Since Dead Island, the UK has not seen a game not destined to hit the top of the gaming charts to hit the top. But now, Kingdoms of Amulur: Reckoning has arrived. The past week it has been out, available to the world on systems PS3, XBOX360 and PC, it has topped the charts.
A couple of fun facts, a brand new RPG, that is not from a series (Such as Elder Scrolls: Skyrim), has not topped the charts in gaming for over 10 years. In the year 2000, Pokemon, the original game, made top of the UK charts, and since there has not been any RPG’s to be the number one game.
However, that doesn’t mean games have not come close. Final Fantasy XIII-2 just missed by debuting at second place, and The Darkness 2 which came out this past month debuted at a bronze medal placing of 3rd.
