"It's pretty apparent by now that Japan has lost some footing in the world of gaming. There never were popular American-made consoles, and games made by Americans used to be few and far between. Now, America is the focus of the gaming market, thanks to its large number of gamers, and Japanese designers must figure out a way to grab their attention. Tecmo seems to be making an unusual leap. They are releasing a Western-style third-person shooter, Quantum Theory. You can smell the desperation."
