heh, i once got a bit curious to see what all the neptunia fuss was all about and decided to download the game that at that time was most popular, this was still in my moral depravement period so without any though ti got meself a hacked version and started playing. Ended up in this silly level with a girl, some island scenario where i had to do something against opponents that held no challenge, this situation, while knowing that those asian games sometimes needs multiple hours before the game really starts, was enough to say, NO.
Yeah, the perv aspect usually isn't a selling point for me as the highly stylized faces are usually a great disconnect in order to consider anything truly sexual, nothing arousing about it at all, same with 3D models, now if it were real-life pics and videos then that would be different, but at that point, I'd rather watch a proper porno than have it in my game! ;)
And yeah, about the time it takes to actually get past the exposition and play the fuckin' game already, (Particularly with steam games as their shitty refund clocks in at only 2 hrs)
that has been getting longer, and longer as time went by, usually due to modern JRPGs taking on a bit of the popularity of visual novels that are pretty popular with the Japanese!
