Amazon Announces Top 10 Games Of 2011 (With Surprising Results)

Amazon has gone ahead and announced the top selling games from 2011 which reveals some very interesting details. Amazon for one has become a gamer’s paradise thanks to its exclusive pre-order bonuses, same day release shipping and overall discounts so their results do give a good reflection of the state of the gaming industry.

In terms of surprises, for one Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 came in as the top-grossing video game of all-time however barely made an impact on the digital downloads list. Another big surprise was that Nintendo didn’t have a single one of their titles in either of the two best-selling lists despite showing more Wii and DS/3DS units sold over any other console worldwide. That’s right, you won’t find Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario Land 3D or even the popular and Mario Kart 7 anywhere.

Lastly, although not much of a surprise, the best selling physical titles were released during the holiday season (October-December) while digital titles were evenly spread across 2011. Check out the list below.
