It doesn't surprise me. I think the change of scenery definately helps, it the main thing attracting it to me over the past couple of games

I'm surprised WWE13 got so high, I think it's probably the worst wrestling game I've ever played.

No surprise, assassins creed III is No.1 it's amazing and even with all the bugs And I like the fact black ops is 34 and modern warfare3 36 Black ops is by far the best c.o.d out there :)

Don't normally take any notice of anything other than the top 10, but there are some interesting entries further down.

AC3 definitely deserves the top spot - it's a hugely ambitious game and whilst it might trip over itself at times, it's still a triumph.

The sad thing about this is that it will no doubt entire people like Ubisoft to continue making buggy games, or EA that re-releasing last years game (as was reported and proven for the Wii and PSV versions) in new box art is ok as they did with Fifa 13

AC3 had a 3 year development cycle, so it's surprising how many bugs there are. Having said that, it's such a huge game that it would be impossible to wipe out all the bugs. I've not come across anything game breaking, or anything I would consider to be more than a minor graphical glitch.

I've had a couple of really bad ones. Like once I was walking around and fell into a white void. Fell for like 5 minutes and then died lol. Another one it made it impossible to complete a side-mission as it wouldn't let me interact if I was seen, however nobody was around aside from dead guards. Those dead guards could see me.

Was there really any doubt AC3 would be top also seeing as Warfighter is 6th I think there is a lot of unhappy customers. I'm already starting to see a lot of Pre-Owned stock

It happens all of the time. Especially with FPS games where the single played campaign lasts around 5-6 hours. People run through that, try the multiplayer and realise it's not for them/better elsewhere. They've then spent £40 on a 6 hour game so take it to their local shop which is giving about £25 (if you're lucky) back

I knew this would happen. The AC series is so huge and the advertising that has went into it and still is is an amazing. It's everywhere! Even still, when people first heard about it ages ago it was bound to be a success.

Guess this is the calm before the storm that is Halo 4...

The only issue with Halo 4 and this chart is it is only on the one platform. It looks good but would I buy an XBox for it? I dont think so so far with what I've seen. However COD is another matter...

Considering Angry Birds is free on android and extremely cheap for iOS, and having already sold a billion trillion copies, who the hell is buying it full price on a console???
