Japanese stick to what they know; Mario, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Monser Hunter.

"Japanese stick to what they like" would be more appropriate...

It is no secret that japanese people hate games with the theme of warfare and shooting you know.

lol and the west doesnt stick to key franchises ? give me a break .

Like said above , they have their taste , reflected in sales and library of titles ..
And we just have ours .

Wada only has conformation that he's doing only the right things. Nevermind that its quality has come under the same amount of fire as FFXIV.

HereticDan2813d ago it really didn't. Hell if you can't be bothered doing the leg work you can just check the reception summary on wikipedia if your feeling lazy.

Nah it just shows , like with CoD (pertinent example or not) , that a few here hated it and spoke loud , but overall most people were fine with it , or even liked it .

Being gunned down two whole weeks under the fire of meaningless obscure blogs and a few negative reviews is nothing to actual backlash from FFXIV's actual costumers .

It's no surprise really , a few western guys complains , no one bothers actually seeking feedbacks on japanese outlets (you know the biggest public for the game ? but who cares) , and decide that yeah indeed the world disliked FFXIV , despite great sales , and that FF is doomed .

I bought the game, I contributed to its sales and I didn't like it. DO you get my point? If not then go to AMAZON japan, use google trans and read some of its reviews...

For starters some of us dont need translators you know . I and a few others have been to various japanese community sites , forums and blogs .

And guess what ? even on some pretty harsh places like 2ch , besides some pretty vocal folks , FFXIII wasnt the most disliked and criticized game .. far from it .

Most people here got zilch when it comes to feedback from japanese gamers , about their feeling towards specific games and genre .

Hell the last time we did , it was as a counterpoint to the crapola of "jrpg sux , wrpg rules" or "japanese dont buy american consoles" articles we had the past year .
Unsurprisingly , when people got a taste of their own medecine , with article detailing what some j-gamers hate about wrpgs and fps , and their own numerous clichés , some folks here just got angry or on full on denial .
