Sony has released the charts for March on the PlayStation store to highlight which games shone throughout the month. March was a tumultuous month, so it’s always interesting to see what games PlayStation players were using to pass the time.

The charts are split into four different categories, with the first being an overall chart. The three following charts are split into virtual reality games, free-to-play games, and DLC & Expansions.

Call of Duty: Warzone, which has been incredibly popular since release, topped one of these charts. Infinity Ward’s classic franchise hit the top of the Free to Play chart, beating out Fortnite and Apex Legends. The title’s companion, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, also beat out DOOM EternalGrand Theft Auto V, and MLB The Show 20 to top the overall chart.

The overall chart is as follows:

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  2. MLB The Show 20
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. DOOM Eternal
  5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered
  6. Minecraft
  7. NBA 2K20
  8. Nioh 2
  10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  11. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
  12. Persona 5 Royal
  13. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  14. EA Sports FIFA 20
  15. Rocket League
  16. Resident Evil 2
  17. The Sims 4
  18. EA Sports NHL 20
  19. DOOM
  20. EA Sports UFC 3

While some of the titles are surprising to see on the list, some were a guarantee. It’s a bit interesting to see Grand Theft Auto V still getting near the top of charts so long after release, especially since – with the exception of microtransactions – there hasn’t been a huge amount of content to hit the game in a while. It’s also strange to see THE FOREST so high on the list, beating out newer and better-funded games like The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2.

At the same time, some of the titles came out pretty late in March and still managed to get up in the list. DOOM Eternal came out on the 20th alongside Animal Crossing: New Horizons with both being some of the most highly anticipated games to come out of the industry in recent years.

Call of Duty: Warzone managing to unseat Fortnite from the throne is interesting to see, and it might be saying something about the gaming industry as a whole that the top 3 free games are all triple-A battle royales. Hopefully there will be some more variety coming into the gaming industry soon as the battle royale trend dies down, but the millions who enjoy these games clearly don’t think that needs to be done.

So now that we have a clear visualization of what games kept PlayStation players going during an incredibly difficult month on a global scale, what games kept you entertained during social distancing?
