UK Charts 22/09/18 – Spider-Man Keeps On Swinging At The Top

Can't keep a good spider down.

There’s no change at the top of the UK charts this week, as Spider-Man stays in first and Shadow of the Tomb Raider in second, while the rest of the top 20 basically just shuffle up and down a bit.

To be honest, it’s not a terribly exciting week, with no major contenders last week, but Spider-Man’s popularity means that it’s closing in on Far Cry 5 to be the best selling retail game of the year. But chances are it won’t make it in time, because FIFA 19 is out on Friday and (as always) is set to dominate the competition.

Here’s the top 19, which is entirely MrYd’s fault:

LW TW Title
1 1 MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN
2 2 SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER
4 3 CRASH BANDICOOT N.SANE TRILOGY
3 4 NBA 2K19
5 5 MARIO KART 8 DELUXE
6 6 GRAND THEFT AUTO V
10 7 SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY
7 8 F1 2018
11 9 PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
12 10 SONIC MANIA PLUS
9 11 LEGO THE INCREDIBLES
16 12 DISHONORED: DEATH OF THE OUTSIDER
31 13 RESIDENT EVIL 7: BIOHAZARD
14 14 MINECRAFT
18 15 CALL OF DUTY: WWII
15 16 THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD
13 17 LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES 2
20 18 MINECRAFT: XBOX EDITION
22 19 GOD OF WAR

    Why when there’s a top 40 do you only copy and paste the top 19? And then claim it’s the top 20 when it’s clearly only 19. (Until you squeeze the R6 Seige in to make me look silly, of course)

    I’m impressed Firewall is still at 33. And Playstation VR Worlds is at 26, presumably due to being bundled with headsets. Firewall is still getting fresh new victims every day. (You can tell who they are, because they’re the ones running around looking confused by the beeping noise and then trying to shoot the laptop to see if that works).

    And why is GTA5 still there? (Someone has to say that every week, don’t they?)

        You know, most people would just go and put the number 20 game in and pretend it never happened. But no, you went and made it a top 19 and blamed me. A thing that I’ve never seen before. (A top 19, not people blaming me. That happens all the time. Sometimes when things are actually my fault)

        I’m mildly impressed. Which is as impressed as I can be on a Monday when I’ve got a headache.

        It was ever-so-slightly easier. :P

        Does that mean it took 3 seconds to do instead of maybe 5 or 6 seconds the other way?

        That sounds like a worthwhile time saving.

        If you spent at least 30 seconds deciding which way was quicker and would save you 2 or 3 seconds, then I think I want to marry you.

        And for once, I’m not being sarcastic. That really is an excellent use of time.

    Mega happy about that! Spider-Man is a magnificent game so I am really glad its holding out. Caught up with some old friends for a few beers whilst watching the AJ fight, none of them love comics and everything that surrounds them as much as I do, but they all cannot stop playing Spider-Man. My brain felt huge explaining everything to them with the whats, whys and wheres.

    Ace!!

      Spider-man is amazing and well deserved. I’m in the same boat as you explaining a lot of the movie’s with friend’s. Apart from my older brother no one i know collect’s the comic’s and know any of the history. It always feel’s good going in and telling them all about the character’s.
      Only the other day my wife was saying how can you spend £5.99 on a Batman comic and now on Ebay i finally showed her the payoff who knew Batman’s junk could fetch a pretty good payday lol.

    Bollocks about TR; I was hoping it would crash, so we could return to Tomb Raiding as in 2007 and 2008. Silly UK customers – hopefully the rest of the world doesn’t make the same mistake.

      I’ve played every tomb raider and this has as much puzzling and the minimal combat as the older games. So quit being a jabroni and go buy it. It’s fantastic. Really, just buy it.

        Stop defending her; back then she was like Indiana Jones, now she is like Rambo – NOT the same!
