I kind of always thought the weird Japanese fanservice games were in appropriate. Even as a kid, seeing the kind of weird semi-porn stuff were in games, I was like "Wow, this is really shameful."
Part of it is a cultural thing, I guess, what's acceptable in japan can be considered perverted insanity in the Western world. But outside the internet, I've never heard anyone say people should go to jail for playing those kind of games. You might be exaggerating a bit.
Except it's not acceptable in Japan. They are called Otaku for a reason. It' be like saying everyone in the U.S. that are adults love comic books and child beauty pageants. What you're looking at is niche which represents a very small community driven hobby. It doesn't even represent the majority of gaming there in general or Anime in general. If the average Japanese game sells over 100K in Japan it's considered a success. Some games that sell 30K are considered a success there. If a game sells that kinda number in the West its a failure. A game usually needs to break a million to be considered a success in the West. Kingdoms of Amalur broke 1 million and the company still went under. Japan has 127 Million people. U.S. has 311 Million people. Despite having half the population; that's still a considerably large population crammed in that small of a country in comparison to the U.S.
ill never understand this japanese game hate .EVER
I dont hate japanese games, I hate unbearably silly and overtly embarassing games, which is what japanese games typically are like. The small minority of japanese games who are the exception to that are okay in my book.
Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.
I dislike bad games, and most JRPGs this gen on the PS3 have been bad. Thus, I dislike most JRPGs this gen. However, I don't dislike Japanese games since my favorite franchises (Metal Gear, Pokemon) are Japanese. So, yeah...

"ill never understand this japanese game hate .EVER"
Really? Because on GameFaq it seems to be the other way around.
No the majority of people on this board are anti Japanese game this gen. You can try to spin it all the way you want to fit into your argument but I keep track of the names and there are a lot in comparison to the supporters
