Open Letter: Let's Save Japanese Game Development

Posted on Monday, June 18 @ 15:34:25 Eastern by

Let the fans sell your stuff.


I recently bought Persona 3 Portable on my PlayStation Vita. I haven't played a Japanese Role-Playing Game in... 20 years. I'm only 24 years old. You do the math.

Me and JRPGs haven't gotten along in quite some time. More often than not the genre proves to be obtuse, over-expository nonsense. It was certainly NOT the genre or gameplay that had me pouring cash directly into that weird expansion slot on the Vita.

It was the readers and community members at GameRevolution that convinced me it was worth a try, that there was something to care about in the game. Remember how I said people can tell when you're passionate about something? Atlus is clearly passionate about the Persona series, but they don't stop there. They're obviously passionate about the characters they've created, the world they've developed, and the way the player interacts with everything in the game. IT SHOWS, and it showed in the words that convinced me to play the game.

Next page: reality.
