The Japanese just don't have the intimate cultural association with guns that the Western world, particularly USA does.

I'm not saying they can't make a good shooter, they just don't have the impetus to do so.


They have a ton of games, movies and anime with loads of guns. To be quite honest, it's really somewhat of a mystery why there hasn't been a large Japanese developer that tries to push a big FPS title. I remember some FPS game from Square-Enix for the PSP, but it was decent at best, I read. Outside of that, I can't really think of anything recent. Maybe there's some obscure Japan-only FPS?


I just told you the reason. It's not a mystery at all to people who have the most basic knowledge of Japanese history. They just don't care about guns and shooting as much as Westerners do. Guns aren't a cornerstone of their cultural identity. That doesn't mean there is no interest, just relatively not nearly as much.

For the West, guns are either a symbol of freedom or conquest. For Japan, they are a symbol of Imperialism and hubris.
Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

How would they spice up the formula? By giving the characters salon fresh hair, girly clothes, and awkward dialogue?

I'll stick to my bro dude shooters.

Agreed.

Vanquish was the single best TPS I've played.
