      In general, would you say that western game reviewers have a bias against Japanese games? There are exceptions, of course.

      Sure but its a cultural bias because they dont understand the culture.
      Neither do most people here for that matter.

      Absolutely. Any game that does not clearly state its own intentions of what it wants the player to feel gets written off as "weird Japanese shit."

        Sekiro won as journalist cope for saying it needed an easy mode so they could save face. It was my goty that year too, but don’t act like the people who voted for it weren’t the same ones who said it needed to be easier.

          Sekiro is heavily based on western AAA though and is from the subset of Japanese devs who just want to copy westerners though

          Slightly less retarded than the other guy but still really bad. Westerners did not invent stealth action games nor are any western beat em ups designed around Royalguarding enemies

                There were more headlines, but that’s besides the point. People join groups all the time, whether they’re mailing lists or discord servers. If you think that it’s impossible for a journalist to join one then you’re very dumb.

                      Somebody stating that they would have had more fun with a game if the game’s difficulty suited their skill level is an evident truth, from hard games being too hard, to easy games being too easy. Getting upset at that is like being upset that a game has options for mixing the audio.

                        Except that’s not true, they wouldn’t have had more fun with the game, because the game wouldn’t be fun without the difficulty level it was designed around. The actual "truth" is that they’re lashing out in frustration because they refuse to take responsibility for their own mistakes and are delusional enough to believe it’s a flaw with the game if they struggle with something, and not a flaw with their own lack of ability and unwillingness to improve.

                        Who the fuck says they’re upset? All we’re saying is that if you don’t like hard games, then don’t try to play them, rather than trying to day the devs of those games should cater to you instead of you just fucking off to [play what you actually like.

                It’s really funny how conspiring suddenly becomes impossible for a well known or wealthy corporation. They have NDAs and whistle-blowers for crying out loud lmao

      There’s a bias in the sense that they haven’t seen their full catalogue. People complaining about JRPG teens would be like other countries claiming that our all of our movies are superhero films or that all of our videogames are FIFA and GTA.

      Yes, they often grade them worse and decry certain things that are in western games that they have no problem with.

      But a lot of Japanese games are more AA lower budget heavy on action and most reviewers like AAA cinematic games.

      No it’s just weebs who have the opposite bias of thinking anything that is Japanese is inherently better. That isn’t to say that Japanese games are bad, but only that you guys are liable to give too more credit than a game deserves. That also isn’t to say that western ‘gaming journalists’ (or from any region, for that matter) can’t be fucking retarded.

      Western game reviewers critique a game based on a normie westerners mindset. If a Jap game is more serious in tone and appeals to western audiences then of course reviewers will like it. It’s only when we get total weeb shit that reviewers lose their cool because most FIFA and GTA players wont want that weirdo shit.
