According to a recent poll of Amazon customers, more people wanted No Man’s Sky than any other title. While not exactly a scientific survey (customers who took the poll were entered to win a gaming bundle prize), the results are still interesting: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was solidly middle-of-the-pack in the #5 position, while Mass Effect: Andromeda brought up the rear in dead last.

Here’s the complete list, via Gameranx:

  1. No Man’s Sky

  2. Battlefield 1

  3. Mafia 3

  4. FIFA 17

  5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

  6. Ghost Recon Wildlands

  7. Final Fantasy 15

  8. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

  9. Watch Dogs 2

  10. Mass Effect Andromeda

No Man’s Sky releases on Aug. 9, with the game officially finalized and set for release as of this month:

No Man’s Sky promises to bring the magic of exploration back to sci-fi games, with procedurally-generated worlds spiraling endlessly into the cosmos and the feeling of adventure and exploration that can only really come from space, the final horizon. There’s been a lot of promises made with No Man’s Sky, but only time will tell whether or not developer Hello Games has been able to keep those promises.

As for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the latest installment in the hallowed Zelda franchise appears to be taking a new direction inspired by open-world games like Skyrim and Witcher 3. In our hands-on with Breath of the Wild at E3 2016, we came away astonished by the inventiveness and beauty of what we saw:

“All in all, my impression of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is of a wide, vast world that feels touchably real, with warm colors, stylish artwork marrying the very best of Twilight Princess and Wind Waker, a mystery promising enough to rival the timeline schism of Ocarina of Time and mechanics that borrow from the very best of open survival RPGs without compromising the Legend of Zelda feel or aesthetic. If the rest of Breath of the Wild is as natural and as compelling as the demo I played, classic status is assured.”
