March’s top 10 best-selling games 

Starting in March, millions of Americans were forced indoors by the coronavirus pandemic as shelter in place orders took place and social distancing was encouraged.


Unsurprisingly, at the same time, video game hardware and software sales skyrocketed. Millions of people, many with young children, suddenly needed ways to occupy vast quantities of time at home.

According with businessinsider website, as such, Nintendo’s Switch has been outright sold out. The company’s latest major game, “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” is outright having a moment. And the latest “Call of Duty” is more popular than ever — despite having launched months ago.
