It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available on the Wii Shop Channel. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop Channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that easy!
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.
Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.
Here is the list for the 20th of May:
1 - World of Goo
2 - My Aquarium

4 (4) - My Pokémon Ranch

* (N) - Denotes a brand new entry on the Top 20
* - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week
Well we're back to a "Fabulous Five" again since the top five games remain intact from last week's chart. The World of Goo reign of terror continues with no signs of stopping at this point.
The big climber this week was Capcom's Mega Man 9 title, which jumped up five more spots to #14. This game is shooting back up the charts and it will be interesting to see how high it can climb on its second run through the chart. BIT.TRIP BEAT even managed to jump up one more spot to #12. The big dropper this week was a 3-way tie between Midnight Bowling, Wild West Guns, and Onslaught, which all fell a paltry two spots.
There were no new entries on the chart this week, but the big jump from Mega Man 9 at least provided one highlight to this week's Top 20. Maybe we'll see Crystal Defenders R2 make an appearance next week.
