TV Shows - Japan (including animation), otherwise USA
Games - Japan (25 out of 50 for my top games, maybe the other 25 are USA, but unlikely)
Animation - Japan
Comics - Japan
Cars - Germany
Sports- USA
Technology- USA


Ok I'll put the USA for sports as well since I like to watch MLB, NFL and NHL.

O Canada?



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

The US wins me over. They have the major advantage of being the most populous highly economically developped country in the world. Countries in Europe have a hard time competing with the US due to the popluation difference, while the countries with populations high enough to compete aren't economically developped enough to have the same output anyway. US also has the advantage of english being the lingua franca so English content can be consumed most places on earth. The same could not be said for chinese content for instance.

Music: US
Movies: US
Games: US
Animation: US
Comics: Abstain. Don't read enough comics to vote.

Music: United States
Movies: United States
Video games: United States. If you asked me during the nes-ps2 era I would've defiinantly said Japan. MGS, KH, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Legend of Zelda, Mario, Metroid, FF, ect. Now these games hardly come out and sometimes they aren't even good.
Animation : United States
Comics: United States



Music: UK/US
Movies: US due to the broad scale of it. South Korea, France, and Germany are also strong contenders
Games: The US and Japan have both been able to create some of the most revered and critically adored games of all time. I lean towards Japan since they basically invented the video game industry as we know it today.
Animation: Japan. Anime is such a large portion of the Japanese culture that it manages to escape the stigma that animation is meant solely for children. Despite Japan being better, the US has been able to make many good pieces of animated media: (Archer, Rick and Morty, etc.)
TV Shows: UK/US
Comics: US. Marvel, DC, Archie, Dark Horse, Image Comics and IDW Publishing are huge juggernauts in the comic book business. Belgium, Germany, and Japan have created some great comics, but they have not had anywhere near the same success as American ones have had.

A lot of the US's success comes down to it's gigantic population, but other countries have the same amount of potential to make a product that resonates on a worldwide level.

I would say United States for all of them... I may be a bit biased. I might have said Japan for video games a decade ago... but they are way behind the West now...

I was thinking to post this exact comment.  Thanks for taking care of it for me.

MLB, NFL, and NHL are all majority USA. NHL HQ is even in NYC.

The USA has NHL teams, but the NFL doesn't have any teams in Canada! There are still far more Canadian players than Americans though and the NHL makes most of their TV revenues from Canada.
