"I personally don't think that I can, and will be able to, take the enjoyment of 'killing' and 'committing crimes' positively. America is pretty open-minded with those kinds of games, but that's not the case in Japan. This is something Japan should be proud of."
I haven't played the Ryu ga Gotoku series (Yakuza) but isn't that game the same?
If you think that way then that must be the case. At least for you.
But compared to Ryu ga Gotoku, GTA5 where you set out to kill the criminals is much more fun.
Rather, it's better to have games where you're an obvious criminal like GTA instead of trying to glorify the yakuzas.
Yakuza only kills the bad so it's allowed.
But Japan is open-minded when it comes to ero games
In Ryu ga Gotoku, the character obviously kills other people. But this person doesn't like killing, huh.
Games where you kill people are what entertainment is all about.
But you keep on killing others in RPGs!
But all games have been about killing enemies since like, forever
And this is precisely why you can't make good FPS games
So it's fine if you just kill demons?
What about the musou series, you keep on killing hoards of people in those games
You get to kill and kill in the latest installment of the Ryu ga Gotoku series
Are you saying that Japan can be proud of Ryu ga Gotoku where the yakuza are being portrayed as something like an "evil force that's necessary"?
Maybe he doesn't have any sense of reality when it comes to violence.
Take Ryu ga Gotoku for example, they've got bodies that don't die even if you do things that will normally kill a person. Things like that where those kinds of excuses work, and where people don't properly take a look at violence is how Japan is.
I don't think I can agree with this.
Japan's the type of country that will really ban those types of games once you establish this atmosphere where youmshouldn't make games that oppose the idea of poetic justice.
But our games are filled with lolis and rape w
In the first Medal of Honor game, you were able to shoot at the leg and make the enemy cringe in pain, then approach the enemy and shoot at the head to finish him off
But rape plays don't kill people so it's pretty peaceful
So you're fine with killing monsters?
That's nothing but ego, ego, and ego if you ask me.
I would love to point out a lot of things about what he said, but I'd rather say stuff at the picture.
What the heck is this?
And this is why Japan's no good because it once again immediately shuts its door on other possibilities.
Yeah, yeah, all you can do are crappy games when compared to Western games so stop acting strong.
Abroad, they're open-minded when it comes to brutality but are very strict with eroticism.
In Japan, we're open-minded when it comes to eroticism, but very strict on brutality.
Why is that?
I just shot countless zombies, only used a knife to hurt them, and then cheekily blasted them to oblivion using a gas cylinder
I'm grossed out by North American games since there are scenes where you cut their throats with knives like it's nothing
It's just that Japanese creators don't know how to express realism.
That's why they can only make stories 2-dimensionally, with just good vs. evil.
They'll never be able to create characters like Lt. Gen. Shepherd of Modern Warfare 2 and Ulfric of Skyrim along with the story that comes with those characters.
The act of "killing" is just the by-product of trying to go for realism.
There are no games that have the main theme of "enjoying the act of killing people" that have become popular.
Didn't SEGA come out with Golden Axe where you just kept on killing everything?
From Ryu ga Gotoku 4 onwards, you have this move where you can shove the enemy's face on the ground and rub it, but isn't that just unnecessary violence towards the enemy? When it comes to that point, all I can think about is that these developers just finding enjoyment in violence.
I like the Ryu ga Gotoku series, but I don't think it has sincerely faced the act of violence head on
Even in driving games, when you meet an accident, they should show the bodies realistically and show close ups of the aftermath.
This is in order to show everyone that "this is how horrible things can become in real life where there are no resets, when you get into an accident".
I played GTA, for a bit but I got tired of it pretty quick.
If I were to compare it to something, it was like Wii.
It's something that wears out its novelty pretty fast.
Japanese people get turned off by how bodies get cut in half in those Western games
Doko demo issho is probably the only game where no one dies, right?
Japanese games are so hypocritical and gross!
I'm not into military stuff, but FPS players, what's so fun about those games? That's just me asking.
I'm not playing GTA or FPS games just because I want to kill someone.
I just want to play games that are fun.
Try playing GTA.
Not just the part where you "enjoy the act of killing people", but it's done in such fine detail that you can honestly feel the intentions of the staff and the developers that they really want to make the users have an enjoyable experience.
I'm actually sick of FPS games.
The reason why CS-type games are still around after 10 years or so is because FPS games have made zero progress.
How dare you say that after plagiarizing their games, you jerk!
Go to hell, you unintelligent game maker!
The adjective 'whitewashing' fits this guy's statement perfectly.
To think that the game that you're oh-so-proud of even uses knives and guns to attack, but all is well as long as the enemy doesn't "die"?
And this is precisely why people are looking down on you.
Sega even makes games that contributes to real life murder, right?
Japanese games make you think that stealing and killing aren't crimes.
It's like stealing and dying are just natural courses in life.
I'd prefer it if he doesn't say things like this too much.
This'll just bring in waves of restrictions on video games.
