Final Fantasy 15 Won E3 According To Japanese Gamers, Followed By MGS5 & Kingdom Hearts 3

Surprised?

Final Fantasy 15
Popular Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently took a poll asking readers what games caught their attention most at this year’s E3. This was the year that saw several high profile announcements, along with a bunch of reveals for existing blockbusters.

Unsurprisingly however, it was the Japan-made games that got the most attention. The surveys indicated that Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15, which formerly went by the name Final Fantasy Versus XIII, ranked first. This was followed by Kojima Productions’ Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and the long awaited announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3.

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS came fourth, while the only non-Japanese title to make the top 5 was Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs in fifth place.

Much was made about Metal Gear Solid 5 in particular with readers praising its graphics and open world gameplay. One reader stated that, “I felt this game offers something really powerful that only the next gen can produce, not just another case of the visuals getting better.”

The top three, however, are yet to receive release dates.

    What did I tell ya? Japanese gaming-real gaming- is back! Regardless that this is only a poll from Japanese gamers, the fact that they were much more impressed by these Japanese games-one of which was Smash Bros., with Nintendo not having the Top 5 at E3 for too long, except for Skyward Sword- shows that Japanese game developers are doing everything right that Western developers are missing. I mean come on, Sony and Nintendo have been taking the heat for a long time and now their work will finally pay off; even though the Top 3 are multi-platform, I still make my point clear: Gaming is back in its prime! Back to basics! YEAH!

    “I felt this game offers something really powerful that only the next gen can produce, not just another case of the visuals getting better.”

    It seems this guy doesn’t realize that MGSV it’s for PS3 and X360 too. But I find funny that in 2ch most people hate FF15 but when Famitsu makes a poll the game still takes #1 spot just because it’s Japanese. Those Japanese from 2ch were complaining about that FF15 was too realistic and that the only people that could get into the game are Western players infatuated with Japan (aka weaboos).

    i was more impressed because it’s a FF with real time combat instead of turn based.

    But i was deeply shocked by the graphics man!
