For decades, the term "youge" (洋ゲー) or "Western game" was pejorative. In Japanese, "you" (洋) is used to denote Western things, whether that be "Western music" (洋楽) or "Western clothes" (洋服). These words are not pejorative—not like youge has been.
"Even now, there have been people in Japan using the label youge- (Western games) with a terribly discriminatory meaning," Square Enix president Yoichi Wada said in 2009, while playing Modern Warfare. "I'd like them to try it once. If they play it once, they'd realize how incorrect that label is."
