PSXE Poll Update: Japanese Devs Are Losing Their Touch
There's probably no denying it anymore.
In our recent poll, we wanted to know what gamers thought of the current state of the Japanese gaming industry. It has been under fire for the past three or four years, as designers keep trying to cater to the ever-growing Western markets. Worse, the quality of their games appear to be diminishing...rapidly.
In the past week alone, Ninja Gaiden 3 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City greatly disappointed most critics and gamers. And over the years, there appears to be a definite gap in production values and innovation when one compares Western and Japanese achievements. Unfortunately, it appears most of our readers agree, as the majority answered, "They're slipping...only a few games worth playing."
Well, we still have Metal Gear Solid (save us, Kojima!) and Gran Turismo, along with the enduring Nintendo mascots, right? This week, we just have to ask because everyone is asking: Should BioWare write a new ending for Mass Effect 3? Or if you don't think they should, do you at least think they should remember this fan backlash when creating future projects? Or maybe you just think everyone overreacted? Let us know.
