Before writing this blog I took a gander at my game collection of roughly 2000+ games. Some of them from this gen. Most of them not. And I thought to myself. What genre of games did I buy more of this gen? The answer, surprised even me. The genre of game I am referring to, is niche, even by niche standards. The ones that come out in japan rarely make it here, and the ones that do, do it with just about the smallest amount of fanfare you've ever seen.
I bought a lot of Strategy Role Playing games this gen. When I say a lot, I am talking over 100 here. Between PS3,360,DS,PSP,IOS Strategy Role Playing Games are quickly becoming my bread, some more bread, and 1000 cows worth of butter.
Valkyria, Fire Emblem, Disgaea, Legend of Heroes, Devil Survivor, Final Fantasy Tactics, ect. I found myself buying at least 1 SRPG a month. Sometimes import. Within the last month, I purchased Summon Night 1,2,3,4 psp.......all of them, on the psp, anxiously awaiting Summon Night 5. If I had to put a ballpark numerical figure on the amount, it might be over 6 grand on SRPG's alone. I guess one could also ask how I am not poor. Well that's a question for another blog.
So fellow DTOID'ers, what genre did you buy the most of this Generation (IOS, DS,PSP,PS3,360,WII)? What genre do you expect to buy the most of coming up?
Let me know.
Thanks For Reading
