By that token, I can't see Cinderella Girls as a collection game either.
To me, a collection game is one where you collect cards, not just characters. Here, you're defining it as one where you collect characters, so that restricts it to games like KanColle where each character only gets one card. Maybe look at Tenka Hyakken.>>183735210
You constantly ignore the fact that Cinderella Girls had collabs with Granblue for years without a problem whatsoever while at the same time saying that because LLfags get triggered at the existence of guys in Granblue, all idolfags are like that.
I wouldn't exactly call the other type of idolfag "good", but the games they play put the self-insert character as someone in charge of the idols, which makes the relationship a superior-subordinate one, which is in line with other self-insert games, rather than a fan-idol one, which is in line with 3D idolfags. The differing dynamic of the relationship sets the idol franchises apart and causes the idolfags to see the girls differently as a result.
The 3D equivalent of im@s would be being the producer of, say, AKB48. If you would put Yasushi Akimoto in the exact same category as the fans of AKB48, that just means you don't know what you're talking about.
