    anime game Requirements?

    Uh Ive noticed alot of games that contain anime scenes and some characters, but does that actually classify those as 'anime games'? Or maybe its only classified as an anime/manga game if its based on an anime/manga? But then maybe the games not based on those things are simply japanese styled art games? I'm quite lost, whats what?

    LOTS of anime started off games and such. Also, animes spawned games.

    You can get a definition of "WHAT IS ANIME" in the anime and manga forum.

    You can apply this to both animes, mangas, and games.

    It would be hard to classify a 'Anime Game' genre because of a 'Chicken and egg' definition of console games and anime, what came first in the development?

    Some of the most famous and well known anime series are based on video games such as 'Pokemon' (Pocket Monster), 'Sakura Wars' (Sakura Taisen), and 'Arc the Lad'

    You also have cases where the video game is based on the Anime series (Ghost in the Shell, Full Metal Alchemist), and cases where the anime series and video games where co-developed together (.Hack, Serial Experiment Lain). Lately, there has been a trend for H-games and Dating Simulations to be the source of Anime series (Green Green, Sister Princess)

    Console games have had a influence in the development of Anime, as Studo GONZO (Hellsing, Full Metal Panic, Gantz, Peace Maker Kurogane) first had its start creating cut scenes for console games...

    You should probably consider 'Anime style' console games as the influence of Anime/Manga artistic style that is common in Japan...

    Ah I've heard a little about the Sakura Wars games, never really looked up into it though.

    If your looking for a good anime game and you like RPGs, go for Tales of Symphonia. I finished the game, though it took aobut 70 hours of my time.

    Yeah, 'Tales' has that almost scary anime field in it. The anime cutsences and the video in the beginning of the game, really awesome animation. .. . but it doesn't classifyas an anime game. I think if an anime is made into a game, (like many animes have) then it's an anime game. Other than that, games that look like anime, you know came from Japan

    Given enough time the only difference will be that one you just watch and the other you play. While I'm looking forward to the increased visual tech I just don't want it to be at the expese of game play and plot. Is there a difference? Sure, one is a game one isn't. All games these days are animated that's why they're called 'video' games, why make things more confusing. Anime, manga, game, good enough for me.

    Aren't those games based off anime T.V. series, comics etc? Though if the style of artwork ties into your question, it might be different.
