          1. Nope again. Pokemon will always be huge among japaneses. This list probably was compiled before the las pokemon announcement

          1. and ?…… A lot of people disagree and some people agree with you. So.. what´s the point ? I´d say its pointless to discuss what you think about pokemon

      1. Nope….. every new Pokemon game has many new things, have you ever played a WiFi match for example? you need to think, you need “to do the math” etc. New Pokemon RPG handheld games are not exactly for kids…… especially today because of online matches etc (IVs, EVs etc)……

    1. This is a weekly poll, the voting cutoff was a few weeks ago before the magazine went to print. It’s not the most wanted of 2013, this site simply doesn’t understand Japanese or how Famitsu works. Pokemon will be on there within a week or 2.

  1. I find it interesting that Dragon Quest VII is No. 2 on that spot. Then again, it IS a Dragon Quest game. And we all know how popular they are there.

    1. I have a 3DS and I will most definitely NOT being picking it up. I might consider though if the 3DS didn’t need a boat attached to it to have dual Circle Pads.

          1. We are going to play MH4 on our 3ds in 2000 graphics while you are playing your super 4K-HD graphic games on your 3ds.
            I don’t get it.

            1. I just don’t get it. MH4 overall graphics is gorgeous. U named it, Animation is superb, the textures and expanded map [ I say it has a huge map than it’s predecessor ]. Maybe you complained coz you watch it on youtube [ 1080p 32 inch, yeah right you will see the difference on your 3DS resolution].

      1. Yeah same here. If I didnt play the first 3, I probably wont play the 4th. I’m looking forward to animal crossing and luigi’s mansion.

          1. I always try to keep low expectations. What really disappoints me is the lack of “personality” for the ghost boss (according to the trailers and gameplay). I loved how each ghost in the first game had a personality, and behaved how they were when they were alive. They also wore clothes which was something nice. But, I played the first one, might as well play the second one, especially if King Boo returns as a boss.

          1. Who cares? What someone else does with their own money is their business, not yours. If you don’t think it’s for you, don’t buy it.

            1. he doesn’t have enough money to buy Wii U, well of course in his low budget, he buys a cheap, secondhand magnavox. Since he can’t buy it, all he do is whine, troll like a fat-ass-kid-little bitch. yup, fanboy trolls are obviously inconfident in real life. They can’t do it real life, so they do it in the cyber world where they’re anonymous. They want to get attention, to get conversations. Thats what they do. So, please never ever reply to this troll. Trolls are like shit, you know you dont like that. Instead of avoiding it. You put your hands on the shit, roll it and slightly put it back. Never ever give a fuck on trolls. You’re just encouraging them.

              1. Yes. You make perfect sense. Let’s sell something that I dont possess. You are making the most sense right now. I applaud you for making that statement. You are too intelligent for me. What would i do without you? I would have probably have ate it. You are the light in my world, and I cant do anything without you.

  3. I recognize a few for various systems from past games or hype, but perhaps almost half on that list I’ve never heard of. On the bright side I can’t wait for a ton of Nintendo games this year and my wallet will have tears.. of joy!

    I see that Japan is getting tired of these stupid hollywood like game movies.
    They suck and often has the plot of a C-movie.

    1. Well you win my dumbest thing said award for today.

      Western games pretty much never sell well in Japan, doesn’t matter what it is.
      And seriously, if you genuinely think The Last of Us has a C-Movie story…i don’t even know, you need to just go live in a cave and just stop being part of society.

  8. I’m a stupid fanboy with no life who thinks I’m superior to others with differing oppinions! I enjoy being a but hurt troll who gets the tinyest bit annoyed whenever I realize nintendo becomes the slightest more succesful than I thought they would. My opinion means nothing because I wouldn’t know a good game if it fucked me in the ass!

  10. This must of been done before Pokemon X and Y was announced because I know that Pokemon would of been up there somewhere in the top 5 defiantly, maybe even number 1.

  11. Whoot! Glad to see SMT4 is pretty high on that list.

    And the fact that FFV13, a game that we barely know much about and has no release date (and had no news at all in the past year) is higher up than FF13-3 really says something. Square Enix, please consider your fans someday and get your priorities straight.
