If you think "they don't know a good thing" because they don't prefer simple western shooters over everything amazing they already have, I TRULY feel sorry for you.
I think the fact that a lot of Americans think this way is why most of the world sees us as simple, biggoted idiots. And they're completely right.
I totally agree with Hopeful!
I think most of the people saying forget japan..etc.etc are just little kids with no actual knowledge of video games. Where do they think most of the games we play come from (ex: Final Fantasy, Devil May Cry,Ace Combat, Tekken, Metal Gear,Castlevania,etc.. SHALL I GO ON?) They are the ones with the MOST game experience and they know how to make great games (RESIDENT EVIL). Now picture if none of these games ever came out. I know more than 3/4 of you guys have enjoyed one of the above mentioned and there's loads more but just don't have he time to post the all.
Did you guys forget who started this game console craze in the US? If you haven't played NES, MASTER SYSTEM, GENESIS when they were the console(s) to get , Then you really have no idea. Most of you guys really have no idea what you are rambling about.
CAPCOM , SQUARE ENIX, KONAMI, SEGA, KOEI, etc... Too many to type in, but these companies alone, more thn 80% of people here, have purchased a game from them. Stop the hypocrisy!
Those of you with ill feeling over japan's non-partcipating in 360 are wrong. I played with many japanese people on LIVE (LOST PLANET - Another jap made game) and if M$ would actually cater to their likings then maybe it will take off in japan. They dont really care for a shooter's market as we blood thirsty americans are used to. Ever other game in our collection consists of 1st person/3rd person shooters and a few platformers/sports games. Look ta us as well, buy MADE IN THE USA!! Support our country! Its that they are just a bit more loyal to their homeland than we are. They have the discipline/smarts that we (i painfully admit) lack! I feel sad for those who say M$ rules gaming. LMFAO!!!!!!
TAKE THE BLUE PILL AND WAKE UP FROM YOUR DELUSIONAL STATE OF MIND!!
