Oh I’ve done plenty of Western games. I just like Japanese games better, and that’s mostly what I play for fun. And the only reason I do this blog is for fun. My fun. There are plenty of great blogs that only do Western games, like dos-ist-gut. So if you don’t like my blog, just unfollow me, and go follow them instead.
But before you go, you might want to check out just a few of the Western game GIFs that I have done:
Sexy Parodius (Konami - arcade - 1996)
iS: Internal Section (Square - PSX - 1999)
This “tube shooter” is sometimes compared to Rez, but it came out two years before (and only in Japan). It’s a superficial comparision though. Mainly it’s the art style and thumping breakbeat techno that’s similar; the games feel and play a bit differently. I really enjoyed it (especially the puzzle-solving parts) and I highly recommend hunting it down. And, in case you’re wondering, pretty much everything is in English — not that you really need it in this kind of game.
