Japan matters to a lot of us, as not all of us enjoy Halo, Grand Theft Auto or Dungeons & Dragons. Speaking for myself, 90% of my console game collection is Japanese.
Edit : Oh, and you aren't right 90% of the time outside of your own biased perspective.
1) I am going based on worldwide trends and total sales. And D&D? They still make those? Well, 0% of my collection is Japanese, I have a game made in Europe. Mostly american. If you look at games they don't impact us as much as they used to.
2) Saying I'm wrong doesn't mean I am. ;)
You are telling me you don't own any games made by: Sony, Nintendo, Sega, Konami, Capcom, Square-Enix, Bandai, Namco, etc? Do you even play games, or do you just argue on forums about them?
I should ignore this....So anybody who doesn't own games by those companies must not play games? Jeez...great logic. But since I haven't looked in a while I will double check. And no, I don't own any sony games because my PS2 broke.....was broken by my sister and I on;y have an xbox now. And I gave my GC to my nephew..even then the only game I played was RE4. There maybe a capcom game in doubt it,
Here is a list-Used to be larger..I had more for the PS2.
ESPN NFL2K5 - SEGA
NCAA FOOTBALL 2005 - EA
MADDEN 2005 - EA
GTA DOUBLE PACK AND SAN ANDREAS - ROCKSTAR
HALO - BUNGIE
SEGA GT 2002 AND JETSET RADIO FUTURE - ONE WAS SEGA NOT SURE ON THE OTHER..DOESN'T MATTER, THEY CAME WITH THE SYSTEM AND I NEVER PLAYED THEM.
STATE OF EMERGENCY - ROCKSTAR
THE SIMS BUSTIN OUT - EA
SOUL CALIBUR 2 - NAMCO
THE ELDER SCROLLS 3: MORROWIND - BETHESDA SOFTWORKS

15 games and only 4 are not american and in all fairness I only bought 2 of them. Despite what nintendo told you, there ARE game makers outside JAPAN!
