Capcom they've always been more geared towards western taste than other Japanese developers.

Yes, I had them in mind when I made this thread. :D Thinking about Resident Evil 2 Remake and DevilMayCry5 with Nico. :)

Also, I agree with Jason1637. Konami/Kojima and their MGS games come to mid as well. :)



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Capcom is a good example ... Dead Rising, Dragon's Dogma, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry.

I also think that From Software's Souls games seem to have a very interesting mixture of Western influences.

Square Enix tomb raider? Deus Ex?

Yes, but those games are made by Eidos.

So you are talking about Western setting/ context, and not style?

Because Western style games do not all conform to Western looking characters, Western dialogue, etc.

It can be gameplay styles or design made by and popularized by Western devs.

But also settings and culture from the West. I am talking about Japanese devs who make it so that we are amazed at how well they understand the Western culture they are depicting in their games. Use of slang, sense of humor, etc.

Those kind of things aren't anything to do with the dev though. It all depends on how good the localisation team is rather than the actual dev team.



I think Enix/Chunsoft nailed it back then with the first Dragon Quest. Perfect mix from Ultima and Wizardry.

Unless you can define what you mean by character design,  dialogue and themes,  then I'm afraid I'm still at a lost to what you constitute as a western style game. 

Characters don't look Japanese or Asian. Dialogue feels Western, use of idioms, casual talk (depending of Western country). The setting is in places in the West.

I am talking about when a game makes you feel: "I'd say this game was made by a Western developer, it doesn't feel like something you are used to coming from Japan and their culture."

Your first comment is not the same as your second. 

The latter is Western-style, because its a game that mimics the Western way of making a game. But that doesn't make the former statement defined as Western style because Western style games are not always centred on Westernism and Western iconography, and mannerisms, etc. 

A Western-style game can be about Asia, such as Ghost of Tsushima which follows Western conventions for making a game (presumably). 



Square Enix from the recent years, Capcom has a lot of franchises geared towards western audience and if I had to name 1 dev studio specifically which fits the bill, it'd be FromSoftware.

Well, the Japanese dev team hired them to do the job didn't they? :P

I understand what you are arguing and I agree. But the situation is that my thread is for all those arguments people here can bring about a Japanese game having "Western" influence, that is why my "first comment is not the same as my second" because you can talk about both Western influences in Japanese games in this thread.

Feel free to argue about your game having Western influences in here and feel free to make your case on how said game and Japanese dev qualify in the topic.
