why does it seem like all the GREAT games are from Japan?

Western console games before the XBOX = complete & utter trash.
Western PC games = mostly meh, besides Blizzard.

None of those games are any good to me. The first Bioware game I even able able to tolerate was KOTOR.

But yes, by all means, name some great PC games from the 20th Century. I welcome recommendations (even if they are inferior to the imaginations of the Japanese).
In fact, come to think of it, one of my favorite games from my childhood just happened to be Oregon Trail.
Battletoads, Goldeneye, Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong Country, and everything else made by Rare are Western.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series
A large number of classic arcade games like Asteroids, Joust and Defender, or even Pong
Crystal Dynamics games (Most of the Legacy of Kain series, Gex series)
LucasArts games (So basically most things Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and a variety of other things such as Zombies Ate my Neighbors and Metal Warriors. Most of their stuff was PC, though.)
Midway games (MK series, Gauntlet series, Smash TV)
PC games being mostly meh...that's just plain wrong.

Everything by Looking Glass Studios (Thief series, System Shock series, Ultima Underworld series)
Fallout 1 and 2
Baldur's Gate series
Commander Keen series
X-Wing and TIE Fighter series
Monkey Island series
Really just about anything by LucasArts
Wing Commander series
Descent series and its spinoff Freespace series
Original X-COM games
Command and Conquer series
Just most Westwood games
Drakan: Order of the Flame
Broken Sword series
PC has a lot to offer.
Now to wait for the inevitable "I don't like any of those games" reply from someone.
You listed a lot of great games but this series is my favorite on the list.
That said, everyone on the side of "Japan has the best games" / "Japan invented games" needs to take a step back and play some more games, because, no disrespect, you are completely clueless and you're only doing yourself a disservice by holding such a view.
