The 100 Best-selling Boxed Games of 2013

UKIE/GfK Chart-Track have revealed the top 100 selling boxed video games in the UK for 2013 and there is no surprised that GTA V topped the list. The Top 10 was made of up of many of the years big blockbusters such as Call of Duty, Assassins Creed and Battlefield. EA’s FIFA franchised managed to get 2 games in the top 10 in FIFA 13 and FIFA 14.

The highest Next Gen exclusive was the PS4’s Killzone Shadow Fall at number 17 while the highest Xbox One game was Forza Motorsport 5 at 43.

The much maligned and poorly reviewed Aliens: Colonial Marines was at 26 with the high position most likely de to its high anticipation before release.

In reflection of the poor sales of the Wii U, Wii U exclusive games were lowly ranked although 3DS games feared better with top 30 appearances.

Here is the full list of the top 100
