Days Gone holds No.1 in this week’s UK games chart

Days Gone remains at the top of the UK video games chart in another quiet week.

Days Gone remains at the top of the UK video games chart in another quiet week.

There’s very little to report from the latest UK video games chart from Ukie and GfK, with the entire top six as they were a week ago.

The chart – which tracks the sales of physical retail games in the UK – sees PlayStation 4 exclusive, Days Gone, remain at No.1 for a third week. It’s an impressive performance for a title that is evidently finding fans despite its cool critical reception.

Elsewhere, EA’s Anthem slips out of the Top Ten again, falling to No.14, and the PlayStation edition of Minecraft leaps from No.29 to No.16.

The only brand new entry in the entire Top 40 is the Nintendo Switch port of Saints Row: The Third, which lands at a creditable No.15.


It’s also worth acknowledging the quiet success of Dynamic Pixels’ stealth horror game, Hello Neighbour, which resides at No.36. The game has been ever-present in the lower reaches of the chart since release, and has become a firm favourite on YouTube.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
