Why Japan suck this generation?

Most of the games i own now are western, especially racing games, games like Split/Second and MotorStorm: Apocalypse are better than any Japanese racing game, what happened to Japan this generation?

Called Gaming Trends.

And generally being a bad gamer.

Japan is fine. It's just that FPS became big this gen and Japan isn't good at making FPS. Japan is still better in every other genre cept for RTS

I wouldn't say Japanese games suck this generation, but they have clearly been surpassed by the West for the first time. I think the problem is more financial than anything. As gaming becomes mainstream, it's just another cog in the entertainment industry. Compare movie budgets in the US to ones in Japan. There is a massive gap. With movies, it's not as big a deal though, because a good writer/director can get a lot of mileage out of his/her resources. The same can not be said for console video games. A lower budget either means the game is lacking content or poorly made (comparatively), unless it's for iOS and costs $1.

What is sadly comical here is, I've found more things to do in "low budget" titles than I have in the big AAA games.

What is with this borderline-racist obsession over hemispheres and nations you people have? Can't you just enjoy games? No, you can't. Because apparently everything is 'dumb' and 'sucks' (yes, that has an 's' in it!) or 'lame'.

It's pathetic. What's next? Why are the blonde lead writers worse than the blue eyed music composers!?
