Forums - Gaming Discussion - Most Wanted December Results! Cyberpunk's Last Stand

So I may have had some technical difficulties thanks to a laptop that decided to go rogue. But I'll try to get this up as quickly as possible. 

First thing I would like to address, Playstation made a bit of a comeback in this thread. This is the first month that we have had 4 Playstation titles in the top since August. Final Fantasy XVI makes its strongest showing at number 2. God of War hits the top 10 and there seems to be a little rivalry going on between Horizon and Ratchet & Clank (with R&C barely getting the edge this month). 

Secondly, this month we finally say our goodbyes to Cyberpunk 2077! Normally I don't do a big sendoff for specific titles but this game is the only multiplatform game I have ever seen to keep such high stamina for 3 different platform releases. Between PC, PS, and Xbox, it has stayed in the top 10 since August of last year. It is impressive because while PC has been the most prominent platform, there have been months where either PS or XB were the only versions that appeared in the top 10. It's also very impressive in the instance that several months, 2 or all 3 versions have been in the top 10. Can't wait to see what happens next to replace those 3 skus. 

Other games we are saying goodbye to are Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 (which was only recently announced but still did well), Doom Eternal (the long awaited Switch version), and Dragon Quest XI Definitive (which lets face it, considering how many times I have thought this game was done for the Most Wanted, it seems to make its way back!) As far as new games this month, the titles to watch are Mass Effect Collection, Neo: The World Ends With You 2, and Guilty Gear -Strive- (which was the highest debut of the 3 titles list. Otherwise, Zelda still hangs on to the top spot but there has been a lot of movement beneath it.

As far as combined platforms chart goes, Cyberpunk sits atop of the chart for 1 last time. Will The Legend of Zelda pretty much just dominate this category too or will a new multiplatform title step in to keep the Hyrule hero at bay?

The titles with release dates are looking a bit dreary. It took 35 titles for me to find 10 that had release dates. Hopefully the Game Awards and other announcements will happen this month for release dates. Since we know that Halo Infinite and Kena: Bridge of Spirits were both initially going to release near launch, we could probably expect to see those titles hit this list with any luck.
