Fez creator defends Japanese games comment

Fez creator Phil Fish has defended remarks he made at a GDC event, where he claimed that Japanese-developed games "suck".

A Develop report from a screening of Indie Game: The Movie, which Fish appears in for Fez, noted that the developer said "your games just suck" in response to a question asked by a Japanese developer during a Q&A following the film.

But speaking to Kotaku, Fish defended what he said, although admitted he could have delivered his remarks more carefully.

"My delivery could have been more tactful," Fish replied via email, "but I do think most modern Japanese games are god-damn awful," he said.

He added: "This whole thing is being taken out of context and blown way out of proportion."

The full story on Fish's remark and its context can be read on Develop. Fez currently has no date, but was recently submitted to Microsoft for release.
