Did anyone mention anything about that? Well anyway this is certainly true and has been for a long time. Japanese people suck at social skills and game development in large teams is as much a technical challenge as a people management one.The Japanese are no longer the best at game development.
Yeah I work a 9-to-5 (no let me correct that, 9-to-7 or later when needed) work here. I would not call the culture insane, you just need to understand where it comes from, and try to live in it and see what works for you. Over the years I have come to despise a number of things and appreciate others - I guess no matter where you live there's always a mixed bag of what you get out of it and what you have to compromise with. When I lived in Europe I was pissed up with a number of things that are now not a problem anymore in Japan, for example.How was fitting-into this somewhat insane culture for you? Do you work a 9-to-5 job there? Do you also have the obligatory company events?Kotaku is usually shitty in terms of contents but that article is right about many things.I wonder if a year is long enough for your experiences to turn sour.
In Japan they are indifferent to you, at least. In Korean movies all bad guys are always foreigners
