Interview: L.A. Noire's Patrick Fischler Spills The Beans On Playing Mickey Cohen

The industry analysts at the NPD Group have released the video game sales numbers for May 2011, and the biggest selling game of the month was (insert drumroll here): LA Noire. Rockstar's fedora-simulator beat out Brink for the the top slot, as well as outselling Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat. Call of Duty: Black Ops is still on the best-seller chart, in spite of having been released back in November. 

Overall, May was a crappy month for video games, sales-wise. This was the lowest month of sales of physical game packages since October of 2006, but the software numbers are a bit skewed by the fact that the NPD Group doesn't include digital distribution, a growing market segment.

According to the NPD Group, May's relatively light sales are mainly due to their just not being all that many games out for gamers to buy that month. "A light slate of new releases is at the heart of this month's performance," the company said in a statement.

Below is a list of May's top-selling games, in order.

  1. L.A. Noire
  2. Brink
  3. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
  4. Portal 2
  5. Mortal Kombat 2011
  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  7. Zumba Fitness: Join the Party
  8. NBA 2K11
  9. Just Dance 2
  10. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
