By english do you mean NA or NA + EU?

Because some of those games I have never even heard of or were not released in NA.

Also, did Megaman Zero Collection really score higher than Mario Kart or other Mario titles? If so, its about damn time lol.

Neat list BTW

it's just a list of the best english games released, not in any specific region

afew of those games are eu specific and i'm not sure but there are probably some that are us specific

and yeah, Megaman winning was a huge upset, although there were afew surprise upsets

Pokemon not winner was alittle surprising, but i would never have thought Radiant Historia would of lost to Rune Factory 3
