Some probably are.

But to generalize the whole is to be the biggest moron on the planet.

No. If a game is bad, it'll get the score it deserves, regardless of western/japanese ties.

At least I have an argument, unlike you. From what I've read in this topic alone, yours is "I'm going to be blind and ignorant."

If by argument you mean something too small to even be considered a minority.

How many "Triple A" titles are padded in scores by paychecks and special services?

Gamefailers didn't pepper their website with every Dragon Age 2 skin available because it was a good game.
