Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 claimed the final video game No.1 of 2012, displacing Christmas No.1 Black Ops 2 from the top of the chart.

Black Ops actually dropped to No.3, with EA's FIFA 13 - also benefiting from some retailer price reductions - able to jump up to No.2. The football title achieved its highest weekly sales outside of its opening three weeks in the chart.

Hitman: Absolution slides to No.4, NFS Most Wanted claimed fifth spot, Just Dance 4 is at No.6, Halo 4 takes seventh and Assassin's Creed 3 slips one place to No.8.

LEGO The Lords of the Rings holds at No.9 and Forza Horizon storms up the chart from No.21 to No.10.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

With nothing new in stores this week – we have to wait until Anarchy Reigns hits stores on January 11 for the first of 2013's new titles – expect the chart to remain much the same, with the biggest climbers being those on offer at retailers.
