Falcom released at least 10 great games in the pat 14 years.
They have 70 employees on low wage working for a bowl of food and they don't even time to masturbate

Western studios like Bungie wasted almost half billion dollars in two games and they are forgettable even by low IQ FPS gamers.

Bioware wasted 100 million dollars in the past 6 years and their games will be forever known as glorified AAA shovelware.

Why are japanese people so good at video games? Why are western people so stupid and retard when it comes to making video games?

Falcom released at least 10 great games in the pat 14 years.
And absolutely none of them featured a story that actually went somewhere or a villain that wasn't holding back.

You realise there are small-time Western devs making niche products too, right?

Juan Flores

western devs still haven't figured out that genres other than shoot big gun exist. the ones that have figured that out are all pretentious retard assholes who make some of the worst "games" that only act as a vessel for their political ideas.

basically execs are too scared to take any risks and indies are too up their own ass to actually make a video game

Are you excited for Trails of Cold Steel 3, Sup Forums?

Jackson Gonzalez

It's just a matter of game production costs have gone up and nobody can seem to grasp how to balance the hardware/tech advancement with the costs. Japan makes really shitty large scale games too.

Falcom is only good because they continue to make smaller scale games and like said there are plenty of small time Western devs too. You're just clearly a weeb who can't find the gems of both sides.

Justin Adams

And Undertale, Shovelware Knight, Meme Hyper Memer Drifter... all of them are 2D parodies of NES games that weren't even that great

When you have a ridiculously inflated budget you have to produce something that targets the largest possible audience in order to still make a product. This audience is the lowest common denominator. We are not the target audience, so it's best to just ignore them. There are plenty of indie and AA devs in the west making good products. I'm currently addicted to Divinity Original Sin 2, I haven't spent my time this week doing anything but hopping on the computer for 10 hours after work.

Oliver Morgan

OK, you don't like them. Move on and play what you like.

Why is it a problem that people like what you don't like, again? Why are they

Quit being an arrogant slob, it's faggots like you who end up justifying the anti-anime shitposter crowd.

I bought many indies, say a good indie and I'll check if I ever played. I regret buying Fez, Hyper Light Drifter, Shovel Knight, Hollow Knight,etc. I remember buying the ''10/10'' Firewatch and I stopped playing after 30 min
Bastion is another 10/10 by the media which I think is a 6/10 game which you can find better 2D games on PSP

When western studios make small budget games they end up with 8bit pixel art garbage with emotional memes to make you feel ''deep into the game xD"

I really fucking hate that Sup Forums has degenerated into either this, shitty meme-tier posts and samey OPs, generals OPs want to pretend are not generals, or endless console wars. I get a good thread to discuss a game and I watch it die fast, this one'll thrive because we keep biting.

I tried and dont like both btw, just want to hear your opinion.

Hunter Murphy

That's partly because you're cherrypicking and partly because Japan culturally has a huge fangame (doujin) scene, which has been cultivated with love for quite a while. But I do agree that too many devs in the west value retro nostalgia factor over an actually original or compelling experience. Still, it's not like it's slim pickings or anything, you just have to look. There are plenty of decent western titles.

Gabriel Sanders

You have shit taste, weeaboo, go back to your endless gratification slot machines with pedo pandering art, and far too many numbers and colours, for disguising their complete lack of good gameplay nor story.

Jaxon Perry
Jaxon Perry

It wasn't always like that. Around 10 years ago the US industry was dominating the market and Japs just weren't pumping out the amazing games they used to. Their entire market in video games was in a freefall. Fast forward to today and thanks to hubris western devs think they don't have to try anymore, so you get garbage like this. Meanwhile Japan is bouncing back big time and you can see this with Zelda BoTW, NieR, Nioh, RE7 and Code:Vein.

Dominic Green

western developers inject their own politics into their games because fuckknows, and create mediocre experiences that will be forgotten a few months after release

japanese developers genuinely want to create an artful yet challenging product that will still be talked about and played a decade later

Landon Lopez

You're not even considering the other side's argument at all, you're attacking the poster for presenting an opinion of neutrality, and you constantly go on about how logical and factual you're being about an opinion of yours.

Even if you genuinely believe you're not shitposting right now, you are. You have no intention of having a discussion or even a semi-compelling argument. Being so blatantly inflammatory in the opening post shows you never had one either. This is just an excuse to spam mindless vitriol at one another.

If Falcom games are so fun, why the fuck are you not playing them instead of essentially bitching other people aren't?

Lincoln Long

The combat is 10/10, something very hard to achieve in a turn based game. It doesn't get boring. The story is not bad but not great either but the way the game progress is how I remember playing SNES JRPGs when I was a kid. It flows naturally and there is no memes, straight gameplay all the time.
There are plenty of decent western titles.
Well I enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn but it's not something I would die for a sequel like Ys or Gravity Rush
I remember 10~15 years ago the japanese industry had a lot of shovelware and some big games like Final Fantasy, Pokemon and Star Ocean. Today we have big FF games and smaller budget titles with good production value like Toukiden, Ys, God Eater, Freedom Wars, Dragon Quest Heroes, Dragon Quest Builders... even Star Ocean 5 I found very interesting if you ignore the glitches

There is no point in neutrality if you ignore one side is right and the other is wrong.
Neutrality means that you don't know which side is right or wrong. Neutrality DOES NOT MEAN that both sides are correct.

This isn't a matter where one side has to be correct or wrong.

MOST matters in life are not a matter of right and wrong beyond a personal opinion of such.

You think western games are trash. Others think there are good gems, or the market itself isn't as bad as you're making it out to be. Meanwhile I can bounce between playing stuff like Disgaea and Front Mission and modded Fallout and Doom with ease. There's nothing wrong with having any of those views until you start trying to force your opinion that one is objectively better than the other.

There are better ways to feel better about yourself than forcing your opinion on someone to convince yourself it's fact.

I do agree some aspects of life are matter of opinion but not when it comes to some video games
You can't be a serious person and enjoy overwatch. If I enjoyed overwatch I would know all the time I played the game is trash.
There are games that you like but you know it's trash. If you ignore and insist some games are good just because you had fun with it then it's better to talk with a robot.

I'm going to be honest.

I bought Trails in the Sky. You're making me regret that. You're this fucking petty because people like games you don't like and it makes it hard for me to not want to be petty back and get a fucking refund for it.

The bad thing is, I absolutely don't believe Falcom deserves to be an unsung hero. I just got done reading up on how Square Enix completely fucked up Front Mission when the director tried to get it out to an international audience for them to enjoy, even if it wasn't big. Half the games are completely playable in English outside of plot, and those are the ones that DIDN'T come over. Falcom does a lot, I respect them for putting their games on PC and wanting them in a good translated state as well.

Faggots like you genuinely give them a bad rap because you only hurt their reputation with your militant nonsense.

There isn't anyone that doubts Japan is the best at making video games. Even if you don't like anime games most of their other stuff is great. US could be like that too if they went back to how video games were when you didn't give a fuck about what the 5% of women that pretend to play video games said.

Yeah, worse, you make all Japanese game fanbases look bad with this nonsense.

I don't care what you do or don't like, I care that you're wasting posting space for a good thread full of people talking about good shit. I care that you're blatantly bumping it with dumb shit to keep it alive to keep arguing how you're superior for liking Japanese games and you're totally not looking down on anyone unless they don't think exactly the way you do.

You're a jackass, user. If this is your posting habit, then you've never posted anything of worth to anyone, never "won" any of these arguments beyond the one in your head. You've only turned people off of the games you've liked. And that makes you a cancer to gaming in your own right.

Have fun in your echochamber, plebeian.

Falcom's drastically trying to modernize their franchises for a new audience since Falcom was pretty late to the mid-2010s anime trends and most of their existing fanbase are 25-40 year old men and not children.

Mason Jenkins

not children
Should have worded it better, Falcom's trying to aim for the modern 13-20 year old crowd, since most of their early 2010s games felt very 2000 with it's tropes. They're worried that not enough young people are buying their games anymore so that's why we've seen Trails become a lot more modern, Ys become a lot more modern, and the complete overhaul of Xanadu to be entirely modern.

Falcom survived from 1994 to 2006 selling cheap PC games with a good quality. Then they started to port and make for PSP and their popularity increased with the revival of Ys.

But the thing was, most of Falcom's audience up until the mid-2010s were people in their mid-20s who played Falcom games in the early 2000s, or people in their 30s and 40s who played Falcom games throughout the 80s and 90s.

Not a lot of younger newcomers bought Falcom games in comparison to older fans until Trails, Ys and Xanadu got extremely modernized.

Julian Perez
Julian Perez

Well only Trails and Xanadu are receiving modern paint
Ys didn't change much except for the party system which some people hate

Gavin Rodriguez
Gavin Rodriguez

Ys 8 feels a lot more modern with its tropes/archetypes than Ys 7.
The reason Falcom's modernizing was because their core audience that's kept them afloat is starting to get older and buying their games less frequently, and they realized that they don't have a large younger audience to replace them.

Falcom were pretty late with the 2010s anime trends.
