The NPD Group which tracks software and hardware sales in the United States of America has published the most played games in the first quarter of 2022. A number of games were originally released a fairly long time ago such as The Sims 4 and Grand Theft Auto V. Nintendo will be pleased to see that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has made the list despite not receiving substantial updates this year. The majority of games which adorn the list are multiplayer games as you would expect such as Fortnite and Call of Duty: Vanguard.

  1. You know those knock off movies they make, mostly ripping off pixar movies, to trick poor parents and grandparents buying something for their kids?

    Every once in awhile I get the idea for a title for one of a video game, and every time I see its name I always want to make a knock off titled

    “Amongst Us”

  2. I started playing The Sims 4, then i realized how much the dlc combined cost is for all the additional content. It’s like $440 or something unless you get it discounted or in a bundle. Im sure someone can correct me with the exact dollar amount of the combined price of all the additional content. Just saying it’s alot.

    1. Just looked on Steam: getting all the expansion, stuff, and kit DLC for The Sims 4 costs a total of £806.49.
      It’s completely ridiculous, it’s really no wonder how EA got it’s awful reputation in the gaming industry.

  3. Didn’t Arceus sell 6M in one week? And 13M in two months? By now it’s probably on its way to break 20M. Did people buy a copy but didn’t play it? I find it weird not to be featured in this list.
