Amazon Japan’s best of 2006

By Spencer . January 2, 2007 . 6:50am

I’m not sure how Amazon Japan bases their top games of 2006. If it were by sales Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl were on the list. If it were quality Dirge of Cerberus wouldn’t be number two. Maybe it’s by page views or picks from the staff, but here’s what they think are the best games of 2006.

 

1.) Final Fantasy XII

2.) Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus

3.) Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

4.) Utawarerumono

5.) Monster Hunter 2

6.) Tales of Destiny

7.) Xenosaga III

8.) .hack://G.U. vol 2

9.) New Super Mario Bros

10.) English Training DS

 

Square-Enix dominated the list and has all three spots. Final Fantasy XII isn’t a surprise pick and before anyone asks “where’s Zelda” there are no Wii or PS3 games included on any lists. Below are system specific lists for the PS2, PSP, DS and Xbox 360. Bonus tip, if you’re in Japan you can get 15% off of any of these titles.
