The year that was 2020 is final­ly over, but before this year offi­cial­ly start­ed, Ani­mal Cross­ing: New Hori­zons moved its way back into first place. It moved up from third from the weeks pri­or, over­tak­ing the pre­vi­ous num­ber one con­tender, FIFA 21.

EA’s year­ly FIFA title did­n’t go very far, land­ing sec­ond on the last day of 2020. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also moved up, cur­rent­ly hold­ing third. Assas­s­in’s Creed Val­hal­la dropped a cou­ple of spaces, from sec­ond to fourth. Just Dance 2021 fin­ish­es out the top five, com­ing up a cou­ple of places from its pre­vi­ous position. 

Nin­ten­do is doing real­ly well, with ten of the top 20 being games for the Nin­ten­do Switch. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is no longer breach­ing the top five, which is extreme­ly odd for a Call of Duty title. Cyber­punk 2077 has seen the biggest drop with­in the last three weeks. It went from num­ber one to eighth, and is now sit­ting in 15th.
