They do have those mass population problems don't they? But so do most industrialized countries.

maybe weeaboos will serve to be useful if they want to keep making the same regurgitated crap for another 25 years.

The West have regurgitated more crap in the past 5 years than Japan did in the past 25 years.

Mostly because society over there dictates the older will lead the young, even in an industry like gaming where new ideas = more money, they let the old d00ds call the shots and make the same mistakes over and over eventhough the rest of the world has moved on.

Most of the younger guys have ideas, get a position at a company and basically/literally have no say in anything no matter their position. Thats why Japan is such a bubble and burst economy every 15 years, they run ideas into the ground til a whole board room goes bankrupt THEN ask that guy whos 5 years younger than the 65 year old for an idea lol. The rinse repeat.

This guy gets it. This is EXACTLY it. The reason Japanese games were so good way back there is because it was an easy industry for young people to start up their own companies and implement their ideas at a reasonable price and with a hope for great profits.

One of the best games of late, Tokyo Jungle, was made by a guy who was given funds by Sony to make his own studio through a program they made to find new creative blood; and this guy is younger than I am.

Japan's sempai / kouhai system needs to die and they need to learn how to discuss things openly instead of constantly trying to preserve the wa. I mean, at a meeting I went to between foreigners once, they actually had to post a sign explaining to the Japanese present that we weren't fighting or having an argument, but that this is how we discuss things in English-speaking societies. It's ridiculous.
