Operation Backlog Completion 2024

About two weeks ago, I added our first-ever site poll, “Which Ace Attorney games have you played?” It’s had a nice run, and now it’s time to shut it down and take a look at the results.


The results were close to what I expected, but not exact. I assumed most people either started the series from the beginning, or entered it just recently. Therefore, I expected the highest number of votes to go to Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney РDual Destinies (play the 3DS version if you can!), or Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright.

Dual Destinies did come out in the lead, but it was tied with the second game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All. Of the people who visited this site and took the poll, 17 of them have played those two games.

16 people played the first game and the third, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials & Tribulations. While the vote was anonymous and there’s no guarantee that the same 16 people voted for the first three games, it’s likely… so if you played Justice for All without played the game before or after it, let us know in the comments how that came to be!

The next most popular was Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, which received 15 votes, followed by¬†Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney with 14. Odd though it may seem that a spin-off is more popular than a main series entry, “Can I skip Apollo Justice” seems to be a common question.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, since it’s so new, only received 11 votes. In last place, to no one’s surprise, is Gyakuten Kenji 2, which Capcom has yet to localize. If you’re one of the 7 people who nevertheless said you played it, did you play through the game in Japanese or did you use the fan translation?

No one said they haven’t played any.

Of course, this would be a lot more interesting with a larger sample size… but it’s a start!

  1. Expecting Layton vs. Wright to get the most is a silly hypothesis!
