Most people neither know nor care about it.

If I went into a GameStop and said to a stranger, "did you hear Tokyo Mirage Sessions is censored?" he or she wouldn't say, "what! That's bullshit." He or she would say "what's Tokyo Mirage Sessions?"

No, s/he would just be uncomfortable and walk away while looking at you weirdly.

Touche  

Actually I'd be lucky not to get a spray of mace in the face.

To me no, but I can understand if it is for anyone else.

Most the time it's not censorship,it's localization. People scream a fit these days. When I was growing up this happened all the time without us knowing and we still loved our games. Also the people typically complaining never planned to buy it. Just trolls.

Localization changes a lot of things. Not every place has the same general cultures and beliefs

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

Changing a shirt is still localization if they're changing a shirt from a minor. Like Lin in Xenoblade X. That wasn't censorship, that was localization. It's a very controversial thing to have a 13 year old girl in those outfits. If it was a rated M game and she was 18, yet they decided to change it, then it would have been censorship. Localization seen chanhes to fit the culture. It doesn't matter that they're Japanese games so they shouldn't be "butchered". Changing an outfit can be localization or censorship. Depends on the situation. Be lucky we get Japanese RPG's in general. And all in all, if you are upset about boobs getting covered, you really need a different hobby. 

Thank you.

Neodegenerate. Report me for what? I attacked your post not you so what are you reporting? because you don't like it? Ok then whatever. Again there is a difference.

If you are gonna say I am "petty and spoiled" (attacks on me, not my post) because of how I choose to spend my money then yes I am going to report you for it.  You don't want to be reported?  Don't go casting aspersions on people.

Actually I didn't say you are. I said you sound petty and spoiled by your posts. You keep failing to see a difference between two things. Starting to think you only see what you want to see instead of what is actually there.

Saying that I "seem" petty and spoiled based on what I say is like saying I "seem" ugly based on what you see in a picture.  You want to try to hide your personal attacks behind a "but I was deconstructing the post not the person" wall then at least build it a little better than calling the post dumb and then saying I "seem" petty and spoiled.

You wanna debate censorship I will do that all day.  Notice that I haven't once said your posts seem dumb, or baffling, or incoherent, or ugly; and yet I am able to move a conversation forward.  Where you have had us discussing your intention behind petty and spoiled for a few responses now.

Thank you for proving my point. You can't tell the difference between 2 things and see what you want to see. I never said Seem and Seem is different from sounding but you know what I have better things to do with my time than derail a thread. So forgive me OP for the sidetrack of the topic. I will address this no further.

Oh I am sorry "sound" petty and spoiled.  Same difference dude.  Wrap in in whatever bow you want.



If parts of a game I care about is removed, then yes

If it's something minor and less significant, then censorship won't have much of an impact

Nope, I dislike certain localization practices but I have never seen a game that had a core gameplay mechanic be removed for "censorship" to render it unplayable. Also using the term censorship to refer to video game localization is one of those "first world problems".
