PS3 exclusive zombie horror game The Last Of Us has held on to the top position in the weekly gaming charts. This means that it is the first game of the year to take the top position for four weeks running and holds the retail version of Minecraft off in second. Assassins Creed 3, meanwhile, has benefited from download sales as it was on offer in the Xbox Live game sale.
1 (1) – The Last Of Us
The Last Of Us is, as we keep telling you, a stunning looking game that not only has great visuals but excellent characters and a very strong overall gaming experience. It is a zombie survival horror game but it concentrates on the two main protagonists in the story, rather than the zombies or the events that led to the apocalypse. Definitely worth buying and certainly worth its continued spell at the top.
2 (2) – Minecraft: Xbox 360 Version
Minecraft can feel a little aggrieved at only being second, in some respects. For months and months it sold numerous copies on download and this means that a lot of people already had the game before the retail version went on sale. In this respect, it is perhaps more impressive than Minecraft has held second place than The Last Of Us holding top position.
3 (4) – FIFA 13
Like rumours of Rooney being offloaded by United, FIFA 13 will not go away. New managers, the lure of new signings, and upcoming pre-season tours have helped this impressive footie simulation climb one position back to third place. Grab it now while it’s cheap.
4 (3) – Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Animal Crossing: New Leaf may look like a game that is solely aimed at kids but, in reality, it holds enough strategy and intelligence to entertain people of all ages. It is a Nintendo exclusive in the same ilk as the likes of Yoville and Farmville on Facebook and if you liked those titles then you are sure to love New Leaf.
5 (9) – Assassin’s Creed III
Assassin’s Creed III has benefited from being placed in the Games Sale on Xbox Live over the past week by rising from 9th to an impressive 5th place. The latest in the incredibly popular and top notch series takes place during the American Civil War and whether you are new to the free running, free roaming, free killing experience or not you will love this game.
