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.

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?

I don't follow NPD that much anymore (the lack of accurate data makes it less interesting), but UK does the same as axum with this feature: first they list the individual results and then they also have a table where they combine all the votes/sales.

In any case, axum has already said that he's thinking on ways to improve the presentation.

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. 

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

Not quite sure about what to do yet. This all started out a bit barebones and I feel like I've finally gotten most of the features the way I want them. As for next month, I am thinking of just changing the font color for titles that will be releasing the following month just so users can have an easy way to see what titles are leaving. I think I'm done tweaking the color for the initial charts though so I can move on to working on other things. I contemplated adding in release dates for titles but I think the only title in the top 10 that has a release date officially is Ni No Kuni II. So I opted for looking into other things I can do. xD 

If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. :)

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.

Meant to quote you too in my previous statement. If you have any suggestions of how to make the middle part stand out a little, I am all ears.

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.

Thank you! I try to make sure everything is upfront as possible :)

Changing the font colour (making them black again for example) could work as they would stand out above the rest. Maybe even putting them in italics?

I understand not putting the release dates because it would be a mess and half the list would have "TBA" in that place. And from the other half, most of them would get delays that would complicate it even more.

As for suggestions, mine would go for the single and combined lists, and it would imply making a third post. Because let's face it, the first post has too much info, so it would be interesting to split it in two posts. About how to split it, I can think of two ways:

1) Keep the individual list and the table with the total votes & points for each platform in the first post, and move the combined and franchise tables to the second one to let them shine. Or

2) Keep the current top 25 individual titles and the combined & franchise tables in the first post, and move the complete individual list plus the total points and votes table to the second one.

One thing is for sure, you'll need to add some colour to the combined table, to differentiate the exclusives from the multiplatform titles.

I don't think there's actually been any news since the announcement.... but they haven't announced that it's cancelled yet so no reason to assume it isn't still a thing



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

That's not a bad idea. So I should go for having 3 posts total. I think I like the first one more and I will find a way to add a bit of color between exclusives and multiplats. I could do one of two things in that case. I could just do a general color for the multiplatform titles Or I could just make a note underneath the title with the platforms in color coded boxes? 



Nice that KH3 and DQXI did so well.

One of the character artists recently posted that the game is not in development hell....which is the latest news that we have. xD Maybe some time in the next couple of months we will get some insight into it. xD

I'm certain that both will get an even bigger boost when we have release dates for them (well for the non-japanese release date of DQXI).
