SPOnG's Top 20 Reader Voted Games: July 28th
So, what a difference a weekend makes. Despite nefarious attempts to rig the SPOnG straw poll of reader visits to game-specific pages, the SPOnG Reader Top 20 appears to have emerged unscathed.

It's also looking quite conservative with big guns such as Ninja Gaiden 2, SoulCalibur IV, Grand Theft Auto IV and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots all featuring highly.

It would also appear that anybody interested in casual games (is echochrome casual?) was probably out and about playing the real world over this searing weekend. Sure, some were interested in The Sims 2: Pets but for the most part it seems that the hardcore gamer eschewed the big, bright, hot yellow thing in the sky and got their heads down.

In terms of hardware, the PS3 is still garnering most interest (where are you Xbox 360 people?) followed by the PC. Nintendo got one single vote and that was for Family Trainer on the Wii.

In case you missed the rules of the vote - all you have to do is use SPOnG's search engine to find a game that interests you and visit the page. That's it.
