Eman's Musings on Video Games: The Loli Theory

This is a musing I had between Castlevania games about the prevalence of loli characters in video games. Here I give my thoughts on why I believe lolis and nerdom go hand-in-hand, and I explain the reasons why so many video games and animes feature lolis.

This is a new a series on musings I have aloud on stream. Most of these videos will be post-game reviews of games I beat, while other videos will be cool discussions about interesting topics.

  • If you actually want to know the real reason anime and video games are rooted in lolicon, there's an academic by the name of Patrick W. Galbraith who has written papers on the subject. He also did some videos with Lost Pause about Moe and Loli. I would recommend checking out any of these works or videos before continuing with this comment.

    Once you've become acquainted with Patrick's work and the history of anime and video games in Japan. You can then look up Supernormal Stimulus and Neoteny in humans. Humans are a neotenic species, and we look like the juveniles of our ancestors after many, many generations of sexual selection. None of us are truly adults after reaching what we define as maturity, and what little traits we still retain of our adult ancestors are largely considered unattractive, hence all of the shaving and make-up. The vestiges of this attraction that led to our current state can also be triggered by exaggerated stimulus found in the overly large heads and eyes of drawn characters, causing some people to develop a 2D-complex where they prefer these caricatures that don't exist in the real world. However, while the fictional characters are visually more attractive compared to real people, they're still not quite able to cause certain chemical catalysts in the brain that can only come from physical contact with another human.

    In any case, you can test this for yourself by listing the drawn characters you find the most attractive. I highly doubt the characters you find the most visually appealing look anything like a carbon-copy photograph of a real person. Though a better test would be one where a neuro-scientist shows you images of different people and drawings to gauge your true response; there's been studies on this that paint an uncomfortable picture of humanity.

  • Man you are very modern and open minded do you talk about other philosophical stuff in your other videos that aren't loli.

  • From my experience I find the guys who are into lolis are often emotionally (and sexually) immature – even if they're grown men. Adult women are intimidating to them, and the child-like, insecure character is a bit like them. The loli offers a tailor-made safe experience with a woman(-like character). They're easy to approach unlike real women and it's not necessarily sexual but the loli offers some sort of subconscious emotional satisfaction.
