With 2018 officially behind us, Amazon has revealed its 100 best-selling video game items of the past year. As usual, the list encompasses all of the gaming-related products the online retailer sold in 2018, from peripherals and accessories to gift cards and subscriptions, but the most popular game item in any category was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Nintendo’s new mascot brawler was both Amazon’s best-selling video game and the retailer’s overall best-selling game product in 2018-a distinction that is all the more impressive considering the title launched less than a month ago. The fighting game has been a major commercial success for Nintendo, setting new sales records for the series around the world shortly after its release. GameSpot also selected it as one of our 10 best video games of 2018.
The remainder of the top 10 games list is almost evenly divided between Switch and PS4 titles. The PS4 version of Rockstar’s critically acclaimed open-world western, Red Dead Redemption 2, was Amazon’s second-best-selling game of 2018, while Super Mario Party rounded out the top three. Two of 2018’s biggest PS4 exclusives, Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War, were No. 4 and No. 9, respectively, while Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and the PS4 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 were No. 7 and No. 8.
Some of 2017’s biggest Switch exclusives also reappeared on 2018’s best-sellers list. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey were Amazon’s No. 5 and 6 best-selling games of the past year, respectively, while the Switch launch game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild closed out the top 10.
The list of overall game products was dominated by gift cards and accessories. You can see Amazon’s top 10 best-selling games below. The complete list of the retailer’s 100 best-selling game products can be found here.
