    If I just enjoy playing English games, are there any games which contain anything exclusive to Europe that USA games wouldn't have? Or are there Europe only games?

    And if so, is there a list of such things?

    (If I decide to play a Japan-only game, I'll do that separate and get a translation.)

    Thanks ! [​IMG]

    Maestro was a uk only ds game that wasn't bad. Most good stuff is global, though.

    The only real differences between the two are languages, with euro usually offering more (although sometimes they just do a north american release with up to 3 languages)

    There's a tiny, tiny amount of games that have only come out in Europe, etc..

    Some examples are Jam With the Band, Another Code R (that was on wii though) and Hotel Dusk 2 (out tomorrow, whoop)

    ALSO, for some European versions they strip out the voice acting, but that's quite rare. I think they did that for Rune Factory, but I have no idea why O____O

    Ah.. Well it's still friggin annoying.

    As if it wasn't bad enough that EU release dates are usually months/years after US ones >____<

    But not complaining. *Gets money for Hotel Dusk ready*

    Back to the original topic: I'd stick with the American versions xD

    I like USA games because if you need action replay codes, the USA have the most.

    Giana Sisters. It was a pretty good platformer.

    Well goodness, sounds like a lot of work to figure out which was the better of two versions, if the both come out in both regions.

    I know it's Nintendo, but does one region always have naughtier stuff in it/"uncut"?
