Forums - Sales Discussion - Most Wanted November (Voting Is Now Closed)

As usual, Thank you for your all of your votes, which make this thread possible! With Metroid Dread released, Can Zelda win back the top spot for the month or will another game leapfrog it to steal the number one spot? How will Forza Horizon 5 fare during its last month on the Most Wanted List? 

First off, the single SKU chart. This breaks down each game and platform individually. While The Legend of Zelda was looking forward to an easy reclamation of the top spot, Shin Megami Tensei V manages to swoop in on its final month to claim victory. Kirby Makes his top 10 debut with The Forgotten Land, and a slue of other titles push Forza Horizon down to the bottom of the top 10.

Combined Platforms:

So while there isn't really any changes in the top 3 for the combined platforms, Halo jumps into the 4 spot and Elden Ring jumps into the top 10. The other big movement was from Starfield, which jumps from 21 to 11. And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which jumps from the 30s into the 20s.

Games With Release Dates: 

So we are at the point in the year, where most games with release dates have already come out or have an ominous delay to them to a "Spring" or general "2022" release date. Some games from next year do have release dates, and those will be rewarded in this list of the top 10 games with release dates (until they may possibly suffer from another delay). Admittedly, the top 10 isn't as bad as it has been in the past (there are a few months where the top 10 had a few games that literally just had 3 points...) it's still that lull of the year. It feels like Microsoft has the most concrete lineup with release dates out of the rest of the developers. They have 3 titles (Forza, Halo, and Starfield), while Square Enix has 2 (Final Fantasy and Triangle Strategy), and everybody else is trailing with 1 title (Respectively Atlus, Namco Bandai, Playstation, Nintendo, and EA).  

1 Shin Megami Tensei V November 12th
2 Halo Infinite December 8th
3 Elden Ring January 21st
4 Forza Horizon 5 November 9th
5 Triangle Strategy March 4th
6 Starfield November 11, 2022
7 Horizon: Forbidden West February 18th
8 Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker November 23rd
9 Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl November 19th
10 Battlefield 2042 November 19th

And that about wraps up the main portion of Novembers Most Wanted. The new voting thread is over here
