>JRPG with generic fantasy setting>Random encounters include cars and floating laptops for no reasonWhy does Japan do this?
because its cool and why notnext thread
>>2981260they are just terrible at mature gaming, its all kiddie shit
>>2981260Todd Howard of all people actually talked about this in one of the interviews, fast-forward to 3:20:https://youtu.be/4QUtu8rLzK4?t=200
>>2981260Those Japs be WHACKY! They were never good with LOL so random! humor.
>>2981260So this is why they said it had monster trucks>>2981277DUAL ORB 2 a /vr/ meme, pretty sure op is being disingenuous because the intro has some guys in a sci fi setting talking before going to fantasy
>>2981272people hate Todd because he tells the truth.
>>2981260>>2981265After 40 hours of IT a week I would maturely and genuinely enjoy the opportunity to nothing personnel a laptop.
>>2981265>NOOOOOOOOOO HOW DARE THIS PIECE OF ELECTRONIC ENTERTAINMENT NOT TAKE ITSELF 100% SERIOUSLY 24/7 IT SHOULD BE GRITTY AND MATURE FOR MATURE GAMERS LIKE MYSELFGo back to TLOU you pretentious faggot.
>>2981260>assume generic fantasy setting>get proven wrong>cry like a bitch this is the game's fault
>>2981265>>2981275Why are westoids like you always so childish?
>>2981272it's funny because the japs were heavily influenced by Wizardry, which went full sci-fi fantasy in 6-8
>>2981272Todd was just filtered by what he doesn't understand.
>>2981624He's Godd to me but he does have a touch of that overly technical and mundane autism that needed some sort of LSD induced creativity to create Morrowind.He doesn't give japs enough credit for their depiction of real emotions either that frequently beat out N'WAH FETCHER HERO OF KVAST.The person can be more real even when the setting is stupidly fantastic.
>>2981624Godd's got good taste and high intellect. Jarpig moviegames are simply trash.
>>2981613The irony in using this quote to justify your manchild hobbies is that you're actively reaffirming the very thing the quote is mocking (the need to appear very grown up).
>>2981272And now, I consider this man, his company and the West as the superior creative force
>>2981794FFX was great wym
>>2983877The quote is about not giving a fuck, not about trying to look mature.
>>2984364No the quote is basically summed as "Don't virtue signal over your interests you retard". Like everyone who posts that very quote to farm "based" to justify jerking off to Mario princesses on /v/ for the umpteen time. C.S. Lewis was a militant protestant and would think you're subhuman for enjoying JRPGs btw.
>>2984518Not that anon but that is not what the quote Is saying and the guy you're replying to was more correct. You are seriously trying way too hard justify your baseless hate over some random JRPG because you consider it to be childish whereas others can openly find joy in experiencing. Just stop
>>2981272as much as I hate to admit, Todd is a professional gamdev with a true understanding of the art and knows what he is doing I kneel>Verification not required
>>2981260The Japanese believe that anything would gain a spirit after a certain age and Tsukumogami are inanimate objects that gain a spirit after 100 years.
>>2981260DUDE FANTASY LMAO
>>2981260So you can accept magic and dragons but not a car and a laptop?
OP neglected to mention that Dual Orb II whole thing is uncovering lost ancient advanced technology like sniper rifles and shit. This isn't even the norm of most jrpgs.
>>2986042The fuck it isn’t. Standard part and parcel of every JRPG. TL;dr, all magic is misunderstood science that was forgotten because the previous civilization let their hubris or conflict with a greater power blow them to hell. This of course was taken from Ultima and Wizardry and Japan expanded on it and try to make it their thing.
>>2986560Giant ancient mech is still different than LAPTOP
>>2986582Tech be tech
>>2981260>dual orb 2>ACTUALLY has monster trucksi thought it was just a meme, what the hell
