The Best Selling Games of 2014

The UK’s top selling games of 2014 have been revealed. The top picks are as predictable as you would expect, but there are a few pleasant surprised thrown into the mix.

According to MCV sales data FIFA 15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V were the top selling games this year, with new IPs Destiny and Watchdogs populating the 4th and 5th spots respectively.

It was another strong year for games such as Minecraft, which grabbed the 6th spot. FIFA 14, Far Cry 4, Call of Duty Ghosts and Assassins’s Creed Unity made up the remainder of the top 10, with a particularly strong showing from Ubisoft.

PS4 exclusive Driveclub fared surprisingly well considering its disatrous launch, managing to be the top selling exclusive title of 2014, beating out competitors such as Infamous Second Son and Forza Horizon 2.

Unfortunately some excellent titles such as Alien Isolation, Dragon Age Inquisiton and Shadow of Mordor did not perform as well, but still produced commendable sales. Bear in mind that MCV doesn’t take digital sales into account, which could change the landscape of the top performers completely.
