Here are some notes on how this list works.

* Stats, ordering and research: thanks to game publishers, retail analysis sources and NPD data.
* Games are ranked purely by units sold. This tends to favor games released earlier, rather than later, and games which have spent a long time at a lower price point have also done well, but we wanted to reward longevity and popularity across all audiences, not just hardcore – a particularly important criterion for the large child-oriented sector of the handheld market.
* For the Pokemon and Super Mario Advance series, only the top selling SKU is represented on the list. This was to prevent these two franchises from choking the upper echelons of the list – apparently, people buy a lot of them.
* This list is for the U.S market only.
* This list only features games released since the introduction of Game Boy Advance, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS

Full Discription

Personally, I think Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past should have been higher. And there were too many Yu-Gi-oh and Disney games on there. What do you think?
Did you even read the article ? :)
It is fully based on sales, so these are facts, not reviews

yeah, a lot of parents probably bought their kids the movie games
yeah that's probably it, add to that that lots of kids who have a gameboy just want a game " 'cuz .... is in it " :)
you'd think pokemon emerald would be the number one
no, cause theres not much difference in it from sapphire and ruby.
Its no surprise that nintendogs made the top list, it is so cute and fun
Its no surprise that pokemon made the top, it is the 'craze' of nowadys, and ruby sounds better than sapphire.

what do you mean?
Nintendogs: Chihuahua & Friends is one version alone. The others are called different names, too lazy to write them down.
