Sony has revealed the top downloaded games of 2021 on the PlayStation Store. The list covers the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PlayStation VR, and free-to-play titles on both PlayStation 4 and 5 platforms. Regionally, the lists are split between US/Canada and EU, showcasing the gaming trends of PlayStation users in each area.

We can see the usual trends of American audiences favouring sports games involving basketball, football, and baseball, while European audiences opt for sports games featuring soccer. There’s also the no-brainer of Call of Duty squashing the competition, as they often do.

The only category that seems somewhat consistent is the VR Games, with Beat SaberJob Simulator, and SUPERHOT VR each gaining the top 3 spots respectively in both regions. Here are the lists for you to ponder like your favourite orb, with PlayStation 4 and 5 being condensed to the top 10.
