Why cant the Japanese do good computer FX anymore? :(

Only sporadically, they do some nice stuff, the rest is just medicore.

And they started so nice:

Excuse me my ignorance (if any) but I have never ever seen sth really breathtaking on any platform. They were usually focused on game developpement, was it on arcade systems or on the consoles...

Well, in 2D, everything was in nice and fancy (anime) style. Now, that anime is still a 2D medium, they often fail to create the same amount of detail. Even most RPG's look like old PS2 Games now.

Looks like deadlines kills the detail.

Deadly Premonition for example. Great game, horrible gfx.

It is a culture of games and once again games with rather closed ppl.

I would like to read some info from a japanese dude who knows the subject. Would be interesting.

Their last Amiga broke in 2003. Now they just don't know what to do.

I would like to hear some info too. In many anime for example, i also see the effects that are clearly visible. They are just used to avoid drawing something. But back then in the 70's they used just ruler and pencil to animate robots! :P

Too many old people with stagnant imaginations and not enough young people with fresh ideas.
I think it hasnt got much to do with the "aging" society in general.

I've read about someone who worked in japan, and he wrote about a box, where every employee in a larger games producer has to submit a game idea once a while...

Japan needs Amiga donations?

For real. Them J-Peopz really rule the world at really PAINTING animes and stuff. This what they can do best.

Anyway.. They got some really good looking commercial FX, doing the Final Fantasy softs and maybe trying GT5... but far from that they really suck at doing really top notch graphics.

Capcom does good looking games (Resident Evil 5, Lost Planet...)

modern anime is full of computer cg. except you don't see it as clearly as the old cg.
GT5 is not that good graphically. They have really nice high poly models... well. They're shadows suck to the point of making everything else look bad.

Anyone watched Appleseed Ex Machina?
The trailer quality sucks badly, in 1080p for me it's as stunning as Avatar.
The story also sucks ;)
hmm, interesting! check this out: http://www.worldlingo.com/ma/enwiki/en/Susumu_Hirasawa ...Amiga :)
