Thanks to another slow week, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was able to finish in 1st for a fourth straight week. If it reaches #1 again this week, it will tie LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for the most consecutive victories for a LEGO title.

Overall UK sales are down 29% week-over-week, and that benefited FIFA 16, which dropped 13% but rose five places on the chart to finish in 2nd. Elsewhere, likely due to the success of Pokemon Go, three Pokemon games re-entered the top 40: Omega Ruby in 17th, Alpha Sapphire in 24th, and Y in 29th.

Here’s the 20 best-selling retail games in the UK for the week ending July 23, 2016, according to GfK Chart-Track:

  1. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (down 39%)
  2. FIFA 16 (down 13%)
  3. Overwatch (down 30%)
  4. Grand Theft Auto V
  5. Doom
  6. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
