Amazon reveals 2011's best-selling PC games Amazon has revealed last year's best-selling PC games, both physical and through digital distribution.
Speaking to Joystiq, the giant e-tailer's list had very little surprises in the physical copy market, although the digital distribution list did offer a surprise at the top.

Leading the physical list, as expected, was Call of Duty: MW3. The game brought in over $1 billion in revenue, and is a blockbuster by any standard. On the digital side, COD was not as popular, placing in 8th. Following behind COD in physical sales were non-surprises like Just Dance, Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and Batman: Arkham City.

The leader on the digital side was more surprising, with the list being led by Square Enix's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the third game in the series. The game, while popular, was critically panned for the most part for being "too boring."

Full lists here:

Physical (platforms are combined, but collector's editions are not included)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Just Dance 3
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Battlefield 3
Batman: Arkham City
Madden NFL 12

Just Dance 3, Madden, Gears of War 3, and Just Dance 2 are not PC games. So yeah, nice list of best-selling PC games you have there.
