Dead Island: Riptide has stumbled its way to the number one spot this week.

The open-world co-op zombie title may have been on the receiving end of some less than stellar reviews, but the love of gamers for the undead is er... undying.

The same could also be said for Star Trek. The co-op shooter has beam into third place in the charts, despite a critical mauling. Editor Dan's been wrestling with it this weekend, so expect the full, ugly story soon.

Despite it's very average reviews, I am having a blast with Riptide, it's so much better than the first DI, sure it has it's trademark Deep Silver glitches, but what a awesome game.

So many games don't deserve to be on this list, so many of them just utter trash riddled with bugs and glitches and no patches in sight or just boring and repetitive. im looking at you COD/Fifa/GOW. It's 2013 and times for games to take a stand and demand finished products, I don't expect to walk into a restaurant and have to pay extra for the the cutlery to eat with so why should we stand for this any longer. Fix your shit then release it. out of the 20 games on this list at least 50% have issues that are unfixed due to laziness

Colonial Marines, Star Trek... even if a game gets bad reviews, a brand is a brand that loyal fans will buy.

@3 I was nodding in agreement with your comment until I saw the games you listed. Really you're going to pick on small flaws in those great games rather than those that are actually bad? (Riptide, Star Trek, Aliens, Sniper, Army of Two...)

i mentioned those 3 games in terms of them, being just boring and copy and paste of their old games

Riptide really isn't that bad, but I guess it's your own opinion.

On topic, I can't believe BioShock dropped to 5th place, having even Tomb Raider above it now.

Gears judgment, aliens and star trek should all just be burned. It sickens me that people make money out of scamming people by selling them such utter tripe.

Is this list based on unique users or new retail sales? I see lots of lists, just wondering how this one is put together.

I finished Riptide yesterday, took about 30 hrs didn't encounter even one glitch. Loved every second of it. Have not played co-op yet though, could be where the glitches are.
I didn't have any glitches with the first Dead Island through my 82 hrs of play time either though.

Kind of disappointed myself, I played Black Ops II today, which, I love, and I encountered lag in the single player game. I was only trying to jump over a pit where a helicopter was shooting at the house I was previously in...games in single player should never experience lag.

Im glad to see Aliens holding in there as I thought the game was very decent and quite enjoyable, bad reviews be damned. Same as Riptide,a few glitchs and kinda ok graphics does not stop it from being an incredibly enjoyable game.
