The latest Top 10 PC charts have been revealed and as we can see, Guild Wars 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are the best selling titles for the PC. What’s really remarkable here is that Guild Wars 2 has managed to top every single game in UK, including the console ones, whereas Football Manager 2012, Darksiders II and Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition are nowhere to be found. Apart from these changes though, UK’s PC retail charts are a bit similar to last week’s. Sleeping Dogs has dropped to the ninth place, whereas Diablo III and Skyrim have gained one and two places, respectively. And naturally, the Top 10 is overloaded with The Sims 3 titles.
As you may have expected, Steam’s digital charts tell a different story. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is at the first place and is followed by Borderlands 2, ArmA II: Combined Operations, Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition and The Walking Dead. Skyrim Dawnguard is at the sixth place, while Sleeping Dogs and Skyrim are at the seventh and eighth place. The Top10 is completed with War of the Roses and Sid Meier’s Civilization V – Gods and Kings.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
