Four new entries have stormed the top ten charts this week but PS3 exclusive title The Last Of Us retains its top spot ahead of the Xbox 360 retail version of Minecraft. Animal Crossing: New Leaf and FIFA 13 both dropped a place each to third and fourth respectively while The Sims 3: Island Paradise came in fifth position. Other new entries included Dead Pool in 6th, Company of Heroes 2 on the PC in 10th and Aliens: Colonial Marines in 19th spot.
1 (1) – The Last Of Us
The Last Of Us has retained its position at the top of the charts for the third week running, especially impressive when you consider that it is a Playstation 3 exclusive. If you’ve not yet experienced it then be prepared for a dark and gloomy, but ultimately stunning and immersive zombie survival game.
2 (-) – Minecraft
Minecraft has proven a digitally downloadable phenomenon and with 25 million users before it even hit retail shelves it is arguably one of the biggest Xbox 360 games of all time. Every world created in this building resource management crossover is different and you will need to advance and evolve along with your wold in order to enjoy the level of success required.
3 (2) – Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Animal Crossing games are a hybrid between world builder and Sims style life simulation games, with oodles of kid’s characterisation thrown in for good measure too. Be prepared to have Animal Crossing take over your life as you need to check in to see how your buildings and your game are progressing. If a building says it won’t be ready for 6 hours it means literally and so you will want to set your alarm to make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to build more or craft more. If Farmville got you excited then you will love New Leaf.
4 (3) – FIFA 13
FIFA 13 is hanging around like the proverbial bad smell and while it may have dropped from third to fourth it continues to linger in the top five. If you haven’t played it yet, then you must be one of around 7 people. You might as well part with the cash now while the title is cheaper because FIFA 14 will be along soon enough.
5 (-) – The Sims 3: Island Paradise
The Sims 3 Island Paradise is a PC exclusive title and it is likely to have sold considerably more copies than its fifth position belies (few downloaded games are included). It is an expansion and it is a Sims game which means that is ludicrously immersive and incredibly good fun.
