GoS is legitimately good though, its sequel, however, felt doujin-esque.

the only gay part is kaworu but all of hte main characters are kind of bitches (though they're different kinds of bitches, the whiny type, the cold emotionless type, the obnoxious type)

Can Kaworu really be considered gay, though? I know superficially he is pretty homo, and he was actually supposed to be based on Ikuhara (who's Anno's friend), but canon-wise, Kaworu isn't even human, and he isn't really interested in Lilim more than as a curiosity, like a scientist observing ants.
The reason Shinji feels good with Kaworu is because Kaworu knows exactly how to be likeable to any human, not even in a sexual way. If he had to seduce Asuka instead of Shinji to fulfill his mission, he would have done so.
The only other character that wouldn't fall for Kaworu's charm is Rei, who instinctively knows Kaworu is an enemy, and also Rei isn't a human herself.

>> No.5557424

honestly people try to do psychoanalytic examination fo the characters btu what's most remarkable is how each of the three manages to capture each sense of the word "bitch". shinji is a bitch, rei is a bitch, and asuka is a bitch. but the word means a different thing for each one. lol

Preach, brother. These kids today think showing any kind of affection to your bros is gay. They don't know, man. Hell, back in the day it was normal to give your buddy a good luck handy in the locker room before the game.

people who think the show is psychologically or symbolically deep are retards. this ain't a henry james or marcel proust novel. it's a cartoon with pretty basic characters and goofy misplaced religious symbols. theo nly things that make it "good" are the directing, some of the visual design, and the action/animation. which are things that matter in an action game.

not him, but why would an action game be good? every fight was incredibly unique. the whole game would be railroaded as fuck.
nge64 is a good example. it's not outright terrible, but very railroaded, little replayability, and more like a puzzle game.

I dunno, I liked the whole situation about Nerv having to deal with other robots piloted by humans (Jet Alone was remote controlled or AI).
I'm not saying it adds any vital part of information to the actual series, but it doesn't contradicts anything either (as is the case with GoS2 which is mostly fanfiction-tier where shinji can date kaworu and shit)

>little replayability
well, the main attraction of Eva 64 is that it's the only game that faithfully recreates the action scenes in the series and lets you control the evas without it being an RPG, VN or something like that.
It has some replayability, depending on how much you care about it. Unlocking every single special attack can take some time. Also a few missions having slightly different outcomes depending on your actions. There's also the simulation mode.
>and more like a puzzle game.
Genuinely curious, how exactly is it like a puzzle game?

>> No.5559998

Not him but in reality, it's not that absurd to want an action game. The series is notorious for other aspects, yeah, but action still comprises a large portion of Eva. To say that asking for an action game is "low IQ" is like saying that asking for a burger at a pizza restaurant is "imbecilic". It's actually worse really. Action is an expected genre of a large majority of adaptation games. Even if it's something like a literal book, it's almost subconsciously expected for it to receive some form of an action game adaption, and in most cases that's exactly what it gets. It's really more odd to want an interacting novel than an action game actually.

>> No.5560008

maybe puzzle game isn't the best wording, but
>mash these buttons in the correct order to instantly win
>aim really carefully to instantly win
>move the camera around and then press the right buttons to instantly win
then you get the few missions where it's a pseudo-fighting game with very simple combos with grapple attacks that devolve into button mash until your fingers break
it's not a very complex game. once you figure a mission out there's no variation, which is why the whole ng+ cycle is kinda pointless even if there's more content. it's still the same railroaded game.
I generally enjoyed it though.

Right, the angel (actually SoL, Lilith) soul is her personality, the body is a clone of Yui, but Yui's soul is inside Eva-01 (which is a clone of Lilith).
Rei recovers her memory as Lilith toward the end, when she finally rejects Gendou, and goes back to her original body.

Back in 1999, the western Eva fandom was still in their baby steps. EoE didn't even get an official western release until Manga Films' release in 2002 or 2003.

Because the idea was to make a visual novel.
The "normal" Eva video game was released on N64.
