Japan is a crazy place. I’ve only spent a modicum of time there, and I would have stayed longer but the government isn’t exactly flexible on the time of your deportation, but in that time I picked up on a few things about the culture. These are a people of discipline, integrity, hentaicles, and who downright love the idea of overcoming difficult situations. This mentality often translates over unto their gaming ideals, which is why they love grinding and ridiculous learning curves. So, I have to say it came as a shock to me when I read that most Japanese gamers have been complaining about the difficulty of Atlus‘ action-puzzle-dating-sim-love-bubble-inducing Catherine.
