    I get your point.... however....

    VC is atrocious. Let's take another example: last anime I saw without clawing my eyes out was Yamato 2199: it's dumb and naive, and it has a shitton of Japanese things (cute sidekick, female uniforms, toodeep4you stuff) but it's honest and direct, a simple if cliched story told well. Hell, I like Automata and that's also japanese as fuck, particularly the toodeep4you refs.

    VC is dumb. FLOWEEERS MY FATHER GOT A PANTHER TANK IN THE BARNYARD WAR IS BAD MMMKAY GYPSIE JEWS HAHAHA QUIRKY HUMOUR ANIMALS

    Being stupid is not a problem: most games marry a serviceable plot with adequate gameplay and that's good. I can play a game where I can ignore development or the plot: ME 2 is utterly stupid, but the shooting is serviceable. VC is very good but I literally can't, it's dreg done for otakus by otakus that can seriously watch this kind of crap and tell me about "character development". Offensive in a very basic level. We're Gundam level here, and I barely managed to watch MS08 team before laughing at the ending.

    I'll be blunt: the Selvaria or whatever DLC is better because the character is a nondescript stormtrooper dude blowing stuff up under a stupidly dressed hentai character. If all the game was like that, it would have been golden.

    Yup VC2 is garbage. Tried to play it since loved VC1 but that game aside from combat model isn't anywhere near VC1.

    VC3 kind of fixes a lot of issues with VC2 but still it is waaaaay more anime'd than VC1 with typical anime shit.

    The prime requirement to be able to become a Valkyria is apparently a pair of massive knockers.

    Somewhere at the very bottom of the gargantuan pile of weeb shit there might be a decent plot.

    Villains are sympathetic, they just want to remove the Darcswine taint and make Gallia great again.

    The notion of cadets playing a role in a Civil War due to a shortage of officers/soldiers isn't entirely divorced from reality, there are examples in history of such things occurring.

    The idea that normal school life would continue alongside this impressement into the military is of course fundamentally ridiculous.

    People who think VC represents the nadir of jRPG writing should really play Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest.

    Which one are you on? Only one I've played is the one they've got on Steam. Real fun, but I wish they had more maps, more varied equipment, and less weebery.

    Also the cast of VC2, etc.

    Valkyria Chronicles: Unrecorded Cameos.

    Almost ruined the game for me.

    I like how tanks finally feel like tanks. Even targeting the radiator it takes multiple shots to destroy some. In the previous games they might as well have been made out of cardboard.

    The Darcsen tsundere otherwise wrecks everything.

    That chit definitely gets annoying. Even Juliana shows up ffs.

    The existence of chronologically later periods in the narrative is one of the biggest weaknesses of a prequel. The awareness of future conflicts and their characters and the resolution of their stories trivializes the emotional investment audiences are supposed to make in the chronically earlier parts in the narrative.

    LET'S THROW IN A BUNCH OF REFERENCES TO CHRONICALLY LATER PERIODS IN THE NARRATIVE. DIARRHEA OF REFERENCES!
