His statement on Japanese games didnít hurt me in any way, and I like Japanese games. In fact, my second favorite game of 2011 was by a Japanese developer. Not to mention that I have major respect for some Japanese developers, like Suda51, Hideo Kojima, and Shigeru Miyamoto. I enjoy their games immensely, both new and old. If someone were to say that they didnít like the same things I like, whether it be Phil Fish, or someone I immensely respect, I wouldnít care because I still like what I like.
People shouldnít overlook a great game just because of a developerís personal opinion. What he said had no effect on how good the game is, and it also wonít effect on how enjoyable it is either. Iím not trying to get people to buy the game, but more to not overlook it. Great games being overlooked for weird reasons drives me crazy. And it seems pretty obvious that Fez is a great game.
Still not going to buy the game? Thatís your decision. Overlooking a great game due to a comment that doesnít affect your opinion whatsoever is your loss. As for me, Iím going to enjoy Fez this Friday.
