Best-selling computer and video games ranked by retail sales volume in Germany in 2018 (in 1,000 copies)

Best-selling video games ranked by sales volume in Germany 2018 The football simulation game FIFA 19 for PS4 was the bestselling computer and video game in Germany in 2018, with more than 1.33 million copies sold. For Western and adventure fans, Red Dead Redemption 2 followed with almost 1.1 million copies, and Spider-Man brought up the top three. Both games were also developed for PS4.
Strategy and action most popular

Despite this success, in general sales revenue from computer and video games has been falling in Germany. In 2018, revenue amounted to around 1.1 billion euros, compared to 1.64 billion euros ten years ago. One of the possible explanations is the emergence of gaming apps in the last decade and the rising use of mobile devices to play. The industry is facing the challenges that come with changing consumer habits. Gamers still have clear preferences on which type of video games they like to play, with strategy and action being the most popular choices among German consumers.

Increased consumer spending

Despite falling sales figures, optimistic predictions are being made for the future. Consumer spending on video games in Germany is predicted to increase to 5.17 billion euros by 2022. Of course, this could also mean that games will simply become more expensive.
