'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring - because they'd all been dismembered by a guy wearing metal pyjamas and carrying a mace. Or should that be the knight before Christmas? Anyway...
It's great to be surprised at this time of year - though not in a 'someone has stolen all of the presents' way - and who could have predicted the number one download at online retailer Green Man Gaming would be Chivalry: Medieval Warfare ?
The multiplayer hack and slash features epic battles almost as bloody as scraps between bargain-hunting harpies in the Boxing Day sales queues. And this former number one sits atop the Christmas tree thanks to a major surge on downloads this week, seeing off competition from some big names.
Here's the full list of Christmas chart-toppers:
2. Guild Wars 2
4. Far Cry 3 (EU Only)
5. Tomb Raider (pre-purchase)
7. Company of Heroes 2 (pre-purchase)
