Time for the NPD Group's monthly recap of the PC gaming world's sales trends. While this data only covers bricks-n-mortar sales - and as such doesn't give us the whole picture - with so many high-profile PC titles being released in the month it looks a lot more, well, respectable than normal. While previous months have seen NPD's charts looking like a Maxis/Blizzard reach-around, October is full of new, "proper" games, like Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Red Alert 3 and Crysis: Warhead. 1. Fallout 3 2. Spore 3. Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy 4. Far Cry 2 5. Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning 6. WoW: Battle Chest 7. The Sims 2 Apartment Life Expansion Pack 8. Fallout 3 Collectors Ed 9. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe 10. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 11. World Of Warcraft 12. Civilization IV: Colonization 13. WoW: Burning Crusade 14. Crysis: Warhead 15.
