In Swedish, the words game/games is "spel". Yes, both singular and plural are the same. I guess in German it is: Spiel/Spielen (?).. Spanish: Jogo/Jogos.

Sorry Judaz, I didn't see you were from SPAIN!

All spanish sites I've seen call them videojuegos, not juegos. That's why I thought it was videojuegos in spanish.
