The Tokyo Game Show 2014 Visitor Survey Report released today by the Japanese Computer Entertainment Software Association included some very interesting data on the favorite genres between attendees.
Below you can see the result to the survey that asked respondents to name their favorite genres. It’s quite interesting, as the pool featured obviously includes a high percentage of core gamers.
On the left there are the results of the Tokyo Game SHow survey, compared on the right with results related to the general consumer market in 2013.
As you can see, RPG is still by far the favorite genre, folllowed by action and adventure.
A bit more surprising is the result of FPS games, which are gradually gaining popularity in Japan, while the strong results of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn definitely helped popularize the MMORPG genre in the country.
