Aww yes, sports games and shooters and yearly franchises played out to death. A lot of people are probably going to be upset about this list, and it puts a smile on my face.

What a terrible list with a few exceptions.

Holy crap.

Edit: I was about to post the exact Simpsons picture. That scene doesn't make much sense with the german dub though :p

Dragon Age first appears at 57. That series has to be fucked.

What a terrible list with a few exceptions.

Holy crap.

This is what happens when video games become basically mainstream. Congratulations we did it.

I'm actually surprised by the DKCTF numbers. More than SM3DW, Mario Party 3DS and Hyrule Warriors which I would've thought sold more than that. Maybe it did somewhat okay after all, at least in Europe (and over time).

I'm surprised Destiny didn't chart higher, mediocre word of mouth and reviews really must have hurt its performance during the holiday season.

Xbox on 6 games all show up in the bottom half, I expected domination but not on this level.

I don't have a link but I remember reading that Germany is now No. 2 country (and growing) in Europe for video game sales/revenue, followed by France. The two major EU countries the Xbox One isn't doing well in.

DKC and Yoshi's Island (#51!) benefit a lot from a big fanbase going back to the SNES days in Germany. It's always been like that, iirc.

Yes, of course Farming Simulator is outselling most console games. I'll take this chart as an accurate and proud representation of German tastes.

I hate to live in this country... shit taste everywhere.

I wonder what happens if the put all those multiplatform sales together. (GTA5 PS4 + GTA5 Xbone, Fifa15 PS3+PS4 etc)

I actually can't believe two of those simulator games made the top 100. :lol

RIP XB1

While these are an interesting gauge of the domestic retail market, I'd love to see Amazon and Steam digital numbers added to these.

No huge surprises aside from Tomodachi Life which did way, way better than I would've expected. Wii U software sales are a bit disappointing, but at least Smash will definitely sell a lot this year too and it's userbase is really limited.
