I realized, the majority of games I own are made by Japanese developers.
I dunno, I just don't like Western-made ones, some just lean into "hell yeah realism" territory and the gameplay sometimes just fall flat on its face. Some are just too gritty and ugly looking to me. Before anyone says it, Dark Souls is Japanese made too. :)
(I actually do like Dark Souls and I do want to investigate its lore one day but my backlog is too huge right now)
Now Western made indie games are a different story, there's A Hat in Time, Celeste, the Undertale series that one funkin dancing game idk
I really do want to get into Western games more, but nothing ever clicks. I need to expand my horizons more but I can't if I got no interest in anything anymore lmao
also figure i should use this blog to actually post thoughts that i won't shut up about but know no one's going to hear
