    Surprising, I would have expected RE4 to be in the top 10.

    Look! Breath of Fire more popular than Phoenix Wright! Yet we get a gazillion new Phoenix games a year, and no more Breath of Fire. OBJECTION!

    I had to walk around stripped to the waist this weekend due to a lack of clothes. The neighbours were most displeased. And my family.
