    There are lists of best selling games of 2017 for all four platforms too.

    Battlefront 2 looks to have had a strong performance overall.

    Of the top 10, seven are service games, and the other three are from Nintendo.
     
  4. The king has return. :p

    7 Nintendo exclusives in TOP 20.
    11 Nintendo games in TOP 20, if we count multiplatforms.

    Huge month for Nintendo.

    Yay! Xenoblade 2 charted! Not Top 10, but I'll take Top 20 all the same :D
     
  6. Damn, PUBG cracked top 10. GTA V is #10, can’t knock it down! Crazy that it was the 6th best selling game of 2017.

    Nintendo had a very, very good December.

    Even Xenoblade Chronicles 2 made the top 20 relatively comfortably lol.
     
  8. Quite insane to think really what a turn around Nintendo did in 2017 really.

    Also glad to see all those Nintendo games do well too and get quite high on the list.

    Also GTA V still chartin high insane :P

    Whoa Xenoblade is in top 20. And freaking GTA V. Odyssey and Zelda at top 10 is great too.

    Oh wow Mario Kart 8 is in the top 10 best selling games of 2017? Nintendo has to be making the next Mario Kart for Switch.

    Surprised by Xenoblade 2 at 16. Skyrim seems to have done well on Switch, despite the high asking price. Hopefully Dark Souls will perform even better on Switch!

    They buy the same shit every year. Not sure why they'd suddenly stop and change their buying habits lol. The whole top 10 for the year is pretty predictable and boring really.

    Pokemon is cheaper, they are 13/14th if the ranking was based on units. I'm guessing combined they'd be over >750K

    From the prediction thread, at minimum 3DS sold 1.25M units of software Pokemon US/UM likely makes more than 50% of those software sales, hence the question I asked Mat, he could probably confirm that it's over 50%:

    I think Steam's native DS4 support has now made it the choice for PC gamers. Considering the gyro function and being able to map things to different parts of the touchpad, it makes sense.
