DualShockers’ WeebCast Episode 16: The Cool Factor of Japanese Games

This week's episode of DualShockers' own WeebCast discusses the factors that make Japanese games "cool" among those who enjoy them.

Whether Japanese games are “cool” or not depends a lot on who you’re talking to. Some consider them absolutely cool, others don’t. Lately, there has certainly been an increase in the former camp.

So what makes Japanese games “cool” for those who enjoy them? There are many factors in play, which have to do with creativity and even escapism from Japan’s strictly-regulated society. Today’s episode of our WeebCast is all about that.
