Animal Crossing is #1. I love AC and I knew it was popular in Japan but I didn't know it was the #1 selling game at the moment. Cool. Hmm, Tales of the Abyss is #23 and Tales of Legendia is #30. They're somewhat anime related since they have anime cut scenes in them. Kingdom Hearts 2 is #9 also.

Ha! Good to see DBZ out-ranking Naruto this year...!!

Nothing against, Naruto, it's just that I'm DBZ-biased and love the games.

Glad the Saint Seiya game made it into the list. Not the best game but the best series Smile

This list proves that Pokemon defenantly is NOT dead. I'm glad DBZ is so high on the list. I am however surprised that Super Smash Brothers Melee wasn't on the list.

Shouldn't The Pokémon Company fall under the Nintendo umbrella since they're just a branch of it?

And I'm pissed that Super Robot Wars J outsold Original Generation 2 or-to be honest-anything at all. At least α 3 came out on top of the Franchise...

It's 5 years old at the end of this year, so odds are that anybody who wants it already has it. Like me!

And Pokémon was never dead: people are just idiots.

Pokémon may not be dead, but it's dead to me...

I'm happy to see nintendo's DS beating out the PSP.

Lastly, there seem to be a LOT of Naruto games. And I'm suprised to see that DBZ is still selling over there as well. It's been over 10 years since dbz finished up right? Of course, Gundam is still strong as ever, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised.
