Interesting how? Personally I never see (or think) any American companies to last. They're too profit-driven and too puritanical imo. If MS did indeed bought Nintendo it would've been an end of wacky Japanese gaming culture imo. Just look at Sony's Playstation. After moving Playstation's HQ to California, Japanese devs started self-censoring and shit.

I for one do not want to see Nintendo bought out by MS, all of Nintendo exclusive are a lot more "valuable" than a lot of MS exclusives.
Bad enough seeing Sega just being a third party publisher/development studio.

MS buying Nintendo. That would have been a disaster in my opinion. Nintendo is unique and original in comparison to any current or even previous consoles. Buying to get rid of a competition. That's how I see it.

I think at some point in time MS wanted to buy almost every other tech company but wisely did not.

Everything they did buy somehow melts into the company never to be seen again.

Nintendo not profit driven? try getting refund after buying games from xbox or microsoft store, and then try refunding from nintendo... You''' see who's more profit driven.

I agree that Nintendo is fucked up in terms of return policy/refund and game cost (Switch games basically never going on in sale) but looking at Sony too I feel it's mostly a Japanese anti-consumer thing.

But compare that to western publishers like EA, 2K and whatnot. Same old bland shit year after year. And kowtowing to loud minorities that cry "offensive this, offensive that" who'll not even buy and play the games.

Corporations will always try to make profit but Nintendo at least makes their dough with their characteristic Japanese wackiness.

So are there many modern Nintendo games only released in Japan because they are too offensive to americans?

Fortunately not. From my research most of Nintendo's past censorship had been initiated by Nintendo of America, the american branch. Even going back the law for blurry censorship in adult Japanese content was also initiated by occupying American govt.

Recent self-censorship in Japanese games would most likely be Sony's fault. No wonder since Sony moved its playstation HQ to "liberal & progressive" California few years back. But if I'm being honest I'd say the biggest factor is China. Just think about it. Instead of fighting loud minorities in western countries and censor regulatory hurdles in asian countries, it'd be just cheaper to swallow the bitter pill and produce self-censored content from the ground-up.

This is how I understand it:
Not neccesarily Americans but it's really about any group or "Movement" that has a problem with something in the games concerning what's typically Japanese as in from a cultural viewpoint - And of course the Japanese themselves ain't budging an inch over it.
However I'd have to guess the vast majority of who's offended are indeed American.

Anything from female characters with over-exaggerated "Features" to whatever else they have a problem with, they complain hoping the Japs will cater to them....
But it's all wasted breath.

Instead of dealing with them, the Japanese just keep it at home and do as they do, things they know would be an issue they don't release here and yes, alot of the censorship is mandated too by the gov and Nintendo itself has to play along.

Had to do a bit of research to find an example and came up with the following:
There was controversy about a game called "Atelier Ryza" a few years ago that had SJW's going after it over the appearance of a certain character in the game and saying the main character was a problem too.
Of course the Japs didn't listen and as long as it was "Legal" they didn't change a thing about it.

This is the newest iteration of the game and yes, the fanservice is still there as the following makes perfectly clear:
Atelier Ryza 2 review: Ryzing to the challenge | FULLSYNC

Alot of what's in it is actually based on what's popular in Japanese culture and that does drive sales in Japan so....
I mean - There ya go.

EDIT:
As to if that was a factor in MS not buying Nintendo at the time, only those guys can really say.
If it does happen it does and you'd probrably see the effects of it in short order.

I think we're slowly coming to an insight that these SJWs are just classic trolls that have been given way too big amounts of exposure, and have way too much time and opportunity now.

They can't handle it, its like a garden weeds, the more you allow it to exist, the bigger it gets until you have nothing that even looks like a pleasant garden, left.

Exterminate it, its the only way and you gotta be thorough, every time, rip it out root and stem. That is what creativity and freedom actually means: art is by definition something that forces you to reflect in one way or another, something that challenges your notions of the world, the people around you, etc. And it also represents culture, with all of its friction and different points of view. The whole SJW culture just steps right over that thinking there is some universal truth greater than that. There really is not, no matter how much you dislike stereotyping as a person. We're already seeing how bland stuff becomes if it has to cater to 'everyone's feelings'. It won't last and I reckon 2021 will be the year of extermination, maybe 2022, probably somewhere alongside the mass vaccination of the public and the reinstatement of parties and actually you know, living.

I think the Japanese understand this on an even deeper level. They know they're different, and they know its a selling point for their culture, as it has always been, a form of elevation without 'acting superior' like we do in the West. We feel a deep need to express our values, to show identity for others and even push it onto them (to profit in some way or feel better about ourselves, 'haves and have nots' etc.), the Japanese only have that need internally, with zero desire to do missionary work with it.

In a twist, Nintendo 64's seemingly most offensive game, Conker's Bad Fur Day, is presently only available on Microsoft platforms. Great game, wish that type of platformer was made more often. N64 had some great stuff in that platformer genre: Zelda OoT/MM, Mario 64, Jet Force Gemini, Space Station Silicon Valley, DK64, etc, but certainly CBFD had the most humor. Also my understanding was, as a Rare produced game, it was designed by Westerners, not Japanese. It was probably the most explicit game on that family friendly console. Nintendo games have never been particularly offensive to my understanding. Nintendo is rather bland and family friendly, particularly for a Japanese company.

A Japanese game studio that made this gem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cho_Aniki_(video_game), which I imagine would be particularly offensive to westerners with its campy homo-eroticism (ironically also available in some form from Microsoft - Project EGG)

Then there are plenty of explicit content Western studios, such as Mystique producing this comedically offensive trash porno game https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Custer's_Revenge on Atari.

I really doubt that a hypothetical scenario of American Microsoft owning Japanese Nintendo would result in a decrease in sexually explicit content from Nintendo. What sexually explicit content has Nintendo ever made?

Has anyone actually encountered a "SJW" in real life? Everyone seems to enjoy ranting about them. Maybe explicit content censorship criticism should be viewed the way Rockstar games views it: "No such thing as bad publicity". Rockstar has embraced being offensive and if anything it has increased their sales revenue.

You know who should? Apple. They should buy Nvidia too... after Nvidia buys ARM. lol

I'll never understand Apple's laziness and neglect with gaming (outside iOS at least).

Never thought about that. Maybe you're on to something. But they did try to court gaming a few times. Just badly. Even tried to make a console with Bandai back in the day. But Nintendo? That would be a coup. And I think they compatible enough cultures. More than MS at least. Japanese love Apple.

You could be right Apple is as Americana as it comes. I just don't see Nintendo allowing that but money (the love of) is the root of all evil. So just like I never saw Disney (Thank You) actually buying Lucas or even Fox it could actually happened.

You think Disney buying Lucas was good? Man, I loved Lucas. Even the prequels. And it seemed like he did it purely out of grief.. like he thought people just didn't want him around.
But in any case, I don't think Nintendo and Apple would be as tasteless as either.

I say it was good because since Disney has taken over the license we have had Jedi Fallen Order, Battlefront 2 (with a Campaign), Squadrons and Mando. It was not good because realistically there will be a certain amount of employment attrition. Lucas though was just concerned with making money and had no real interest in new content. Do you think it was not a good thing for the consumer that we have such quality content to enjoy?

Not at all. And I care more about an artist's control than consumers. And as for sitting on it, he made a long series as it is, after the prequels (Clone Wars). Which was already more than I ever expected anyways. I never really thought of it as an open ended setting, and nothing that's come out under Disney has proved me wrong. They knew it themselves, and knew how anchored it was to a big good vs evil tale of Skywalker and Palaptine.. and they deliberately took a dump on them in a deluded attempt to "move forward". I hope this doesn't happen to Lord of the Rings one day.. where somehow there's "a second ring" and Mordor was "just a prank a bro".
