The tops are always a good way to know what is the trend of a market and the indicator that reveals which franchises are the most successful as far as video games are concerned.

Get in here right now.
The best-selling games of October
The always active Spanish Association of Video Games (AEVI) has been the one that has made public the data of the best-selling games in our country within the scope that they can control, which is that of traditional distribution, in physical stores, since when we talk about digital stores, both Sony and Microsoft or Nintendo (and Steam, Epic Games Store, etc.) are something more opaque and less friendly to offering official figures. So although the data is not precise, it does serve to offer us a clear image of what the market trend is, of what is really selling.
And the top 10 best-selling games for the month of October leaves no room for doubt because it’s as boring as it was in September and will be by the end of November. And it is that except for honorable exceptions, only established franchises appear that are repeated month after month until a new installment arrives and takes over from the previous one. Effectively, we are referring to FIFA shift (EA Sports FC from 2023), to call of duty on duty, to mario + whatever on duty and other names that almost always coincide with the exclusive ones on duty.
Here you have the top 10 best-selling games during the month of October 2022 in Spain:
- FIFA 23 (PS4)
- FIFA 23 (Nintendo Switch)
- Bayonetta 3 (Nintendo Switch)
- Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope (Nintendo Switch)
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (PS5)
- FIFA 23 (PS5)
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (PS4)
- The Last of Us Part I Remastered (PS5)
- Nier: Automata The End of Yora Edition (Nintendo Switch)
- Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart (PS5)
What does this October top 10 tell us?
If we look at this classification we get two clear conclusions. The first is that the franchises work, so it is even understandable that Electronic Arts and Activision trust everything every year to the new installments to maintain their economy; and the second is that both Nintendo Switch like PlayStation (it doesn’t matter if PS4 or PS5) leave no room for Xbox nowhere.
It is obvious that Spain is territory, as far as desktop consoles are concerned, PlayStation. It was with PS2 when there was no opposition from any brand and it was with PS3 despite the fact that in many parts of the world (such as the United Kingdom or the USA) Microsoft ate the toast of Sony with its Xbox 360. Thus that if you are one of the few Gauls who resist the onslaught of those crazy Romans from your Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S village, remember that you will always have Game Pass.
