      Yes they are better. The reason there’s a "bias" in the first place is because they really are just objectively better. Weebs exist for a reason. You think it’s because they appreciate the culture and history of Japan? Sure, maybe they learn about it later but weebs are weebs because of games and anime. If Japs weren’t better at games than the west, weebs would only be like half as common as they are.

        What kind of logic is this? Japanese games and anime are niche. They are despised by the general population. By your logic there should be more weebs than people who like western games and cartoons etc.

          Nintendo singlehandedly resurrected the gaming industry in the mid 80s after the west absolutely fucked it up.
          The overwhelming majority of western developed games from the mid 80s~mid 90s were noticeably of lower quality than those made in Japan.

        i was thinking about that the other day. Japanese games are style over subtance (persona 5, dragon quest, suda and swery games, etc) meanwhile western games is about adding every amount of content they can (fallout, skyrim, any fortnite type of game that have a shit ton of costumes) even if it doesn’t fit the game (GoW having RPG elements, the 272729 collectables in every open world, etc)

          It’s not "style over substance" if the style also leads to the gameplay being fun. A single, linear, tightly-designed and 90% enjoyable experience is infinitely preferable to an open world that only has truly good chances of being enjoyable for the 10-20% of the time you’re doing a properly linear and curated sequence of events.

            most japanese games are rpg, anon. and the gameplay on thoses aren’t that fun. Only nintendo game and action character games (dmc, bayonetta, ninja gaiden) are fun. The rest you play them to experience the story or because the do something innovative/unique enough that makes you play it, even if in the end is pretry jank, like suda and swery games

              No, they’re not. Most Japanese games aren’t RPGs at all.
              That aside, I like JRPG gameplay. Sometimes it requires me to do something weird to be truly fun but it’s usually at least enjoyable.

        Normalfags are unable to handle the fact that some people are more creative than them so they have to attribute to an external event. With Japanese creatprs, it’s because they got nuked; with western creators, it’s "What drugs were they on?" It’s not a "joke", it’s the insecurity of consumers who lack imagination.

      Japanese games aren’t INHERENTLY better if that’s what you’re trying to say, it’s just that Japanese games, most often more obviously Japanese games, are more likely to be good on average, at least within the AAA sphere.
      The main reason, I think, is that "hobbyist culture" in Japan isn’t as dead as in the west, so many games are still developed with their actual audience in mind, rather than the largest possible crowd that wants a taste of something that was once the domain of hobbyists.
      The indie scene is more hit or miss, though.

      I love tons of western movies from the 80s to around 2000-2005~ and tolkiens work is probably my favorite single piece of fiction
      Vidya follows a similiar pattern where some of my favorite games from my childhood were western games like spyro/tony hawks pro skater/diablo 2/C&C but all the western studios I liked were fleeced and are either dead or are something else wearing the originals skin
      Dont get me wrong my favorite jap devs have had ups and downs like capcom around 2010 until a few years ago or konami for like the last 15 or square enix and its fucking wild inconsistency since square soft and enix merged
      And thats without mentioning how far western landscape has come with nickel and diming and focus group testing for player retention to wring out more etc, its practically as bad as the shit korea does but atleast the mathematicians dont try to hide it

      Japanese games are targeted at children and teenagers, because japanese adults don’t have time for video games. You can actually gauge the maturity of a person by how much they like japanese games. Well-adjusted adults are more likely to enjoy western games, with genres such as strategy and simulation that are common in the west but totally absent in Japan.

            The triple AAA industry for the West is literally movie: the video game. Their entire premise is to make a medium for idiots that want to be passively entertained and weirdos like you that are obsessed with "muhh serious mature story!"

      They produce trash like we do it’s more or less because certain (((people))) and (((politics))) aren’t pooping up their industry. Generally I think it’s an American centric problem, people Bobby Kotick are American made. You get greedy nips but they’re no where near as torrentially hedonistically money obsessed as your average American corporation. Kind of like how when you go to a country with actual food and heath standards their mars bar doesn’t have 10 billion additives derived from petrol. The culture of California and their politics are also a major reason.

      In the 80s and 90s, I’d say indisputably.

      But once games started becoming movies and graphics got better, they dropped the ball because Japanese people rarely make good movies. Plus their gameplay in the early 2000s was bogged down by tradition. Western games took that opportunity to innovate and blast them out of the water.

      Now we’re in the era where a giant like Square Enix is trying to make a Skyrim/Witcher game as their next FF. What a world.

        Japan’s problem was catering to people who last played video games in the 80s.
        And now western games are bogged down pleasing people who NEVER played video games in the first place. So Japan is back to dominating. In another 10 or 20 years I bet the western indie scene will be capitalizing on nostalgic inspiration from those turn of the century western games, though.

          You make it sound like that was a bad thing. That behavior is exactly how we got Demon’s Souls, during a stagnant console generation chock full of hilarious amounts of handholding and tutorials.

        I mostly agree with this, since FromSoft really moved the combat mechanics in the action RPG genre forward with Demon’s Souls. Western games have been trying to catch up in that department ever since. That entire console generation felt really fucking stagnant. But otherwise, yeah.

        As for good Japanese films, they really are getting shit on by South Korea, aren’t they? A good relatively recent Japanese film is "One Cut of the Dead". Check it out.

      They aren’t exactly great it’s that just the West is completely trash in comparison.

        "Open" is a strong word but I was able to secure a visa as a pretext to spending time with the Christmas Cake I’m trying to seduce. Tourism is pretty much a no-go.
