Easily Western developers. Japan is just becoming less and less relevant. The Japanophiles on this board are in huge denial about it but it's pretty clear Japan just isn't anywhere near what it once was in the gaming industry. They should just stick with kiddy handhelds and stop putting out their garbage on consoles.

My absolute favourites this generation were.... Super Mario Galaxy, Xenoblade, Pokemon Black/White, Metal Gear Solid 4, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.

Jap: 6
West: 1

We have a clear winner.

shinobi 3ds


Not to butt in, but that's a Griptonite game. Griptonite is not Japanese.

QFT. Good Japanese games are now the exception rather than the rule. Nintendo, Platinum games and a few others still get it right but overall the big names like Square have gone down hill. Western games exploded this generation with the dominance of games like CoD, Borderlands, and most wrpgs.

I'd agree without the acerbic last bit. I don't know what the actual trigger was, rising costs of development probably, but Japan's really fallen off the radar by and large. It's not dead or anything or even in danger of becoming such, but it has become both much less prolific and much more insular than it has been in the past.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
