Forums - Gaming Discussion - Most Wanted January 2021 Voting Thread

So I'm leaving this at a top 25 for the time being. The totals for the points are listed in the next post. The Legend of Zelda managed to make over double the total points of the 2nd and 3rd slots for the month. Nintendo made a very strong comeback this month after having a top 10 with a lot of Playstation content this previous month. We'll see what happens for February's Most Wanted but for now, here is the top 25!

24 25 Fable Xbox 5 2
25 37 Gran Turismo 7 Playstation 5 1

Here is the combined chart. Without Cyberpunk 2077, nothing is able to really match Legend of Zelda. There is some shifting in the the rest of the chart thanks to PC releases. Resident Evil VIIlage makes the biggest move from the highest sku at 13 to number 4 overall. Final Fantasy XVI knocks Monster Hunter out of second. Hogwart's Legacy and Persona 5 Scramble also make a leap into the top 10 when you combine multiple platforms.  

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 52 12
Final Fantasy XVI 27 8
Monster Hunter Rise 26 7
Resident Evil: Village 23 6

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."
