It's NPD sales day today at Kotaku Tower, which means not only console sales data, but PC data as well. Like the top 20-selling retail PC games for the month of April.
Note these are only retail games. So the list doesn't include titles downloaded over services like Steam and Direct2Drive. But hey, while it's not perfect reading, it's still interesting reading.
Or, it would be if games like Empire: Total War were at the top. But they're not. With Empire and Dawn of War II dropping down the charts, it's left to Warcraft and The Sims to cosy back up to the top spots. Boring. And, uh, what's going on at #20? Anyone? Ideas?
