When numbers shows, it also shows how successful a game is commercially. Last week, Guerrilla Games’ open-world new IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn, has snatched 1st place of the UK Sales Chart last week. But that’s not it, ARMS, Nintendo’s own exclusive, catches up 2nd place in just a few days of its launch since June 16.

In March, Horizon: Zero Dawn had sold 2.6 million copies in two weeks after its release and was critically acclaimed across most of all the critics in the gaming industry. We have also scored a perfect 10 to Horizon: Zero Dawn back in February, you can read it here.

    With a few exceptions, all other games on that list has some sort of multiplayer, be it co-op or versus. Some may not like it, but multiplayer games really gets more attention. The list of E3 games most viewed on youtube has way more multiplayer games also

    • Hugo Azevedo

      Like Spider Man with over 17M views or Mario or God of War or Days Gone right?

      Lmao

      • Rafoca

        4 single player games (one of which is Mario, which happens to feature local co-op), six multiplayer games. And look who is on top 😘

        Point made

        • Hugo Azevedo

          That is single channel ONLY, Spider Man has over 17 million over different channels so your point is lost. Also lmao biggest game of the year aka Destiny 2 not there says alot about those views haha.

          • Hugo Azevedo
          • Rafoca

            “Biggest game of the year” is a multi-player game. Thanks for helping me with my argument, again.

            If you think single player only games are more popular than multiplayer games, in general, then you don’t know much anyway

          • Hugo Azevedo

            do u like my new pic now? Just removed the other one because had my GF there, but pussy is not a think you know yet little faggot. Go play your Xbox and suck Phil dick haha

          • mondaymurder23

            “but pussy is not a think you know yet little faggot” 404 ERROR English not found lol

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            WHO GIVES A SHIT?!? Really?
            SP, MP, Both HFC?
            IF your just an Xbert shooting your month off, then whatever.
            But if you honestly think single player is a bad thing I feel real sad for you.
            Your missing out on some of the greatest games ever made.
            Ok sure PS4 really doesn’t have a “Halo” game, but that’s what BF1, COD, Starwars BF, Overwatch Killzone Destiny, etc, etc fill in, and some do it to a much better extent than Halo does? One can argue no SP player on XB1 right, or even games but that would be silly.

          • Rafoca

            A lot of people care about multiplayer and coop. And Sony lacks on this department, while Xbox lacks on the single player front

            I, for one, don’t care about single player games anymore. I love coop, so

          • mondaymurder23

            “:WHO GIVES A SHIT?!? Really? ” you triggered one man lol Sony peasants

        • datdude

          Actually, mental midget, the only real differentiating factor is whether the games are being developed for a single platform or for multiple platforms. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that games that are coming to multiple consoles, and pc, will get more attention from a larger audience than games being developed for a single platform.

          Yikes…these poor things will do anything to convince themselves that they have some point or another, based on nothing at all. Typical.

          • Rafoca

            Wow. So defensive. So angry. I didn’t want to hurt your feelings

          • datdude

            If that’s all you’ve got to say after being shown your own ignorance, that speaks to precisely why you’re so ignorant. Good luck with that.

        • RabbitFly

          Interesting you should say that. You clearly do not understand the magic marketing of Star Wars. Number 1 ciritisism for Battlefront 1? that it was only multiplayer. it seemed a big majority of people that bought the game only wanted to play it as a single player game.

          • Rafoca

            I understand it the same way I understand Spider Man marketing, Mario and God of War. All very established known franchises.

            People complained Star Wars didn’t have a campaign, but the game sold a lot even without one.

          • RabbitFly

            Yes, because it was star wars. Star Wars have a precedent for selling extreme numbers despite quality or fan satisfaction. This goes for both movies and games, even toys. It is the biggest franchise in the world.

            You cannot compare star wars to Mario and God of War. Star Wars transcends gaming, it appeals to people that don’t usually play these types of games.

          • Rafoca

            I guess it’s fair comparing God of War and Mario, cause Mario has more than 100 games already and we know Mario since the 80’s. God of Wars started a long time ago and will always be a success no matter what. Even though Star Wars is on the movies as well, not all movies fans are fans of the game. My brother loves the movies, but couldn’t care less about Battlefront. Just an example.

            What I am trying to say is that all of these games, singleplayer or multiuplayer, are famous!! They will be a success no matter what.

            But in general, single player games sell less. It’s the truth, like we or not. There are very single-player titles these days that really sell like crazy. People alwas mention Elder Scrolls (even then they launched a MMO because they know its important), Witcher (CD projekt is now doing a multiplayer game). and now Horizon. But if we compare the ammount of multiplayer games that sold a lot to the single player games we know what will happen…

            I mean look at warframe! those guys are basically on business because of that game only, since 2013! How many single-player games live 4 years and still being profitable all thoese years?

          • RabbitFly

            Mario and God of war are both big in their own right. That doesn’t mean they have anything on Star Wars. Thats my main issue with your point. Star Wars is an anomaly. It has always been an anomaly. You cannot use it as proof that multiplayer games are more popular.

            Your brother is an anecdotal example and matters nothing. I am not saying that everyone that loves the movies loves the games. The point is simply that anything with the star wars label will garner alot of attention from people that only like it/buy it/want it because it is star wars, to a degree that you cannot build your statistical models around it. This has been shown again and again.

          • Rafoca

            You look a little passive aggressive towards me and I don’t see why. Not every discussion must end like this.

            Anyway, I understand your point, but what I said about multiplayer games are right, even if we erase Star Wars from the equation

          • RabbitFly

            Passive agressive??? I have no idea where you would get that from?

            If anyone has been acting passive aggressive in this thread.. well I am pretty sure it has been you. Not really towards me, but there are several typical examples in replies to other posts higher up.

            Anyways back to your point. It is true that games with multiplayer generally have longer legs. That doesn’t really mean that they are more popular though.

            Just to clarify I am not arguing that single player games are more popular. I am just saying that your method is lacking. An easy way to show this is I can use the very same statistics you are using to argue the opposite point.

            In the top 10 you posted there are actually 10 single player games. Yes it is true that several of those titles have multiplayer modes, but all of them have single player modes. See how that works?

          • Rafoca

            I give up. Be well, buddy!

          • RabbitFly

            So when presented with logic, you give up?

            I don’t know what kind of discussion you were after, but that seems kind of silly. Especially considering the banter you were willing to partake in earlier.

            Oh well. Have a good one.

  • mondaymurder23

    wow good job you starve your player base so much that they had no choice but to buy the game or what else would they play

    • Hugo Azevedo

      Man such Starve loser lmao fucking faggots these days haha

      • Rafoca

        Apart from nioh, what a great single player games list! So you pay psn to play alone? That’s nice.

        Again, seeing your picture makes me understand why you say what you say

        • Hugo Azevedo

          Lmao little faggot come see me face to face not behind a monitor with a picutre with a animal haha little loser.

          • mondaymurder23

            lol little fa-g plz who would want to see your ugly face that even a mother wouldnt love

        • xboxmaster

          Nioh is singleplayer too, and if you only play singleplayer games, why would you pay PS+? stop assuming things to make a point, you don’t know if he pays for PS+ or not, you can’t just start an argument just assuming that he does

          • Rafoca

            He does pay

            Also, nioh has coop and pvp

          • xboxmaster

            how do you know that he pays? and the pvp coop in nioh are extra features, Nioh is a singleplayer game, jus tlike the last of us is a singleplayer game, it has multyplayer, but it’s an extra feature, not the main attraction, the main attraction is the singleplayer

          • Rafoca

            Doesn’t matter. It has coop and pvp. It’s a multiplayer game then. Last time I checked Call of Duty wasn’t considered a single-player game just because it has a single-player campaign. It doesn’t matter the focus of the game. If it has some sort of online it shows how devs are aware people want to play together.

            Nioh allows for the whole game to be played in co-op, a little similar to dark souls

    • Ucouldntbemorewrong

      Tell me about it Halo Wars 2…and…and…

      • Rafoca

        Tell us about that amazing list… Almost all single player only games though. And even when they have coop they are clearly afterthought

      • datdude

        That poor critter calling itself mondayslurper is so jelly his balls have turned to mush….and since we already know he’s not playing Sony’s tremendous exclusives, his balls were only catching up to the mush his brains have been for his entire, sad, lonely life. Pity the fool. Or laugh. Or do both, as I am.

        • mondaymurder23

          “he’s not playing Sony’s tremendous exclusives” lol are those games worth my money ? lol no maybe if they dropped to 9.99$ or lower

          • datdude

            Whatever you need to tell yourself to help you get some sleep at night buddy….seems like you need it.

      • mondaymurder23

        lol yeah that and the other 10 thousand other games it’s funny you though i was a Xbox gamer lol i triggered a filthy PS gamer try again buddy

        • Ucouldntbemorewrong

          Wow the short bus, just emptied out.
