Amazon Post Lists of Best Selling Physical and Downloadable Games of 2011

It's been a long time since Amazon simply sold books, and these days you can get everything from diapers in bulk to videogames for all platforms through the online shopping site. And lest anyone think game sales are merely an afterthought for Amazon, it's become quite the booming business, both for physical and digital downloads. So what were the best selling titles of 2011 on Amazon?

That depends on the distribution method. In terms of physical disc sales, it breaks down like this:
  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  2. Just Dance 3
  3. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  4. Battlefield 3
  5. Batman: Arkham City
  6. Madden NFL 12
  7. Portal 2
  8. Just Dance 2
  9. Gears of Wars 3
  10. FIFA Soccer 12

Not a lot of surprises there, except for the fact that gamers seem to really like to dance, which would explain why Just Dance 2 and 3 both made the Top 10 list. As for digital downloads, it shakes out a bit differently:

  1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  2. Battlefield 3
  3. The Sims 3
  4. Battlefield Bad Company 2
  5. Sid Meier's Civilization V
  6. Dead Island
  7. Total War: Shogun 2
  8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  9. Crysis 2
  10. Dragon Age 2

It's kind of interesting that Deus Ex: Human Revolution topped the digital download sales list, while MW3 fell all the way to No. 8.

What game(s) are you playing these days?
