Flamebait Friday Debate: East vs West – Which makes the best games?

1 min read


Gaming as we know it was originally born and ruled in the east. Japan were (and still are) rocking the industry like crazy, from the early days where Mario became such a hit, Final Fantasy took on a life of its own, Zelda rocked everyone’s world and the East was just dominating.

Times have changed though, and the West is putting up a massive fight. The question is, even though we know where it began… who is better NOW?

Final Fantasy, Mario, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Demon Souls, Zelda, Shadow of the Colossus, Pokemon, Dragon Quest, Ninja Gaiden and more


Mass Effect, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Forza, God of War, Killzone, Halo, Mortal Kombat, Batman, Heavy Rain, Alan Wake… and more.

Who’s making the better games these days?
