The 10 most popular games on videogame guide website GameFAQs Wednesday include the best-selling Modern Warfare 2, 2009's in-depth role playing game Dragon Age: Origins, some early January releases and two games that are currently exclusive to Japan.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tops the chart on the site with the Xbox 360 version as has been occurring at retail near constantly since its November 10 release in 2009, and the PlayStation 3 equivalent makes an appearance a few spaces down the chart. Currently available walkthroughs encompass overall gameplay, specific in-game achievements, and the competitive and co-operative multiplayer modes.

Dragon Age: Origins is an extremely deep and engrossing role-playing game with many overlapping stories and unforseen consequences as players choose which quests to take up as they trace the history of select dwarves, elves, and humans in a fantasy land. It's no surprise then that exhaustive guides and even specific puzzle solutions have proven popular as players make their way through the Dragon Age mythos, especially with the regular addition of extra game content emerging from game makers BioWare.

Elsewhere, two unreleased games feature as site users eager to get a glimpse of the latest Japanese chart-toppers read up on storyline and technique: the new Final Fantasy XIII was released in Japan on December 17 2009 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will not be available in North America and European regions until March 9.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is the sixtth core game in the Kingdom Hearts series, featuring original characters as well as those from both the Disney stable and the Final Fantasy games. It was out in Japan on January 9 but as of yet does not have a release date set elsewhere.
