(I grew up watching Dragonball and Dragonball Z, so it's very mainstream to me, but we're all weird nerds so our sense of relevancy is skewed. I would say Dragonball Z is much less obscure than Final Fantasy or Civilizarion or Blizzard games to a random person on the street.)


I'm nerdy but in a different way than a lot of guys (i.e. I don't watch cartoons or play video games) and of these things, before starting to play these games Civilization is the only one that I could tell you anything about and I'd played/watched none of them. I don't think my perspective about stuff like this is particularly representative though. I still couldn't tell you anything about Final Fantasy and I'm not totally clear on what games are/aren't Blizzard games even after playing Nexus, but that doesn't mean that those things aren't popular or there shouldn't be games themed around them, lol

Basically everything feels niche when you aren't exposed to it. I think people should run games that maximize the number of potential players who care about the theme, but obviously they aren't obligated to. If you're putting months of your life into hosting a Survivor game you should be able to choose what theme it's going to have, but I do think that caring about the theme can lead to players having a better time or caring more about the game

dragonball is MUCH bigger than naruto and is definitely on yugioh tier. Sailor moon too. You can wear that shit in public and no one bats an eye. Wear a naruto shirt, youre a weeb.

like even people who havent seen dragonball know the name/some characters/etc.

Looking for a co-mod to run a Survivor: Legendary game with me. Theme will be legendary Pokemon and will be a 'Vets vs newbie'. However, the newbies will all have an individual coach to help them navigate through the game and bounce ideas off of.

If you are interested please message me. I have started creating the forum/have most challenges thought out, will probably start writing them up today.
