With many of the major Japanese developers going through so much drama like Capcom and Koonami I have started to think lately about the future of the art form that is games and especially Japanese games. I mainly prefer Japanese games and the western titles I do like are from smaller devs like Wayforward or Lab Zero. Now it seems to be the last few years that many of the bigger Japanese developers have been not as good, with really the only exception being Nintendo (who has problems but they have little to do with the actual games being made, which are still good as ever). It seems like many of them are trying to be too Western, without realizing there is always a market for Japanese games in the west. I don't need to name a ton of examples but some include Resident Evil, Castlevania (I know that's debatable), Final Fantasy (also debatable), and Devil May Cry. Now maybe my opinion is in the minority, maybe most people are fine the way things are. I can't help shake the feeling that just something has gone wrong the last few years for bigger developers in Japan, and I think it comes down to them trying to be more like Western games. As someone who doesn't like the big AAA Western titles, I find this saddening. Do you think there is a problem? If so, what is the solution? For me, I just want to play good, deep games again that are fun that are from these big developers.
