Since its launch, game publishing behemoth Electronic Arts has been evolving into more advanced systems. Currently, the FIFA 22 publisher has snagged the UK’s number one spot this year, according to the data from GfK Chart-Track. Game Industry data miner @Christopher Dring shared a post on Twitter it reads 

“Courtesy of those fine folks over @gfk, here is the updated list of all the UK video game Christmas No.1s since 1984” 

The report claims that Electronic Arts FIFA 22 has become the number one game in 2021, followed by Among Us and Call of Duty: Vanguard. Notably, EA’s football game FIFA handed out a plethora of success to Electronic Arts over the years; FIFA has become the inevitable game in the gaming realm where people buy FIFA verily even without materializing it for purchase.  Albeit the popular publication Activision is also up there in the list with the eminent Call of Duty, FIFA 22 refused to be beaten and crowned for Christmas number one spot in the UK. At the same time, the honor was grabbed by Ubisoft’s masterpiece Assassin’s Creed Valhalla the previous year. 

It is worth mentioning that the previous year was only the third time in fifteen years that the Christmas number one position wasn’t obtained by the behemoth FIFA, alongside the Red Dead Redemption 2 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim occupied the number one place in 2018 and 2011.

Of course, both the games are highly eligible to claim the spot, especially Red read redemption 2; it was meticulously designed with scaled-down attention to every single thing, peculiarly Rockstar studio deserved to be in a better place for having creators who could deliver the attributes of animals in Red Dead Redemption two in a convincing demeanor.

On the other hand, FIFA 22, not particular about any single version but an iteration of the game carried out significant dissimilarity since FIFA 17; afterward, every game’s sequel seems to possess the same traditional thing. Still, in the tag of next-generation, quite an indistinguishable way of approach FIFA followed for past few years, the beautiful game which has millions of fans across the globe has to be appreciated with a much better quantity of essence.

As an aside, we are not pointing FIFA is not a game people looking for, contrastingly we are just imitating the voice of gamers who are contemplating prolonging for a more advanced feature. With FIFA out of the way,  Rockstar‘s heavily procrastinated  Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was spotted at No.6 following its PlayStation and Xbox release, with the Switch version now coming in 2022.
