Mario Kart and Wii Fit head the lists which are dominated by Nintendo platforms

Brain Training and the DS edition of Mario Kart took fourth and fifth positions, followed by Mario & Sonic at the Olympics and Guitar Hero: On Tour in sixth and seventh.

Super Smash Bros Brawl for the Wii was eight, with More Brain Training and Summer Athletics finishing the top ten list.

In Spain the list was barely less Nintendo-dominated, with Wii Fit in first place and Beijing 2008: The Olympic Games for the PlayStation 3 in second.

Super Smash Bros Brawl and Guitar Hero: On Tour were sixth and seventh while Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What to Eat? was eighth.
