It’s the start of the new year, which means we’re still figuring out how to go back to eating things that aren’t Quality Street or Twiglets. While we’ll certainly get there eventually, the indulgent end-of-year holidays are always a nice treat, and it seems God of War Ragnarok had reason to celebrate too. The UK’s final physical chart of 2022 saw Sony’s game reclaim number one. Almost all copies sold were on PS5, so we suspect console bundles will be a big reason for the bump.
It knocks FIFA 23 back into second, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 now in fourth place. Save for Sonic Frontiers in 10th, down from seventh, the remainder of the top 10 is very Nintendo-flavoured, as per usual. There are several exciting releases heading to PS5 and PS4 this month, though, and we reckon they’ll shake things up nicely. Here’s the latest top 10 in full.
