Oh boy, ruffled some feathers did I?Oh look someone who is spreading false information again. I like how you ignored the fact that TLOU2 has still been in the top sales charts as recently as the November ones. THAT is why it is still among the best selling games of the year. Anthem dropped out of them entirely and never came back. Your statement about it's second week drop is based on the UK only where pretty much every game has a similar drop. Ghost of Tsushima also hasn't broken any record set by TLOU2. Your linked article is from November and is talking about Ghost's total sales. It didn't break the 4+ million in one week that TLOU2 set. All Ghost did was become the fastest selling new IP on PS4 for Sony which means it sold more than the 2 million that Horizon Zero Dawn did at launch. Expected given the bigger install base 3 years later. So yeah TLOU2 has done just fine in sales don't worry your stupid little head over it.
I didn't ignore the TLOU2 charting. TLOU2's monthly sales position is irrelevant to my post. I highlighted that a game can make the best selling games of the year list despite it not charting, if it has a strong opening week or two. This was in response to your post, which said "...it ended the year as one of the best selling games of 2020. It didn't do that based on the first week or two of sales alone...". In fact, it's entirely possible that the first two weeks alone guaranteed its position on the list. Learn to read.
The article I linked regarding the drop highlights that regions other than the UK are reporting similar drops for the TLOU2, and it also highlights that your statement "... where pretty much every game has a similar drop..." is also wrong. TLOU2 experienced an 80% drop in week-to-week sales, while Days Gone had a 35% drop, and God of War had a 60% drop. The article concludes with: "... With the divisive nature of The Last of Us 2, it is expected that the sales of the game will be dipping down further in the coming weeks"
You're correct about the fastest selling PS4 exclusive record, though. I mis-read and had thought GoT had broken that record, when in fact it had broken the fastest selling exclusive new IP on PS4 record. I'll be sure to read more carefully in the future.
As for you personal attack, you'd do better not to personify yourself through a title. TLOUII isn't anything particularly important - it's just a game. It amuses me that people - fans or detractors - are so invested in its success or failure on a personal level.
