I'm deeply offended by such a huge EA pile of crap game like NFS Payback still beating out Wolfenstein 2! That's disgusting, really.

This is why we can't have nice things


Errorist76 (on 15 January 2018)

So does this list include only retail or digital sales as well?!


Ka-pi96 (on 15 January 2018)

Pretty sure its retail only. Would expect Football Manager to be higher up if it included digital, although #82 for a physical PC game isn't bad!

People shouldn't ask for any innovation in games when all they buy is this


LuccaCardoso1 (on 15 January 2018)

Exactly. FIFA and CoD are within the Top 3 best selling games almost every year.

Maybe, you know, the people asking for innovation are not the same people who only buy these games, just a thought...

LuccaCardoso1 (on 15 January 2018)

Masked_Muchaco But many of them are. Remember CoD Infinite Warfare? That game got a lot of backlash for lack of innovation, and it sold much worse. Still a lot, but much worse. People just don't seem to care anymore.

It's amazing that Forza Horizon 3 is at #13 even though it released more than a year ago.


Masked_Muchaco (on 15 January 2018)

It's already the best selling forza game on XB1, very deserved imo. For me this game is Microsoft's magnum opus of this gen.

Agree with pikashoe

My first year in college gave me a hatred for fifa. The people I was around played it all day every day, nothing else just fifa.

Best selling game, but also just outright best game of the year. I'm loving it :)

That top ten is pretty dull. The UK really needs to branch out a bit in terms of the games they play.


PEEPer0nni (on 15 January 2018)

Gran Turismo? Crash?

pikashoe (on 15 January 2018)

Crash as much as I love them is a remake of 20 year old games. Gran turismo is a shadow of its former self. Horizons probably the most interesting in the top 10 being a new ip.

You clearly haven't played GT Sport if you think that.

I haven't heard much good about it.

blackwarryor (on 15 January 2018)

I agree with you. The problem is that all AAA games that come from EA/Activision absolutely destroys the competition, no matter what other great games released. Yes, GT Sport and Crash are great, but when you see all the games coming from Japan far far behind their western equivalent, there is a problem of taste/advertisement/culture i don't know. (Splatoon 2 is 40th.)
Even Mario Oddyssey, BotW and MK8D which all are excellent games are out of the top 10. Then we have Lego Worlds selling approximately as much as Zelda. Mmh, yeah it's fair. Seriously tho..

As usual by people who haven't even played the game, I assume.
