Being exposed to North American and European gaming press and having heard how they interpret Japanese culture and Japanese gaming what is your impression of those interpretations? I guess what I'm referring to is the widespread generalization that Japan is crazy. Like the Bombcast episodes at TGS when the guys talked about the four story sex shop. Or the Mad World quick look. Just all of it. It's not just Giant Bomb either. Most gaming press talks about Japan as simply 'crazy' and leave it at that. Do these interpretations offend you? Do you get where they're coming from?
Personally, as a white dude from Washington state, it's always felt a bit weird hearing the Japasn is crazy generalizations even though, based off of the examples I've heard, I get where the generalization has come from. It's just that any generalization always gives me a bad feeling.
