That's pretty much due to the format of the voting where multiplats are split up along with people in general tend to vote very much in favour of exclusives of their favourite platforms in lists like this.

Combining Red Dead 2 Redemption would take it to join 2nd, or Dragon Quest XI from 12th > 6th or Kingdom Hearts 3 would move from 13th > 3rd as a few examples. I do think if you just voted for multiplats without having to specify a platform would make the lists a lot more interesting and more representative of most wanted games in general.

That format isn't exclusive to this feature. When looking at sales figures from NPD, UK or Japan, all games are listed individually even if there are two or three versions of it.

This is why I include the 2nd list in my OP to be honest. I think the majority of readers prefer the individual breakdown but I want to show the overall rankings when you combine platforms too. I do think that the overall rankings need to be spruced up so that it's not so barebones. That's one of my goals to work on with this year's most wanted.

Yea it would be great to see the overall rankings spruced up a little :) I'm one of the guys who generally just looks at the top 10 on the individual list and then scrolls past the rest to view the overall combined list and platform breakdowns but I would have a guess that a lot do it the opposite of viewing the individual lists then scroll to the next post about platform breakdown and the overall rankings can get a little hidden in between the other sections.

Interesting. Do you know how you'll do it?

This is nice factual work. I like a system that takes true votes and takes those numbers into an actual true representation of the people that doesn't lie. I think all media polls are out to be biased and have an agenda. At least with gaming we have a strong representation of the facts. Fun stuff too.



There is something highly amusing about the first xbox game being KH3.

Only if you look at the individual formats. UK charts have a combined formats as well which is the only one I really look at since it's more accurate. Don't pay much attention to NPD but don't they usually use combined formats too and then show which version sold best etc rather than placing each invidual SKU on the chart?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
