for any game.
