The List of the Best-Selling Games of 2023?
Mat released a list of the best-selling games of January 2023. It also confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold the most copies last month. Even more, the Dead Space Remake took second place, followed by Madden 23 and Fifa 23.
The list also shows Fire Emblem Engage, the Nintendo Switch Exclusive, in fifth place. However, the popular title Elden Ring only came in at sixth place. It also came as a surprise to see God of War: Ragnarok in eighth place following its recent rise to fame.
Also, further down the list, we spot The Last of Us Part 1 in 11th place. It also showed a rise from 36th place due to the popular HBO adaptation. Other notable mentions include Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Minecraft, Mario Kart, and Sonic Frontiers.
However, the latter parts of the list include NBA 2K23, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and NHL 23. Players reading the list should also note that this is a revenue-based chart. It also means they based the list on dollar sales and not units sold.
