Having three versions of the same game in the list certainly helps the DS's
average.

Have to hand it to the marketing department at Nintendo though. Instead of
sticking together small, medium and larger breeds in their own cartridge
they mixed and matched to try and get more sales. I figured I'd get the
Labrador version and probably end up with Retrievers and German Shepherds
but nope, they're each in the other versions. Then again I figured they
could have gotten all three versions onto just one card. Oh well. Still an
interesting idea for a game.

You can unlock the other breeds on the one cart with enough trainer
points or by wirelessly communicating with a DS with a different cart
and playing with the breeds you don't have (or at least that's what the
FAQs say, more or less).

Not by much, 8.3 with just one 9.1 rating. Anyway, it's all subjective.

You'd have to know what the other two games that would replace them would be
to calculate a new average for the top 10.

True dat. Especially since Fredericka didn't actually supply a source for
these numbers.

Gamespot's the one that compiles the "Today's most popular games". I
thought that was common knowledge amongst the enlightened.

I keep looking in my thesaurus for the part where it says enlightened is a
synonym for dork, but I can't find it.

All that measures is the number of page views for reviews/previews of a
specific game, not the number of people who have bought or are playing it.
Big deal.

Yeah I had read that last night. If so that's a good thing and I'll be a
happy trainer. :)
