A booth info bulletin posted on the Tokyo Game Show website has an overview of what types of games to expect at this year’s show. Compared to last year, there are less RPGs at Tokyo Game Show 2010.
See, this is exactly what I'm talking about...sigh.
I couldn't agree more. *HUGE sigh* I'm an RPG fan, and I really really hope that Final Fantasy XIV and Dragon Quest X will be showstoppers :)
I bought a new PC just for to get new RPGs , there are tons of nice RPGs on the PC (oldies and new ones too) to hold me while i wait for the PS3/360 rpgs , i eat RPGs too fast :3 Indeed i am even replaying some oldies with mods , they never get old :]
why they are ignoring JRPG genre? FF13 sold three times more than Mass Effect 2 (6 mil. vs 2 mil.), Dragon Quest 9 for DS sold 4 mil.+ in Japan only, for comparison sake with WRPG - Dragon Age sold 2.6 mil. (PS3+360 combined worldwide)

I guess the world Might be ending soon forreal. All we hear about is those damn SHOOTING games. Is it a sign of things to come ahead?
Nothing new, really.
WHY!!!!! Come on now i need my constant rpg fix. Damit why is it so hard for devs to see that it is still alot and i stress ALOT of people who want those rpgs of old
It doesnt include nintendo (at least 5 rpgs), nisa, or alot of other companies so it really doesnt matter
And more reason to hate Call of Duty/Halo lovers for their obsession with shooters. Causing every developer to become Westernized
i'd like to thank westerners for loving one GD genre this generation causing eastern developers to try and adopt their games towards us >.<; damnit i want my JRPG fix man.
its just plain and simple, THIS GEN IS MORE FOR FPS thats all. I aint surprise with this.....
Its still rpgs too but alot of companies with rpgs arent doing TGS Hell nintendo has 6 and they arent doing tgs. And alot of games arent announced yet like disgaea 4 or Valkyria chronicles 3 so they arent part of the list
The market is flooded with bland shooting games. It sucks but thats just how things are right now.
Yay for me
Really, just shooters, as if we don't have enough already? Personally I'd like to see a Demon's Souls 2 or whole new ip based on the action rpg genre.
Frankly as a survivor of the faceless jrpg tidal wave that swept the landscape from the snes up to the ps2 I'm glad to see less of them. Does that mean I want fps'? No. Would it effin kill somebody to make some platformers, mech games, space games ala Wing Commander, 3rd person (non-shooting) action games, etc?
*Sigh* Halo 3 and MW2 pop into the world and everyone turns into shooter game fanatics
How sad :( I'll those days when the RPG genre was on the top. In a way, it reminds me of act 3 in MGS4 ** spoiler ** when Big Mama tells snake about those stupid FPS games that kids love being used as image training. And before they know it, they find themselves in the middle of a warzone fighting proxy wars that have nothing to do with their lives **sigh** I can see it happening.
