Well I guess Crash ain't never leaving UK charts' pole position

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is seriously making a mockery of the competition as Activicarious Visions' game ended up topping UK's all-formats chart for the seventh week running, even beating three newly launched games in top 10.

It's honestly getting to be a bit ridiculous, seeing as how N. Sane Trilogy launched on 29 June 2018 for Switch, PC and Xbox One and hasn't left first place in UK's charts since. It is the aforementioned games though that have been the main drivers behind Crash's latest success, seeing as how the PlayStation 4 version launched a full year before the non-PS-believers.

Just like last week , Lego The Incredibles remained firmly rooted to the second spot, which is living proof that the nag factor is real. That's not to say that this is the only reason why is popular though, but it sure didn't hurt either.

Additionally, we'd do well to understand that even though The Incredibles are really a joy to watch - they were never really considered a top tier animated superhero bunch, Disney or otherwise. Which makes Lego's success maybe even bigger than it may seem at a glance.

Yet another master-senpai of longevity, GTA V, has climbed up two spots and now sits in third place. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came in fourth, followed by Madden NFL 19 which seems to have performed way above expectations. Call of Duty: WWII and God of War remained unchanged from the week before, meaning they came in sixth and seventh.

The second new arrival to UK's top 10 chart is Overcooked 2, Team17's new and improved cooking simulator, sequel to 2016's Overcooked. Super Mario Odyssey dropped a single spot and now sits in ninth place.

Compulsion Games' Orwellian survival game We Happy Few debuted in the top 10 though, although they only managed to reach 10th place. Oh well, nothing that some Joy can't fix. You can check out UK's top 10 all-formats chart below.
