      did they move tokyo out of japan or something

      Because it's just lazy design. It's like having a game set in your backyard

        A lot of Japanese games are also developed in Kyoto. You've already recieved several definitive answers so you're nowhere near as clever as you think.

        If the greater Tokyo area was its own country then it would have the 36th highest population with the 9th largest economy by GDP.
        The better question is why is your own country so irrelevant that the people who make games in it, if there even are any, are so embarrassed that they don't make games about it.

          United States is so young that there's not much you can do with it. The games that take place in or around the United States tend to fall under the following categories:
          >Modern urban setting
          >Wild west
          >Revolutionary War
          >Civil War
          >Future sci-fi
          >Steampunk

          Of course, the landmass far predates the United States, but no one cares enough about Native Americans to make a game about them.

            Age is irrelevant to the thread topic. The problem is westerners have no imagination and can't conceive someone in the present day real world having interesting and fantastical adventures.

              the real world isn't interesting or fantastical.

    There's plenty of game set in modern Japan like Yakuza,Persona and TWEWY
    If you meant games set in ANCIENT Japan you have Onimusha,Sengoku Basara, the billion of games that features oda nobunaga in other forms like Kessen, that Pokémon Conquest game and all of KOEI simulation war games, Way of The Samurai and Muramasa on the Wii
    Conclusion: OP is a fat retard

    So the Raidou Kuzunoha games don't count because they take place in central Tokyo?

    >but not Tokyo
    Those games don't sell, not even in Japan.

    The only ones I can recall are Pokemon set in not-Japanese-city/region, horror-based (usually muh mountain oni) or farming/slice of life.

    >Yakuza series (Kamurochou is only one of the venues where the games take place, 0, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, LJ, kenzan and ishin are partly or almost completely not in Tokyo)
    >Persona series (only 5 was in Tokyo)
    >Sekiro
    >Nioh
    I'm sure there are more, but regarding your question
    >japs like fantasy settings
    >japs don't tend to make "realistic" games
    >fictional places save on research time or asking for permissions
