"Wait, I don't play for this team"

There’s not an ounce of Manchester United in EA Sports' soccer simulation FIFA 14 – after all, the multiformat release actually seems capable of stringing a couple of good results together. Yet again, the footy favourite has dribbled to the top of the UK sales charts, mocking the competition like a freshly converted Arsenal supporter for an eighth consecutive week.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag rounded out the top four, while LEGO Marvel Super Heroes soared up a place into fifth. PlayStation 4 exclusive Killzone: Shadow Fall also fired up the charts on the back of more hardware bundles, finishing up in a respectable sixth. Need for Speed: Rivals, Grand Theft Auto V, and the discounted Aliens: Colonial Marines fleshed out the top ten.

As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. Are you shocked by the continued popularity of the beautiful game? Are you desperate for some new releases to shake things up somewhat? Post your analysis of Britain’s best sellers in the comments section below.
