Nintendo hasn’t given up on a next-gen console, but it still tops the charts at the top of Xbox and Sony.

Amazon regularly maintains a list of its best-selling items broken down into categories throughout the year. One list in particular that is catching people’s attention is the top-selling video game-focused list, and like 2020, Nintendo has once again dominated.

In 2020, Nintendo managed to secure eight of the 10 spots on the list, with Animal crossing: new horizons take the first place with the other places going to the PS4 versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part II.

1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (physics)

2. The stars of Super Mario 3D

3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

5. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (digital)

6. Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4)

7. Ring-shaped adventure

8. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

9. The Last of Us Part II

10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

2021 was no different with Nintendo dominating again thanks to games Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Metroid Dread, and more. The list consisted of 20 games and saw Nintendo own 19 slots, Sony taking one with NBA 2K22 on PS4.

Take a look at the full list below:

  1. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
  2. Just Dance 2022 (Nintendo Switch)
  3. Animal crossing: new horizons
  4. Shiny Diamond Pokémon
  5. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
  6. Mario Party Superstars
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  10. Terror Metroid
  11. Pokemon shiny pearl
  12. Super Mario Odyssey
  13. New Pokémon Snap
  14. Minecraft (Nintendo Switch)
  15. Just Dance 2021 (Nintendo Switch)
  16. Luigi’s Mansion 3
  17. Super mario party
  18. Carnival Games (Nintendo Switch)
  19. Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
  20. NBA 2K22 (PS4)

It will be interesting to see if Nintendo can maintain that dominance until 2022, with Sony and Microsoft gearing up to ditch a slew of new games. The global chip shortage is affecting Nintendo Switch sales, but that doesn’t stop current hybrid console owners from spending money on these popular titles.
