Fallout Games Took Out Four Spots In The Aussie Top 10 Charts

Bloody lovely.

It’s no secret that the world of Fallout has recaptured the imaginations of fans everywhere, and no doubt created a few new ones, after the debut of Prime Video’s television adaptation earlier this month.

With Fallout 5 still a long ways off, and evidence to suggest the whole world has turned back to the earlier games, it seems audiences in Australia and New Zealand have had the same idea with the most recent charts from the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) showing that not one but four separate Fallout titles cracked the Top 10 charts in the week the show launched.

At the top of the pops for both countries, unsurprisingly, was the most recent mainline entry in 2015’s Fallout 4, which pushed Helldivers 2 down to the #2 spot for both regions. In Australia, Fallout: New Vegas managed to crack the 3rd position while the MMO-like Fallout 76 and 2008’s Fallout 3 nabbed spots #5 and #8 respectively. Over with our friends in NZ, New Vegas, 76 and Fallout 3 ranked as #6, #7 and #10 in that order.

Here’s the complete Top 10 rankings* for both Australia and New Zealand:

In his review of the first season of Fallout, which premiered in full on Prime Video this month, Brodie wrote, “With a surprisingly riveting original story to tell, Fallout is a rollicking ride through all-too familiar wastes. It might not prove to set the world on fire, though with enough fan service to shake a Ripper at, it’s assured to start a flame in the hearts of long-time fans.”
