Red dead redemption 2 by far. The shear amount of hype the release has gained between 2010 and now rivals a GTA game and some people will buy it in place of GTA, it won't come close to GTA5 as most people bought rhat twice but it'll definitely get well over cod sales by about 5 million or so, maybe more.

VGChartz.

...wait,are we back to use the Vgchartz numbers? I thought we were going after the official numbers.

If you're signed up and have over 200 posts on VGC in ~3 months, you should be happy to use VGC numbers

No I mean,it is because he at first seemed to dismiss using Vgchartz as a source to compare because of the lack of digital numbers and then went back and used Vgchartz as a source,so I got confused for a second.

Wait, I'm confused here. Doesn't Amazon have Smash Bros listed for Dec, 31st?

As for the question..  well, I'll go with either RDR2, BO4 or Fifa 19.  But it is going to depend on the time of release (alias how many weeks of the year counted).

Labo is a wildcard. Could be nothing, could be the new Wii Fit. And since this is just about 2018 this also rules out anything that's not super-frontloaded so that leaves Call of Duty, Battlefield and Fifa. Maybe Pokemon, but I'd say it's not frontloaded enough to win this. Smash definitely isn't and neither is Red Dead Redemption. Lifetime would be a more difficult story, then those last three could have a decent chance.

For 2018 I'd go with the safest bet; Call of Duty. It seemed to have saved itself from decline, and Battlefield never really got close. Leaves Fifa as it's only contender.

Ever hear of a placeholder?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Are Smash or even Pokemon as front-loaded as COD? Maybe just bias, but I feeel like Nintendo games usually rely more on long tail...see the current chartz with Mario Kart8D, Splatoon 2 and Zelda BOW in the top 10 in Jan.

In other words, COD.



I'd say either Pokémon or RDR2



voted for Black Ops. It is either a COD or Fifa game.
