F1 2021 in Pole Position, Runs Zelda Off the Road — UK Games Chart 26 July 2021

July 26, 2021
FEATURES

F1 2021 has reached the top spot in the UK games chart in its second week after release.



Notable Changes This Week

  • Newly released F1 2021 swapped positions with Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.


  • Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart teleported from 10th to 3rd.


  • Spider-Man: Miles Morales swung to 6th from 17th.


  • Marvel’s Avengers saw a surprising resurgence; went from 40th to 18th.




Trends

This week, we’ve seen Nintendo maintain top 20 chart positions, despite falling a number of places across the board. There have been two anomalies in the form of Marvel’s Avengers suddenly entering the charts and Fallen Order almost making it into the top 10, likely due to recent next-gen boxed version upgrades.

Starting with the Sega Mega Drive, I’ve been playing those video game things for what seems like an eternity. Anything with a good narrative is my passion, but you can also find me clicking the heads in FPS games, living a second life in a sim, or looking for those elusive objects in adventure games. I’m still trying to workout what happened in Metal Gear Solid.
