I'm not embarrassed, i'm pleased with the list. From that list you can't pigeon hole Brits like you would Japs and Americans (FPS & JRPGs). Huge variety in that list. Great, good & crap games.

Another thing i noticed is the kids titles. Kids are majorly into games over here.
As they age, their tastes will develop and they'll be more choosey with the titles they buy. At the moment their parents buy their games for them and pick safe movie tie ins.

Yeah I think Dead Rising should get No.2 and Just Cause will hit No.1 as it's mutilplatform hopefully enchanted arms will get in the Top 15 if Over G Fighters did it shouldn't have to much problem.

I've been enjoying it so far it's a bastard to control it sorta reminds more of those old ACES games on the commodore64.
