    Good to see a quality game still at the top :)

    Do Square still judge Tomb Raider as a sales failure? :P

    Probably, as the UK/European market seem to be the only place it sells. In Japan and America it’s no longer in the top10 according to (the miserable but only numbers at hand from) vgcharts…

    Fair enough, can’t say I agree with their definition of a failure though.

    Methinks they may have had unrealistic expectations.

    it is a conspiracy to cover their japanese devision failure

    they are lying because they don’t want to admit to us or their investors that they failed miserably in Japan and Eidos is the only thing keeping them alive

    Good to see that Sim City is leaving the charts too.

    But how is Far Cry 3 still selling?

    That is a decent hold for Defiance. Seriously strange game (A title based on an UNAIRED TV series which happens to be a MMO for all platforms!).

    Happy that another single player game has proved it doesn’t need a bolt on MP component to sell well.

    Sad that it wasn’t half as good as its predecessors.

    Yeah, the game was so disappointing, I might actually consider giving the first one a shot again.

    At some point, the gameplay got so stale that I just wanted to stop playing. The story didn’t impress me in the least, at time I thought it was rather predictable. I didn’t feel any connection to either of the main characters. Elizabeth really isn’t that interesting and neither is broody Booker. Sometimes I actually felt like I was playing utter morons.

    The 20 min. of exposition at the end didn’t help to change my mind about the game.
