The best-selling games in the US in 2022

The best-selling games in the US in 2022

Top 10 across all platforms. What are the top 3?

We’re already halfway through January 2023 and time flies, but looking back to 2022 is so much fun. Thanks to the NPD Group, we now have a list of the best-selling games in the US from last year. We got another one recently at Daily Nintendo A roundtable on what we thought was the best game of 2022. The US list is not limited to Switch, but in general.

Do you think Switch games are lagging behind and inferior to PC or PlayStation games? Nothing could be further from the truth, as the Switch is firmly in the middle of the list with two Pokemon games: Pokemon Scarlet & Violet And Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Additionally, it’s important to note that Nintendo doesn’t share online sales. Otherwise the numbers would have been different.

Do you buy a lot of games online or more physically? Do you think the top 10 would have looked different if Nintendo had shared online purchases?
