Has anything almost ruined touhou for you?
« on: October 19, 2011, 08:21:09 am »
While being a fan of the Touhou series has there ever been that one thing that really turned you off? If you do share stories!

For example, something that almost ruins the experience for me is what I call "Touhou weeaboos" y'know like a vocaloid weaboo... but touhou. Their just awfully annoying to me. You usually find them on DeviantArt  (Man I hate that site). Another one is an attention whore-weeaboo at my school. As soon as she knew what Touhou was a part of me died. She also tried to claim to play the games, but ask her witch one she plays and she can't say.

Can't really say anything has almost ruined Touhou for me. Individual fans aren't going to do it, and sites I don't like I just don't visit.

It's like, OK, if I found out Hitler loved him some fried chicken, am I going to stop eating it? Hell no, I'll be like, "Well, +1 for Hitler, I guess."

Haha true.
I gotta say I'm probably just full of alot of anger and hatred. Now I wouldin't stop playing the games for shure. I've just kinda turned away from that part of the fan base (It happens to me with every game)  and I stopped telling people about the game because of it.

Maybe I just need to stop making people ruin things for me so easily...

Oh, dude, trust me - there's plenty about the fanbase to dislike, no doubt about it. Fortunately, most of the fans I have a problem with are all concentrated on a couple sites. I don't know anyone IRL who even knows what Touhou is, so I can't speak to the frustration of some asshat in my school suddenly liking it. I have reacted the way you have about people I don't like suddenly liking the same bands I do, though, and for like, a split second it'll make me question my own tastes. So I do get it.

I have no idea what could possible ruin Touhou for me. If it were just stupid fans, then I wouldn't like anything at all.

There is absolutely nothing that could ever make me hate any of the things I like.

Even if it was possible, given my completely laid back nature, even the most hated memes and fanisms don't even phase me and at times I even enjoy them. (ran ran ruuu~).

Even should the person I hate most in the world like something I like, it wouldn't even phase me in the least.

Not really. I'm primarily a Touhou gamer, so I don't spend as much time with fan-based stuff as others and thus can avoid the stupid fans pretty easily. Regarding the games themselves, theoretically I only need one game to keep me hooked, and of course I like a bunch of them.
The "funen" part of my name is Japanese, which means "not able to burn". I am slightly pyrophobic, so I tend not to get burned (literally, mind you).

I don't think anything could ruin Touhou itself for me. I have a very, very deep and personal relationship with the games and the world.

The fanbase does get questionable or downright incorrigible at times, but then again, when isn't that the case for a fandom? In the end, I can just ignore the things I don't like (NOBODY CAN JUST BE FRIENDS EVERYONE WANTS TO BONE EACH OTHER) and focus on the things I do like (well thought out theories and concepts).

Also, my stance is about the same as everyone here. I still like old stuff like Guren Lagann too; even though those kinds of fanbases do ruin things for a lot of people; even a couple of friends have been turned off.

This, mainly. I can't really say anything about the weaboo's cause I was one of them, and it wouldn't be right.
One thing that does disturb me, but wouldn't drive me away from touhou, is the massive quantity of "anon penises" raping the girls, or the gore-erotic pictures, or the weird positions; things like that. Then again, this would never ruin touhou for me. Tough one, Danbooru, though that's not enough to beat me  :dealwithit:

You see that up there? Yeah, that. That almost ruined it for me.

That and the many asinine pairings.

Koishi being obssessed with penises.

There are surely more buried in the past, but I'd like to keep them buried, thank you very much.

Oh, and on the gameplay side of things, "easy mode is for kindergarteners!" As well as those people who think that lunatic is the only true difficulty / all that matters / supposed to be possible for everyone. Hiss.

Man, I don't know what you guys are smoking. Fan fiction improves Touhou, especially the truly awful fan fiction. I should know, I've written plenty of bad fan fiction. Plus it's great for dramatic readings.

I want to say that actually, I meant the fictions that are only 4 leters long. I don't even mind cliches, memes, or anything like that when it comes to fan fics. But people, it IS okay to write more than a setence per chapter ;_;

So, we should go all Half-Life: Full Life Consequences on them?

Gameplay-wise, the MOF/SA/UFO continue systems are just rage-inducing at times. I elect to continue, and I'm severely low on resources (especially later on in game). I restart the game, and hooray, I have to run the whole damn thing again. It seems as if the game wants me to 1cc it before I can play it like an arcade game (the first time, just beat the game regardless of how well I do or how many credits I take, then improve it as a whole in subsequent runs). The supporters of the restarting mechanism (mostly from the competitive Lunatic camp) don't really help there.

As far as fandom is concerned, there are quite a few but others have covered it well enough.

Lastly I would add ZUN's stern refusal to sell the games outside traditional doujin channels as a critical souring point. It seems that (A) the success of Recettear, Chantelise, and the Gundemonium series on Steam after export to western markets has completely bypassed him; (B) he is further unaware of the changing market trends in terms of indie and doujin games, especially in NA, EU, and AU; and/or (C) the stubborn Japanese island syndrome has affected his view on the issue, which led some western fans to conclude he is a xenophobe.

Bad as in the writing itself is bad, not the story.
It's really hard to enjoy when it's written in such a strange manner that I can't understand what is going on.

Reworded.

The entire fucking fanbase and their produces. That includes memes, fanon theories, and yukkuris.

>ruin
Not in the sense of making me 'hate' it, but it did make me question the quality of the whole thing in general.

I never understood how the fanbase and fan works could "ruin" something. I can stand quite a lot of stupidity and rather appreciate the good stuff than let the bad get on me. If the fans are too unbearable (like I did with the Final Fantasy fanbase, which is... completely awful to put it in a nice way) then I just turn my back on the fanbase, but that wouldn't harm my enjoyment of the actual work in question.
