Japanese games - Why are they a rarity in Europe?

A lot of people who own a console or PC can´t get the thoughts of Japanese games out of their heads. And who can blame them? As we miss out on a lot of games. And Especially those of lewd nature. So these are my (Norman, TGG) thoughts on the matter.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well, as for the West...Both "Criminal Girls 2" and "Valkyrie Drive" got banned in Germany and Australia...

I feel really sorry for the gamers that live in Australia and Germany :S

It´s not much better in South Korea either, as the whole country has gone full SJW mode.

Simon_the_sorcerer815d ago

Yes...But I´m somewhat worried that this SJW cancer will spread all over the Western civilization. In other words, that the West will become like Germany -_-

Now that I think about it, it would be really interesting to know how much German and Australian gamers spend on game imports? Furthermore, how many games they import per year? Quite a lot I bet.

TGG_overlord816d ago

Hmm, good question. That might actually be worth looking into.

Isn't the upcoming MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death also banned in Australia

TGG_overlord816d ago

I think that´s correct, as "Criminal Girls 2" and "Valkyrie Drive" won´t be released there.

Littil_Devil816d ago

That would be correct, and that´s also why a lot of games in the West gets either banned or censored on release.

Some Australian friends of mine have to import games via New Zealand most of the time to avoid crap like that...

TGG_overlord816d ago

I think Germany is the worst country in the whole world when it comes to censorship in video games. Hell, they even ban tons of games as well :S

Littil_Devil816d ago

Didn´t a lot of Australian Gamers go over to New Zealand just so that they could buy GTA5?

"Yup. Country SJW rules"

No wonder why more and more people are buying games from Japan instead...
