Lollipop Chainsaw didn't even make the top 100 yet Wonderbook did, that's a fecking travesty, shame on UK gamers.

It would be interesting to see the actual figures sold alongside that list, then perhaps a series of graphs that show the breakdown by relative formats....

Hitman sold more than Far Cry 3? Didn't see that one coming

I would love to see some figures. Darksiders 2 is painfully low down that list. Any wonder THQ is hurting.

It might deserve to be there I don't know. I'm only 5(ish) hours in.

I wonder out of those 100 which ones turned a profit?

I assume this doesn't include digital download sales as well though?

Edit: PC sales actually might not even be included, going off a post Rebellion sent out on Twitter.

Skate 3 still selling well makes me happy, hopefully a Skate 4 in the near future!

Good to see Hitman in there, it would just about squeeze into my top 3 which after much deliberation are;

Dishonoured
Hitman
Max Payne 3

XBL- Trials Evolution

I thank you.

Also a worthy mention to BF3 considering it was released in 2011.

No Journey? Shame.

Shows the willingess of people to fork out £40 on games when only 2 sell over a million. Unknown franchises or 'risky' buys are turned down for 'safe' buys

Indeed. A pity Dragon's Dogma wasn't up there because those two were standout games for me last year.

Seriously ? If you want to waste money give me the £40 instead.

21 > RESIDENT EVIL 6 – Capcom
94 > RESIDENT EVIL: OPERATION RACCOON CITY – Capcom
99 > 007 LEGENDS - Activision Blizzard

Nice to see the fatties contributing to the industry

46 > ZUMBA FITNESS - 505 Games
55 > ZUMBA FITNESS 2 - 505 Games

Good to see this in the charts, always enjoyed these titles

82 > PROFESSOR LAYTON AND THE MIRACLE MASK - Nintendo
