Their popularity is declining in the west.
Sokar, Eliot... lay off Tony. I can vouch for him. He's a top lad and a massive PS3 supporter. He's not an enemy here. - SomnusNemoris on the Sony Defense Force

Western games only succeed if they are well-advertised. Japanese games succeed through hype and quality.
Why? Because **** you is why.

Games that are insanely popular in the West fail much more in Japan than insanely popular Japanese games in the West: take Halo for example, or hell, those whole xbox 360 franchise.

Halo was actually quite popular in Japan.

Monster Hunter is poorly received in the west, despite being one of the most popular game franchises in Japan. That, and when was the last time you saw someone buy a dating sim?
