Number One on the List of Britain's Best Selling Games of 2012 Won't Surprise YouIf it does, you’re either living under a very large rock, or you pay no attention to video games and have somehow stumbled upon this page by accident.

It’s Black Ops II. Of course, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the UK’s best selling video game of 2012, as the GfK Chart-Track revealed and we saw thanks to MCV. However, FIFA 13 gave it a run for it’s money and picked up the second place spot.

Some startling figures within the top 20 are;

1. FIFA titles appear three times, one of them being the previous year’s FIFA 12.

2. Call of Duty picked up the 18th place spot with Modern Warfare 3.

3. Only one new IP made it onto the list – Sleeping Dogs.

You can see the full list below. Is any of this a surprise, or do you think that the top 20 standings are exactly how you thought they would be?
