Cultural Differences and Video Games

Different countries and cultures have different values and different ways to express them. This can be seen very easily in different games. Besides what country develops the game, different countries hold to their own values and their likes within their games. Football and first person shooting games such as Madden and Call of Duty are huge in the United States and what could be more American than football and guns? Japanese games have their own distinctive artistic style. British games such as Grand Theft Auto focus on British wit. This generalization doesn't hold true to all, but it is definitely something to think about next time you're choosing your game. Follow the below link over to Kotaku for the article.
