'The problems with Japan games are simple, most of them aren't very good games' claims Platinum Games writer
Japan studios cannot compete with the investment and manpower used by many Western game developers, claims Platinum Games writer Jean Pierre Kellams.
Kellams, who has worked on games such as Vanquish, said he felt developers in the country didn’t create “exceptional” titles, and struggled to find a way to compete with its North America and Europe-based rivals. particularly in the triple-A sector
“The problems with Japanese games aren’t that they are Japan games or that they are Westernised games,” he said on Twitter, as reported by Siliconera.
“The problems with Japan games are simple: Most of them aren’t very good games. People don’t buy those. Most games from anywhere aren’t good. That’s why exceptional means exceptional.
“Most Japanese publishers/developers can’t invest money/manpower enough to compete with exceptional Western productions. Risk is too high. It costs money and sweat to make things stand out, but it also raises the risk. Then marketing is crazy expensive after that.”
