Hey Elronza Williams: At 49 yrs old I can say the same and totally agree.

Someone should tell Nintendo this so we can get the monumental backlog of great games that never make it over the pond..... in English.

I guess with me being 30 I prefer Japanese games to the fps crap here in the USA.

"It seems you hear nothing but doom and gloom about how the Japanese games industry is performing in the West.

Luminaries such as Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid, Snatcher) and Keiji Inafune (Mega Man, Resident Evil) have gone on record for their desire to appeal more to a Western audience."


2 people, thats it. Platinum basically said japan is doing much better than the west which is true.

Sont believe the western negative bias slant about japan

they are kicking ass

I prefer Japanese games over western releases for the most part. I somewhere between a hardcore and casual gamer, and Japan is able to fill that niche pretty well.

The only thing I find wacky is lack of Gundam releases, they look so good yet never are localized on either PS3 or PSP instead just Dynasty Warriors which is rather disappointing.

Anyway big fan of Japanese games, they've always brought fun and good entertainment.
