February 2010 PC game retail sales sees Sims 3 and Star Trek Online on top

As has been shown in recent surveys, PC gaming is still moving more into digital downloads than games being sold in boxes in retail stores. However the NPD Group still looks at PC games sold in brick-and-mortar locations and they have now released the top 20 PC games sold in the US in retail stores.

The top four places belong to The Sims 3 and Star Trek Online. In fact the small expansion pack for The Sims 3, High-End Loft Stuff, was the number one best selling PC game last month. Star Trek Online took over the number two and number four (for the Collector's Edition) spots, with the main Sims 3 game in at number three.

It's interesting to compare this list with, say, the Steam weekly top 10 list. There's no Sims 3 game listed on Steam's best selling game list while Modern Warfare 2, ranked in the top five on Steam's list for some time, only comes in at number 11 on NPD's list.

You can check out the full top 20 list after the break:
