Top 20 'popular titles' on the Virtual Console - April 2008 (USA)
Posted by Darren Calvert
Following last month’s look at the top 20 popular VC titles for the USA it is interesting to see how things have changed a month later. There are no surprises really, Americans can’t get enough of the old classics like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, they aren’t going anywhere!
Games from non-Nintendo consoles are nowhere to be seen. Surely some Americans are downloading Genesis or TurboGrafx games! Better that than the woeful Cruis’n USA which sneaked its way into seventh place this month. Oh well at least River City Ransom made an appearance at twelfth in the list.
It is a shame to see that Wonder Boy or Fantasy Zone from the Master System didn't even make the top 20 as both of those were released in recent weeks.
C’mon guys, take a chance on something new this month on the VC!
