Out of all those, the only one I'd see on any good list is l4d.

Who the hell cares about a fooball manager. far cry 2 is nothing special, the same can be said about fallout 3 and gta.

Spore was a very big dissapointment.

Apparently the waw cod is worse than it's predecessor.

And would not put a datadisk for uh a 3 year old game (sims2) on the best of this year.

And I want red alert's 2 tanya, not a porn actress.

These are sale figures that this user claimed to have found (and I guess it's their site too), not ratings.

Football Manager just sounds so...boring. The new CoD being worse than Modern Warfare doesn't surprise me, what with it being a different developer and all. Treyarch is a decent company, but they just don't hold a candle to Infinity Ward. They're games just aren't as tight and impactful as the other ones; they just keep the franchise making money while IW works on the next great installment.

This is the most popular games list if you use the GameRankings.com search engine and set the filters to PC platform, all genres, last 12 months, 10 results. All those preferring RPG over FPS claiming FPS gets the most attention in development and consumerism should take note of this. There's only one FPS on the list, Left 4 Dead.

BTW, what kind of name is "Loveshopping"? Sounds more like an adult match making service or sex novelty store than a site for gaming info. LOL

I wouldn't say it's any better or worse. It's the same engine (with minor tweaks to allow for bodily dismemberment!), almost identical gameplay, just in a very different setting with different weapons. Some say it's more like a mod.

To that I say, whatever. I like World at War, and I would recommend it just as much as I would Call of Duty 4. Sure, it's not as groundbreaking, but that's because CoD4 broke all the ground for it. =p

Well to be fully honest I don't consider WoW/Mass effect/FO3 to be real rpg's

And what is gta but an FPS?

Thouhg surprised that sam and max/audiosurf and sins rank so high.

GTA IV is a TPS. Nobody uses that acronym anymore but I'm pretty sure it's still valid.

I'm surprised at Audiosurf too, it's super fun but I had no Idea it would beat out many of the "high budget" games.

Omen's list makes more sense. The first one is just garbage, who gives a toss about Football Manager 09? And I have to agree with Wraithcat, COD: WAW wasn't worth the $60 (I know, I'm an idiot) and Spore was an utter disappointment.

Again, this is a sales list, not a personal ranking, ratings of recent hits, hype, and what not. It is from UK video game receipts. This is not based on video game rankings, or what category this game comes from, just what the stores reported people bought for each week.

The OP mentioned the ELSPA, which manages sales figures for video games in the UK among other things. It is basically lifting that from there.

For example, this is the total, including consoles, in the UK.

ELSPA

This is the PC only, which the OP did.

ELSPA

The steam list I don't know where it is, but other sites have the same exact sales rankings.

This is the UK only. I guarantee you a football manager/soccer game would never appear in a US list.

This is the US PC hits, if you are curious
