Why do people always like to care about Japan vs Western Games?

Both regions make great games. Japan makes great games like Hyperdimension Neptuina, The Last Rebellion, Atelier Meruru, Cross Edge, while the West makes great games like Half Life 2, Bioshock, The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, Uncharted series, Halo franchise.

"Great" is subjective. Besides, both West and East make more crap than quality. Let's just say everything sucks and be done with it.

Because all these kiddies on gfaqs are slightly racist so they need to compare them.

I don't understand it. The more games we have the better chances of one of them being a gem.

Design ideals. Japan focuses on gameplay above all else while the west focuses on balancing everything.

People enjoy the whole "us vs. them" thing, wherever they can get it. I've never understood it.

Not necessarily true, depends on the game, not the country.

No idea, personally all i care about is if a game is good or not, don't really care where it comes from

Wishes we could go back to the days of gaming where developers released finished products and the consumers weren't QA testers
