FIFA 12 takes top honours in the final All Format UK Gaming Chart of 2012 outselling the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim

EA Sports' formidable football franchise ended the year with a bang as FIFA 12 tops the final UK All Format Gaming Chart of 2011 ahead of FPS rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Whilst Skyrim managed to take the official Christmas number one sport away from Activision’s hugely successful MW3 release FIFA 12 prevailed in the end with the final gaming chart of 2011 seeing the football sim take top honours.

Behind FIFA 12 and second placed COD: Modern Warfare 3 family friendly Just Dance 3 rounded off the podium positions ahead of Battlefield 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations in spots four and five respectively.

Whilst THQ’s Saints Row: The Third could only manage sixth spot EA’s Need for Speed: The Run managed to secure seventh. The gaming chart’s end of year top 10 was completed by Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Mario and Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games and Star Wars: The Old Republic in positions eight through to ten.
