The latest UK PC Retail and Steam Digital charts have been revealed and as we can see, Diablo III and ArmA II: Combined Operations are at the top places. As always, the UK PC retail charts remain – almost – the same with those of last week’s. Diablo III has managed to dethrone Football Manager 2012, while Mass Effect 3 has re-enter the Top 10. Both Skyrim and Battlefield 3 have gained one place, whereas Star Wars: The Old Republic has fallen to the eighth place.
Remember that amazing zombie mod for ArmA 2, called DayZ. Well, thanks to that, ArmA II: Combined Operations has managed to hit the first place of Steam’s charts. And this is precisely why developers should support mods. It’s beneficial, so there is no reason to ‘lock’ your games guys. Want another example of a game that sells like hotcakes due to its incredible modding community? Skyrim, which is at the second place of Steam’s charts. Torchlight II can be spotted at the third place, followed by CoD: MW3’s Collection 1 DLC and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Portal 2 is at the sixth place, whereas Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Sniper: Elite V2 are at the seventh and eighth place, respectively. Thanks to Ubi’s special weekend offer, Ghost Recon’s Complete Pack is at the ninth place and the amazing indie game, Dear Esther, is at the final place.
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.
