For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

NPD Reports Strong Sales of Madden, Gears of War, and Dead Island

There have been a ton of new releases lately with brand new games from August and September flooding store shelves. As disappointed as I am to report, Deus Ex: Human Revolution didn't make the top 5 best-selling titles last month.

Here's what did!

1. Madden NFL 12
2. Gears of War 3
3. Dead Island
4. FIFA Soccer 12
5. NHL 12

Gotta love Madden's continue dominance, and no one should be surprised by Gears of War 3's strong sales. I am taken back by Dead Island's dominance in the market. With review scores tending low on the scales, Dead Island is probably surprising Deep Silver and Square Enix.

Guess that means we're in for more zombies! Take a look at the rest of the top 10 chart and then organize them into your own fantasy list.

6. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
7. Resistance 3
8. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
9. Call of Duty: Black Ops
10. Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine
