I totally put 3.3 million for worldwide FF12, it was 5.7 million. I have no clue where that other number came from.

Well, to be honest, everything is opinion based. So I guess my point is it being more broadly opinionated if anything. Because while sales don't tell the whole story, huge sales say something. While some don't like FF12, others love it to death. I've seen so many videos/blogs of people/groups doing unlevel challenges and perfect games and getting 99 of everything. And that was my point, it was huge for many people (a good portion of 5.7 million people).

We're about 6 years into the PS3 right now. Can you honestly say there are even 100 games that could make it to a list like this. Are there 100 great PS3 games? And how many are as good as the 100 great PS2 games...
That was essentially my thoughts when I was commenting on it being a nice walk down memory lane. There were SOO many games and most all were classics or great in their own mind. I just don't see that anywhere in my library of Xbox360 or PS3.
Oh well, it's great we can just go out and buy a PS2 slim and snag up tons of PS1-2 titles and play them all over again. (if they don't cost 200 bucks)
