From purely a health standpoint Japanese food is probably better for you than specifically US food

What if the comparison isnt in the number of good products but the number of bad ones. Because from what I've played I've had significantly less bad games and media come from Japan than I have the west

That key question is, do you fluently read Japanese/live locally in Japan? If not, you are playing better games that are able to export to western market vs all western game including bad games.

Let's put it that way. The average quality of Japanese game that are willing to put effort on English translation and audio to sell in western market is better than average quality of all western games. It is just like when someone said like 50 years ago music/movie/etc was better because they only remember the best of that era (unless there are huge improvement in those medium). You are comparing a filtered category vs unfiltered one.

Yeah. I meant it was an unfair comparison for most people unless you live in Japan and Western market. The ability to export to foreign market already filtered out some of the very bad games.

This is not remotely unpopular or controversial.

Isnt it coomonly accepted idea that western games are better? Ofc there are exceptions, but talking in general yhey are simply more fun.

Nah its common knowlege that western devs care more about diversity and battle passes than making good games.

i mean, the same can be said for gatcha shenanigans in eastern games...

by Impressive-Guest6276 1 month ago

Y'all are missing my point.the west does as good as the east when it comes to making GOOD games. Thats the original argument. Process this.

Personal preference. I'm a big fan of Japanese food, but not of manga (I can't stand the drawing style), hate JRPGs and not even a big Zelda fan (although I liked the Twilight princess).
