Touch the sky(rim): Elder Scrolls V tops UK charts12 Dec 2011
A slow week for new releases means little change in the overall UK chart line-up, but there has been a change at the top. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been dethroned by Bethesda’s gigantic fantasy jaunt, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which has popped up from fifth place to take the summit.
We called it , so it’s no huge surprise that fans of Morrowind, Oblivion and RPGs in general are picking it up.
Elsewhere, there’s a triplicate of Mario action with Mario Kart 7, Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games and Super Mario 3D Land sitting pretty between 10th and 12th place.
There are no brand new entries, but ABBA: You Can Dance and Sonic Generations have sneaked into the top 20 from lower positions. ABBA aren’t the only dancers around though, with Just Dance 3 making a festive bid to be number one at Christmas (up another place from last week to sit in third place).
