  1. 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.

  4. 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.

      Yes, because those are all Japan makes.

  5. 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.

  6. I don’t understand why there is games journalism and despise everyone that relies on them to decide what to play or support their work in any way.

    • Because they’re used to everyone sucking their cocks and people like us aren’t afraid to call them out on their bullshit.

    • Or, because they’re trash and most Western games are trash. Also, that doesn’t explain why so many people here tend to prefer Japanese games, despite not being from Japan.

  7. 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.

  8. 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."
