With games like darksouls , mass effect, skyrim, bayonetta, Tomb raider, halo, and many more, I can't really tell anymore without looking at the boxart for the dev or publisher name. (unless the start up screen has the names).

So tell me, can you spot a difference? Is there someway you can clearly tell?

Don't bring that filthy west vs. east crap to this board.
We don't want or need it.
There's enough of that garbage on the PS3 boards.

The only clear difference I can tell?

When you can't tell if someone's supposed to be a girl or not......that's when I know I'm playing a Japanese game.....>_>

Both regions have certain tropes. Both regions have good games.

The protagonists are usually quite different, too.

Not all games from both sides are like that though. Look at snake from MGS

or dante from DmC.

Japanese games tend to have

- clunky/unintuitive gameplay
- cheesy dialogue
- over the top (and unintentionally comical) character designs
- bland stories that are basically broken down rip offs of Western stories/mythology
- annoying music
- pretentious fanbases
