It seems we both have different taste. And no, I've stopped watching any Fate related series since it doesn't interest me anymore.

Carnival Phantasm is a 2011 anime, and the manga was from 2004, again fate's been weird for a while.

I've never had any interest in Fate ever.

Sword Art Online is overrated and way overhyped. I watched Season 1 and didn't get what all the fuss was.

No surprise coming from you though. It was only good up to episode 9.

And that is probably why I felt it was overrated. I liked it up to episode 14, then I think it fell apart badly.

Dubbed anime is sometimes better to listen to than subbed.
For me, it depends on the setting and mood. In a non-japanese setting, dub often works better, but in an actual Japanese setting, I prefer subs.

I think this is an unpopular opinion so...

There are some really good dubs. I prefer the English dubs of Full Metal Panic! over the Japanese for instance.

Here, I add one and I'm not gonna expect someone shared the same opinion.

> I actually like RTPVX Battle 01

• Pink Floyd's The Endless River album (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Endless_River) is actually one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums, even though apparently most other people thought it sucked. Excuse them for not making their farewell album sound like all their others albums. LZYskeptic

Kung Pow (the original version, not the DVD version) is one of my all-time favorite movies, although most people hated it. Oh well. :|

Swords are an overused and largely blandly-used weapon, particularly with main protagonists. At this point, if you're not doing something really interesting with 'em, like Nero's Exceed mechanic in the Devil May Cry games, you should try a different weapon. Even if your character still uses a "boring" style, the fact that they're doing average fighting with a spear or nunchucks rather than doing average fighting with a sword is already more refreshing

Most RPGs are absolutely try hard and boring.
Anime is terrible.
Most people who like anime are cringey.
People who portray themselves as anime character never look like or have the wild, huge, out of proportion features (muscles or breasts) of their cartoons.
I'm not sorry.

@jweav8705 Fair enough, but if you don't like RPGs, why are you here? Also, believe it or not, the other opinions you stated really aren't unpopular. Otakus just happen to be very vocal about it.

Because I like the engine. I like seeing what people come up with. I like seeing people try to make their games as non-rm as they possibly can.

I like using it. It's like a game for me to figure out how to make things work. It's a lot of fun to watch things things work right once you figure it out.

I'm actually working on a rpg for my kid to play and I have very minimal experience playing them and it's really nice because I'm not trying to make someone else's game. And of I end up thinking that I have a good idea that's already been done, it doesn't matter because I'm unaware of it and don't have to debate with myself and say things like, "Well am I trying to make FFVII now, or is this what I genuinely want to do?"

Playing RM is honestly more fun than playing an actual game. RM is a game.

Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
That awkward moment when you're talking about thinking about writing a limited shop stock plugin for MZ and then find out you already wrote one...last May. My memory is so bad.
When I open my project and I'm like, hell yeah.
Some drawings I made in Lapis, one day I intend to involve them in some RPG Maker project.
* maybe two wall frames
*or some sprite flower tiara, or maybe it inspires someone to do something.
