Horizon Zero Dawn outsold Fifa ? Didn't see this coming. Rather impressive.

Only game in the list that is an exclusive and only on one platform. Makes the success even more impressive. Fantastic Job GG, can't wait to play the expansion this fall.

Multiplatform games are what 95% of gamers play. No exclusives are better than CoD, GTA and Fifa. Those are big free that a modern console must have.
