I prefer the Blue Blur but I liked Mario 64 a lot.

Looks like there are more exceptions than people think. or better, more than people use as an excuse :D

They like our games as much as we like their Naruto games.

100,000+ for Uncharted 3 and BF3 are huge sales for Japan, most games on home consoles only sell 20,000-80,000.
