Why Western-style RPG Dragon's Dogma wound up being such a big hit in Japan

Polygon: "Dragon's Dogma, released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last May worldwide, was a semi-orthodox role-playing game with very unorthodox origins. Produced by Hiroyuki Kobayashi and his internal team at Capcom, the game was portrayed to Western gamers as a Japanese Skyrim, an attempt by a Japanese developer to create a serious Western RPG that can compete with the big boys.

So why did it wind up selling half a million copies in Japan and, well, not quite so much anywhere else?"

Because the UK like the US has no idea what a good game is unless the lamestream media tells them what to like and buy.

im from the US but id be inclined to agree. except i love fantasy rpgs and bought dogma, wasnt impressed. the combat needed way more polish. not sure if any recent updates fixed it though, i plan to give it another shot soon

I'm from the US as well so I was simply speaking from a lifelong experience.

Most Americans are idiots, plain and simple, buying whatever their peers have or wanting the newest shiny toy because the lady on the magic box told them they need it.

But I digress, this isn't the forum to debate the decline of intelligence worldwide.

OT: to each their own, I loved the combat in DD, one of the best combat gameplay in the rpg genre, imo.
