It depends on tastes firstly, but i would say that japanese games always seemed to be based around the tech available, whilst western games were based around a vision and then cramped into available tech. where-as this gen, western designers can get the full scope and atmosphere of their games across (fallout), and in comparison japanese games, such as turn based rpg's, feel outdated. IMO.
The only person you humiliated is yourself.
I never humiliated myself. I humiliated gabrius twice, an achievement I am very proud of.
Even if that were true... You admitted you were not even an adult.
You proved the point of insanity by PMing a user on GameFAQs in a harassing manner
You think that is a life achievement. That in and of itself is humorous to say the least.
what were his previous usernames? i am curious.

Man, if you want to see what happened to JRPG games.. Take a look at Enchanted Arms.. 15 minutes into that game and I'm convinced that it is the WORST game I have ever played... It has the most blatant, flamboyant, annoying, homosexual character ever in the game... The Japanese are obviously trolling everyone.. They released this garbage just to watch all the Japanophiles in America praise it just because it's Japanese...
I would strongly disagree with the topic and its implications overall but part of the decline in some Japanese games can be attributed to a lack of play testing. Western games usually have a huge emphasis on play testing as a way to provide feedback for developers. If you ever get the time to listen to the audio commentary for the Valve games (which are really insightful btw) you'll hear them go on and one about the importance of playtesting and player feedback. Bungie has in house game testing every two weeks for their games.
(Also playtesting isnt focus-testing. Focus-testing is what usually leads to the homogenization of games that has proliferated this gen. Play testing is to ensure the game is fun and the player can understand the systems at work)
