And the Number One Video Game of 2011 is...

Yes, it's official, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the best-selling game of 2011. The open world RPG has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and has proven to be extremely popular this Christmas.

Skyrim also successfully beat the previous favourite to win, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which ended up in a respectable third place. The full Top 20 games chart is as follows:

  It is very unusual for a game to knock an EA title off of the Christmas number one spot. In fact, Electronic Arts have successfully secured the number one spot for the last eight years, so Skyrim not only makes a refreshing change, but its victory could also mark an important change in the kinds of game we can expect to be successful in 2012.
