* A game that is NOT an MMO or a fighter.

With the latest revelation regarding Nintendo's ponderings on Mario Maker, I've been wondering if the Japanese studios have even a rudimentary understanding about online capabilities of games.

Can you name one Japanese AAA game (from this or last gen) with strong multiplayer portion that is not an MMO (or a fighting game for that matter) that has been released in the West?

Something that is not an absolute garbage on a technical level, but good try, I haven't thought of that.

Hey TC, Demon's Souls was not only AAA but GOTY. Complete thread fail.

When it comes to offline multiplayer, there's loads, with Japanese games probably being second to none in that area.

As far as online multiplayer goes, a few examples I can think of:

  • Metal Gear Online
  • Final Fantasy XI & XIV
  • Action RPG's, e.g. Phantasy Star Online, Monster Hunter, Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, etc.
  • Fighting games, e.g. Street Fighter, Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Dead or Alive, etc.
  • Arcade games, e.g. Initial D, Border Break, Gunslinger Stratos, etc.

You sure do like adding caveats to the question posed in your thread title. *No MMO, no Figthers, and they can't be technically weak. Anything else you want to omit to prove your very, very narrow point?

Why do you cows care so much about Japan when clearly Japan doesn't love PS4 :'( ? I'm just calling spade a spade.

#14 Posted by kinectthedots (1638 posts) -

LMAO, TC keeps editing his OP to exclude games that people mention that he didn't have any knowledge of.

Complete thread backfire, what an idiot.

I wouldn't exactly call Souls games "absolute garbage" on a technical level.

Still, it is a triple AAA multiplayer experience.

Shut up, noob. Actually I think Chromehounds (a game you don't even have any idea of) at one point had a hardcore online community and sold decently in Japan. It was also made by From Software by the way. Any other examples in that vein?

Do you have a problem that Japan tend not to make military shooters and horror games? They are just different. It's not that I 'care so much about them', it's that I just don't have anything against them like people like you do.

Damn what a flip flop in subject matter. Why do cows are about japan, is that what this thread is about now? lol WOW. When people lable you a stupid fanboy in love with all things xbox they are just calling a spade a spade as well.

Why are you such an ignorant racist shit head? You were proven wrong after the first reply, all other posts and OP *EDITS for you after were a display of your childish lemming sore looser mentality.

Game was complete Garbage according to many, but It's the Best Selling Resident Evil game to date.

Heck I even have it on Steam.

Exactly. I mean, what is left? FPS or TPS? What genre is the TC trying to get at here? He should have just made that apparent from the beginning.

Mario Kart 7 and 8.

But what is the point? There's an obvious cultural difference. Look at what happened to Resident Evil when this type of mentality got to publishers--let's make a unique experience into a cookie cutter one. Maybe a better question is when was the last online multiplayer game released actually a solid, unique experience. The last game I can think of that truly shined was Halo 3. COD blows, Killzone blows, and just about any cookie cutter fps has a crappy online portion.

Yeah. That's pretty much the only recourse after the monumental owning tc has received.

Monster Hunter 3

Mario Kart 8

fighters

There really aren't that many that I would say are great experiences. I would say the same about western online games, too.

Uhm...... I don't know... Lost Planet 2 was AAA right ?

It was... unfortunately.

It had competent network capabilities. And that was probably it's strength too. I actually enjoyed the multiplayer and co op, I played it a lot.

#35 Edited by Pikminmaniac (8842 posts) -

1) it was proven multiple times that the Mario Maker not having online sharing was completely false

2) why eliminate two entire genres to make a point? Japan is the leading manufacturer of quality fighting games and are well ahead of the west in their online offerings for said genre. Deal with it

#36 Posted by pyro1245 (726 posts) -

Most of the stuff Nintendo releases is technically AAA.

Also AAA is pretty much meaningless.

I like hard games, and I agree with his statement on Demon's Souls. Difficulty is the only thing the game does well, imo.

#38 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8512 posts) -

Don't get me wrong, I own Dark Souls and not as a freebie from Games with Gold, I bought it myself. The game is very fine, however it's a technical disaster which has very hard time hitting 25-30 fps consistently.

#39 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8512 posts) -

Oh, come on, I excluded two types of games I know they had something decent in, but suddenly you act as if there were no other genres. That must mean MMOs and fighting games comprise 95% of all video game genres.

LOL...noob...my feelings are hurt because some hardcore gamer nerd called me a noob! And you're right, I've never heard of Chromehounds. I have hobbies outside of gaming. Gaming is towards the bottom of my to-do. None of this makes your incredibly exclusionary criteria any less ridiculous.

He said "no fighting games", but Mario Kart & Wii Sports fit the bill.

#45 Edited by PyratRum (561 posts) -

Metal Gear Online

Armored Core V/Verdict Day

Lost Planet/Lost Planet 2

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

Gran Turismo 6

Mobile Ops: One Year War

Chromehounds (it had a hardcore following in the West as well)

Despite your "opinion," the Souls series very much counts.

And how the hell do you not mention Monster Hunter!?

Seems to me that you have a very skewed view of Japanese developers and their capabilities in the online space. You'll be hard pressed to find many Western online multiplayer games that surpass the depth and complexity of Armored Core V/Verdict Day.

His answer fulfilled your original criteria. Don't go moving the goal posts.

There is also Monster Hunter, Gran Turismo and the various Metal Gear Online ventures Kojima has taken.
