FIFA 12 has bagged the top spot as the UK's best selling game once more. It has dominated the charts since the start of the year and has become the highest-grossing sports game in the UK ever.

Elsewhere, Modern Warfare 3 nips back up the charts, jumping from fourth to second and displacing Skyrim and Battlefield 3 on the way. Saints Row The Third also rises from eight to round out the Top Five.

The biggest climber this week is bastard-hard RPG Dark Souls, which rose from eighteenth to eleventh. Resistance 3, meanwhile, dropped four places to eighteenth.

Loving the COD/Skyrim/BF3 musical chairs, however ALL 3 of them deserve to rank above a crappy footie sim. Skylanders will shoot up again soon, now that the figures are starting to come back into stock

Skylanders ... Hmmm ... so it has become popular? Maybe I'll try it, but I would have preferred somehow that they put them in mysteryboxes, so that you wouldn't have a clou which one you buy. Would also be a win for EA.

@3 Skylanders is surprisingly good, my kids have it for the Wii, I'm thinking of buying the PS3 version for the trophies when it drops in price (all achievable using the starter pack).

@2
Yeah, a pretty huge sale too most likely.
Because i'm betting no one would pay more than a dollar for that game

@1 How do all 3 "deserve" to rank above FIFA? The masses have spoken, and decided that FIFA is number 1.

FIFA = best serie on a console. Only the ignorant would call it a "crappy footie sim".

In what sense? They're both hugely popular games with massive fanbases....because they produce good games year after year.....People only hate on annual games series to be "different" and go against the grain. GO, NON CONFORMISTS!!! /sarcasm.

I love Fifa but can never play it for more than a month at most.
Deserves top?

@1 I bet you haven't even played FIFA 12. There's a reason for why it's Number 1.

@5 When will you stop mocking every video game on this planet? Jesus. It's stupid that people base all of their opinion on the game's difficulty. Dark Souls had intent to be extremely difficult. I'd like to see someone who has the guts to take it on. You are not one of those people.

I'm happy to see Dark Souls still hanging snugly on the charts. Its always welcome to see a genuinely challenging game in this era instead of jet set piece after set piece in either an insultingly easy game or something that gives the impression of difficultly by making enemies extremely cheap and frustrating.

Glad to see Rayman on the charts too. Can't wait to pick up a copy of that game.
