    Bizarre, really. You don't understand football, so you don't watch it, but you clearly don't understand journalism either, yet you persist with it. Why?

    the thing i've learned about japanese gamers and games is, if you put 3892710984 collectibles in your game, and have a ridiculously high level cap, japanese gamers will play it for hundreds of hours just to collect all the shit you put in it. japanese gamers play the most simple games for hundreds of hours, and i'll never understand why. i loved dragon quest 9 as much as the next guy, but when i beat it in 80 or so hours, i was done with it. these japanese folks are still running around with this game playing past the 1000 hour mark. it's fucking mad.

    I really like the idea of playing video games with complete strangers on some public transportation system. I kinda wish that was more of a thing here in the States.

    If you think football is boring, you have never watched it with brazilian commentary
  • EpicWaffles - November 12, 2012 8:34 p.m.

    He said soccer is boring because Americans aren't that good at soccer. Exception: David Beckham. But yeah Mexico and Brazil are beast.
  • SentientSquidMachine - November 13, 2012 7:42 a.m. many things, wrong.

    ah soccer...the 'rpg' of the sports world. the 'beautiful game'. so intricate, longitudinal, with long, creative strokes. but... ...looks terribly slow and boring if you don't know what's going on. i honestly think the whole "generalizing america" is beyond stupid, though. would you generalize the uk, australia, canada, france, and germany, with their combined populations of 270ish million? 45ish million less than the us population? of course you wouldn't. because it's stupid.

    hows this 7 things? just reads like a i love hand helds nothing to do with usa
  • Terranator - November 12, 2012 4:14 p.m.

    Because Japan LOVES making handhelds, and Japan is confusing so the stuff they do needs clarification.

    I am a New Zealander and was hoping an American could offer me some insight to American gamer trends, Why does every 12 year-old with a headset try to make as much noise as possible on Xbox Live and secondly why are they playing restricted games such as gears of war and call of duty, there is some seriously twisted imagery in those games which 12 year-olds should not be exposed to.
  • SentientSquidMachine - November 13, 2012 7:52 a.m.

    That's pretty easy. You see, in the good 'ole USofA, parents don't mind if little Billy plays games full of violence, killing hundreds of ...things, as long as he is a solider of some sort - be that space marine, navy seal, etc. BUT, no nudity...that's a nono. Now that you understand the mindset of the parents, imagine what sort of children they would rear, and there you have it. You're welcome.

    You know one reason the PSP outsells the vita? Cause the price isn't worth it for not enough games and FUCK THEM FOR NOT GIVING US THE PROMISED SERVICE TO MAKE OUR UMDS INTO DIGITAL DOWNLOADS! Seriously pisses me off. So much I refuse to get a vita.
  • bedelicious - November 12, 2012 12:47 p.m.

    Hey, I like soccer (we call it football) :P
  • Juan Diaz - November 12, 2012 12:29 p.m.

    Funny how the title is 'things that don't make sense to American gamers' and they don't view things like soccer games from other perspectives. From my point of view soccer is boring but it has a huge fan base, which are mostly people from South/North America and Europe. Point is, need more facts to ask a question like 'what's the deal with soccer?'.
  • bebl09 - November 12, 2012 7:58 p.m.

    Football has its fanbase literally all over the world, not just South/North America and Europe.
  • 7-D - November 12, 2012 12:18 p.m.

    Why does every joke or piss-take have to be "trolling" these days?
  • profile0000 - November 12, 2012 12:13 p.m.

    Alright, that final entry was genius. Henry deserves a raise.
  • mbavalo - November 12, 2012 11:23 a.m.

    Yeeeees!!! Someone actually grows the balls to tell the world how stupid soccer games are!
