NieR: Automata definitely benefited from the deep discount offered by Square Enix to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of Yoko Taro’s critically acclaimed action JRPG.

It prevented Monster Hunter World to shoot back to the top after one week in which it was beaten by Metal Gear Survive.  Konami’s attempt to keep the Metal Gear series active is still holding rather well itself dropping only to third place.

Girls Und Panzer Dream Tank Match also did well, losing only one position, from third to fourth.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
