The Sims 4 and God of War are back at the top of the rankings for video games this week, while Octopath Traveler, which has been widely awaited for the Nintendo Switch, is now officially available. Crash Bandicoot is still at the top of the charts for Xbox One. The Incredibles LEGO game struggles to get to the top console rankings, while Jurassic World: Evolution fell a few levels down the charts.
This week, the number one PlayStation 4 game is God of War, which dethrones Jurassic Park World: Evolution and is replaced by newcomer LEGO: The Incredibles.
There are still a couple of Bethesda titles in the top ten PlayStation 4 games this week, but Fallout 4 is the only one to maintain its ranking due to its recent strong sales.
This week’s movers and shakers include FIFA 18 and Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition, which soared back into the top 10, and Far Cry 5, which rose a few spots.
This week, Detroit: Become Human, The Crew 2, and Jurassic World Evolution all see drops in popularity.
God of War, a big AAA game from Sony, is back and again holding the top slot.
The self-published PlayStation 4 game, which features the action of well-known God of War Kratos as he hacks and slashes his way across ancient Scandinavia, has seen enormous popularity since its debut in late April.
The most recent game in the God of War series has new gaming mechanics and certain variances from the earlier games.
The game also employs a series first, continuous shot element, which means that play is uninterrupted by any cutscenes, and all of the action is seen via an over-the-shoulder third-person camera. Kratos no longer wields his trademark double-chained blades in favour of a more Scandinavian-appropriate battle-axe.
God of War is currently accessible only on PlayStation 4.
Crazy action platformer Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which has been selling very well across all systems, is still at the top of the charts this week.
The king of football simulation, FIFA 18, is also maintaining its position this week. It has seen extraordinarily strong sales, which were likely aided by this year’s World Cup, which was hosted in Russia during the summer.
The number two spot is taken by a new entry, LEGO: The Incredibles, which moves down one spot. Evolution in Jurassic World.
Football Manager 2018, another perennial top-seller on the PC video game charts, has overtaken The Sims 4 in the top position after recently falling to second place due to the introduction of new games in recent months.
Another The Sims 4 expansion, The Sims 4: Get Together, is going up this week, while Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset is returning to the top 10.
The Sims 4: Seasons, which has held the top rank since its debut a few weeks ago, is the only game to have fallen this week.
The Sims 4, the reigning monarch of life simulation game, is again at the top of the charts this week.
The Sims 4 has been out of the top slot for a few weeks, but its most recent extension, Sims 4 Seasons, has enjoyed the top spot, which has helped sales for the other The Sims 4 expansions and given Electronic Arts control of 60% of the PC video game charts this week.
The Sims 4 is the fourth installment in Electronic Arts’ and The Sims Studio’s hugely successful The Sims video game franchise (formerly Maxis).
The Sims 4 includes many features that the game is famous for, like house building and life simulation, which includes raising a family, creating Sims, getting those Sims a job, and ultimately looking after them until they die. Even then, you can keep playing with those Sims as they turn into ghosts, each with unique visuals and features based on how they died!
Other life simulation video games abound, but none come close to The Sims or The Sims 4.
Only The Sims Studio seems to be able to integrate many of the elements outlined in an entertaining, fulfilling, and distinctive manner.
The Sims 4: Seasons and The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs extension packs, which were previously highlighted, are only two examples of the often released material and expansion packs that keep adding to the excitement.
The Sims 4 is one of the greatest and most well-known games currently available, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It is accessible for PC and consoles and sells well everywhere.
I believe that The Sims 4’s removal from the top ten of the PC game rankings will only happen when The Sims 5 is released, which is most likely to happen within the next two years.
Usually, the Nintendo Switch doesn’t witness the release of many new AAA games, but this week, there are three new games to select from.
Octopath Traveler has supplanted Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which had held the top spot for the previous two weeks.
The second new release, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, has also dethroned Mario Tennis Aces, another Nintendo game that was independently produced.
There are no climbers this week since all of the other games on the Nintendo Switch video game charts have fallen in the rankings due to the new arrivals this week.
Octopath Traveller’s role-playing game makes excellent use of the Unreal Engine 4, typically used for high-end first and third-person action games with immense graphical quality. It combines old-school graphics elements like a 2D isometric perspective and sprites with modern effects like HD textures and polygons.
A common RPG-style game in which the player chooses from eight different characters, each of whom uniquely begins the game at a unique location in the game world and interacts with NPCs distinctively.
The game uses turn-based fights with conventional RPG components like elemental attacks, special abilities, weapons, etc. Thus it lends itself nicely to Short play and Nintendo Switch.
Octopath Traveler has received high marks from numerous reputable gaming websites and reviewers, including IGN, Polygon, and GameSpot. In some cases, it has received scores of 9 out of 10. This makes it a legitimate contender for any Nintendo Switch games that have just been released, including the enormous selection of already available self-published Nintendo AAA games.
Octopath Traveler is currently only accessible on the Nintendo Switch.
The Sims 4 once again puts in an outstanding performance as The Sims 4 basic game succeeds its own recently released expansion, The Sims 4 Seasons, at the top of the charts.
This week left a lot of non-movers, including three The Sims 4 expansions.
Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are two further non-movers.
Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition and Fallout 4 rose in the Xbox One top ten video game rankings, similarly to the PlayStation 4 game charts.
Crash Bandicoot is still running and hopping in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which continues to hold the top spot on this week’s Xbox One video game rankings.
The finest Crash Bandicoot games are part of the newly released trilogy series.
Not only do the three games described belowcome with the freshly published upgrade, but also newly recorded audio, HD cutscenes, and HD graphics.
Suppose they haven’t played this game series before. In that case, fans of Naughty Dog entertainment will feel right at home since they will recognise the superb level of design, humour, and gaming mechanics often associated with the Uncharted creator.
The Weekly Video Game Charts – The New Superheroes Are Repelled by an Old God
Unfortunately, God of War on the PS4 has begun to overtake Jurassic World: Evolution, last week’s excellent new release and the platform’s top game. Nevertheless, don’t be deterred since Jurassic World Evolution is a fantastic game that belongs on every lover of simulation’s games shelf.
God of War made a victorious comeback, but the question remains: Will this game ever be stopped? The action hack and slash from Sony, which is now at the top of the rankings, is almost always at the top; it only changes positions when a new AAA game is released.
Everyone’s favorite wild marsupial, Crash Bandicoot, continues to experience remarkable success and holds the top spot on the Xbox One list and other top spots.
The Sims 4, too. The Sims 4 is true. It is once again the king of PC. The massive life simulation game sells exceptionally well for EA four years after its debut, only truly being surpassed by its expansions. I can’t wait to see what they come up with with the just-released addition for Sims 4 called Sims 4: Seasons, which is fantastic.
However, LEGO: The Incredibles deserves a special mention because it is currently holding down the number two position on both the Xbox One and PS4 comfortably and is only being pushed aside by two wildly successful and fiercely competitive AAA titles, God of War and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, respectively.
