Famitsu Ranked the Top 50 Best-Selling Games for the First Half of 2019
By Kasaix • 4 weeks ago • 9 comments


Famitsu, the seasoned videogame website, pulled together the sales of the top 50 best-selling games for the first half of 2019, and these numbers may not surprise you whatsoever. Kingdom Hearts III is at the top place, the game we've all been waiting for since forever, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Breath of the Wild is at 16th, despite coming out in 2017. You can take a look at the article HERE, but bear in mind that it is all in Japanese. The list is below, with the title, the sales numbers beside it, and below is the company and release date. I'm curious what you fine people think. Do you agree with the list? Should a game be higher or lower ranked? Or is there a game you like missing from the list? Sound off in the comments blow.
