The latest Top 10 PC Charts have been revealed and as we can see, The Sims 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard are this week’s top selling PC titles. The UK PC Retail charts are similar to the ones of last week, though Diablo III has lost one place whereas Football Manager 2012 has managed to reclaim its second top place. Skyrim has also managed to gain one place, whereas Battlefield 3 has managed to gain two places. And as always, The Sims 3 titles dominate this week’s PC retail charts, as there are six ‘The Sims 3’ games.
As usual, the PC Steam Digital Charts tell a completely different story and for the first time, ArmA II: Combined Operations is not at the top place. Instead, the newly released expansion to Skyrim, Dawnguard, is the King of Steam’s sales, followed by Borderlands 2 and ArmA II. Orcs Must Die! 2 is at the fourth place, whereas Skyrim, Civilization V – Gods and Kings and RAGE are at the fifth, sixth and seventh place, respectively. Last but not least, the Game of the Year edition of Borderlands is spotted at the eighth place, followed by Sleeping Dogs and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
