The problem is that both sides of the Pacific have different standards of what makes a good game. There are many big sellers/good reviewed games in Japan that wouldn't even get notice in America (Love Plus, Hatsune Miku games, Recent Shining games, etc)... and there are also games that sell great and win all kinds of awards over here Japan has no interest in. Even Dynasty Warriors games still get super high reviews in Japan while the West gives them terrible reviews for being repetitive now. Its just tough to make games that both cultures like... which leads us to Japan making games for Japan and the West making games for the West. Making "Better games" doesn't really mean they'll make games the West is interested in at all.


Monster Hunter as well. Best selling game on the PSP and it was never even brought over to the US. Most PSP/Vita games are stuff Japan loves but America probably wouldn't which is why the system is already floundering in America.

Overall I'm satisfied with Japanese came coming out. I'd play more western games if they were stuff I actually liked, but I'm not going to be one of those "here's the top 10 things WRPGs need to do to be saved" and then it all boils them down to being turned into JRPGs. Obviously Americans like those games already so they can play them and I can play my stuff. Then again the western games I love all died out about 20 years ago (point and click adventure games) so maybe I just went through that "nothing to play" phase earlier than other people did. (As an aside, I hope the new Leisure Suit Larry remake is good)

Monster Hunter 1,2, and Frontier on the PSP were brought to America. With Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii even doing decently here. Now Monster Huner Tri Wii U has been released with 4 probably coming as well.

According to this, the best selling one wasn't.
