That's a good way to make me save money. I'll never buy anything digital. A shame that PC gaming has come to this, but I don't think I'll be buying that many games anymore.

Okay I've just gotten out of the starting dungeon and so far it has been very impressive. Even the voice acting is good, and the story seems interesting enough (though I haven't even really gotten started yet.) Boy oh boy, if it weren't so late I'd love to play more. Cursed be thee, school computer, for thy canst not run Oblivion. :P
Well damn. This pretty much made my day. RPG + German + subtitled = :shock:
Gonna try it out now.
Hmm, by Western you mean USA & Canada then? They used to make AMAZING games back in the 80's, 90's and early 00's. Some (if not most) of my all time favorites were made there. Recently though (2004ish->) they haven't made that many good games, mostly because the focus in on the consoles (read: Xbox) there.
What can I say about Japanese devs... Well they should release more games on the PC that's for sure. I mean yeah you get the occasional Capcom game, the occasional Square JRPG every 10 years and random fighting games. But they should release more games on the PC. Of course, there's bishoujo games which I admit I have been playing a lot recently. :P
European devs are what American devs used to be in the 90's. Creative and ambitious. That's why today they make the best games by far. Especially in the Eastern Europe and Germany. If you count Russia as an European dev then they are even more in the lead.
So, in order from the best to worst; European > Japanese > American. If you would've asked me 5+ years ago I probably would've said American > Japanese > European. But such is life - things change.
I don't care if I see more or not since I'm not using a widescreen monitor, but if the FOV is too small (see: The Suffering, MoH: Pacific Assault) I get a terrible headache and can't play the game for more than a couple of minutes. The only way for me to play a game with a small (unchangeable) FOV is to plug in a gamepad and play from across the room.
