Virtual Console Top 20 - March 2008 (EU)
Posted by Darren Calvert
Below is a list of the top 20 most popular Virtual Console games for Europe as currently listed in the Wii Shop. As there is no exact time period specified for this list we can probably assume that these are the most popular games over the last month, not of all time.
Much like the USA top 20 for March the Euro list is also dominated by first party Nintendo games. Unlike the American list however Sega manages to make the grade with Sonic 1 and 3. Bizarrely Sonic 2 which many consider to be the best in the series is nowhere to be seen!
It is also a shame to only see only Bomberman ’93 representing the TurboGrafx in the top 20. This is probably a clear pointer to the reason why Sega and Hudson are not bombarding the Virtual Console with games as they did originally.
Despite the Wii’s limited internal memory it hasn’t stopped Euro gamers from lapping up lots of N64 games. 7 out of 20 of the most popular games were from the N64 – but no Sin and Punishment or F-Zero X! Don’t you listen to a word we say?
Europe has gone absolutely stark raving bonkers this month as the terrible NES conversion of Operation Wolf sneaked in to the 20th position on the list. OK hands up, which of you bought this turd?!
