Our figurative money was on FIFA 19 being the last no.1 of 2018. In the past, EAâ€™s annual soccer sim has always proven popular with those fortunate enough to receive a new console for Christmas.
Thereâ€™s a new bandit in town this year though, with RDR2 topping the final chart of 2018.
The Christmas sales havenâ€™t had much of an impact at all, as the top ten only sees a slight shuffle. FIFA 19 and Black Ops 4 hold onto #2 and #3, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate moved up to #4, while the recently discounted Battlefield V dropped to #5.
At #6 itâ€™s Forza Horizon 4, up from #10. Spyro Reignited Trilogy took #7, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fell to #8, and Crash Bandicoot remained at #9.
Then at #10 itâ€™s Marvelâ€™s Spider-Man, a title that has gained a new lease of life this winter thanks to a price cut.
Positions #10-#20 are also almost entirely unchanged this week, with only four titles moving marginally and the remaining six staying put.
Outside of the top #20, Starlink: Battle for Atlas â€“ available for as low as Â£17.99 recently â€“ rises three positions to #24. Good old Rocket League also saw a minor sales boost, up six places to take #25.
Splatoon 2 bounced is back at #28, while Switch launch title 1-2 Switch makes a surprise re-appearance at #38. We dare say milking virtual cows was a more pleasurable way to spend the holidays than watching the rubbish on TV over the festive period. That two-hour Inbetweeners reunion thing was bloody awful.
