Western games only succeed if they are well-advertised. Japanese games succeed through hype and quality.

There are a bunch of western games that succeed in Japan.
Same goes for Japanese games in the west.

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.

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?
