Why the heck does GOW have more votes than Monster Hunter?



"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."

Reading the poll made me realize how lackluster this year has been for games. (for me at least)

Yup there's mostly PS and Nintendo Exclusives there which is why Xbox fans have been very critical of Microsoft lately.

No, even while having a PS4 this year has still been bleh. 



Honestly, God of War, Monster Hunter World, and even Kirby to a degree. Kirby managed to hit 1 million in a really fast amount of time. God of War is the fastest selling 1st party game (ever? or in a really long time. Sorry. I haven't been around as much as usual so I don't remember the exact claim) and Monster Hunter World managed to hit 10 million on PS4/XB1 alone within 6 months.

So far Monster Hunter world and GoW. Both are sold insane amounts and are already the best selling in their franchises despite being just months old.

I wouldn't say that. God of War 3 likely sold 7 million plus on PS3 and another 1 to 2 million on PS4. God of War will sell more but isn't there.
