Think about it. 20 years ago, we didn't have the influx of weeb games that we are seeing now. I mean, we've always had quality Japanese games, but the weeby stuff like Neptunia, Senran Kagura, etc didn't really have a following in the west like it does today.

Do you think this renewed interest in weeb games has something to do with the culture nowadays? Do you think weeb gaming will fade back into obscurity, or is it here to stay?


So you never played SNES, Saturn, Dreamcast or PS2?

Tons of japanese/weebs games on those.

tons of japanese games, but not weeb games
weeb games are persona, akiba strip, netunia, newer tales of... well this thread is full of examples, I took the time to upload a lot of pics of weeb games


Games that has origins as far back as the PSP...Hell, let's go even further back with the FIRST Playstation.

but we have now more weeb games than ever


More like they've been around for a while and that folks like YOU are ignorant to the fact.

Criminal Girls? It didn't start off on the Vita, but actually the PSP.
Dungeon Travelers 2? A spinoff/sequel to To Heart 2: Dungeon Travelers, a game that first shown up on the PC in Japan, but then later got a port for the PSP.
Akiba's Trip? The first game was actually released on the PSP.
The first Conception game was released on the PSP.
The Onechanbara? First game released on the PS2.

Hell, THIS was released on the original DS. Not the 3DS. The first one.

Being a weeb means thinking everything from Japan is superior. ''Weeb games'' doesn't even make any sense. Do the games think they're superior?

Or maybe it can be inferred that weeb games pander to weebs?

Yeah exactly.

Weeb games aren't just Japanese, they are the games that rely on sexualized children and other Japanese cultural features to sell to weebs.

Nope and there are no sexualized kids in games since they wouldn't be sold here
Bulls***. They just change the ages of the girls when the games get localized. This is something documented that can't be disputed.

they don't

and lol at all the people hating japanese games here they must be xbox fans triggered by the fact they don't have great games on xbox

Persona 3 and 4 as well.

It would have probably been in Persona 1 and 2 (Sin and Punishment) but the graphics weren't really good enough back then.
