the game is a big hit in Japan both critically and financially, Vanillaware deserve this breakthrough.
hazardman  +   212d ago
So why are we showing west chart. Its known the Japanese really dont like shooters. Also just because shooters dominate the list for the west doesnt mean thats all we play!! Its best selling not most played!!!

great list,every game is worth playing and give different experience of game,meanwhile in the east the top ranking is flooded of anime,roleplay games and final fantasy.
People have different opinions on games, the West isn't really flooded with shooters and sports games on the same level as Japan is flooded with anime games; you just need to take of your weaboo glasses.

Dragon's Crown is so fun and addicting specially 4 player co-op!

I have yet to try the Fighter and the Elf...the Amazon is Amazingly Amazing!

different strokes for different folks

digital download is so convenient

Hell Yeah !

Dragons is so good, I loved playing it on the Vita on the way to work in the train. I even picked up the Digital PS3 version a few months later - its a lot of fun.
Lionalliance  +   212d ago
No Lightning Returns in the list, good :)!
Hicken  +   212d ago
... as opposed to Dragon's Crown, which has been out most of the year on both PS3 and Vita, LR is fairly new, and probably hasn't sold nearly as many digital copies as physical.
Anthotis  +   212d ago
I'm sure many people play Dragon's Crown for the tits alone.

Probably, i just hope those individuals realise a deep and addicting game behind the tits.
azshorty2003  +   212d ago
Tits aren't addicting enough? ;)
cyguration  +   211d ago
Yes, because behind the tits is dat a$$. And that can be very deep and addicting, too.
Maxor  +   211d ago
There are things behind tits?? Why?
nope111  +   211d ago
Oh you guys :)

Stop embarrassing yourself.
How am i embarrassing myself? I made the choice to post that and i dont regret it. Whats embarrassing is weeaboo's that act like everything from japan is superior. Sorry if that hurts your feelings. I would carry this on but this is my post limit.

"stop being weeaboo's and caring so much about what the west does." Don't you mean "Stop caring so much about what the EAST does." Seriously, just about anyone who speaks English addresses Japan as an Eastern nation. Go back to fifth grade social studies.

Did you check the article? They've got Rain, Terraria, Soul Sacrifice, PSABR, and even Dust 514 on the top ten for some category. It's really varied, unlike western charts that only dominates by CoD, BF, Fifa, or Madden :P
SilentNegotiator  +   211d ago
There's like, a dozen lists there; of course they're varied if you look at ALL of them. So lets see ALL of the equivalent lists for some western territories.

Inception  +   211d ago
Ok, where's all the western list you implied? Show it to me than we're talk.
SilentNegotiator  +   211d ago
YOU made the assumption about how it will compare to the west. YOU show me the equivalent western lists.
Inception  +   211d ago
You bring nothing into this discussion. You're the one who implied that western list are varied. THAN YOU WHO MUST SHOW ME THE LIST. It turn's out you can't. End of discussion.
HammadTheBeast  +   212d ago
Wtf is a weaboo?
Snookies12  +   211d ago
You're using that stupid term wrong by the way. A Weeaboo is someone who constantly tries to act Japanese despite not being Japanese. Like speaking perfect English, but throwing in Japanese words in place of ones they could have just said in their native tongue.

Regardless, the term is really stupid and it's childish to use. People like what people like. Can you not let that be without insulting them?

Grinding to Level 255 is LOOOOOOOOOONG
Frodosmugins  +   212d ago
If you look past the jugs Dragons crown is one of the best games of the year easily!

well that and Tlou I really enjoyed the most this year!
rlacorne  +   211d ago
Why look past the jugs? The game was designed like that way, and it's all part of it's charm, with all it has of camp and soft sleaze.
Knushwood Butt  +   212d ago
It's interesting how Vita games dominate this list.

Vita isn't shifting many physical copies of games, and it seems that digital is the preferred format.

Makes sense, as it's so much easier to keep a collection on your memory card.


Whoah, great to see Rain doing so well in the download only chart.

Oh, and Kaze no Tabibito is Journey; doing nicely at #3

The thing is. While not a lot of people have Vita's. Those who do buy a lot of games for them. As all it's games (Except CoD but it sucked anyways) are $40 new which makes it easier to buy more.
rlacorne  +   211d ago
Hey, Final Fantasy IX did better than VII!

I understand that. I always thought that of the three flagship final fantasy on ps, IX was the best.
DCfan  +   211d ago
Glad its selling so well, best game this year IMO, im having so much fun playing it now, but too bad i gotta stop and start studying for mid terms.
Mr Marvel  +   210d ago
TLoU, Diablo III & Dragon's Crown are my top 3 favourite games released in 2013.

My Dragon's Crown game save clock reads around 220 hours now too (most of those hours being on Vita).
