I think you misunderstood the article. It's not saying Japanese games are winning anything just that more U.S. gamers play Japanese games then Japan does. A statement that's been true for a few years now. One of the main reasons for it though is because our population is so much bigger then theirs.


and because Japanese tend to play on the go since they're barely at home which is why mobile and handhelds are more popular there.

Other reason is because most adults do not play video games as they are too preoccupied with work and success. The notion of playing video games (mobile gets a pass oddly) is still a negative stigma for adults, only accepted and relocated to Otaku, kids, and Hikikkomori (shut ins), unlike the West, which has gravitated out of the social stigma of video games being 'only for kids and nerds' from the 80s and 90's.

Wow, what a Dbag website that demands you to join the site just to read the story.
I'm slowly learning that the gamefaqs main boards is not a place for discussion, this is a place for sad lonely attention seekers to go and pick fights.

Gaming would be very boring without franchises like Pokemon, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, etc.

It's funny because American games like League of Legends, Starcraft, WoW, PUBG, and for a short time, Overwatch are more popular in Asia than they are "in the west"

Probably because western games are tired of being nickled-and-dimed by western publishers. So they are going to games where they get more value for their money. Japanese games have always put quality over monetary gain.

Did you not bother to read the article? It never says western game sells are dropping. In fact games like god of war are breaking records.

You're a pretty lousy troll if you can't even keep up with the latest anti Nintendo rhetoric.
