Hello. I have a certain problem... my friend can't figure out the difference between Anime and anime game pictures... do you guys have any ideas on what differences there are? (besides one being a show and one being a game)

Anime is usually seen in a video format, either standard resolution at around 704x396 23.98fps or HD at something like 1280x720 23.98fps

There usually recognizable by the frame's aspect ratio (now-a-days mostly wide-screen) and video compression. Also, do to the nature of the medium, most art in animation will be much simpler than that in games, although many anime adapted from games use the art from the original games.

Games usually have their art at a standard 4:3 aspect ratio of computer monitors somewhere between 800x600 and 1280x1024 depending on the age of the game. They're still images most of the time, and have a high level of detail to compensate for their static nature.

This is pretty much the stupidest thread ever made.

why do you need to tell the difference?

Video game pics are usually 3d? lol

hmm... well, I am referring to cg in computer games. not 3d video games... forgot to be specific, sorry...

Saying "CG" isn't very specific either. Why not explicitly say 2D?

CG computer game pictures vs. anime screencaps or CG computer game pictures vs. pictures people made of anime characters?

If it's the first one, CG pictures are usually perfect. Since they were made to be seem on the computer and one picture at a time, there usually aren't any mistakes. Also, in my experience CG pictures are usually done in light, almost pastel colors.

With anime screencaps you can usually find errors such as blurriness, bleed, etc. Also, darker colors are usually used and it usually has more of a pencil drawn outline. Lastly, since there are so many frames in anime, and thus so many that don't matter when put with the rest, characters and items are more likely to look slightly distorted than if it was a single Cg pic.

If it's the second one, CG computer game pictures vs. pictures people made of anime characters, then there might not be a way to tell them apart, since people can do cg pictures of anime characters that look the same as one that would come from a game.

Seconded, I'm rather embarrassed to have posted in this thread actually. It's not often that I'm genuinely embarrassed by the sheer stupidity of a thread like this.
