Wow! I'm surprised Famitsu picked Elden Ring over Splatoon 3. Only because it's Japan. But if you look at the top 20, almost half are Western developed games. It's one thing for Famitsu to choose these, the buying public wouldn't have the same opinion. Just look at the Famitsu Most Wanted list. They're slowly, and I mean very slowly, changing and coming to appreciate Western developed games.
