MCV has compiled a list of the UK's top 10 best-selling games in the first half of 2010, revealing Ubisoft's Just Dance as the year's biggest seller.

The Wii dancing game phenomenon has sold 940,358 units this year alone, not including sales in the latter part of 2009 - the game was released November 27, 2009.

Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption comes in at No.2 with an impressive 819,161 units, made even more impressive by its May 21 release date - approximately six weeks on sale compared to the full six months for just dance.

Surely underperforming is Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII, which charts at No.9 with only 339,996 units sold since its launch on March 9, 2010.

Top 10 video games - January-June 2010

1. Just Dance - 940.358
2. Red Dead Redemption - 819,161
3. Bad Company 2 - 590,580
4. Modern Warfare 2 - 540,761
5. Wii Fit Plus - 499,998
6. Wii Sports Resort - 439,920
7. 2010 FIFA World Cup - 396,858
8. Aliens vs Predator - 359,968
9. Final Fantasy XIII - 339,996
10. FIFA 10 - 318,719

Sorry to hear that Pb! Goes to show that the 'casual gaming' fad isn't wearing off like some predicted.

Well I asked my grandparents if they heard of Red Dead Redemption and got no reply.
















but it could just be because all of them are dead.

I do have a Wii and so do a billion other people, but that doesn't change the fact I've never heard of it.

But then maybe I'm just not so 'with it' these days with the kids and their 'motion control'.

If you asked someone with a Wii and an interest in dancing games they'd know :)

Needless to say that it's a fun game and had me in fits watching other people play it.

What the actually f*ck. When I get a Wii, I would only buy it pre owned.

I'm more surprised to see no DS games in the list at all. Pokemon, anyone?

I've honestly never heard of Just Dance and doubt if I asked someone what it was they'd know, but everyone knows what RDR and Modern Warfare 2 is and everyone has them.

Something seems wrong.

Yeah, unless it was released after the list was taken or was out late enough to only get the first few weeks sales.

Bit strange that Just Dance managed so much for a single format game over 3 massive multiformat games too?

No Mario Galaxy 2? The list must be broken.
