PlayStation’s top downloaded games for December 2021 have been revealed, and across North American and European regions, Among Us rose to the top on both PS5 and PS4 consoles. Among Us made its console debut in December, and at a $4 price-point, the popular social game was an easy purchase for fans and newcomers alike.
While players were trying to figure out just who the most suspicious person around them was, the rest of the top ten featured newer games such as Call of Duty: Vanguard, Madden NFL 22, and Battlefield 2042 in the US and Canadian charts, while the European lists had a similar spread of games in its top ten list.

A number of older games also reached the top 10, as Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the remastered edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man were some of the most-downloaded games of the year across the world, while Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also earned a spot on the US chart. Considering that the Nordic sandbox was drastically discounted last year and came with a free upgrade option for newer consoles, it’s not too surprising to see it resurface on the charts.
In the VR department, Beat Saber was the most-downloaded PSVR game in the US, Canada, and Europe, while the rest of those lists were populated by Job Simulator, Swordsman VR, and Superhot VR. For those players looking for a free-to-play experience, Fortnite was firmly entrenched at the top, while the rest of the world delved into games such as Genshin Impact, Destiny 2, and Rocket League.
The full rankings for North America and Europe, as provided on the official PlayStation Blog post, are listed below.
