Fate/Grand Order Secures 10 Million Downloads

Bouncy-Cheerleader-Scathach-by-Sankakusui

Delight Works has revealed that the widely enjoyed Fate/Grand Order has managed to accrue 10 million total downloads in Japan, an impressive feat that some may consider a sign that Japanese society is devolving into brainless zombies who do nothing but play with their smartphones all day.

The news was announced during a stage event at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair, a special in-game campaign is also being held in celebration of the milestone – players will additionally receive 30 Saint Quartz (in-game currency) if the campaign’s twitter post obtains more than 100,000 tweets (a goal that came to fruition in barely 3 hours).

The game’s English iteration secured 1 million downloads at the start of September, sporting a decently high level of notoriety (which many did not expect of the western barbarians) and bound to be generating even more cash for the already colossal Fate franchise.

    Think that's a running joke that the author make because of what a couple of Japanese people said.

    In fact, it comes from the warring states era slurs for foreigners, mainland barbarians (chinese), southern barbarians (portuguese, spanish and dutch( and western barbarians (the rest). They started to decline really slowly centuries later, when th black ships and all that shit...

    "Japanese society is devolving into brainless zombies who do nothing but play with their smartphones all day."

    LOL its no different than the Americanos devolving into zombies with their Overwatch, Call of Duty, Battlefield, World of Warcaft, GTA, and such.

    playing a game is much more stimulating than watching tv as the previous generations did, I think you are being an idiot on some levels

    Gaming today is TV watching of the previous generation. It's an engaging and social form(multiplayer) of entertainment, unlike TV that is mainly only entertaining (when it is).

    Those take some motor skill, thinking, and active involvement. Gacha mobile games are just grind grind grind with a teeeeny bit of core skill - your ability to aim the balls in Monster Strike or match globes in P&D is nothing compared to your willingness to just log in every couple hours and grind.

    I've played the big ones (FGO, P&D, MS, Granblue, Fire Emblem) and quit when they stop being fun and start being totally mindless. And they all do. Something like GTA has endless options, and even Call of Duty shakes up the core game every year or so.

    I'm not sure about the other games, but Fire Emblem Heroes requires some skill if you're playing on the higher difficulties. For me, the interesting point of that game is getting all the possible content/ranks without spending a cent.

    Doesn't change the fact that people spend many hours a day playing them.

    You're either missing or ignoring his point: you're not a zombie if you're actually thinking. If spending your time doing the same thing everyday is being a zombie for you, then the whole modern style of life is being a zombie.

    Yeah dude, Fate and those other mobile games require way more thinking than Overwatch and those other mindless games...

    It's been a while since I've seen this level of retard, even on Sankaku.

    It seems like you're reading too deep what he really means and taking it out of context.
    Though you say you don't play Overwatch often, it sounds like you do play it from time to time at least. And just because you don't play it often, it doesn't mean you don't still like it seeing how you were defending it.

    Anymore more bullshit you're gonna pull out of your ass to make yourself sound right, retard?

    The quote the OP is quoting says "mindless zombies". He just called them zombies, but omitting the mindless part, which could be taken as understood given the context. Furthermore, intelligent zombies don't even really exist. I don't even play Overwatch often, you retard.

    lolwut?
    Where was it said by 12:30 and the OP that mobile games require more thinking than games like Overwatch, WoW, and GTA?
    Like what? Did you get upset that your precious Overwatch gets compared those lame mobile games that you have to put words in their mouths?

    Fucking retard
