Do you still avoid buying western games?

Western developers cant make a good rpg or fighter in my opinion. It all comes down to preference in genre because each has different strengths when it comes to genres.

jrpgs have more in common with interactive movies than rpgs while western rpg lets you actually role play.

Bad or good is a matter of opinion as you pointed out, of course the consensus is that they are fantastic otherwise occidental consumers wouldnt buy The Witcher, Mass Effect, Dragon Age by the million while J"RPG" barely sell and have been in a steadily decline for the past 6 years.

But whatever your opinion is at least western developers make RPGs, unlike eastern developers.
Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.

I don't try to avoid western games but I'm just not interested in the experiences/genres they are geared towards providing. Most of the Western games in my collection are from previous generations.

I generally gravitate towards the Japanese releases but their output this generation hasn't been all that interesting either, meaning I just don't buy many modern games. I've been backtracking through previous generations looking for gems and diamonds in the rough.

I will say I recently completed the first Metroid Prime and that title successfully blurred the line between Western and Eastern in my opinion, offering an Eastern IP with Western mechanics.

Additionally, while I don't hate JRPGs I'm still burnt out from playing a million of them during the PS1 days. I have a few from this generation on hand but have yet to play them.

As for FPS, I just don't care unless it's the original Doom games, Goldeneye and, again, Prime.

I know if a game looks to be alright, that's when I rent it to see if I like it.

Yes I (kinda) do. I still can count all western games I would give 8/10 or better with two hands.

I was really surprised about Scott Pilgrim vs. The World though, A license game made by a generally mediocre american company (ubisoft) should never be able to be a top tier game, but somehow it just is.

No, I buy whatever interests me - where said game was developed is irrelevant.
