Japanese games > Western games

It's fact. With Japenese games we get epic experiences like Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Silent Hill, etc...


What are Western games? Sports, sports, fps, fps, etc...

Also Hatsune Miku is not a Western release. Nuff said.

No exaggerations.

I didn't mention western failures like DmC to be nice.

Why are ya'll arguing about this?

Gamers are too reactionary. Games are like fine wine, they must linger for us to get their true taste. There are plenty of examples.

When an obese woman becomes inpregnated with a spoiled cucumber you end up with a melting Popsicle that tastes like tomato.

I've never believed that "Japan's games have sunken below Western". The best games are usually still Japanese. (my opinion following)

Demon's Souls/Dark Souls
Bayonetta, Rising, Vanquish (on the action front)
The Evil Within (set to remind everyone what videogame horror really is)

The 3 most anticipated games from E3: MGSV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy V

There may be LESS great Japanese games these days, and for that you need some decent Western games to fill up your library, stuff like inFamous, God of War etc, but on the whole the only Western game I hype to the max is GTAV. (EDIT, oh, forgot Rayman Legends.)

I'd say it's more like half agenda and half fishing expedition. It wouldn't be abnormal regional mentality otherwise.

I sometimes wonder if mary and her five sisters come into play when they create these topics ... well, either that or a god complex brought about by an inferiority complex.

I have to admit i'd love to see one of the regionally challenged in a therapy session. Nothing like watching someone have their personal biases brought to light and watching them try to excuse it away.

For the record to my left about 3 ft. away sits approximately 500 games. The question is: Do i really need to care whether they are Japanese developed or not to enjoy them?

9 out of 10 baby chimps surveyed said no ... the 10th one is in therapy.

Nobody cares how many games you have. You haven't played most of them and you know it.
