Here are the best selling video games of April 2021

The results were reported after a month-long delay, but I’m still shocked, appalled and gagged by the results. What kind of a world do we live in where New Pokémon Snap was only the THIRD best selling game? Sure, that’s only based on two days of sales, but I demand a recount! Hopefully when we get to the May statistics, the new pocket monster game as well as the Annihilation look-alike Returnal will be higher on the chart.

According to VentureBeat, these were the best selling video games of April 2021:

  1. MLB: The Show 21
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War
  3. New Pokémon Snap
  4. Outriders
  5. NieR: Replicant
  6. Mortal Kombat 11
  7. Monster Hunter: Rise
  8. Returnal
  9. It Takes Two
  10. Mario Kart 8

Did you buy any of these games in April? Is Outriders any good, because I have it on my queue.
