The PlayStation Blog likes to share a monthly roundup of the best-selling titles on the PS Store, and now it has gathered all of that information together for a post detailing the overall best-selling games on the digital storefront for 2021. The lists are broken down into specific regions (US/Canada and Europe), but no matter which one you look at in terms of PS5 titles, it's the same result across the board: sports games reign supreme. NBA 2K22 was the best-selling PS5 game on the PS Store across the US and Canada, while FIFA 22 holds that accolade for Europe.
Both regions have the same game in second place, though: Call of Duty: Vanguard. In third for Europe is, funnily enough, FIFA 21, while it's Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the US and Canada. One surprise inclusion is Among Us, which sits sixth in Europe. That's a very impressive result considering the game only launched in December.

Onto PS4 games and we're sure you'll be delighted to learn Grand Theft Auto V was the best-selling last-gen title on the PS Store for 2021 across the US and Canada. In Europe, meanwhile, it's FIFA 22 once again. Across both territories, though, it's the same usual big hitters: Call of Duty, sports games, and Minecraft.

The blog post also documents the best-selling PSVR games of 2021, and the top three are exactly the same across both regions. Beat Saber sold the most amount of digital copies last year on the PS Store, with Job Simulator and Superhot VR in second and third respectively. Finally, Fortnite was the most downloaded free-to-play game of 2021, with Rocket League and Call of Duty: Warzone not far behind it. You can check out a full list of the results through the link.
