Next Gen's Top 20 TGS Picks

Next Generation posted this handy little article on their 20 favorite games from the recent Tokyo Game Show. Predictably, Nintendo Wii and DS games dominate the list, but there are a sizable number of Playstation 3 games that impressed. As developers become more familiar with that console, the good games will start rolling in. Whether any of us will actually play them - gee, I don't think my bank will give me that second mortgage - is another story entirely.

And with XBox 360 all but invisible in Japan, that leaves Nintendo almost unopposed, and dominant for the first time in over a decade. I'm still amazed by their comeback.

20. Shooting Watch (Hudson, keychain game)

19. R-Type Tactics (Irem, PSP)

18. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (Capcom, Wii)

16. Time Crisis 4 (Namco, PS3)

15. Final Fantasy 4 (Square-Enix, DS)

14. Dragon Quest 4 (Square-Enix, DS)

13. Final Fantasy Tactics A-2 (Square-Enix, DS)

12. Senjo no Valkyrie (Sega, PS3)

11. Time Hollow (Konami, DS)

10. Echochrome (SCEJ, PS3/PSP)

9. Nights: Journey of Dreams (Sega, Wii)

8. Ryu ga Kotoku Kenzan (Sega, PS3)
