Do you like the orgasm sounds that the women (and sometimes men) make in JRPG's. I find it incredibly silly, tasteless, and embarassing, and on Star Ocean I muted the voices. While I am talking about FF, I'll hammer the SO example one more time: & why do they think it is appropriate to have toddlers make such sounds?
 
Do these sounds appeal to the Otaku sector of the fanbase? Do these sounds appeal to the general audience? 
 
While I liked the character Vanille, it bothered me that she was constantly making over-the-top sigh sounds, usually for no apparent reason. 
 
So what is your opinion?
 
// I did enjoy the game though - A masterpiece of both CGI, Art Design, Music, & turn-based gameplay //

What do you mean? Like the noises they make during combat? 

#4 Posted by Endless_Abyss (2 posts) -

I totally notices those noises. Vanille is very.. into it. I'm guessing she likes battle? Anyway, there is an entire fanfiction based on it. Let's just say Fang has some issues with said noises.

You're the messed up one if their screams/moans remind you of orgasm sounds, not the game.

I bet you did this so your Mother didn't think you were holed up in your room making orgasm sounds.

You mean the high-pitched squeals whenever a female is hit? I haven't played FF XIII, but I've never really thought about it. I guess it blends in with the rest of a JRPG's craziness. Or maybe it fits the childlike voices and appearances of JRPG characters. Perhaps you're just thinking about it too much and now have caused me to think about it too much...

This thread is so wrong in so many ways.

#10 Posted by supermike6 (3530 posts) -

I think it's hot. 
 
....I mean, I don't notice it. Ever. What are you even talking about?

You have obviously never given a woman an orgasm

Lucky him, he also managed to save himself from the horror of hearing Lymle and Sarah's voice acting. AAAARGH! That stuff is horrible!

I found that random pirate noise in the middle of your post unsettling.
#22 Posted by HarlequinRiot (1098 posts) -

It's something that I've noticed in a lot of Japanese games and anime. It definitely does bother me, just because it always seems unnatural and a little weird.

To be honest, the whole Vanille summon special attack thing is pretty ridiculous.  It doesn't take much imagination to see what they were going for.

#25 Edited by afrofools (1313 posts) -

Whether you want to call them Orgasm sounds or not they are fucking ridiculous, and no I don't play in my room, I play in the living room. How can you not notice these sounds, and I'm not even talking about the battle squeals. I'm not perverted for fuck sake. Do you like these sounds or not? What in the hell are they doing in the game?  I am not some crazy person the gets off on cartoon characters - just so you know if you think I am some sicko for noticing.
 
@xaLieNxGrEyx: How did you know, who sent you! - Seriously, just because real people don't sound like that when they are doing it, doesn't mean it kind of sounds perverse. 
@FluxWaveZ: Dude, there is no way I am going to play that, but I'm glad you get the point. 
 
EDIT: Forgot to write "not" in the last sentence of my ramble - HA!

#26 Edited by Mr_Skeleton (5135 posts) -

It wouldn't be a JRPG without young girls with big breasts that barely wear anything and moan every time something touches them.

#27 Posted by Video_Game_King (35838 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: 
 
That's raging? It looks like they cut out 80% of the orgasm, and she just bent back to scream for half a second.
#28 Posted by DonChipotle (2693 posts) -

I don't equate grunts and noises to be orgasm sounds because that's not what orgasms sound like. Also they aren't just in JRPGs.

30 seconds onwards is awesome. With some drums it could be part of a Boards of Canada track.

Japanese game developers (and whatever you call the people who make anime) simply have no idea how human beings interact.  It's hard to even chock it up to cultural differences, because actual Japanese people don't act like that.  It's just some bizarre, overbearing, and unnecessary flourish used to communicate subtle emotions.  Maybe it's some vestige of a more rudimentary media through which natural behavior was more difficult to portray.  Who knows.

Vanille whilst casting. Oh god...

#34 Posted by TooWalrus (13130 posts) -

I'm playing that game right now. Like, right this second, it's a cutscene. I'm gonna say, Vanille totally sucks, but the rest of the game is quite good. I like it way WAY more than I thought I would.

#35 Posted by afrofools (1313 posts) -
@Spoonman671: Nice explanation. Japanese people I have met are normal people, but maybe those that are game developers retain the immaturities of their youth. It's a mystery.
#36 Posted by xaLieNxGrEyx (2605 posts) -
@afrofools:
I highly respect your response to that 
 
And your right, I was just given you a hard time lol  
 
They do sound a little preverse, really only vanielle
#37 Posted by SomeJerk (3130 posts) -

There's far less sexual sounds (TO YOUR EARS) in the Japanese FF13. Vanille sounds decent, not "ok your character is the cutesy young girl" voice-acting you'd expect.
 
The localization could have been a bunch better in direction.

Not all anime is like that

You must think tennis is really hot then.  You can jerk off to the Australian open, it's on ESPN2.

It's the reason why I picked vanille as my healer.

You sound a little too angry and defensive, there fella. It's OK though. Vanille squeals are quite delightful. ;)

I'm not into tennis chicks, cheerleaders on the other hand... ;) Do you jerk off to the Australian open? Actually I don't want to know :)
#44 Posted by Beforet (2911 posts) -

This thread has done nothing but cement my resolve to play this game.

I/He need/s to protest, I was being ganged up on with incorrect accusations.

If I want orgasm sounds, I'll just listen to my neighbors through the wall of my condo bedroom on the nights that they aren't having 2AM shouting matches and arguments.
 
I wish I was joking.  I have no idea what's going on next door.

#47 Posted by Tyashki (211 posts) -

Its presumably simply part of the greater Japanese   Moé trend.

Sorry to hear that :( 
 
When you get a house made these days you can ask for special soundproofing in your walls, I think it is mostly foam. Too bad Condos are not often fitted with them. I used to have some crazy inbred types renting next door that were having shouting matches with themselves and anyone else they came across constantly, they literally bombed everyone in the streets letterboxes, - luckily I don't have one ;P 
 
Have you tried pushing all your furniture up against the wall or listening to some music? I guess it would be a big problem for when you are trying to get some rest. Good luck :|

  1. Make a blog about "orgasm sounds".
  2. Strongly deny any sexual deviance or perversion.
  3. Ask user if he jerks off to the Australian Open.
 
In all seriousness though the only reason I find it annoying is because it's one of those over-the-top clichés of eastern entertainment.

Yeah Vanille's battle noises are somewhat suspect. I can't think of many other games that have that problem though.
