Final Fantasy XV Is the Most Wanted Game this Holiday Season According to GameStop Survey

on December 1, 2016 5:43 PM

The Holiday Season isn’t just the time in which people try to spend as much (or as little, depending on the point of view) time as possible with their families, but also the period in which everyone goes on a frenzy of buying games for their loved ones, and for themselves.

GameStop often polls its Power-Up Rewards members for data, and this time around they asked them which game they want for the Holidays. You can read the results, sent in via press release, just below.

  1. Final Fantasy XV
  2. Battlefield 1
  3. Pokémon Sun and Moon
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  5. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

Other titles that fared well on the survey are Madden NFL 17, Gears of War 4, Titanfall 2, and Watch Dogs 2.

Perhaps the domination of Final Fantasy XV shouldn’t be too surprising, considering that it shipped five million copies on its first day on the shelves, becoming the fastest-selling Final Fantasy game ever (even if the simultaneous worldwide release certainly helped there).

Definitely interesting is seeing Battlefield 1 topping Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.  And yes, a remaster of a five years-old game made the top-five as well, beating much newer entries.

Of course the presence in the list of Pokémon is probably as surprising as the fact that the sun will rise tomorrow, and maybe the most interesting part of it is that it isn’t higher in the list.

So, what’s your most wanted game for the Holidays? Feel free to let us know just below.

And yes, Prompto is a dork, but we all knew that already.
