"If you talk about the war between Japanese developers and those overseas, I acknowledge that we have already lost. The Japanese creators have lost to the European and American creators. Therefore, I always say to my staff, Don't look at the Japanese creators. Look toward the Europeans and Americans when looking at development". -Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series
I wonder how quickly gamers who find Japan the "most innovative of developers" and "the inventor of video games" changed their minds, or even acknowledged it? Because you know if Japan says so, it is correct.
