2010: The games that you brought lots of

With the dust now starting to settle on 2010, the UKIE (The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment) have released charts for the best selling games of last year.

The biggest surprise of all though is to find that Art Academy was one of the best selling DS games of last year.

The best seller list for PSP makes for sad reading – two of the five games are FIFA. A similar thing has happened in the PC chart too, with both Football Manager 2010 and Football Manager 2011 being present.
