Mortal Kombat X is the best-selling game of 2015 so far

We’re half way through 2015 already

We’re now half-way through 2015. As time marches ever onward, quicker and quicker towards the screaming oblivion that is our graves, we shall hear that bell will soon ring and we will be taken into the void by the reaper, and our sins shall finally be shown before us.

But before that, the top ten best-selling super fun games from the first half of 2015 have been unveiled! Yay videogames!

Here is the list, according to Fortune:

  1. Mortal Kombat X
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. Battlefield Hardline
  4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  5. Minecraft
  6. Batman: Arkham Knight
  7. Dying Light
  8. NBA 2K15
  9. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  10. Super Smash Bros

There’s a couple of things to note here: firstly, this isn’t platform specific, it’s the total of copies sold on all platforms. Secondly, this is the bestselling games, not the best selling new releases of 2015. That’s why Minecraft, GTA V, Call of Duty, and Smash Bros are still on the list despite being released before 2015.

It’s a huge surprise to see Mortal Kombat X top the list, and it’s nice to see the excellent Dying Light and The Witcher 3 doing so well, but other than that’s it’s all pretty predictable. Latest releases in popular IPs and Minecraft.

So now we’re half way through the year, which game has been your game of the year so far?
