Game journalism is a fucking joke.
So a couple days ago Gematsu did this story
where they reported on the "most wanted" games from a particular Famitsu issue. This is something Famitsu compiles from reader submissions every week, though there is naturally a big selection bias there (since only the most hardcore fans who are also Famitsu fans are going to bother to write in about it) and it shouldn't really be taken seriously. And the Gematsu story makes it pretty clear that they reported on it on a whim.
Since then I've seen this story picked by all manner of other news sites but filtered down the blogosphere like a game of telephone, losing all context and turning into headlines like "Japan's 30 Most Anticipated Games". But if you actually follow the source links they all come back to (eventually...) that Gematsu story about a stupid Famitsu poll that nobody really takes seriously. But since Gematsu isn't reporting on the Famitsu results every week (even though Famitsu is doing them weekly) it makes this weeks results seem a whole like weightier than they should.
But hey, who needs context?
