It’s a little hard to muster up enthusiasm for the final chart of the year. There are no new arrivals and very few re-entries, plus the titles in the top ten are likely to remain there for weeks – if not months – to come.

Every game in the top ten did however see a sales boost, with GTA V and DriveClub in particular enjoying stronger sales than during last week’s pre-Christmas chart. It’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare that occupies the top spot though, making it five non-consecutive weeks for the future set shooter.

At #2 it’s GTA V, which is then followed by FIFA 15, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 to form the UK’s top five.

The Crew holds fast at #6, DriveClub moves up from #12 to #7 while the next three titles remain unchanged – Minecraft: Xbox Edition, Minecraft: PlayStation Edition and LEGO Batman 3.

Glancing down the top 40 our attention is drawn to a couple of notable risers – LittleBigPlanet 3 is up from #20 to #13 while Alien Isolation goes from #35 to #24.

As for the previously mentioned re-entries, Wolfenstein: The New Order is back at #32 while Sunset Overdrive leaps in at #34. Then at #39 Call of Duty: Ghosts makes a not particularly spooky reappearance.

We thought Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker might have entered the chart due to the broken street date but that’s not the case. Not to worry – Toad’s arrival will make next week’s chart slightly more thrilling.
