The market research institute GfK has analyzed the sales of computer and video games on the European market and identified the top sellers in the first half of 2019. GfK Entertainment took a close look at the physical sales figures across all platforms across Europe. The result is not surprising: the best-selling video games in Europe in the first half of 2019 are Fifa 19 and New Super Mario Bros.
Which video and computer games won the most across Europe in the first six months of 2019? The opinion research institute GfK gave a clear answer to this question after analyzing the cross-border sales data: In Europe, which is dominated by football, Fifa 19 from Electronic Arts is at the top. The sports game has made it to the top of the top seller list in ten countries. Then New Super Mario Bros follows, which can shine four times with a top placement. There are apparently a particularly large number of Mario fans in Austria, Germany, France and Switzerland.
Analyzed across platforms and across Europe
Both games are absolute top titles. While the soccer simulation kicks its way to the top of the half-year charts in the Benelux countries, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain and Sweden, the remastered version of the classic platformer was most popular in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland.
But the competition doesn't have to hide either. Despite its release around six years ago, GTA V is still one of the bestsellers across Europe - and so is Rockstars Red Dead Redemption 2 (here our Game test on the western epic) is represented several times among the three best-selling video games. Other winners include Days Gone, Minecraft and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
