14 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

The NPD Group has released its data for video game software and hardware sales in the United States for the month of May 2022 (courtesy of NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella on Twitter) and there's been some interesting shuffling around where the best-selling games of the month are concerned.

It is still the best-selling game of the year, though that's not a surprise to anyone.

14 days ago   |   By VG 247

There is a popular thought that, due to several delays, 2022 isn't going to be the bumper year for video games that was predicted (following several delays in 2021 due to Covid). Following a refreshingly different Pokemon game and clear Game of the Year frontrunner, Elden Ring, we hit a rough patch and the rest of the year without Starfield or Breath of the Wild 2 seems a little bleak. Or does it? Are we just getting a bit too obsessed with the gigantic AAA mega hits and ignoring everything else? I love video games. I've loved them for as long as I can remember. As someone who is turning...
