Depends what you want to play. Overall I'd say the best talent is European.

 

GTA

Batman Arkham

DIRT

Littlebigplanet

Rayman

DmC

Minecraft

Killzone

Horizon 

Witcher

Heavy Rain

Worms

Far Cry

Elite

World of Tanks

EVE

Dishonoured

Battlefield

 

A few of the many European games. Though many people often assume European games are American. It did get harder with publishers such as UbiSoft having studios outside of Europe too.

 

Europe's importance to videogames is often overlooked because it was such a separate ecosystem until the PS1.

Japan followed by North America.

This question should come with an example list of games for each region.  I just voted NA assuming that many european games were from there (I probably would have voted NA anyway, but still).  



People are putting UK together with Europe, I don`t know if this is accurate at all. UK seems to be it`s own thing, some british people I know don`t consider themselves Europeans.

And some people consider themselves to be trees... doesn`t mean they are.

The UK is definitely in Europe. And unless it drifts across the Atlantic in to the Americas it will always be part of Europe.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

They are about equal nowadays, but up until a few years ago I thught the Japanese made better games.

Probably Japan with Nintendo, Square Enix, From Software and maybe Atlus/SEGA if you consider their games to be AAA?



If you had asked me this in the 80s & 90s, I would have said "Japan." But today I would probably say "North America" as only Nintendo keeps me buying Japanese games in any significant quantity.

Of course, Japan utterly dominated back in the day, so that was a no-brainer. In addition to Nintendo, Capcom, Konami, and Square were just killing it with lots of quality releases, and even Sega put out some good games.

But as gaming transitioned from 2D to 3D, many great franchises of Japanese origin failed to break through the "polygon ceiling" and eventually faded from prominence, and as genres and tastes changed, I felt most Japanese devs just didn't "get" 3D. Nintendo and Square managed to largely avoid this, and indeed most of the Japanese-made games made in the last decade that I have on my shelf were made by Nintendo. The Japanese third-party software market has become increasingly quirky and niche in a way that usually doesn't mesh with my preferences, and as my tastes for 3D video games developed during the late 90s & early 00s, it got to where most of the games I enjoyed playing were made in the West, mostly America once Rare left Nintendo. Of the 30 current-gen games I have, 13 were made in America, ten were made in Japan (over half of those are Nintendo games), and seven were made in Europe.



Europe, its funny reading through this thread the ignorance from other continents that don't realise how much Europe make and think it's their Own continent that make those great games.
