    As Japan makes way to transition into the new Reiwa period, Famitsu recently held a poll for its readers to vote for their favorite games that released in the Heisei period (Jan 8, 1989 – May 1, 2019), and this week’s issue of the magazine has revealed the full top-20 list. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]

    While we don’t have the number of votes for the full list, it is mentioned that Chrono Trigger’s #1 place happened thanks to the overwhelming support from fans in their 30s. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild placed #2 in overall votes, but was actually the top-voted title for readers in their 40s. Meanwhile, NieR: Automata mostly got its votes from readers in their teens and 20s, and was actually #1 most voted title for those age groups.

     

    It’s also worth noting that Vainglory by Super Evil Megacorp snuck its way onto the list as the only Western-developed game, which is a bit of a head-scratcher looking at its company but let’s not forget that it’s mostly a list made to have fun with the Famitsu readers, so it shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
