I really enjoy the N64 one, for all its bullshit. Comparing it to the graphics of other games at the time on the system, it's actually very impressive.

Are you thinking of some other game?
Evangelion 64 is one of the best looking games of 5th gen, I don't think PS1 could have handled those 3D models.
In fact, Eva 64's models look even better than the PS2 games' models.

Defensive about what? It's true that it's not Clarke's best, but we were talking about how it inspired Evangelion (and Ideon). You claimed it had nothing biblical about it, and I reminded you about a part that actually explains that the reason demons are depicted the way they are in the Bible was because of some foresight by ancient people about the end of humanity. Of course it's not hard sci-fi, and I never claimed that it was.
not him, but Evangelion didn't start to be popular in the west until the late 90s. Probably early 2000s in terms of massive popularity.

>> No.6105572

First of all bible never depicted demon as winged red horned humanoid with pointy tail, I get it that the book explained that it was ingrained into human consciousness that demon like race will bring the end of humanity. But that leaves us with barely a connection to bible.

Secondly, try to point other biblical connection, I half remembered the book.

You can see mental toll of warfare for everyone involved, especially the main characters. But none of them shoved quotes from depressed Germans into viewers.

For me, it was the Freudian subplots that got me into the Eva craze.

I wish there were more games with such thorough psychological dissections, even only implicitly.

>> No.6105650

Every single fiction can be dissected for psychological analysis. Eva is probably the only one that blatantly molded its characters after Freudian concepts and not being subtle about it.

>> No.6105713

I haven't read the book in a while either, but there was a short tale released before Childhood's End, as a sort of pilot with a very similar plot, called Guardian Angel.
Anyway, the point wasn't that it needed to have deep biblical connections. That's precisely what people criticize about Evangelion.
I think the problem with the whole religion stuff in Evangelion is that people expect Evangelion to be some sort of accurate adaptation of the bible or something, but it's the other way around, Evangelion adapts certain real world religion concepts into its own ancient aliens lore. Adam and Eva? Sure, they exist, but they're not how people imagined they are. Fruit of life and Fruit of knowledge? They exist, but again, not exactly apples.
Evangelion even gets a bit obscure and pulls off shit like Lilith, who is only mentioned as the first woman before Eva only in some essays by some hebrew theologist from the 1800s or whatever.
Anyway, this doesn't mean Evangelion has "deep" connections to religions, that's not the point and never was. It's just that it uses certain IRL religion elements to play around, but it's always with its own rules. It is a sci-fi fictional work, anyway. Much like Childhood's End, that uses the common perceived IRL idea of how demons look like, and incorporated it into its own fictional world, explaining why humans thought demons looked like that.
People take Anno's "we used religious symbolism to be cool" from the interview with the kids at school as a way to discredit Evangelion, but the thing is, there's nothing wrong with "using religious symbolism to be cool". There's nothing to get mad about, it's just a sci-fi story.

To add to that, the whole adapting real life religion deities such as demons, was also something Devil Man did, which is another big influence Hideaki Anno had, besides Gundam 0079, Ideon and of course, Ultraman.
Next time someone says "Hurr durr cross explosions they mean nothing", you tell them: they're a reference to Ultraman, and Anno trolled you with something you wouldn't get anyway.

>> No.6109360

NGE is the Family Guy of anime. It's all about "references." In Family Guy you have a lot of cutaways and whatnot where something -- usually some '80s pop culture thing -- is casually dropped into a modern suburban community and played with a little bit for comedic effect. They're basically saying like, "Remember this thing? Yeah? Isn't this random? Bet you hadn't thought about this thing in a while. What a shock. Hope that gave you a chuckle."

In NGE, they do the same thing but with soft sciences and religion against a background of hard science. You're supposed to look at all the tech and monsters and think it's cool, when all of a sudden the narrative drops in something straight out of the Bible to make you think "MaYbE ThErE's SoMeThInG GrEaTeR OuT ThErE." Except these biblical and philosophical things don't actually have any significance here. They're just props.

Take the whole Spear of Longinus thing for example. In the Bible this is just a generic spear used by a dude named Longinus to poke Jesus' body. Why is this used as the name of an artifact in NGE? Are they trying to imply the angel Lilith is Jesus? When Rei throws it is she supposed to be like a "Roman" in some sort of analogy? Furthermore why is the angel called Lilith? That was just one of Adam's wives.

The answer is that they don't really signify anything. It's just "Remember this esoteric concept you read about once? Yeah? Isn't this cool? Bet you hadn't thought about this thing in a while. What a shock." And then you're supposed to be like, "Holy shit, Kierkegaard wrote about despair, and these people are despairing!" Except Kierkegaard wasn't talking about despair just as a universal problem with which we can all sympathize, his entire message is just that you're despairing because your faith in God is weak, which is a principle that no one in the series either embraces or rejects or even acknowledges.

Eva fans are two-faced and this thread is the perfect example. If you call it out for not doing anything with its religious/literary ideas the fans go “whoa dude, they were just doing it for the aesthetic, chill out.” And then if you do the opposite and say it’s vapid and meaningless they’ll switch to the “you just don’t get it” defense, or worse, they’ll start lecturing you on how you have to find your own subjective meaning in media.
