@turambar: Well that's surprising since it seems to be the most popular western game in Japan after COD. And Japanese games have been around more than a decade lol. But please go on because alot of those games you mentioned are last gen, so I would genuinely like to know what I have been missing out on this gen.
My comment is on the idea of "good Japanese games this generation." Also, feel free to define what is last gen, what is this gen, and what games gets disqualified as a result from the above list.
For example Persona, I'm guessing your talking about 3 and 4 that came out on the PS2 = Last Gen
So only what system it was released for matters. In that case, P4 easily fits current gen due to being on the Vita and P3 due to being on the PSP.
Then does FFX count as a next gen title because it's on the PSP Vita now? I get what you are saying with P4 though they did add alot of new content.
They added far more content for P3 on the PSP than P4 on the Vita. Also no, one actually has significantly more content, the other is apparently a port and not much more. A better comparison would be the FF3 and FF4 remakes for the DS, and yes, I would consider them current gen games.
I would consider DS and PSP last gen.
