    You expected Pokémon to win against FPSes and Skyrim?
    What were the US sales of Black/White anyway?

    I only bought one of those games. I ended up selling it as well. Internet cookie for who guesses which game it was.

    With only 3.8 million sales, I'm not surprised it's not in the top ten.

    Not surprised by the list.
    How many of the games did people here play or buy?
    I got Skyrim, Gears 3 and Batman. Might try B3 & MW3 some day when they are like £5 each.

    I didn't buy a single game on that list. It's too bad more people don't do the same, but what can ya do.

    "triangal", really? I weep for the future

    besides, an american football is shaped more like a rugby football (which is something an aussie could relate to ;)

    I didn't buy any of those either. Really didn't interest me. Though in 2011 I did get a lot of good games. Shame they didn't make it to the list :\

    I'm glad to see Batman made the list, it earned it's sales.

    I bought Batman, Skyrim, and Battlefield 3. I'd like to get the newest Assassins Creed, but I'll wait for it to drop to around $20ish.
