It’s that time of the year. The holidays are over and done with, your New Year’s resolutions lay discarded by the husks of so many yesterdays, and we find out the best-selling games of the previous year! Amazon has published their top 10 sellers, and there are a couple of surprises. Here they are, both the physical and digital lists:


1.Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
2. Just Dance 3
3. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
4. Battlefield 3
5. Batman: Arkham City
6. Madden NFL 12
7. Portal 2
8. Just Dance 2
9. Gears of War 3
10. FIFA Soccer 12


1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
2. Battlefield 3
3. The Sims 3
4. Battlefield Bad Company 2
5. Sid Meier’s Civilization V
6. Dead Island
7. Total War: Shogun 2
8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
9. Crysis 2
10. Dragon Age 2

I think everyone could call Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, and Battlefield 3; however, I was surprised to see Deus Ex at the top of the digital list; didn’t realize it was quite so popular. And I love seeing a game of Portal 2’s caliber on the list. It deserves every bit of praise heaped upon it.
