Amazon 2011 Top Sellers

Joystiq has Amazon's report of the top-selling physical and downloadable games of 2011 sold through the online giant (thanks GamesIndustry.biz (registration required)). Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the number one physical seller, and since it's more reflective of PC sales, here's the list of digital bestsellers:

  1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  2. Battlefield 3
  3. The Sims 3
  4. Battlefield Bad Company 2
  5. Sid Meir's Civilization V
  6. Dead Island
  7. Total War: Shogun 2
  8. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
  9. Crysis 2
  10. Dragon Age 2

Like Hitman: Absolution...

What? The problem with Absolution is that it's making significant (and rather dubious) changes from the previous games. If it was just an improved version of Blood Money, I'd be happy.

The similarities with Deus Ex: Human Revolution are strikingly apparent to me.

If every game from now on were made like Deus Ex, I think I'd be okay with that. What a fantastic game!

I don't think you would be... Give it two or three more games like that, and play nothing else, and you'd go crazy : )

Publications keep saying MW3 is selling well. I've yet to see it on top of any REAL list...

Uh, it's on the list in this topic:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the number one physical seller

Unless a list from Amazon isn't "real" to you. In which case you're weird.
In any case it's selling insanely well on consoles more than PCs. Hell, Amazon only has 1 copy of MW3 for the 360 in stock right now. The only real game above it on Amazon's current list is, oddly, Alice: The Madness Returns downloadable edition.

Yeah, that's on Bethesda, as DX:HR and Civ V and Shogun 2 and MW3 (maybe Dead Island?) are all Steamworks, meaning Amazon just gives you a key. I'm not surprised to see DX:HR on top, they've had some really wicked discounts on that in the past few months.

Yeah, I got it in the Steam sale for a great price. Still got to start it up though. Blame my 7 year - and counting - MMO habit.

Hmm, did Amazon not sell a downloadable version of Skyrim? That's leaving money on the table. Is that b/c Skyrim uses Steamworks?
For some reason none of Bethesda's games are available from Amazon downloads, and it's a damn shame.
