Does excessive coomershit detract from your enjoyment of an RPG and its story? If so, how much is too much?
>>
>>2724465
Yes.
I was looking for a big and colorful JRPG like the ones of my youth. Xenoblade looked like the perfect pick, but the coomer bait ruins everything, at least for me if you like that sort of stuff in your colorful and wholesome RPG, more power to you I'm not here to spoil your fun or demand censorship.
Also, It took me less then 15 secons to read all of that, you dumb whore.

I don't feel strongly about this one way or another.

>>
>>2724465

>>
>>2724465
Yeah. Lewd games are only good if there is a sense of reward, if you give me the main heroine fully nude in the first scene then why would I continue playing it?
>>
>>2724465
absolutely, fanservice coomer shit always leaves a sour taste in my mouth
most of the time it's fucking cringe
the worst case of coomer filth ruining a game for me was Dragon's Crown, now i understand why all of it's fans are coomers, because normal people dropped it off
>>
The only one I played that had that crap was Witcher and as cringeworthy as it was, these parts were perfectly optional.
Now if fanservice bothers you in JRGPs, I don't know what you were expecting - anime can hardly thrive without it.
>>
>>2724465
Yes, and it's too much if it gets shoved into your face without prompting.

Anders from Dragon Age 2 is a perfect example of this.
>>
>>2724516

Why? Seriously. You could have picked hundreds of games and went for fucking dragon's crown. Fucking why?

>>2724659
Ignore this thread. Coomer is a low IQ buzzword for shitheels. You won't get a genuine answer besides more baitfagging.

depends of what's excessive, if we're talking about xenoblade 2, then pyra's design could be better, but nia's design in the late game is astoundingly perfect
>>
>>2724465
No. If a game is good enough to put me in the zone, fan service doesn't bother me.
>>
>>2724659
"Coomershit" is understood as oversexualisation when it makes no sense in the context of the setting - taking Xenoblade, it makes no sense that most characters, even shy and virginal ones, dress like strippers and whores.
>>

I'm not some mentally deranged, buzzword spouting neopuritan LARPer so no, as a matter of fact most of the time I hardly even register it.

It doesn't, because the male characters react as if that wasn't the norm - as we would. That's Coomershit.

There is no setting where sex isn't one of the basic foundations of existence.
>>
>>2724465
No, sexual content doesn't detract from my enjoyment of an RPG and its story at all. Infact, I embrace it and I think that sexual content flows naturally with a game about boys and girls going on an adventure.
>>
If you have a problem with sex in a game then you are indoctrinated either by the woke losers or the religious nut jobs.

Fuck you and your virtue signaling bullshit.

ALL video games pull my libidinous instinct into attention which undermines my ability to create and succeed. Therefore I can only conflate playing video games with cooming.
>>

Similarly to movies, explicit sex and/or lewd moments in video games add nothing to the overrall experience and only hinder the story. Not that video games need stories in the first place...

What does this have to do with varying levels of pornography appearing in your game? People who conflate porn with healthy sexuality are the real issue.
>>
>>2725053
If you have a problem with people not wanting porn in their games then you were either groomed as a child by pedophiles in online communities into thinking a porn addiction makes you "mature" and "open minded" or got raped as a kid causing you to develop hypersexuality(a very common mental illness in rape victims making them obsessed with sex,porn and masturbation as a way of reclaiming their sexuality that was controlled by their rapist) or both.(possibly by your groomer?)

I love coom in my porn games.

In my non-pornographic games, coom pretty much universally sucks and clashes with the rest of content so I'd rather devs refrained from it.

>>2725143
Dude...
>>
>>2724465
coomershit detracts the enjoyment. Potential defeat rape and ryona heightened immersion.
>>
>>2724465
No, and I enjoy them even more these days because of the industry-wide obsession with censoring everything even slightly risque. Games that don't cave get my money and my time.
>>
>>2724465
Eye candy and sexy stuff is ok:
>Fran from XII
It's more about the interactions than the appearance though. Heart porn > visual porn. Fran has a sexy voice and some flirty lines.
>Quistis
Some romance plots are ok if the story is actually interesting and maybe some reason to actually do it like the companion gets an upgrade.

At some point it's either distracting or tacky though and I'd rather just go watch porn or play a different game instead of having a conflict between how I'm spending my time. I used to feel the same way right when they started trying to fill all gaming magazines with tits.

Aggressive wokeshit versions of that stuff is even worse than coomershit though since they are just as venal if not more, and usually uglier, both in appearance and lifestyle/worldview.

They're in every game, even the games you like and claim are not coomer bait.

It's fun to simp over a character, but I want to do that on my own terms. If a game dangles a waifubait character in my face, I feel annoyed rather than appealed to.

I would prefer it if devs like Bethesda would just make good armour sets. It's not as bad as JRPGs but boobplate is embarrassing, not titillating, and it's made all the worse by how terrible/rushed their artists are.

You can cherry pick 8 JRPGs if you like my dude but that doesn't change the fact that the majority have always been """"coomer shit""""

I never said otherwise. Read my original post >>2724472
I know there was plenty of coomer bait in RPGs back in the day, especially for the PC.

What I said is that coomer shit spoil JRPGs, for me specifically because the games I played when I was kid didn't have these kind of things in it.
And I'm not cherry picking, these (>>2731663) were the JRPG I remember playing when I was a kid.
>>
>>2724465

Romance never was and never will be an interesting fictional topic, its only ever interesting in reality

Romance literature takes up over one third of the fiction market.
>>
>>2733187
Character interaction in general is usualy pretty high on any list of ''what do you like in rpg story'', or any videogame story for that matter.

A romance is only ever as good as its writter makes it outt to be but can still be interesting.

Not at all. The RPGs I grew up with had loads of babes in skimpy clothing/armor.

In a world of creative freedom I would say I can enjoy it at all levels. Non-existent, minimal, moderate, and extreme. As long as the game, at it's core is fun, it's a non-issue at worst and a nice aesthetic at best.
HOWEVER.
In this gay fucking world where people jack off to the idea of censorship and stifling the creations of others I'm taking up the cause of the coomers.
Give me string bikini armor or give me death.

On paper, no. It's fine, coomer shit can coexist just fine alongside story, characters, and gameplay. Some games even pull it off.

In practice, coomershit is often used as a crutch or an excuse for subpar writing or mechanics. Characters are weak and underdeveloped "but it's okay, they weren't SUPPOSED to be good, they're just eye candy fag, lol" is the fucking rasping gasp of this genre's production and writing. Additionally, it enables cringy, shitty writing in the future, because the creeps drive off anyone who actually cares about the game's quality by association with their crusty sweatgoblin claws.

Harem parties are shit even beyond coomerbait. Hyperdimension Neptunia, shit as it is, is the closest thing to a functional harem party, because the characters are at least horning on more than just the protagonist, and you get bitches talking about kickass shit.

Most harem parties are worse than Hyperdimension Neptunia at something, and that should always require a mandated workless 3 month delay, just so the devs can think about what they've done.
