Why else do Japanese play besides RPGs?

I mean seriously what do these gamers play?

I just do not understand that market. Here in the US and other spots, we play a little bit of everything.


ChickeyCantor4064d ago

dont be a hypocrite because ofcourse they also play other games.
its like saying americans only play Shooters and racers......

its just really loved like Americans love those FPS and racers right?

kewlkat0074064d ago

it' s fare to say hey do play other games, I wouldn't think they play 100%, if that is what you think I'm implying.

I think, more of variety is more accepted by American and European gamers.

Do you see many Japanese developers making shooters/FPS games?
But we do see western developers dabble in many new RPG's, even if it might be more westernized but a lot of new RPG's coming form somewhere other than Japan.

I'm sure there is more Genre's but Western developers are really pushing most genres. Your just now starting to see Japanese RPGs with more of a western flavor..

Anyhow there is more to it..I think you took me to literal, then again I play a little bit of everything, so I don't see where the hypocrisy is, especially asking a question..

ok notice that not all those are rpgs, is resident evil 5 an rpg?? is samurai warriors a rpg?? They just play more rpgs than america. what does america mostly play?


lonestarmt4062d ago

The Japanese actually do more original content than america, they add in a little rpg flavor and its called new. They have Zelda, okami, katamari damacy, loco roco, shadow of the colossus, and not to mention made the best third person game ever resident evil 4.

So in a month White Knight Story's interest has shot up, GT5 is off the map, halo3 is back in it and the rest is basically the same

Why do we care about Japan's Top 20?

Isn't this an English-speaking site?


@ Vertius

Because 'Sengoku Musou 2 Moushouden,' 'Shin Sangoku Musou 5,' 'Ar tonelico II: Sekai ni Hibiku Shoujo Tachi no Souzoushi,' and 'Layton Kyouju to Akuma no Hako' seem like fantasic titles. I'm sure they'll be system sellers in English speaking countries.

Vertius4064d ago

Because Japan is the second-largest market in the world, and a lot of important developers and publishers are based there.

no console has ever won the war with out the japanese accepting it. So what they are looking forward to buying is important because it helps shape (not completely determines mind you) what system gets what games everywhere else. If the 360 were more popular in japan it would probably be getting more japanese games such as MGS4 or FFXIII.

Vertius4063d ago

You forgot all the other 17 titles on the list. If you don't think Metal Gear Solid IV and Final Fantasy XIII will veer the market one way or another, you're deranged.

And Prof. Layton is meant to sell well in Western countries. Many analysts think it's set to be the next Brain Age.
