For the example discussed, WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief doesn\'t really apply, it\'s simple logical thought. But don\'t fret, what you\'re experiencing is frankly the common reaction Arena proponents have (and have similar backgrounds too).

But, the big question and real focus should be, does that mean you are okay with that trope entry from the start?

But, the big question and real focus should be, does that mean you are okay with that trope entry from the start? CharacterShilling. Does Arcade have it? Well, I see it there, or something very similar. Will you stand against it still?

It . . . has some negative implications related to the while ToughActToFollow by basically setting it up as Popcorn fiction: no depth, no remembrance. It exists and can be enjoyed, but then. . . it\'s forgotten but for a salty aftertaste. And possibly a coughing fit.

To the deaths, well, it brings up the problem of HighConcept striking into Character Driven narratives. The characters are too rich for the roles given and thus they end up wasted in the role. They aren\'t characters, they\'re cogs in a machine.

I have said this in the archived discussion but nobody commented: Is it really necessary to have [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Arlen]] on this list? We know the country and state, and there is a given name for the city. There\'s even a name for the county It might be a fictional one, but it\'s still miles more established than many of the other setting examples on this list.
