Long before they became notable in the US for publishing cheap games that were entertaining and good for the gamer on a budget, they became notable in Japan for, well, publishing cheap games that were entertaining and good for the gamer on a budget. In Japan, however, this gaming series had a name: The Simple Series. The Simple Series mostly consists of basic, easy to understand games that feature such wonderful titles as "The Billiards" and "The Dungeon RPG", and when that naming convention ultimately ran dry, "The Maid and the Machine Gun" and "The Earth Defense Force". They've published approximately eleven billion of these things, and in case you couldn't tell, I own something like thirty of them, including a game that makes idols play mini-games (think Dead or Alive Xtreme with less content) and a turn-based strategy game based on Earth Defense Force, which is, as you might think, awesome".
