It used to be mostly Japanese, but now I'd say it's a good split between everything.

Is that Canada? That should count as American

Japan for me. Dominating the handheld market, great games on consoles, sadly JRPGs on consoles are lacking.

Americans= FPS games/similar influences these days, and many have lost the charm and creativity they used to have

He should just ask what region makes the most games you play in the title so comments like these don't appear throughout the thread.

No preference.

There are a lot of interesting games being released from a lot of developers. I mean, I enjoy European releases like Magicka, Seirous Sam, Mount&Blade, but i also like Western games such as Killing Floor, Half-Life, Mass Effect, Portal, and even Halo 3. Additionally, Japan has some great games such as Devil May Cry 4, Tales of Vesperia, The Last Remnant, Touhou (yes, i had to mention that), and a lot of 18+ games.

Western games can be European; as generally understood it would cover basically everything produced in North America and Western Europe.

But we could also separate out Europe as a region from North America as a region (let's not forget Canada, from which games like Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect are produced).

Games released from Eastern Europe especially tend to have smaller budgets, which in this case at least means less polish and more design quirks ( from what I've seen of them ), so I'd go with American video game developers.

European by a long stretch. Stalker, Cryostasis, Witcher, Arma, Crysis, Amnesia, Metro, Men of War, Painkiller, Fuel, Just Cause, Battlefield... Yeah, nothing comes close for me this gen, although especially the US has some fantastic games. Japan dropped the ball a bit I think.

Well,while I don´t completely disagree with that,it´s interesting to see that ,from the top 10 most expensive games ever,only one was made in the US while 4 were made in Europe(wich includes the n1 spot,the most expensive game ever).

Eastern Europe and the USA. Japan has done nothing but disappoint me this gen. But really, it's all about whether or not the game is good.

1: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Japan)

2: Punch-Out!! (Canada)

3: New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Japan)

4: Donkey Kong Country Returns (USA)

5: inFAMOUS (USA)

6: Devil May Vry 4 (Japan)

it's pretty mixedfor me, but there is a slight edgetowards Japan

I like games from all countries but most of my all time favourite developers come from Europe (especially Bullfrog and Bluebyte).

Some good games, but without Battlefield EU would easily be in last for me.

AC is Canadian. Ubisoft may be French, but Ubisoft Montreal obviously isn't.
