A list of the top fifty best-selling games in the UK last year has surfaced, and the DS snagged six of the spots, though you may be somewhat surprised by what made it. Of course, considering that there are a lot more regular folks
than there are "hardcore gamers" (and even the hardest of the hard like a little break now and again), you may not be that
surprised after all.
The original brain game, Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training
, took the number two spot as the second best-selling title overall, and the sequel, More Brain Training
, slid in at number five. Considering that Big Brain Academy
turned up at number 37 (along with its console cousin at number 24), there must be a lot of healthy and exercised brains trundling around Dear Old Blighty these days. The other games that turned up were New Super Mario Bros.
, at number 13, Cooking Mama
just above it in twelfth place, and way down near the bottom, Pokémon Diamond
turned up at number 44. Perhaps our friends in the UK have already caught them all.
