The NPD Group has just shared a report on the game industry for the second quarter of 2022 (April, May and June), and players in the United States continue to gobble up Switch hardware like none other.

While the report doesn’t give actual numbers, it does state that the Switch was the leader in terms of units sold. As is usually the case, the PlayStation 5 generated the highest dollar sales in the second quarter. This shouldn’t be a surprise, as the PS5 is $400 for the digital edition, and $500 for the disc-based option.

The NPD also revealed the best-selling and most-played games of Q2 2022 in the U.S.. They didn’t share these games in terms of sales or time-sink overall, so here’s the full list in no particular order.

  • Among Us

  • Bingo Blitz
  • Call of Duty: Warzone
  • Candy Crush Saga
