@Vega37 “The CCP already influences content made by American and European companies simply by being a massive source of consumers devs have to edit content for just so they can release it in their market”
Sure but non-American devs have been doing that for years to get games released in America. Costume edits, character age changes, dialogue changes, edited character backstory, changing religious symbols, even things like ‘Holy’ in older FFs being renamed to ‘Pearl’.
I guarantee you that almost every game you’ve played that was Japanese has been changed for a US market in some way, even if it’s just pointlessly changing the age of a character like Penelo in FFXII. And typically those changes are carried into the European version, which is even worse.
