During the broadcast they showed that the people interviewed went from all ranges, from elementary school students, to people in their 50s and beyond. On certain games that would make a point on how some games did better within certain age groups than others. And on a few like fire emblem, made a point on the larger female demographic. They asked a large group of people for sure and they got a pretty comprehensive listing of what’s been super popular with Japanese gamers over the years on the list. Honestly not too surprised at all at any of the choicesWhat were the age demographics of we’re talking “all time”?
I actually was surprised it got to number 3. Expected it in top ten but thought some games would pass it due recency bias. The panelist on the show each gave their guess on what number one would be and only one of them picked ffvii. Most picked animal crossing. One person did pick Zelda BOTW. One crazy thing, when they were talking about botw, they had the singer of the mazinger x theme song show up and he talked about playing botw for over 3000 hours!Actually surprised, was sure FFVII
Honestly what a trash list. This is akin to a western top 100 list being full of shooters, sports games and GTA.
Suikoden II getting some respect. Japan knows their games.
Poll 50,000 Americans and that game doesn’t even make the top 500. Most wouldn’t have even heard of it.
As was OoT at the time it released. Having played both at launch, BOTW is an extremely good game - but imho, it just doesn't compare to the sense of adventure that OoT brought to 10-year-old me back in the day. BOTW could have been a lot better with a stronger focus on story and narrative. It's an aspect in which OoT easily outshines BOTW, even after 23 years.Ocarina of Time has been dethroned, BOTW is just in a league of its own
They talked about that game a lot actually since it was in the top ten and about why it was such a hit with Japanese gamers.. The story really was a hit with Japanese gamers and was quite memorable for them. They made a big deal talking about Tidus and Yuna’s kiss scene. They talked also about how the game was a revolution with the amount of speech in the game when ff games before it had none. The game has always been popular here with the public at large and it’s easy to see why. Hardcore gamers here like it too but other RPGs that we would see as being better wouldn’t jump above it in a public vote like this. While VI is always my favorite ff game and favorite game period, I’m ok with x as high as it is. It’s my second favorite game in the series.I don't understand how FFX gets that much love over all the great JRPGs.
Sorry I’m just not seeing any subtle slickness at all. There was a poll where over 50,000 people in Japan voted they favorite games of all time and the results were announced on tv. The link says the same thing. So what exactly is subtly different?What it says is not what the link says.
Some use subtle slickness.
Hmm maybe I am missing something...Sorry I’m just not seeing any subtle slickness at all. There was a poll where over 50,000 people in Japan voted they favorite games of all time and the results were announced on tv. The link says the same thing. So what exactly is subtly different?
I can see you point in the “of all time” but that is the meaning for the show (at least for console games) and is what’s being used in almost all the other English reports on the show. But yeah I understand what you mean now in regards to the particular article that was posted fromHmm maybe I am missing something...
I can easily be corrected if you can show me the "of all time" part.
