Forums - Gaming Discussion - Japanese Developers are totally destroying Western Developers in Quality titles so far!

And keep in mind metacritic doesnt even allow japanese reviewers into their score, so they dont even have any kind of support from home like western games have, in fact almost all of metacritic score are western reviewers


Yup, that's something relevant.

Metacritic is a Western interpretation of the games, the natural cultural difference with Japan/Asia definitely does Japanese games a disservice against Western games. That's a real problem within it.

CD Project Red is Polish, not Japanese.



Gotta figure out how to set these up lol.

Outside forums aka real world begs to differ though.

You can judge games solely based on meta critics but western games imo are of better quality than japanese games overall. Sure both sides have their gems and duds but overall I think western gaming is way more mature (in a sense that they have a better understanding of the medium) and try more kinds of games than the japanese.

It does. The reviews have to be in English, but that doesn't means they aren't allowed to. Also, it's not like the Japanese would rank Japanese games higher just because. That disqualifies them as reviewers... so it's nonsense...

Also, yes... PS2, Wii... they were both casual kings and that's the problem with the Xbox brand. People always see it as hardcore, not casual, and they can't shake that reputation without being both, so they are doubly handicapped...

Except that a lot of reviews have only a shortcut written in english but the main site or the article are in italian, czech and other western languages i have seen a lot of times.

They arent allowed it looks to me, by the size of Japans gaming market it should be like a lot bigger. And if a japanese game gets released in the west there should allready be a review up from famitsu, 4gamer Because its allready out in japan. Anyways my point simple is that metacrtic is a very fishy organisation owned by gamspot



This is not a surprise.

They just need to change the Japanese gamer mentality from those lame mobile back to core gaming.



Might want to specify that this list only counts games that are either new gen exclusive or at least came out at the same time as their old gen counterparts, otherwise stuff like GTAV, flower, Rayman Legends, Diablo III, and Journey would count. Also going to assume remakes and portables don't count for lack of Super Mario 3D Land, Fire Emblem Awakening, Persona 4 Golden, The Legend(s) of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D, Wind Waker HD, and A Link Between Worlds, Pushmo, and The Last of Us: Remastered would count.

And you get the prize for being the 10th dude who didnt read the OP before saying Witcher 3 isnt Japanese, he clearly stated that amongst the top rated games on metacritics only 1 wasnt Japanese and than he lists the games and Witcher 3 is the only non Japanese in there, what a shoker.

I figured everyone who's being honest with themselves knows the difference between current gen games and last gen games.

obviously a game like Last of Us which released on PS3 before PS4 launched and was ported a year later can't be considered a current gen game by any stretch of the imagination.

That's arguable, considering many new gen games, like Metal Gear Solid V, are fully featured and fully playable on last gen hardware.
