Negative World writes: One of the current hot topics in the world of video gaming is whether or not Japanese developers are still relevant in an increasingly Western-dominated industry. I am never quite sure exactly what is meant by “relevant” (sales? quality?), but I submit this for your consideration; until the West makes a game where you play as a high school girl elected president of your country who must then travel around in a huge flying robot liberating said country from its enemies, Japanese developers will continue to remain relevant to my gaming needs. Take that, Call of Duty clones!
