Overwatch does well in June, according to NPD Group, but overall game sales were down 26%

We previously reported that NPD Group, a market research firm that reports on game sales among other things, would be incorporating digital download sales in their upcoming reports. June 2016 was the first such report, and the results show Overwatch as the number one seller overall while the gaming industry in general took a bit of a tumble, down 26% in June.

As Gameinformer reports, the top 10 games are as follows:

1. Overwatch*
2. Grand Theft Auto V
3. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
4. Doom 2016**
5. Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst
6. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End**
7. NBA 2K16
8. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
9. Destiny: The Taken King
10. Minecraft**
** No digital sales included in ranking
* No Battle.net PC sales included

Given the changes to the reporting process, these numbers need to be massaged a little to compare to past reports. Nevertheless, kudos to Overwatch for dominating the sales number for June 2016. Let us know in the comments where your favorite game falls on this list.
