It would seem New is in this year. Well, if we’re talking about New Super Mario Bros. anyway. The DS title (which still makes bank in Japan) took top honors in the Amazon Editor’s Top 10 games of he year, beating out Twilight Princess (Wii), which got the second slot.
Other Nintendo titles of note: Brain Age at 6 and Metroid Prime: Hunters at 8. I never did pick up Hunters due to concerns over its control scheme. Did I make a mistake?
