GameDynamo - "The Japanese gaming industry has been getting a lot of flak as of late. First, we've had the creator of Mega Man himself, Keiji Inafune, publicly stating that Japan has lost its fighting spirit. After that, Team Coloblind's Ben Ruiz flat out called modern Japanese games trash. And, just recently, we have Hideo Kojima, the man behind the Metal Gear Solid series, criticizing Japanese games in general.
All of these arguments hold the same criticisms: that Japan has lost its creative spark. That the industry there now only appeals to a small minority, rather than a larger, worldwide audience. And for each person that has spoken out about this issue, they have received a serious backlash from their peers and gamers alike.
The truth is, however, is that those men are actually right."
