No change for a firm favourite with our Gamewagon parties for the past year FIFA. The latest version  ‘FIFA 14’  remains at No 2 in this weeks video game charts.

Warner’s ‘Lego Marvel Superheroes’ remains at No 6 and we will be reviewing this as a likely Xmas wish list item. We were slightly disappointed by lack of 4 player modes as the Lego titles maintain their 2 player “Dad and Lad” mantra.

Ubisoft climbs 2 places with ‘Just Dance 2014’ at No 7 and is a great title for the girls to have their own strictly themed dance off. No matter what format you have this game has become the standard and gives plenty of options to co-operate or compete.

As far as racing titles go we have always favoured Forza but this week Sony’s ‘Gran Turismo 6’ for PS3 has made an appearance in the top 20. For motor heads it is worth a look but initial reviews are patchy so we suggest you give it a go before purchasing.

Other Xmas favourites are likely to be Skylanders Swap Force and Disney Infinity as they try to convince us all to not just buy the game but also the additional characters that make the different games come alive.

Minecraft (at No 13) is still extremely popular and the multiplayer modes of the Xbox version are a hit with the Minecraft fanatics. Those that have played iPad versions struggle a little with the learning curve but soon start crafting as they always did.

Stunning graphics and fast, furious and fun co-operative play are sure to make this a winner.

Hanging on to a place in the top 20 (despite slow WiiU console sales) is Super Mario 3D World. We have a review for this game on it’s way and we are sure that it will have a big part to play in our Gamewagon parties as the multiplayer games are fast, furious and fun.

Knack (No 18) is another recent release for the PS4 and is a great little game in the mould of the single player / two player co-operative play Lego titles. We’d have preferred a 4 player option to make it a hit in the Gamewagons but it may still be a solid choice if Santa brings a PS4 for Xmas.
