The Repetitive Chitchat wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 05/28/14 08:53PM View full history

Overview

Repetitive chit-chat can be found in many JRPGs. It's when characters say the same thing over and over again - usually with no variation. The reason for such a obvious problem is the lack of time for both writers and voice actors. A writer has so much story to write about that they don't have time to write more dialog for characters to say that isn't story. A voice actor has already so much to story to put their voice behind, it would cost time and money to record different variations of voice and dialogue.
