Best-selling Video Games Of 2010 (UK)

If you have not listened to the latest edition of the Platform Nation podcast (Lock and Load) then you will have missed, among other things, the hosts listing their best 5 games of 2010.  As with any personal list, everyone has an opinion but when the official video game sales figures for the United Kingdom were released earlier today we could not help but bring you the news so you could see if either of the Lock and Load hosts (Steve, Scott & Mark) lists were similar.

In the All Formats Chart, only Red Dead Redemption, Halo:Reach & Battlefield: Bad Company 2 featured on either Steve, Scott or Marks top 5 list.  Neither of the top 3 selling games were mentioned during the podcast, except Call of Duty: Black Ops, but this was only when being mentioned in comparison to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.  FIFA continued its recent dominance over Pro Evolution Soccer and Just Dance was so popular that both it and its sequel made the top 10.

Now that the figures are official, what are your thoughts? Some gamers may complain about ‘shovelware’, or the annual release in a series but for companies wanting to make a profit, there is a very clear message coming from these charts. The UK needs to prepare itself for more sequels and with any luck that will include a Red Dead Redemption one.
