It shojuld not be a surprise to anyone, but EA's Madden NFL series is massively popular. I guess hype to the latest entry, Madden 19, was at its highest because game originates out to record-breaking sales. Not only was it the largest launch in Madden history since Madden NFL Overdrive Coins nevertheless it also became the top selling game of August 2018. If that wasn't enough, now it is the fourth biggest selling game of 2018.
This should not be too shocking as Madden has historically been the greatest seller of August. NPD Analyst Mit Piscatella recalls, "Since 2000, Madden NFL Football has been the top-selling game Buy Madden NFL Overdrive Coins of August each and every year, together with the exceptions of 2011 and 2012, when Madden NFL launched inside the September tracking period." Guess which games were the top selling of such two Septembers? (The answer is Madden)
