You are right one could exist for the anti-censorship crowd but guess what, it doesn't
Probably because people who don't have problems with the things that are getting censored have better things to do with their time than making a chart of arguments and thinking it is funny.
More often than not, people who don't care say their piece and move on without getting hostile about it until they get attacked.
Why should anyone have to go to the Internet to look up removed content from a game, especially considering it's not just the visual elements that have been removed, FE F is a good example where characters have been completely rewritten, as well as missing dialogue from a support conversation! And those are just two examples of a multitude that have already been found.
First, I didn't say they SHOULD have to. I just said they can. The point being that, unlike censorship in news, and the real world, stuff that gets edited in games is readily available online for stuff like this. You can still see it, just not the original way. It isn't missing from the world.
As for the Dates localization, that isn't even largely censorship. The bulk of the stuff people are mad about in Fates boils more directly down to memes and dialogue that isn't censoring anything, but rather being a dumb localization.
Petting removed? Censoring. Changing dialogue to garbage? That is just garbage, not censorship. They weren't protecting kids, they were just thinking they were clever. A whole separate problem.
Additionally you also have to think of it this way, if the game wasn't cut would anyone actually be genuinely shouting that they wouldn't be buying it because those elements were left in, the answer to that is no, but with the removal there is going to be people who will boycott
Well that's the thing. They are less vocal. They'd exist, but it would mostly be relegated to GameFAQs and a few people.
The problem is, when these come out in Japan, people run their shit. Sites post "BORDERLINE CHILD PORNOGRAPHY" and create an uproar about Fates, Xenoblade, Fatal Frame and what have you. They publicize things that are NOT issues and write editorials on how they are. Or like how Nintendo was a big bad guy for "removing" gay relationships (i.e., fixing a game-breaking bug) from Tomodachi Life. Sites don't know what they are saying and they paint bad pictures.
People then post it all over social media getting upset, also not knowing what they are talking about.
So Nintendo is put in an extremely awkward position. Thing is, the negative press from "boo hoo you removed boobies and changed words" is generally less damaging to sales than "Nintendo supports perverts, degrades women and this or that hot topic".
It isn't that Nintendo is right, but the fact they lose regardless as far as publicity goes. They just go for the one they think is easier to damage control and will upset the least people.
For as loud as people are about Fates, it still sold 5x Awakening in US on launch weekend, so while we got an undesirable version of the product, the press of removals clearly didn't hurt that bad. And this isn't because those 300k+ support censorship or think it is okay to ruin it. It is because they just want to play the game, and at the end of the day, most of these things don't ruin the experience for them because they may not have used them anyway, don't miss them, don't know or care to, etc.
People can try to do something about it, but avoiding the English release isn't going to fix the problem, since they will only see it as disinterest in the game/series/genre, not the reasoning behind the lost sale, unless people speak to THEM about it.
And unfortunately, 90% of the outlets people bitch to are not run by high enough people to have any weight. The guy running their Twitter can't fix it or do anything.
