NBA 2K20

NBA 2K20 debuts at No.1 in the latest UK video games chart from Ukie and GFK.

2K’s NBA 2K20 has made history by becoming the first basketball game to top the UK video games chart, according to chart publisher, Ukie. The game replaces Nintendo Switch exclusive, Astral Chain, which drops out of the top ten to No. 11.

Last week’s No.2, THQ Nordic’s Wreckfest, also falls down the chart, landing at No.10. There’s better news for Supermassive’s The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan which holds steady at No.3. Spyro Reignited Trilogy returns to the chart at No.2 following the release of the game on Nintendo Switch.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
