idk i think the main reason whey japanese studios lag behind is online
they need to figure out how to make it work well with their genres and ips
I'm not so sure. Atlus is finding a lot of success without online play. If anything, many western games are becoming stale because of their online play. We need more developers to be willing to fail rather than doing something safe. I see Vanillaware, From Software, Grasshopper Studios, Team ICO, Atlus, and Platinum Games doing very interesting things, and their games are starting to find some success in the west.
