-High quality free to play games are doing very well .... obvious, but makes me wonder what else we may see from game developers 

Around the Network

Not bad for the Messenger, considering it released quite late in August.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

The legend of Zelda is a true legend. Rockin' even in terms of download sales it seems

Was Zelda on sale? Seems odd that it would be so high up this late.

Zelda, one year and a half after release.

Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

Around the Network

Octopath Traveler was 9th on the European Eshop in the monthly ranks. Still doing well here with the 13th place I see.

Also, welcome back Xenoblade 2 !

Not surprised that Fortnite is #1. Really am suprised that Zelda is so much higher than both Mario Kart and Mario Odyssey. Go Link!

Rocket League is a 3 year old game.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
