Famitsu: The Most Popular Action-Adventure Games In Japan

Finished Yakuza 0, it's good, the real estate and hostess club games were interesting, you could spend a lot of time on those.

Famitsu Poll: The Most Popular Action-Adventure Games In Japan

Wonder what action-adventure games are most popular in Japan? Let’s find out! There might be some surprises... Then again, there might not.

Famitsu already did an action game poll, but this week it published an action-adventure game one. Next week, it will be running its adventure game survey, so now let’s take a look at the genre that combines the two. (Keep in mind that Famitsu is letting those who respond to the poll decide what they think is an action-adventure game.)

As with the previous polls (here, here and, uh, here), each person was allowed to vote for up to three titles (though people could only vote for one or two if they wanted). Famitsu then calculated these votes as “points.” While the game titles have been localized for clarity, the hardware platforms are as listed by the magazine.

According to Famitsu, 588 people participated. Out of that, 68 percent were men and 27 percent were women (5 percent didn’t disclose if they were men or women). Ten percent were in their teens, 33 percent were in their 20s, 39 percent were in their 30s, 12 percent were in their 40s, 1 percent were in their 50s and 5 percent were “other.”

Here are the top twenty action adventure games as picked by Famitsu’s readers.
20. Shadow of the Colossus (PS2/PS3) - 16 points

19. The Last of Us (PS3/PS4) - 20 points

18. Mega Man Legends (N64/PS1/PSP/PC) - 22 points
