The Entertainment Retailers Association has recorded the sales figures of all physical and digital media in Great Britain for the year 2020 and published, among other things, the top 10 best-selling video games there. Behind the Front runner FIFA 21 the latest part of the Call of Duty series Black Ops: Cold War (test) and an old friend who first appeared in September 2013 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3: Grand Theft Auto 5, the Skyrim of gangster games, is still at the top of the sales charts two generations later, despite the new versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X aren't even available yet.
With 1.2 million copies sold, the sandbox shooter is ahead of current titles such as the multiplatform adventure Assassin's Creed Valhalla (665.815), the Nintendo simulation Animal Crossing: New Horizons (810.262) and the Playstation blockbuster The Last of Us: Part 2 (539.247). In addition to the decision to use GTA 5 (buy now € 99.99 /€ 26.99 ) releasing it for each new generation of consoles and the PC should also be the popular game mode GTA Online contribute to the longevity of the game.
The place on the podium is still amazing. In 2020 there were apparently still enough people interested in GTA who did not yet own part five and only now decided to fix this problem. There is hardly any other explanation for the high sales figures. The full list of the UK's top selling games in 2020 can be found below these lines.
