No Pokemon D/P?

                       Thanks Blacksaber for the sig                  Tag:"Nintendo es toda la diversión de esta generación"

Exclusives outside of nintendos are scarce...

Nice list. This has me wondering, what is the best selling game in any one year ever? A Pokemon game? It seems like the selling rate of MK Wii can't really be beat by many other games in history. Wish all the games had full worldwide info so I could compare their graphs.

What about Wii Sports and the Force Unleashed?

Pixel Art can be fun.

Come on put Pokemon D/P on it's 20th place and out side MGS4 it's maybe the best game of this year but please it doesn't sell like everyone expected.

Get it Out MGS4 !

Why should we wonder about MK? I voted for it in that poll earlier, and only by looking at this weeks numbers it should be obvious that it is the best selling game this year.

Currently Playing: Skies of Arcadia Legends (GC), Dragon Quest IV (DS)

Last Game beaten: The Rub Rabbits(DS)

MGS4 sold 3.72 M
