Ubisoft has finished 2012 on a high with Far Cry 3 topping the UK charts, thanks in no small part to some tasty price reductions. 

It’s Ubisoft’s first end-of-the-year No. 1 since Assassin’s Creed debuted back in 2007. 

It’s also the first time that Call of Duty: Black Ops II has slipped from the top spot since release seven weeks ago.

Full chart below.

It's a shame Battlefield 3 fell out of the Top 20. What a great game. I've spent so much time over the holidays playing it with friends, yet I've owned it since release day.

@2 true true, it is a shame to see it fall out but..

They deserve it to not be in the top 20 with what they are doing to it,
When game was released it took 3 or 4 RPGs to plow up a tank, helicopters could be shot down, flares didn't work against guided shells/javelins so you could hit helis with them, stingers could be used at a longer range, etc etc...

Now, tank takes 2 RPGs, helicopters are invincible, flares works against laser guidance (how?), and you basically have to be able to see what the color the pilots eyes are in order to be able to use the stinger.

Of course this is in my opinion but I think bf3 isnt much fun anymore.

@2 I thought the same thing but then again, it has been in that list for over a year, which is pretty amazing.

@6 I see your point but helicopters were much stronger in the original build. Since they took away the 2nd countermeasure they are much more vulnerable than before.

Haven't played AC III in weeks. Has there been any word on when the first DLC is coming out? Seems weird that they're selling a Season Pass but haven't mention any intended release dates, though they might be learning from Rockstar's mistake where they announced a vague release schedule for Max Payne 3's DLC and still couldn't meet those vague deadlines of 'Summer' and 'Fall'.

Would like something else for FC3 as well, maybe an update that brings back the enemies after you've fucked every outpost up so there's at least something to do.

I'm amazed I noticed this news post amid my Far Cry 3 playing. That game is immersive like you wouldn't believe. If you haven't got it yet, throw money at your screen as fast as you can.

@13 totally agree mate. Don't have a lot of time for gaming these days being I have a 18 month year old daughter, but managed to slot in a 5 hour session today while my wife and daughter were out. It's a game that when I'm not playing, Im thinking about how much I want to play the game.

Fifa 13 is due to it being reduced to £25-£33 at most places too.

Personally I think this is how it should of been since FC3 got released, it's a bloody amazing game and for anybody on the fence about getting it, get it, find a few buddys and do the map editor it's a blast!

It's good to see Far Cry 3 reaching top spot. It's the best FPS i've played prob since Quake. And Vaas is one of the greatest game villains ever

Slightly discounted Skyrim DLC might push it up next week? But 60 weeks is amazing. Is there any records for that type of thing? Though I suspect Halo 3 might hold it.

why don't game devs realise that selling your game for around the £20-£25 mark means a lot more sales for your game?

To see Far Cry 3 above the Call of Duty juggernaut is a welcome albeit surprising result during the holiday season.

I haven't played far cry 3 yet as I am trying to stay off my xbox until GTA 5 comes out but might pick it up eventually as I have heard some good things.

It's amazing how many people who don't give a damn about BO2 care about it, I wouldn't be surprised if it was back at no 1 next week as long as there are no more deals.

Is far cry 3 a open world game like skyrim where you can go anywhere in the game world or is it like Red Dead . Where most of the world is locked till your a certain way through the main story

@32 Most of it is open world. The southern island might be locked (never tried going over there before the story wanted tme to), but it's much smaller than the northern island

I work in a supermarket and since the price drop I've seen a huge amount of people buy far cry, doesn't surprise me it's #1.
Apparently it's really good.
I've only played far cry instincts briefly so don't know much about the series. But I've only heard great things about the game

I think there some reasons why Skyrim been holds in charts for longer time since launched in 2011.

Here some reasons as possible:

Some people wait for better updated to fixed many bugs and glitches

Some people wait for Skyrim with full DLCs releases

Some people might trade in once they completed Skyrim then re-buy to get first DLC then raise and repeat for 2nd and 3rd Story drive DLCs.

Some more numbers of new players is in interested into Skyrim.

This is why might possible why Skyrim been on charts almost over one year. :p

Skyrim is one of best games of all-time. :)

@6
you're an idiot, with the recent Aftermath DLC I'd definitely say it deserves to be in the top 20

As for your invalid, incorrect points they did it to balance the game out, who the fuck wants to shoot a tank 5-6 times to watch the guy run out? It's also 3 rockets to disable and 4 to destroy from the front or sides and 3 rockets from the back.

The stinger/IGLA has always been crap and helicopters are destroyed from 1 rpg hit or 2 lock on launcher missiles not very "invincible" at all. Sounds like if you had it your way the USAS would still be the noob cannon and you'd be that guy spraying down corridors on metro with it.
