Best selling games of 2016 so far


2016 has been a great year for games, we’re already halfway through the year. Time flies and that’s even more so true when you’re having a great time playing games! I’ve managed to compile a list of the best selling games of 2016 so far (in the genres we’re interested in).

1) Uncharted 4 : A Thief’s End








Drake is back with a vengeance. Straight to the top of our best selling list for 2016 and it’s only been out for over a month. I guess that’s to be expected from this generations most anticipated game of 2016.


2)  Doom

Not surprisingly, the much anticipated Doom has been making a lot of noise and for good reason! It’s the first person shooter, that we’ve all come to love.


3) Overwatch

Overwatch is Blizzard’s first attempt at creating a first-person shooter.. and boy is it good! It’s no wonder it’s number 3 on the list. Blizzard really know how to make their games it seems 🙂


4) Ratchet and Clank

A deeper version of the original game, Ratchet and Clank is back! Included with the game is footage from the feature film.


5) Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto is a mammoth and is one of the biggest games on the list. Still selling like hot cakes!


6) Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

The Elder Scroll’s latest offering is an update to the awesome Skyrim with playable mods on the console editions. It’s not out yet, but it’s already on the list selling like crazy.


7) Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront is up here, which may surprise some readers since its content offering has been very limited. Nevertheless! It hasn’t hampered the financial success of the game.


8) The Last of Us: Remastered

Winning over 200 gaming awards, being remastered on the current generation consoles, it’s still up here. A testament to the game’s great experience.


9) Battlefield 1

Battlefield is having a bit of a reboot in its series, going back to the first world war. It’s not out until, October, but it’s doing big numbers on the pre-orders.


10) Days Gone

From the E3 previews, this game looked really cool but it is another survival zombie game. I was hoping for more, but it seems like a lot of people want to pre-order the game! What are your thoughts on the preview of this game?

So that rounds up the list of the best selling games this year. There are some exciting upcoming games in the list that I am looking forward to! I hope you enjoyed this list, if you did, please like, comment and share.
