If anything, the sales in the U.S. for games here show people in the U.S. have far more interest in games than the Japanese do.


Lol there is like 528 million people in North America and you are comparing that to the population size of Japan.

In Japan, Atelier Meruru sold 82,585 in 6 days, Dead or Alive 5 more than 500,000 so yeah...

Final Fantasy


Casualized for the West. Made to be streamlined super linear like Call of Duty (a confessed major influence) Towns & shops removed, total party control removed, exploration mostly removed, etc

Star Ocean


Star Ocean on PS2 was pretty bad as well. Was never really a fan of the SNES/PSP ones anyway either. Possible Star Galaxy game coming up

Ace Combat


Made to appeal to the West. Even the 2nd Top Gun game copied its gameplay

Armored Core Ninja Gaiden etc.


More examples of trying to cater to the West's tastes but failing.

If japanese games were once good and had a more international appeal before, they sure as hell have become pretty ****** and 200 times more insular and creepy in these last couple years.

Just look at the list of upcoming japanese games, they are all obscure anime-based games on handhelds and anime sex games on PC, absolutly nothing on consoles aside from Fist of the North Star and some two or three obscure jp onry visual novels here and there.


There's always been those games. On PC, on PC-FX, on MSX, on NES, on SNES, on PC Engine, on PS1, PS2. It hasn't changed or gotten 'worse'. It's stayed the same. What makes it more apparent is the game series you LIKED that previously clouded over all those niche titles making you NOT notice them, are no longer around this gen.
They've either disappeared or moved to handhelds for reasons I stated earlier.

DESPITE that, you STILL have:

Gran Turismo
Street Fighter
Tekken
Virtua Fighter
Blazblue
Atlus games
Sonic Games
MGS
Platinum games (Vanquish)
Yakuza series
Binary Domain
Suda61 games
Koei games
Siren series
Ni No Kuni
Tales series
Dragon's Dogma
Malicious
NINTENDO

Im leaving a ton of games out but basically a slew of games you can choose besides the ones you keep choosing to focus on hating which you'll either never play anyway or haven't played at all...

i can't stand japanese/jrpg games. everything about them annoys me. that being said i don't care if others like them. i hate when people crap on the fps genre because of cod.

so i think it's just people hating people that hate the games that they don't hate.

The thing with many Japanese games this generation is not the ideas, those are usually very creative, it's the execution that's the problem. Gameplay is just as important as story and many Japanese games just aren't cutting it nowadays compared to the west.

And please tell where all the supposed Japanese hate is coming from, because I do NOT see it, other than from a tiny miniscule of places that you actually have to go looking for to find it.


You don't have to look for it when there's 3 "I hate Japan and everyone who plays Japanese games or has ever eaten Sushi in his life!!!!!1" threads on the first page of the PS3 board on a daily basis.

some people are racist, and some just don't want to try to understand their culture.
either way, it's usually closed off people


Tons and tons of video games after video games that are all about gigantic eyed scantily clad 12 year old look-likes and silly enormously boobed girls... That doesnt interest most people, shocking I know.

The almost complete majority of their video games are in the image of their cartoons silly, creepy and embarassing

I Said U.S. you clown. Canada is not a state.

In Japan, Atelier Meruru sold 82,585 in 6 days, Dead or Alive 5 more than 500,000 so yeah...




And what was Meruru's final sale number's in Japan genius? Answer: 180,000. That crap numbers for a game if it were sold like that in the West. +20K was sales in the U.S.
Nevermind the amount shipped which you should take into great consideration as well...

And most people will buy games day one you know that. How many sales does Call of Duty do in it's first week? How many sales did Gran Turismo do? Uncharted? Are you serious...

Dead or Alive 5 has a following worldwide and this one is a first time in years back to the Sony console instead of being a 360 exclusive
