Following a hugely successful year of sales in 2015, despite one or two short falls, United Kingdom high street retailer GAME have revealed the top 10 games that the UK public spent via their stores throughout the year. The retailer is now also launching a competition which will see one lucky gamer win £2015 in reward points via their reward card system. But more on that in a moment, let’s take a look at that top 10.
No surprises for 1, Fallout 4 takes the crown beating typically fast selling multi-platform titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, FIFA 16 and Assassin’s Creed. All of which made their own appearance in the charts:
- Fallout 4
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Assassins Creed: Syndicate
- Star Wars: Battlefront
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
- Destiny: The Taken King
- Halo 5: Guardians
- FIFA 16
Of course, this chart is limited to just one retailer so it’s likely that if you total up all the scores from across the various retailers and digital markets, it will change somewhat. That said there still a couple of surprising results, Seeing Halo 5: Guardians, an Xbox One exclusive place 9th above FIFA 16 for example is very very surprising… And what’s this… A Call of Duty title in 6th!!! Madness, and when the hell did Assassins Creed get so dam popular?
What’s really important here is how this chart reflects on 2015 as a year for gamers. However you look at it, the developers did a great job of making 2015 one of the best years we’ve ever seen in gaming, so good in fact it’s difficult to see exactly how they’re going to continue this trend into the new year, fortunately we’ve got a great line up to look forward to this year with some amazingly talented developers leading backed by huge companies leading the charge.
As previously mentioned, GAME are looking to celebrate the amazing year they’ve had with their latest competition, if you hold a GAME reward card and make a video game purchase through the retailer this month then you will be automatically entered for the chance to win £2015 worth of reward points to spend in store.
