Famitsu Questionnaire For The West: Do You Like Recent Japanese Games?

Japanese magazine Famitsu has released a questionare asking western gamers whether they are enjoying recent Japanese games and also what do you like about Japanese games. It’s interesting as most of their surveys are naturally targeting Japanese gamers but this one is for those of us in the west who play Japanese games from companies such as Nintendo and Atlus etc. To participate, copy and paste this link into your browser:

Hello, everyone!

We are WEEKLY FAMITSU, a Japanese video game magazine.

Today, we would like to know what game players around the world think of Japanese games. We are going to ask you about your image of Japanese games, whether or not you like Japanese games in general, and whether or not you have played Japanese games recently.
We would love to hear from you! We appreciate it very much if you could answer the following questionnaire.

Please submit it by Wednesday March 16, 2018 at 23:59 PST.

  1. I mean, I would argue that Japanese games have been better for the last few years. I mean, there are only a handful of Western AAA games that have been real stand-outs, like Overwatch or the Last of Us, everything else is just recycled stuff for the most part. Compare that to Persona 5, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Breath of the Wild, Nier Automata, etc. Western have lost a lot of their innovation outside of indie games.


    1. The only thing Japanese devs need to work on are the smaller budget titles.
      I hope Octopath sets a standard of quality, because I really wouldn’t mind buying smaller budget RPGs with less of a focus on mechanics and spectacle and more on story like the Lufias, Mothers and Golden Suns again.
