Inafune praises Fish's 'honest' Japanese game comments

While gamers continue to debate whether or not Phil Fish is an asshole for declaring that all Japanese games suck, the FEZ creator has at least one Eastern developer who agrees with him. That developer is Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, famous for his long-standing criticism of his home country. He believes Fish needed to say what he said.

I really don't get the two face reference because Inafune has never changed his stance.

Are they still going on about this? It's not that he can't express his opinion or if it is wrong or right.It's how he expressed his opinion that is the problem. He acted like a [email protected]$$ then pretended he was innocent.

About time someone else said it, Fish is a complete jerk for his conduct iin stating his opinion, he even tweeted his apology in a way that actually looked like it hurt him to do it. If your a professional, then be a "professional" about it, not a pissant.

You're suggesting that the internet doesn't kick up a shitstorm even when developers convey their controversial opinions in the most civil way possible?

...because that actually happens all the time.

How were Dead Rising and Lost Planet bad games?

wallis2378d ago (Edited 2378d ago )

They're both buggy, poorly written and have terrible voice acting. Lost planet was just about competent and dead rising turned zombies into kittens you could brush off with a bit of shaking.

I completely agree with this guy. Japanese games are borderline at the best of times. Story is terrible, characters are terrible angsty unrelatable assholes who look like pre-pubescent children stretched into adulthood. I can't believe anyone has the audacity to claim the metal gear series had a good story. It's like someone asked an autistic 13 year old to write a cold war thriller. While every other part of the world is recognizing the unlimited potential of games as a story telling medium Japanese developers still get the shakes if they put leas thank 80 hours of cutscenes in. Not that they ever make any fucking sense to begin with.

This isn't a racism thing, Id argue happily that this is a matter of taste, that it's a matter of culture, and that's fine. But I will not have someone tell me the spaghetti monsters that are the scripts for series such as final fantasy or metal gear solid are anything less than the ramblings of an illiterate retard who doesn't understand narratives, characters, dialog or the difference between a game and a movie.

wallis you have a terrible taste in gaming

StupidDude2378d ago

We get it, Inafune.

We get it.

You get it, but that doesn't mean that Japanese developers do. Man, just look at Capcom. It's like they're giving up and letting all their games be made by Western developers.

Alos882378d ago

There's a difference between being honest and being an asshole, and the fact is that Fish treated the guy how asked the question like crap for no reason. It wasn't even him being blunt, he was being a jerk.

jc485732378d ago

you need jerks like him sometimes, so that their comments are heard in Japan.
