Nintendo hasn’t given up on a next-gen console, but it still tops the charts at the top of Xbox and Sony.
Amazon regularly maintains a list of its best-selling items broken down into categories throughout the year. One list in particular that is catching people’s attention is the top-selling video game-focused list, and like 2020, Nintendo has once again dominated.
In 2020, Nintendo managed to secure eight of the 10 spots on the list, with Animal crossing: new horizons take the first place with the other places going to the PS4 versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part II.
1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (physics)
2. The stars of Super Mario 3D
3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
5. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (digital)
6. Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4)
7. Ring-shaped adventure
8. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
9. The Last of Us Part II
10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2021 was no different with Nintendo dominating again thanks to games Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Metroid Dread, and more. The list consisted of 20 games and saw Nintendo own 19 slots, Sony taking one with NBA 2K22 on PS4.
Take a look at the full list below:
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
- Just Dance 2022 (Nintendo Switch)
- Animal crossing: new horizons
- Shiny Diamond Pokémon
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
- Mario Party Superstars
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Terror Metroid
- Pokemon shiny pearl
- Super Mario Odyssey
- New Pokémon Snap
- Minecraft (Nintendo Switch)
- Just Dance 2021 (Nintendo Switch)
- Luigi’s Mansion 3
- Super mario party
- Carnival Games (Nintendo Switch)
- Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
- NBA 2K22 (PS4)
It will be interesting to see if Nintendo can maintain that dominance until 2022, with Sony and Microsoft gearing up to ditch a slew of new games. The global chip shortage is affecting Nintendo Switch sales, but that doesn’t stop current hybrid console owners from spending money on these popular titles.
