Far Cry 3 overtakes Black Ops 2 in the charts? Insane but true.

by December 31st, 2012

As we dim the lights on 2012, it’s time for one final chart update before the new year comes bounding up on us, and the number 1 spot is something of a surprise…

Far Cry 3 overtakes Black Ops 2 in the charts? Insane but true.

Well, it shouldn’t be really. The sheer awesomeness of Far Cry 3 has allowed it to climb back into the number one spot, overtaking Fifa 13 and Black Ops 2 in the process. With titles like Forza Horizon and Dishonored climbing back into the top 20, will the post-Christmas sales see the charts doing a big switcheroo in the coming weeks? Will that top 3 see an even bigger alteration? Will my new Year’s Resolution be ‘Never use the word ‘Switcheroo’ again? Only time will tell…

Well, after 4 years lurking in the darkest corners of YARS, it's probably about time I updated this profile. I'm Ben, one of the senior editors here, and outside of scribbling on here, editing and finding pwetty pics to put in reviews, I'm studying 'Game Cultures' at uni. That's...that's game development in simpler terms, I don't spend my time analysing pixelated toes to determine whether they're 'art' or not. Anyway, I generally write to either save people money on utter crud or at least make them smile in some wry way with my bitterness and general disdain. If you're not laughing with me, you're laughing at me, and hey, that's progress in my books. 🙂
