Well, The Legend of Zelda seemed like it would keep the top spot until Nintendo's E3 presentation. It was neck and neck up until the end, but the last vote gave it the boost to claim the top spot. It also has the highest debut by far (with the next closest being Death's Door at number 23. Shin Megami Tensei V rounds out the top 3. With the hole left in the chart from Ratchet and Clank: Rif Apart releasing, God of War: Ragnarok, Horizon: Forbidden West, and Kena: Bridge of Spirits all jump into the top 10. Xbox also had a good showing as well with Halo Infinite jumping back into the top 5 and Psychonauts 2 making its top 10 debut.

"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."
