To be fair, most of the crap probably doesn't make it out of Japan. I assume most Western crap doesn't make it to Japan either.
what im saying is look at the top franchises in the west, cod, fifa, madden, and assasins creedd they get milked a lot. cod to an extent where they are desperate at a point where they bring a remote control kamikazi car as a kill streak. you dont see a metal gear solid game coming every year, or a resident evil game.
i feel that japanese devs put more love and time into their games. yes they make some games noob friendly like ff13 or resident evil 5 but you cant blame when they are loosing money. on the other hand activision is making profit just because of cod.
Being in 3rd place never felt so good
