UK 2010 Chart Of Best Selling Games

The best selling games of 2010 (in the UK) have been revealed and summarized by the UKIE (United Kingdom Interactive Entertainment Association) detailing the titles that happily raked in the cash mountains last year. *sighs in satisfaction and looks vaguely concerned at how light his wallet feels*

Nothing particularly surprising here but it’s interesting to see how the chosen game of the year, Red Dead Redemption, fared against its competitors in terms of units shifted. I suppose it’s a testament to the VGA awards and the judges panel for keeping their critical heads screwed on properly and making a decision that represents the more experienced and artistic tastes in the gaming industry, rather than being victim to the mass influence of commercial success.

As a side note, I still find it hugely revealing and highly amusing that the shooting genre always boast a larger representative presence in the end of year charts. I guess we’re all just suckers for guns?  I am surprised however, with Starcraft 2’s sales…

Remember though, this is just for the merry ol’ UK:
