this thing is fake! Almost 700 X1 users in japan ?! It's impossible to have this many X1 users in Japan!! /S



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

The PS2 list probably hotly contested, too much to choose from. I like how FF3, 5, 7 & 10 dominated their respective FF gens, but 13? Seriously Japan? Crying tears of blood here...

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

Some great choices there, as someone said ask the western audience and you will get fifa, cod, gta, madden, battlefield, and things like that. Looks like the japanese really don't like star fox, f-zero or metroid in the Nintendo consoles, also did't see some Silent Hill for the PS consoles.



Kinda lame lists, well, no LoD was already a big sign for it xP

Anyway, Uncharted sure is more appreciated there than I thought.

Oh and no Master System list, smh.

Quite a few as you'd expect really. Some games that I've never even heard of too, maybe they were Japan only games or something?

A few surprises other than that though. No Persona 4 on the PS2 list? I know it tops the Vita list, but #3 made both the PS2 and PSP lists, so how come #4 couldn't do the same?

Glad to see Super Mario 64 above Zelda on N64. I just don't get the Zelda love, I played it when it was still new but it just didn't seem that great (it's probably aged poorly as well). While Mario 64 was great and when I replayed it again last year it was still great.

Also glad to see that the low point of the Final Fantasy series (12) never made the list. Kinda disappointed the low point of the Resident Evil series (4) did, but at least it was still lower on the list than the original game's remake, so that's something.

Kinda wondering what happened to Pokemon though. Gens 1/3 both did really well. 2 was probably held back some by being on the same console as #1 and people voting for that instead, but it still did well. Then gen 4 sees quite a decline. And then gen 5/6 don't even show up. The gen 3 remakes at least appeared but X/Y didn't.

The thing about the DS and the 3DS is that I feel like they had an enormous amount of memorable games, and limiting to only the top 10 games feel like a crime. I was expecting Pokemon mystery dungeon to be on this list but I guess Japanese players like dragon quest a lot more :/

Are you kidding me? Wind Waker HD? Ugh. It's a great game, don't get me wrong. But the 8th most memorable game of the Wii U is... a remake. We/they should eliminate remakes from this type of lists.

I don't get all these outrages at the lists.  It's a snapshot of dedicated Japanese gaming users.  They like what they like, and if a remake is memorable that's a testiment to the game itself (same with Persona 4 I'd say).

This. People here fail to realize that this is about as representative of overall Japanese gamers sentiment as our own annual top greatest games event is, ie. not much at all.



Wait they didn't vote for Super Mario 3D Land and A Link Between Worlds?? But Animal Crossing #1 -.-



I'm so glad to see Xenoblade #1 in the Wii list

I actually find the lists very good. There are a few unexpected games, yet very deserving. I just don't stand 1 game being memorable for 2 different generations...



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
